Fire damage restoration can be a tricky task to accomplish after a fire damaging event. These services can be utilized in numerous situations. From smoke damage cleaning to major reconstruction, we can handle it all. After a major or minor event, fire damage restoration may be required to return your home or business back to pre-loss conditions. Fires are more common than most think and can cost a building owner quite a bit in repairs, in 2019 fires cost $12.3 billion in direct property damage. According to the U.S. Fire Administration, this number increases every year.
United Water Restoration Group, a company that focuses on water, mold, and fire damage restoration would like to discuss how we administer our services. We understand that a fire event can be chaotic and lead to a difficult recovery of your home or business.
Step #1: Emergency Contact
To start our fire damage restoration process, the first step is contacting our emergency hotline. Out hotline, (800) 430-5838, is open 24-hours a day, 7 days a week. Once you call our hotline, we will connect you with a technician within a few minutes. Our technician will go over your situation and need for services. If it is the case of an emergency, our technicians can be at your property in as little as an hour. Our technicians can come to your property in the event of an emergency and also have flexible scheduling to help coordinate around your needs.
Step #2: Inspection and Assessment
Once our technicians reach your property at the agreed-upon time, they will begin their inspection and assessment. This phase of the fire damage restoration is to find all damage and create an accurate estimate. While our technicians are at your home, they are able to give you a fully detailed plan of action and assessment.
Step #3: Emergency Tarping & Boarding
Fires can cause certain areas of a home or business to become exposed. If any sections of your property are exposed to the elements, our restorers can administer emergency measures.
Step #4: Water Removal
Though you may not think of water damage after a fire event, it is a possibility. If your property becomes severely damaged and exposed, water can accrue and cause further damage. Water damage is also common after firefighters assist in putting the fire out with their hoses. United Water Restoration Group can provide water damage restoration services if necessary.

Step #5: Cleaning Soot & Smoke Damage
After any size fire, smoke can seep into porous materials and cause a lingering smell as well as further deterioration of a material. Soot damage is the direct result of a fire incompletely burning an organic item. This material is black and powdery and can stain areas of your property if not cleaned properly.
Step #6: Sanitizing Affected Areas
Once we’re able to remove the presence of smoke and soot damage, we can begin sanitizing affecting areas of the home. During this step, our technicians will also deodorize affected areas to prevent unpleasant lingering smells.
Step #7: Reconstruction and Restoration
The final step to our fire damage restoration process has our restorers working to bring your property back to its pre-loss conditions. United Water Restoration Group’s extensive network of connected experts allows us to play a hand in every step of the fire damage restoration process.
