A Kitchen Catastrophe

Recently, a retired woman contacted us regarding fire damage restoration. A malfunctioning stove had a pot catch fire in minutes, leading to extensive damage. The woman, who lived alone, attempted to grab the pot, which resulted in minor injuries, but fortunately, there we no life-threatening injuries.

She put out the flames, but the ensuing mess meant her kitchen was unusable for the foreseeable future. The furniture in the adjacent rooms also suffered from fire damage. We dispatched our fire damage restoration team immediately.

When we arrived, our team conducted an assessment to determine the scope of our work. There was a lot of smoke damage to the walls and ceiling, so we knew that would be a priority. In fact, the smoke smell was still noticeable.

We used our state-of-the-art equipment during the fire damage restoration process.

To eliminate the lingering smoke odor, we utilized our industrial air filtration devices with high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) and charcoal filters to remove airborne smoke particles. This step is crucial before cleaning the affected surfaces so that the particles floating throughout the air do not settle on the newly cleaned areas. 

Afterward, we cleaned all the soot from the floor, walls, and ceiling. Then, our technicians cleaned the remaining fire and smoke damage on the affected areas with our potent chemical cleaning products.

We carefully packed our client’s affected belongings and performed content pack-outs as part of the fire remediation process. Our contents team is trained and equipped to handle belongings of any size in all situations. We assess, clean, inventory, store, and ultimately return every item with great care. We also provide comprehensive documentation allowing our clients to fully understand the restoration process.
