- Assessment: Assuming you have already called for emergency service, the first step in the process is the assessment. Upon arrival, the team will assess and inspect the entire premises.
- Mitigation: Next, the team will begin mitigating damage. With a house fire, all systems are compromised. As such, the team will need to turn off the water to the house, shut off the electricity system, and ensure there are no gas leaks. Then, they will take steps to remove smoldering ashes from the affected areas.
- Cleanup: Next comes the cleanup portion of the process. The team, using advanced equipment and techniques, will clean smoke, dust, and soot from all surfaces in the area.
- Restoration: Lastly, the team will repair, replace, and restore any damaged components around the house. They will work quickly and efficiently to restore furniture, cabinets, carpet, and wallpaper, and will even paint where necessary.
