Fire and water restoration jobs involve three main elements: cleaning, repairing, and restoring your home. Cleaning your home involves more than just scrubbing walls and vacuuming carpets, however.

Cleaning fire and water damage requires special equipment to remove the standing water, soot, and ash from your home and thoroughly dry your home to prevent mold and mildew growth. Repairing your home after a fire or flood involves removing anything that has sustained significant fire or water damage and replacing it with new materials. This can be the most time-consuming part of the project, depending on the extent of the damage to your home. Restoration includes putting the final touches on everything in your home so it looks as it did before the fire or flood. Depending on how bad the damage is, these three elements can take anywhere from a few weeks to several months.
