Gretna, LA Fire Damage Cleanup and Restoration

From the German American Cultural Center to the Perry Street Wharf, properties all over Gretna are susceptible to fire damage events. 

Can Removing Fire Debris Help Gretna Fire Damaged Homes?

Considering the impact that fire debris can have on the rest of the post-fire extinguishment effects targeting the house, this is a good place for emergency services to begin. Without removing these charred remnants, they can amplify smoke odors and increase the circulation and density of soot particles. We help with:

  • Fire and Smoke Damage
  • Fire Damaged Homes
  • Fire Damage Restoration
  • Smoke Remediation

Can Smoke Remediation Remove Harsh Odors from Gretna Homes? 

While many consider smoke remediation and cleaning to target the black soot damage visible on many surfaces and contents, this process is also designed to remove odors present in the house. Considering how quickly odors can spread throughout the property, proper deodorization and counteractant products and equipment must be deployed fast. Often, hydroxyl generators are the preferred neutralizer. 

How Do Surfaces Get Cleaned During Gretna House Fire Clean Up?

Surface cleaning and soot/smoke residue removals can be one of the most critical processes for fire restoration. The success of this venture determines the salvageability of affected building materials and contents. With buildings like the Jefferson Parish Library, careful cleaning is critical to protect irreplaceable contents and publications.

Our Fire Restoration Process

Every fire damage event is a little different and requires a unique solution, but the general process stays the same. The steps listed below illustrate our process for the “typical” fire damage emergency.

Step 1: Emergency Contact

The fire restoration process begins when you call us. Our consultant will guide you through the crisis and may ask several questions to help us better understand the type of fire damage you experienced, determining the equipment and resources needed.

Step 2: Inspection and Fire Damage Assessment

We determine the scope of the fire and smoke damage by examining the affected areas and by testing the adjoining rooms for smoke and soot damage. An accurate assessment is crucial to the planning process. 

Step 3: Immediate Board-Up and Roof-Tarp Service (if needed)

Fire damage can often compromise windows, walls, and roofs. To maintain security and to protect against further damage, we can board up missing windows and walls and place tarps on damaged roofs. 

Step 4: Water Removal and Drying (if water damage is present)

The water removal process begins almost immediately and removes the majority of the water. We then use dehumidifiers and air movers to remove the remaining water and complete the drying process. 

Step 5: Removal of Smoke and Soot from All Surfaces

We use specialized equipment and techniques to remove smoke and soot from ceilings, walls, and other surfaces. 

Step 6: Cleaning and Sanitizing

Any restorable items will be cleaned and sanitized. We’ll use a variety of specialized cleaning techniques to restore your belongings to pre-fire condition. Our professionals will also remove smoke and other odors using advanced air scrubbing equipment and fogging devices with deodorizers.

Step 7: Restoration

Restoration is the final step—getting your home or business to its pre-fire condition. Restoration may involve minor repairs, such as replacing drywall, painting, and installing new carpet; or it may entail major repairs such as the reconstruction of various areas or rooms in a home or business.
