After a fire causes damage to your home or commercial property, it can be difficult to know where to turn. STOP Restoration is here 24/7 to provide expert fire damage restoration services! Fires are devastating. You need someone who will walk you through the situation, clean up the problem, and put things back together again – that’s where we come in. Our goal is to be a resource for people within the Triad community. Once a household or business has experienced a fire loss, our objective is to walk them through the aftermath step-by-step in order to help them recover.
If the firemen have to break out windows to access the fire, or if there is a hole in the roof our team can come out and immediately secure your home. Most likely power within the structure is turned off, so we will need to work to have temporary power connected in order to place the proper equipment. Fire claims can take a little while to process but it’s important to begin drying the structure as quickly as possible to prevent structural problems or mold from all the excess moisture. Soot from fires is also generally acidic and can damage metal fixtures and in some cases stone countertops.
It’s important you document everything that’s being done so it’s best to have a professional come in, take photos, perform the immediate cleaning that is needed, and set up a drying environment. In most cases with fire damage, it’s best to empty out the spaces and move any salvageable contents to our secure facility where we can work to restore them and keep them out of the way of the demolition and cleaning that needs to be done on the structure. With smaller fires, we can set up a secure storage unit onsite to store and clean your belongings.
Did you know that if your laptops, TVs, etc. are covered in soot, don’t turn them on to see if they still work! Once they are powered up the soot particles will be attracted to the electrical components and can severely damage the unit. Instead, have a professional electronics restorer come and pick up the items to attempt restoration. They can usually salvage data from computers even if the machine can’t be saved. STOP will coordinate the pick-up and works with the best electronic restorers in the region.
