MHS Restoration - A Division of McMaid

Fire Damage Cleanup and Restoration

A fire at your home or place of business is one of the most frightening and devastating experiences you’ll ever have. Fire threatens people’s safety and can leave catastrophic destruction to your home or commercial property in its wake. Beyond damage from the actual fire, residual smoke and water or chemical damage from firefighting efforts multiply the damage to a building’s structural components and contents.

When fire occurs, you may be tempted to retrieve possessions and valuables as well as get started on the cleanup process as quickly as possible. Don’t attempt to go it alone. The work involved in cleaning and renovating after a fire is both difficult and dangerous. You need a professional fire damage restoration company with the expertise and experience to handle the job safely, thoroughly, and properly.

Fire destroys virtually all types of buildings and building materials. To add insult to injury, the water and chemical agents used to extinguish a fire can also cause considerable damage.

MHS Restoration’s Fire Damage Process

As soon as fire officials and emergency responders give approval to enter the property, we get to work. As a first step, we consider the following in order to develop the most appropriate cleanup and restoration plan:

  • Fire classification as either electrical or based on what was consumed – paper, trash, grease, metal, oil, gasoline, etc.
  • Temperature of the fire
  • How much time has passed between when the fire was put out and when cleanup begins
  • Extent of fire/water/chemical damage
  • Level and extent of smoke penetration
  • Condition of the contents – structural, equipment, personal belongings – and if they are salvageable
    Our comprehensive restoration process covers every detail. We will:

1. Board up and Cover the Roof – If necessary, we place protective barriers to protect your property from weather damage, animals, and vandalism.
2. Salvage and Clean Contents – In collaboration with you, we identify salvageable items and set them aside for cleaning and restoration.
3. Remove Debris – We remove and properly dispose of all debris and items that cannot be salvaged.
4. Clean, Sanitize, Deodorize – Using only safe, approved methods and products, we thoroughly clean, sanitize, and deodorize all structural components that took on fire, water, or smoke damage, including: floors, carpets, ceilings, walls, furnishings, appliances, fixtures, electronics.
