Fire Damage Cleanup and Restoration

24/7 Emergency Services

The aftermath of a fire is sometimes the most difficult part to deal with. Smoke and fire damaged surfaces, objects and possessions can often be salvaged and restored but care is needed. We specialise in professionally assessing fire damage and will give you an honest and accurate assessment of what needs to be done.

We’ll clean what can be cleaned and make good whatever can be salvaged and replace the rest. We also have access to a team of structural surveyors if an assessment is needed of the building fabric or structure. We can also advise and help with water damage and restoration whether resulting from emergency services attendance or not.
Professional fire damage cleanup and restoration is available nationwide at affordable prices. Please call us on 0333 7720638 and we’ll be happy to help.

Cleaning and Restoration of Premises and Contents Due To Fire Damage

Our entire business is based around our proven ability of being able to clean and restore buildings and contents so we are very well placed and able to deal with fire damage quickly and effectively. Our fully trained and professional team have many years of experience in cleaning and restoration following fire damage. We are available in the same way that emergency services are available, 24/7, 365 days a year. Our team are fully trained and equipped with the necessary equipment, cleaning materials, PPE and RPE to respond anywhere in the UK at a moment’s notice.

As an emergency fire damage cleaning specialist, our services are set up to respond rapidly to the effects of a fire, 24 hours a day. Our teams have all the correct protective clothing, equipment and cleaning materials to start work straight away.

Why Choose Us?

Firstly, we are specialists. Fire damage and restoration is not something that should be carried out by a general cleaning company.

We have developed comprehensive and robust policies and procedures, health and safety practices including risk assessments as well as comprehensive method statements. These systems and procedures are absolutely essential in any work environment but are of particular importance when dealing with potentially dangerous, fire damaged environments.

We work closely with our clients, their representatives, agents and insurers to accurately assess the type and severity of fire damage in order to be able to take the most effective action.

We will help identify items that can be saved and those so badly damaged that they must be disposed of. Our emergency waste teams will take damaged items to an authorised site for safe disposal.

How Do We Work?

Before we carry out any work
  • We carry out a comprehensive risk assessment to effectively evaluate risks to people, property and the environment.
  • After carrying out a risk assessment, we create a method statement. A method statement details exactly how we are going to carry out a task and details the steps that need to be taken to safely carry out the work. This could involve detailing the type of equipment we might be using, the PPE (personal protective equipment) that might be needed and the processes involved in actually carrying out the work.
  • COSHH Risk Assessment. COSHH is short for control of substances hazardous to health. The COSHH risk assessment that we carry out is done to identify the risks involved with the materials that we are dealing with and also to understand the risks involved with using the chemicals that we decide to use.
  • Creation of a Waste Transfer Note. A waste transfer note (WTN) is a document that details the transfer of waste from one person to another. We make certain that every load of waste you that we receive on your behalf or that we pass to others is covered by a WTN. WTNs make certain that there is a clear audit trail from when the waste is produced until it is disposed of.
  • PPE and RPE Training or Toolbox Talks. We make certain that all of our team know what and how to use their PPE (personal protective/protection equipment). This is done through Toolbox talks. Put simply, someone experienced and also qualified if necessary in the effective use of PPE demonstrates and explains exactly how to put on, wear and work in items of PPE. RPE (Respiratory Protection Equipment) such as breathing apparatus often needs specialist training or instruction in safe and effective useage and we also make certain that our team are fully equipped, trained and competent in the use of RPE at all times.

How we clean up and remedy Fire Damage?

We use specialist cleaning techniques and materials to thoroughly clean surfaces affected by smoke and soot damage.

Smoke and soot damage cleaning and restoration

Soot particles are toxic to humans and when something burns, millions of microscopic soot particles are released into the immediate atmosphere. This makes smoky and sooty areas hazardous long after the fire that caused them has been put out. Depending on the materials involved in the fire, soot residue and particles can be toxic in and of themselves. Coupled with the sooty, greasy and really stubborn mess that is left after a fire, soot damage is incredibly difficult to clean. When mixed with water, soot also creates an acidic solution which often results in corrosive damage to surfaces prone to acidic damage.

SAdd these factors up then you have a good idea as to why cleaning up after smoke or soot damage needs to be done as soon as it is safe to enter the building. Speed really is of the essence and we strongly suggest that you contact our specialist team on 0333 7720638 and we’ll be happy to help.

SOur dedicated teams are fully trained and equipped in the deep cleaning techniques necessary to deal with fire damage professionally. Our view is that this cannot be done effectively utilising conventional or standard cleaning techniques.

Smoke, Soot and Fire Smell (Odour) Remediation

We all know that fire leaves a smell or odour. We probably remember with some fondness the smell of the bonfire or barbeque and some of a certain age will remember the smell left on clothes after working in an area where people have been smoking.

The smell that lingers after a fire is horrible, toxic and stale. It needs to be dealt with through thorough deep cleaning as the building becomes unsafe or unsuitable for people to live or work in otherwise. Once surfaces have been thoroughly cleaned then we are able to carry out effective and thorough thermal fogging. The process of thermal fogging involves filling the spaces affected with a safe and non-toxic vapour that neutralises smalls and gives effective long term protection from the potential return of the odour.

Water Damage Removal and Restoration Following a Fire

When fire or emergency services attend a fire, their primary concern is of course to put the fire out. Dependent on the type and location of the fire, considerable quantities of water can be needed to put out or dampen down the fire. We specialise in clearing up the damage caused by water, sprinkler systems r indeed fire extinguishers.

Water residue left in a building is almost always chemically contaminated and may also be contaminated by sewage depending of course on the nature and severity of the water damage. We can either deal with this issue ourselves or we have access to specialist service providers to remove the water present following a fire or flood.

Risks and Dangers Associated with Dire and Smoke Damage

When dealing with a fire damaged site then there are a wide range of risks and dangers that can be present. Examples include structural integrity of the whole or part of the building, substantial danger of breathing difficulties due to smoke or dust particles in the atmosphere.

In addition, water damage presents a clear risk from slipping as does the possibility of trip hazards caused by falling ceilings, walls or other objects combined with a loss of visibility through power outages or smoke damage or obfuscation.
