Fire damage occurs with a wide range of severity, from minor smoke damage to the destruction of a building and its contents. Westfair Restoration Services, Inc, is committed to bringing your home or business back to pre-loss condition.
Westfair Fire and Smoke Damage Restoration Process
Westfair has certified technicians that specialize in fire damage restorations. Our process is dependent on the extent
of the damage the fire has caused by the time of contact.
Light Damage: Light fire residue that can be
remedied by cleaning walls, ceilings, floors, and contents. Residue may be confined to specific areas.
Moderate Damage: More intense with persistent fire residue which may be remedied by restorative cleaning procedures, Painting, and/or floor refinishing. Localized heat damage may require replacement of any burned contents or walls. Fire odor may be minor or severe. Fires involving carbonized meat or poultry generate little
to no visible smoke or residue, but leave a persistent obnoxious odor. Materials such as plastics, may generate extensive residue from a small quantity of fuel. Personal property requires cleaning where residue is present, and can largely be handled on site.
Severe Damage: Fire damage has occurred to structural materials such as framing, mill work and finishes near fire source, with heavy deposits of carbon and smoke residues over a wide area; odors may be extremely obnoxious, particularly from confined, oxygen-starved fires. Enclosed wall and ceiling cavities may be infiltrated by smoke. Some contents may not be salvageable by on-site methods.
Very Severe Damage: Fire damage to major building elements, such as floor or roof framing, heating, ventilation, and/or utilities. Such damage often requires temporary repairs such as board-up, winterization, temporary electrical repairs, or removal of salvageable contents. Very severe fires often involve extensive water damage from fire suppression efforts or damaged water lines. At every level of severity, considerations of health, as well as value, require that all restoration work be complete and properly executed as soon as possible.
