Fire Damage

Damage caused by a property fire extends well beyond the physical damage. Such a traumatic event can leave you unsure of what to do, or whom to turn to. At Mesa Restoration, we are fully certified and highly knowledgeable professionals who provide fire and smoke damage restoration. Should the unthinkable happen, we are the people to turn to in restoring your home and making it safe once again. Our fire cleaning services include fire damage restoration, smoke damage cleaning, and contents cleaning.

Smoke Damage Restoration

While fire can cause obvious structural damage to your home or business, there is also a hidden danger present after the flames are extinguished: smoke damage. Even if a fire is small and is extinguished quickly, the smoke released infiltrates walls, floors, ceilings, furniture, etc. Smoke is carcinogenic, or extremely toxic, to inhale. Even if fire damage is minimal, you should seek professional services in remediating any smoke damage. Even if smoke damage seems to “go away” with time, smoke particles from fire get trapped in the microscopic pores of your walls, furniture, and flooring.

Contents Cleaning

We provide contents cleaning to remove smoke damage from your possessions. Using the latest technology, Mesa Restoration offers soft contents (bedding, clothing, towels), electronics, furniture, and hard contents (ceramics, metal, plastics) cleaning.

Fire Damage Restoration Process

Our process entails:

  • Conducting an assessment of damage to determine the amount of fire, smoke, and water damage, to determine a cleanup plan, and to provide an assessment to the insurance
  • company
  • Removal of undamaged items to prevent contamination by smoke
  • Addressing damage to infrastructure such as flooring, walls, roofing, and structural
  • integrity
  • Water removal and restoration work (water damage resulting from extinguishing the fire)

Fire Damage Makes Homes Toxic

As fire consumes a building, the flames cause the release of toxic particles from plastics and chemicals, as well disturbing asbestos containing materials. Don’t risk your health and safety by attempting to remove or clean smoke damaged infrastructure or items. Let the professionals at Mesa Restoration deal with the toxic aftermath of fires.

Fire Damage Tips

Stay Safe

This seems obvious, but every year people get injured or suffer smoke inhalation from entering a fire and smoke damaged building. It’s also likely you don’t have the proper safety equipment such as a respirator. So, leave the inspection and cleanup to professionals.

Be On the Alert for Mold Growth

While mold growth may seem highly unlikely after a fire, water damage from putting out a fire can lead to mold outbreaks. In addition to performing fire cleanups, we also perform water damage cleanups if needed. Learn more about our Water Damage Services here.

Ventilate Interiors

If you absolutely must re-enter your fire damaged home, ventilate the inside by opening

windows and doors to allow fresh air in. This won’t necessarily help with the cleanup process, and won’t aid in protecting your contents from smoke damage, but it will at least make the air slightly more breathable.
