Fires can cause serious damage to residential and commercial properties. In a very short period of time, you can experience widespread destruction of your property and the items inside. Even in situations where a fire has been contained and only impacted a small area of the property, you most likely will have smoke and soot that travels to other areas, leaving unpleasant odors and residue throughout the building. If you had a large fire that triggered a response from your fire suppression system or your local fire department, you will have experienced water damage as well.

There are many potential causes of fire damage. Some of the most common include:
Your priority after a fire is to make sure everyone is safe. If anyone suffered injuries in the fire, you should seek emergency medical assistance, including calling 911 if necessary. Once you know everyone is safe, take the following steps:
The damage to your property doesn’t stop once the fire is put out. Airborne smoke and soot residues will continue to travel throughout the property and settle on just about every surface. This smoke and soot can get trapped in ductwork and absorbed into furniture, clothing, bedding, and carpeting, leaving behind oily or sticky residues and odors which can be extremely difficult to remove.
Because smoke and soot damage can impact every area of the property, attempting to clean it yourself will often prove ineffective. This important task is best left to professionals. At Burke’s Restoration, we have the specialized tools and equipment to treat and remove soot residues and smoke odors properly.
At Burke’s Restoration, we’re committed to working quickly and efficiently to restore your home or business to its pre-damaged condition. To accomplish this goal, we’ve established a meticulous fire damage restoration process that adheres to all industry standards, ensuring all protocols are performed properly every time.
Our process involves the following steps:
Once all the steps listed above have been completed, our team will begin the reconstruction phase of the process. Fires can result in extensive damage to building materials and jeopardize the structural integrity of your property. In many instances, only a portion of your property will need to be repaired or rebuilt. However, cases of severe fire damage which caused the entire structure to be compromised may require the entire property to be rebuilt from the ground up.
At Burke’s Restoration, we have a team of licensed, insured, and registered specialists who can handle all necessary repairs and reconstruction after fire damage. Our comprehensive structural repairs include:
On average, fire damage restoration can take several weeks to several months to complete. The exact length of time it takes to restore your property will depend on the extent of damage sustained. Minor damage can often be restored within a few days or weeks, while extensive damage can take months. If you need to reconstruct the entire property, the timeline can be even longer.
Fire damage restoration of commercial properties typically takes longer to complete than with residential homes. This is primarily due to the difference in the size of commercial and residential buildings.
Electronics can often be more difficult to salvage. Soot can be highly corrosive and may potentially cause devices to short-circuit. Even if your electronics work properly, the fire damage may potentially shorten the lifespan of the device. Always have your electronic devices cleaned by a professional fire damage restoration company before attempting to use them.
While finding a temporary place to live can be a hassle, choosing to live in your fire damaged home while it’s being repaired can present significant safety hazards. This is especially true if the building’s structural integrity has been compromised, your floors have sustained significant damage, or your utilities have been temporarily cut off.
Even in situations where the damage was minor and contained to a small region of the home, the smoke and soot that travels throughout the house may make living in your home unpleasant while all fire damage restoration is completed.
