Fire Damage FAQ
Dealing with fire damage is not an easy task. Before trying to do it yourself, consult a specialist first. Most fire damage restoration tasks are not DIY projects. You would need someone with a great deal of experience to determine the magnitude of the problem. You would also need guidance to identify the right solutions.
It depends on the extent of the damage. If several parts of the property are damaged, it can put your life at risk. It is not advisable to stay inside a heavily compromised apartment or office and doing so can have adverse health effects. You should leave if the smoke residue is causing damage to your health. The best option is always to consult a professional to help you decide.
It is tough to give a fixed time for the entire process. It depends on the degree of damage. However, we always make the best efforts to complete restoration in the earliest possible time while considering your safety.

- Natural substances: These include paper, wood, and many other organic materials. The residue from these substances is usually black or grey.
- Protein-based substances: These substances usually leave a greasy film on surfaces. On exposure to further heat, this film can harden and attach to its surface. Usually it is difficult to remove.
- Oil: Oil residues travel upwards and make stains on the ceiling. Without the aid of a professional, it is easy to miss these stains.
