Fire is a tragedy that occurs in both domestic and commercial settings. Even if the fire is contained, properties will still suffer from smoke damage which, if left untreated, can have disastrous results. This is why it is essential that you enlist the help of specialists in fire and smoke damage restoration.
Smoke particles can cause serious damage to your property and its contents because they are generally acidic, and therefore corrosive; they are also carcinogenic which means they can pose a great risk to people's health, even in small amounts. Even the personnel operating the clean-up require comprehensive training and personal protective equipment (PPE).
Here at Relkogroup, we have a team of specialists fully trained and experienced in dealing with all types of fire and smoke damage. They will respond to your call promptly and carry out a detailed assessment of the damage.
The initial analysis will allow the team to identify the type of damage and advise what corrective action is required to prevent secondary damage.
Common types of smoke damage include:
Wet Smoke Damage: Typically caused by low heat, smouldering and a strong odour
Dry Smoke Damage: Caused by high temperatures and fast burning fires
Protein Damage: This sort of damage can go undetected as its results are sometimes invisible. Indicators could be discoloured paint and varnish or an extremely pungent odour
Other types of fire damage include fire extinguisher residue, tear gas and fuel oil soot caused by furnaces.
Once the team has determined the extent of the damage, they will review the circumstances and choose the most effective method of cleaning. You will then be provided with a full report on the damage and loss, whilst our fire and smoke damage restoration specialists will proceed to offer assistance and advice throughout the restoration and recovery process.
