Assessing Your Safety
After a fire is over you may want to dive headfirst and go back into the home or business. While this choice is understandable, it can be problematic. While the fire may have been put out, the threat may be looming. Fires can wreak havoc on the structure of a building and cause it to be inhabitable or unsafe. Assess your safety before going inside or leave it to the profession fire remediation companies!
Tip #1: Seeking Local Companies
Local companies are going to be your best bet when it comes to fire remediation. These companies are able to get to your home or business in a short amount of time and are able to begin the process quicker than a non-localized business.
This part of the process is important for several reasons. From their time getting out there to their time fixing up your home or business. Local companies are always a fantastic choice as they know and understand the area and need to navigate little to your home or business.
United Water Restoration Group is a fire remediation company that franchises our name out to local owners in areas that are interested. While we have our corporate office located in Florida, we have many locations around the United States. These franchises are owned and operated with United Water Restoration Group’s practices in place.
Our structure allows for us to have a local office potentially near you with certified technicians who adhere to our company’s rules and ideals. We believe this is important as it allows for us to have offices run and owned by locals who best know their area.
Tip #2: Discuss Your Options
Talk is cheap, but, ultimately, worthwhile. If you’re looking for a fire remediation company then the first step of the process should be you reaching out. United Water Restoration Group has a 24-hour hotline that is open 7 days a week for your convenience. This hotline will place you in direct contact with one of our certified technicians who will seek to better understand your situation. They will also schedule an appointment around your needs to ensure we can get the job done. If your area is experiencing low service requests we can have a technician at your property in a matter of a few hours.
Once our technician is there they can begin inspecting the home or business and assessing your damages. Our technicians take pride in their service and our company focuses heavily on your experience. This is why they are willing to explain the entire situation to you. They will go over their assessment, whether it be with their words or by showing you visually. Our technician will also go over the next steps that need to be taken. The best part? This part of the process is entirely free.
We at United Water Restoration Group understand that you have other choices for fire remediation companies. Our goal is to get your home or business back to normal while also helping you feel comfortable with our process.
Tip #3: Licenses and Practices
Before committing to a fire remediation company, it is recommended you do a full scope of their license and insurance. With how tumultuous fire damage can be, you will want to be sure you’re hiring professionals. With one wrong move a wall can come crumbling down and cause further damage after the fire is over. If you hire a person not affiliated with a fire remediation company, you open yourself up to a plethora of issues.
While we at United Water Restoration Group don’t have on-the-job accidents often, they do happen. If something like this happens, we have additional sources for you to ensure your home/business and wallet’s safety. Our licenses ensure that our practices are up-to-date and current.
Tip #4: State of the Art Equipment
The state of this industry changes rather often. At United Water Restoration Group, our equipment is always up to date to ensure your home or business’ fire remediation process. The equipment used is as important as the people using the equipment. If a company is unable to keep up with standards it can increase your cost and overall time needed to restore your property to normal.
Tip #5: A Company That Respects You
While business is always about making money, paid services should ALWAYS be administered with respect. Respect for you, your safety, your property, and affected belongings. Not only can the United Water Restoration Group restore your home, but we will give you and your belongings respect. Our process is about restoring your home to the way it was and that includes doing our best to restore affected items.
Tip #6: Immediate Response Time
An immediate response time is something you should always look for after dealing with a disaster. You shouldn’t have to wait weeks or even months until someone is able to help assess your home and get the ball rolling. At United Water Restoration Group, we pride ourselves in our steadfast ability to help our customers. Our hotline, (800) 430-5838, is open 24-hours a day, 7 days a week.

Tip #7: One-Stop Shop
While you may think the fire damage is the only pressing concern here, it isn’t. Fire damage can introduce many other issues in the home, like structural instability, water damage, soot build-up, and lingering smoke damage. While some fire remediation companies only deal with the fire aspect, United Water Restoration Group deals with it all. We can help drain excess water, remove smoke, and restore your home or business fully. This cuts the hardship of you having to find multiple companies to do one job.
