Since each smoke and fire damage situation is a little different, each one requires a unique solution tailored for the specific conditions. With this specific Fire loss we had to Demolish the entire first floor of this residence. When deciding how far to go with demolition we take multiple things into consideration. First and foremost, The health and safety of the residents is our priority. Our first step is inspection holes. We go through all affected areas and cut inspection holes large enough to pull samples of insulation and inspect all studs, sheathing and any internal electrical and plumbing components. Once we have validated the demolition of a room or specific structure we start looking at treatment. Treatment can include Deodorizing, O-Zone,Smoke sealing and more. Specific to this project we O-Zoned the entire house and smoke sealed all demolished structure. Any structure that did not need demolition was cleaned, When cleaning smoke affected structure typically the best method is a dry chemical sponge. Although some cases require alternate advanced cleaning methods.
