Fire Damage Cleanup Process

Fire Damage Cleanup Process

A Fire Damage Specialist will thoroughly inspect your property and document all items that have experienced Fire Damage. Any items that are salvageable from the Fire will be cleaned accordingly and packed out by our trained Fire Damage Techs. Once all items are cleaned and packed, they will then be transported to our climate-controlled facility for storage.

First Response also has the capability of restoring fire-damaged furniture and other contents. Once we have inventoried, stored, refinished, or refurbished your salvageable contents, we begin cleaning your home or business. Once all the walls, ceilings, and contents are cleaned & deodorized, we start the restoration process. We understand that each fire is different and that is why our Fire Damage Specialists are IICRC-certified to handle every situation.

  • Step 4 - First Response will begin any emergency water removal and setting up temporary power as needed.
  • Step 5 - You and a specialist from the First Response contents division will meet onsite to begin inventorying all your salvageable and non-salvageable contents from the home. If there are any textiles that are salvageable a member from our team will pick those up to be cleaned and deodorized.

Frequently Asked Question & Answer

After the first responders have extinguished the fire, your first priority is to ensure that all of your family members and pets are safe. After everyone has been accounted for, call us immediately to assess your property and begin a restoration plan.
We recommend that you hire a professional team to clean up fire and smoke residue rather than cleaning it yourself. Smoke is dangerous to inhale, and our team has the proper equipment and expertise to adequately handle the damage.
After a fire, the main concerns are the structural integrity of the home and the smoke residue. When a fire burns, it melts building materials and can create toxic fumes that linger within the property.
