When your property is damaged by fire, the key concern is restoring things-as-usual, as quickly as possible. We give the owners of the house or office and their insurers a professional assessment of the job, as well as unrivalled execution of the work. We strive to minimise the time a business is out of action, whilst never compromising the quality of our work on property restoration Cambridge.
After the fire been extinguished, what it leaves behind will continue to affect the house. Ash and smoke, if left unhindered, will cause extensive corrosion, etching and discoloration, not to mention the lingering powerful odors. We will clean the fire and smoke damage to stop this before it becomes a major problem, assuming we are contacted soon enough. The first thing that ash does to the home is discolour most surfaces. Anything that is made of plastic or was close to the fire will start discoloring within minutes, and within several hours, fiberglass and finishes on appliances will begin to yellow. Metals may also tarnish. After a few day, the ash will cause walls to discolor permanently, along with clothing and upholstery. Wood and vinyl will need to be refinished or replaced, and metal will start corroding.
The first thing we do when on site at property restoration Peterborough is to identify all affected materials and the source of any odors. The only way to properly clean smoke and fire damage is to be extremely thorough. Ash residue is easily disturbed and can spread through the building with ease, causing nearly everything to need restoration. We identify what can and cannot be salvaged, and will remove any built-up ash residue that is coating surfaces. Once this is done, the restorers will locate the source of the odor, and treat it with specialized detergents that are formulated for neutralizing this kind of odor.
