Fire Damage Interior Cleanup
After the exterior of the home is cleaned, the First Response team will move to the interior of the fire-damaged home. The technicians will carefully and cautiously inspect the home for any unstable structures – including the ceiling and the flooring. Plywood boards may be placed over any unstable area.
The fire damage cleanup team will remove any standing water then will open all windows and place fans around the home to increase airflow and circulation. Many homeowners forget about the water damage that occurs when the fire is extinguished. The fans will help dry out the water and prevent mold growth. However, if it is a particularly humid day, the technicians will keep all windows closed to prevent the moisture from entering the fire-damaged home. The team will also dry and remove any wet furniture or other wet surfaces.
