Fire Damage Restoration

Fires cause extensive damage to both the structural property as well as to the owners’ possessions and furnishings. Water damage is usually inevitable when dealing with fire damage restoration emergencies, as water is commonly used to extinguish the flames. During fires, various toxic gasses and chemical compounds are released that may be detrimental to health. They may cause symptoms such as burning eyes, coughing, and headaches. Severe reactions may include respiratory distress, asthma, wheezing, and difficulty in breathing, among others.

Following fires, property owners have the unpleasant task of dealing with smoke damage, fire damage, soot, and water damages. Soaking wet carpet, smoke permeated walls, soot-covered furniture, and soiled clothing are but a few of the nuances homeowners must deal with after a fire. They also need to take care of insurance paperwork as well as figure out where to stay for the duration of the cleanup and restoration work to their home fire.

First Response is a first class operation. They have assisted our company and myself multiple times over the years; ranging from storm damage of projects under construction, a flooded bathroom, burst hot water heaters, mold clean-up and future mitigation in rental properties, and the delivery and rental of equipment used to self perform jobs. Their response times are incredibly fast and their staff has proven themselves to be courteous, professional, knowledgeable, and always willing to help. Going the extra mile is just what they do!!!I cant recommend them enough.

First Response was quick to send a representative out and immediately started working. The entire process was handled professionally and the employees were very knowledgeable of the work being done. I will use First Response again if needed and I have referred their work to family and friends.

First class service! My only regret was not calling them 4 or 5 hours earlier. Brian, Chris, and team were quick to assess the situation and work with me on a custom remediation plan. They explained everything, including pros and cons of the various options, clearly and completely. I hope I never need this type of service again. But, if I do, I know who to call.

First Response did a superior job of remediating water damage to my home. They were the second company that I called but the only one that I will call in the future. They take their jobs seriously and completely understand the meaning and value of delivering outstanding service. Not only did they correct the problems created by the first remediation company, but they went above and beyond to ensure that their work was done properly and expertly. Robert and Josh and the entire team earn my highest recommendations for service and expertise.

May 31, 2012 my husband and I were notified that we were being forced to move out of our home, at no fault of our own. Needless to say, this news caused a lot of stress for us! My employer, Robert Pulliam - President of First Response, understood the emotions I was going through and offered the company's services to assist in the process of moving. He also allowed me the time off needed to prepare for the move. My husband and I worked diligently over the next month to have everything packed up and ready to be moved out. On the afternoon of June 29th, Robert and a couple of our co-workers came to our home and moved everything out. It was such a tremendous blessing to have the extra man-power!! First Response has extraordinary leadership and support staff, and I am certainly proud to be part of such an amazing group of people!
