When assessing the damage caused by a fire we consider a few characteristics.
- Quantity of flames
- Distribution of flames
- Ventilation of the building
- Size and surface area covered
- Thermal characteristics
Another major influencer is of course combustible materials, which can cause a smaller fire to blaze through a home in minutes.
After the initial assessment, we devise a plan of action dealing with fire, smoke and soot damage. Water damage may also be present if hoses were used to extinguish the fire. This will be dealt with first via humidifiers and air movers so mold does not grow.
