At GC PRO, our team of experts has the experience that will help guide you through the entire restoration process. Here are some helpful tips we have discovered if you find yourself in the process of cleaning your property.

Property Damage Evaluation

The first step in the fire damage cleanup process is evaluating the property damage. Once you evaluate the damage this helps you determine to what extent there has been damage. It will also give feedback to know what needs to be done to restore the property back to its original pre-fire damage state. After the evaluation has been conducted, any and all damaged or charred materials should be removed to prevent toxic build-up. This process can be beyond time-consuming, overwhelming, and emotionally taxing so doing it alone is not always the best or only option available.

Removal & Salvaging Of Belongings

Once the fire-damaged drywall, ceiling tiles, and other charred debris have been removed, it is vital to work as quickly and efficiently as you can to salvage everything that can be preserved. Once these steps are accomplished, it is best to follow up with extensive personal restoration. It can be beneficial to conduct a thorough cleaning and removal of soot, ash, and smoke. 

Conduct Repairs & Replacements

Next in the fire damage restoration process is to repair and replace any damaged items. It is best to remove any unwanted and/or hazardous materials as soon as possible to prevent continual contamination. Once these measures have been taken, you can be confident that your property, whether home or business, will be back to its pre-fire condition quicker than if you had lingered in starting the restoration clean-up process.
