Fire Damage Restoration for Commercial and Domestic Properties

Fire damage can devastate any building, commercial or domestic. But regardless of the type of building affected, the aftermath is just as stressful and difficult to deal with.

Getting in touch with Rainbow International’s team of fire restoration specialists to handle the situation will allow you to relax and focus on getting back to normal.

Fire is a distressing thing to experience, and can severely damage your health – let our fire damage restoration service work on your building’s health so you can focus on your own.

Rainbow's Fire Damage Restoration Service

A fire leaves behind ash, smoke and structural damage that requires a swift and professional approach to avoid contaminates furthering the damage beyond surface level.

Fire damage restoration services must focus on clearing away hazards, decontaminating the overall site and removing all evidence that a fire had ever happened in the first place. Without these steps, the building can remain hazardous to human health, and continue to deterioate due to the acidic nature of soot and ash.

Rainbow International has fire damage restoration service that covers all bases and ensures that every nook and cranny has been thoroughly cleaned and restored to its former state. This service includes strict steps that must be adhered to, including:

Fire restoration – clean up after fire damage

Once a fire has happened in a building, the cleanup process must begin as soon as the fire is out. Rainbow International’s fire damage cleaning service involves removing any unsalvagable items that must be thrown away, and taking things off the site that can be saved later on.

At this point, hazardous areas will be highlighted and a plan to deal with them will be made to avoid any secondary damage occuring within the affected areas. Water damage will also have to be dealt with, as some water will be remaining as a result of the emergency services putting the fire out.

Buildings & contents restoration

It’s to be expected that the buildings and the contents within will have been severely damaged by the fire, which is why Rainbow International’s expert teams prioritise building and contents restoration.

By identifying areas that can be salvaged and using specialist tools and equipment to restore them back to their original state, we can work to get the most out of a badly damaged building.

Removal of soot and smoke

Once the building has been cleared and the contents have been removed and sorted, the soot and smoke must be dealt with. Smoke odour can cling to surfaces if not effectively cleaned away, and soot particles can be very dangerous to your health due to the toxins within it.

Rainbow International has the expert cleaning equipment needed for the job to be done properly, along with the knowledge for the highest standard fire damage cleaning results.

Sealing of painted surfaces

An important step that can be missed out if the professionals aren’t handling the restoration service, is sealing painted surfaces.

Rainbow International uses specially formulated sealers that cover smoke damage and eradicate any odours. It’s not just cosmetic though, as this step ensures that the acidic smoke won’t break down the paint over time, and will protect your home from any long lasting damage.

Soot fix applications

Soot is made up of acidic particles that can impact appliances if it’s not properly cleaned away, making them dangerous to use and a future problem.

Rainbow International’s fire damage restoration service includes reviewing and restoring appliances that have come in contact with soot. This step is vital as any damaged appliances that aren’t reviewed can cause secondary damage, and potentially another fire.

Controlled waste disposal

The waste generated by a fire can be hazardous to health if a professional is not monitoring the situation. The by-products of burnt materials are often toxic and can be difficult to handle, so having Rainbow International’s experts remove the waste in a controlled manner is vital.

We will always ensure that there is a controlled waste disposal protocol in place before we begin working on any building that has been damaged by fire.

Smoke odour removal

The smell of smoke is not one that is often desired, and is usually a painful reminder of the fire that caused it in the first place.

At Rainbow International, we use expert techniques and tools to rid the building of any smoke odour and leave you a clean and fresh home or commercial property to return to.

Cleaning of all items affected by smoke – carpets, rugs, furniture, walls, floors and general contents

It’s not just the odour you must remain aware of, smoke can be a dirty and acidic substance that will damage any item it gets near.

As a result, Rainbow International has developed processes to ensure that all contents are thoroughly cleaned and removed of any smoke to avoid future damage.

Restoration & PAT testing of electrical items

Electrical items can suffer a lot from fire damage, but it’s usually below surface level and can be difficult to spot.

Using these items without them being thoroughly PAT tested and restored to a functioning level can be extremely dangerous and even cause another fire. As a part of Rainbow International’s fire damage restoration service, the team will remove electrical items, assess them, restore them and then complete a full PAT test so you can get back to using them without the worry of further damage.
