Mount Vernon, WA Fire Damage Cleanup and Restoration

As Skagit County's seat, Mount Vernon is one of the most bustling communities of the region. It was deemed the best small city in America in the 1990s and has yet to lose that appeal. Much like any growing community, the potential for disasters grows as well. We have a full division of fire restoration technicians available to help mitigate and recover when these emergencies occur. Once first responders have cleared the property for entry, we can begin vital emergency services to protect our technicians and the house's occupants.

Essential Steps of Fire Mitigation for Mount Vernon

Knowing what professionals intend to do first with your damaged address after a fire can help you appreciate your need for professional restorers. Fires can make living conditions unbearable after extinguishment, requiring multiple mitigative actions to get taken to preserve and protect the property and its contents. The objective of mitigating is to lessen loss and expenses for the customer, and this can involve multiple approaches, such as:

  • Water extraction
  • Fire debris removal
  • Air quality control
  • Content relocation

Our Fire Restoration Process

Every fire damage event is a little different and requires a unique solution, but the general process stays the same. The steps listed below illustrate our process for the “typical” fire damage emergency.

Step 1: Emergency Contact

The fire restoration process begins when you call us. Our consultant will guide you through the crisis and may ask several questions to help us better understand the type of fire damage you experienced, determining the equipment and resources needed.

Step 2: Inspection and Fire Damage Assessment

We determine the scope of the fire and smoke damage by examining the affected areas and by testing the adjoining rooms for smoke and soot damage. An accurate assessment is crucial to the planning process. 

Step 3: Immediate Board-Up and Roof-Tarp Service (if needed)

Fire damage can often compromise windows, walls, and roofs. To maintain security and to protect against further damage, we can board up missing windows and walls and place tarps on damaged roofs. 

Step 4: Water Removal and Drying (if water damage is present)

If needed, we can begin the water removal process with powerful pumps and extraction units. This removes most of the water. We complete the water removal and drying process with industrial-strength dehumidifiers and air movers. 

Step 5: Removal of Smoke and Soot from All Surfaces

Your property’s ceiling, walls, floors, and other surfaces will likely have smoke and soot residue. We’ll use specialized cleaning products, equipment, and techniques to properly clean your home or business. 

Step 6: Cleaning and Sanitizing

We clean and sanitize the restorable items and structures damaged by the fire. Our professionals use a variety of cleaning techniques to restore your belongings to pre-fire condition. We’re also trained to remove odors using industrial air scrubbers and fogging equipment.

Step 7: Restoration

Restoration is the final step—getting your home or business to its pre-fire condition. Restoration may involve minor repairs, such as replacing drywall, painting, and installing new carpet; or it may entail major repairs such as the reconstruction of various areas or rooms in a home or business.
