Fire Damage

Fire Damage Restoration in Greater Fairfield County

When it comes to fire damage, one thing is absolutely certain: no two scenarios are alike.

Every fire is unique in its cause, composition, size, and waste; some fires can involve more than 100 complex chemical reactions! How these factors combine together will affect how the fire damage restoration is conducted.

At ServiceMaster of Greater Bridgeport, we offer 24-Hour Emergency Service for homeowners and property managers interested in restoring their fire-damaged building.

Each estimate includes a written quote, a professional inspection, and on-site consultation where we address any questions you may have.

Four Elements of Fire Damage:

Fire damage restoration is a multiphase process, and it's vitally important that the process begins within hours of the damage.

Mold damage can begin in as little as 24 hours after saturation of building materials. This damage can affect all organic surfaces, and can be much more expensive than the fire damage itself. Waiting even a single day to begin can greatly compound the damage, cost, and restoration time needed.

We serve Danbury, Norwalk, Stratford and many nearby areas, including Stamford, Greenwich, Shelton, Trumbull, Westport, Darien, West Haven, Weston, Redding, Derby, Easton, Sherman and other parts of Connecticut.

Do's and Don'ts After Fire & Smoke Damage

What to DO:

  • If the temperature is above 60 degrees, open windows and doors to ventilate the house.
  • Change the air filter on your furnace.
  • Clean Formica, chrome, porcelain and aluminum fixtures to prevent them from tarnishing.
  • Get rid of open food packages.
  • Turn off the electricity and clean out your refrigerator, leaving doors open to ventilate.
  • Have clothing cleaned by a professional restoration dry cleaner.
  • Corrosive byproducts from fire and smoke can cause irreversible etching in as few as 72 hours. Call ServiceMaster of Greater Bridgeport immediately to limit this.
  • Tape damp cheesecloth over important documents to capture loose soot in the air.

What NOT to do:

  • Do not touch anything with your hands. Oil from your hands can cause further damage. Use gloves to clean refrigerator and fixtures.
  • Do not wash the walls. This will compound soot residue.
  • Do not clean carpets or upholstery.
  • Do not use appliances until having them checked.
  • Do not use ceiling fixtures if the ceiling is wet.

Fire Damage

The direct damage from any fire is caused by the fire itself, as well as the immediate heat damage from the fire.

Fire will char anything it touches. Noncombustible objects may melt, and paint and wallpaper will peel. Some fires leave corrosive substances behind when they're extinguished that can damage wood, plastic, metal, and other substances.

Smoke Damage

While fire may damage only a small area, smoke will permeate far and wide in a structure.

High temperatures during a fire can open pores that will bring the smoke deep inside your building materials, property, and inside the HVAC system. This smoke can be corrosive and potentially toxic, and it will lead to long-term smoke odors in the area.

Water Damage

Water damage and fire damage go hand in hand, as fire hoses flood the area at a rate of 95 gallons per minute.

Water damage will spread far beyond the fire-affected area, working downhill to flood lower floors and enter cavities and voids within the building. This will damage electrical components, insulation, drywall, personal possessions, and other property.

Mold & Rot Damage

Within 24-48 hours of the water saturation that goes along with extinguishing a fire, mold will begin to grow.

Mold will create an extremely unhealthy environment within the home while it destroys personal property and may even create a potential structural issue. By drying the area thoroughly and immediately, this damage can be avoided.
