In the event that your property suffers fire damage, a great restoration service is who you should call after firefighters leave. There’s a saying in the restoration business, ‘the first 48 hours after an accident are golden.’

To translate, this more or less means that it is during those hours that we, restoration experts make the most progress. Water, the soot, and smoke are still relatively fresh and are easier to clean out. Our experts at Plumbers Toronto understand this, and that is why they are available 24/7 365 days of the year. After you’ve placed your call, we set out immediately, and within the hour, we’ll arrive at your property.

Preliminary inspection

When we arrive on-site, the first thing we do is perform a preliminary inspection of your property. We don’t go into great detail; we just try to get a scope of the damages and form the base of our restoration plans.

Moving your valuables

After the preliminary inspection, we need to move all your valuables out of the way so that we can take a closer look at the property to better assess the level of damage and gather information. This information will come in handy, especially when you are filing an insurance claim.

Depending on the level of fire damage and the kinds of items you keep on your property, their structural integrity and value will be impacted. Some of them are usually too damaged to keep.

We typically recommend that property owners’ sort what they want us to keep and restore

Water restoration is the first major part of the fire restoration process. It entails removing all moisture from the property with a dehumidifier and pump. The process might take anywhere from a few hours to a few days. Removing all moisture from the walls and floors will maintain the structure of the property and prevent the growth of mold.

Fire and smoke restoration

Dealing with soot, toxic smoke, and smoke odor is delicate and can be sometimes dangerous even though the fire that caused the damage has long been put out. Our team adheres to tested rules and procedures of engagement that ensure their safety and yours.
