We are There – Start to Finish
After a house fire, you can count on our restoration professionals for complete, end-to-end services. We will thoroughly assess the damage and address every critical need to ensure your home's restoration is handled properly..
Our steps follow the general timeline:
- Thorough Damage Assessment – Once it is safe to enter, our restoration team will assess all safety concerns, fire and smoke damage, and water intrusion sustained during the event that occurred. The process usually involves assessing the scope of the flames and where smoke has penetrated the structure, noting how extensive the cleanup is expected to be. This step will also involve inspecting contents to determine what is salvageable and what should get discarded. At the end of this phase, we will better understand the work and how long the project may take. We will also begin documenting the project thoroughly, which will help with your insurance claim.
- Securing the Property and Debris Removal – After the assessment, the next step is securing the property with fencing and removing all outlying debris around the perimeter. We perform tarp-up and boarding services to protect your interior from intruders and the elements so that restoration can occur. This step also helps to seal off any areas of your property that may not have been impacted by the fire and minimizes cross-contamination.
- Demolition, Water Removal Services, and Drying – Any personal property gets removed for further drying and cleaning, and damaged flooring, drywall, and other materials get removed as necessary for replacement. Our crews work with commercial equipment to dry the structure, such as air movers and dehumidifiers, to return relative humidity (RH) to normal levels.
- Smoke Odor Removal – Our odor control technicians (OCT) use specialized agents to eliminate smoke odors and sanitize surfaces so your interior smells fresh and clean. The Lightspeed Restoration team is dedicated to ensuring you have no lingering reminders of the fire once you return to your home. This cleanup process also involves addressing air ducts to address any debris, smoke, and soot that may have traveled and settled within the system.
