Fire can be the most devastating thing to happen to you and your home and unfortunately this is not uncommon and its effects can be very traumatic. We understand the destruction that fires can cause to your home and we work with you at every stage of your claim.
Our main aim is to ease the stress and pressures you may be under, by surveying and negotiating your property claim with your insurer for you to ensure a fair settlement. We then use our vetted tradespeople to reinstate your home as swiftly as possible.
However, heat is not the only effect of fire as there are two other side effects that we also take into consideration, which are smoke and soot damage.
A combination of heat and pressure forces smoke and an acrid smell to penetrate through cracks in walls and floorboards. Once the flames have been extinguished the building begins to cool and the smoke gets trapped. Smoke can linger for years, so fire damaged properties need to be professionally detoxified in order to prevent serious conditions such as acidic attacks or residual odour problems. Carbon deposits must be completely eradicated before redecoration can take place.
Never underestimate the corrosive power of soot. Left to its own devices, it will attack and destroy all wiring and electronic components. Cleaning has to be thoroughly carried out to complete effective restoration of your property.
