If there has been any damage to windows, doors, walls or the roof, etc., our emergency response team will arrive quickly to board up and tarp any openings to the home to ensure your property’s safety while the restoration process occurs. A well done, proper board up will help keep your home safe from any outside elements, vandals or varmints. When the boards and tarps are installed temporarily, it will buy you enough time to prevent future damage from occurring, until the adjuster arrives.
Massive amounts of water is used to extinguish even the smallest fire. Like fire, water can also cause significant damage to the building materials, furniture, electronics, appliances, fixtures, and other objects. If left alone and untreated, water-damaged objects are susceptible to secondary adverse effects, such as the growth of mold, fungus, mildew and foul odors, all of which can cause lingering health effects. When you call Baker Restoration and Construction, our dispatchers will send a team of qualified technicians to your home immediately. Upon arrival, our technicians will take a survey of the situation and start the water extraction process to minimize secondary damage. Our trucks are fully equipped with truck-mounted extraction units as well as floor wand extraction systems to remove up to 99% of moisture in the affected areas.
Our emergency response technicians will mitigate the water damage first before addressing the rest of the fire damage. In doing so, it will limit the extent of the water damage, so it won’t increase the amount of the overall damage done by the fire. Next, we will set air movers and dehumidifiers in the affected space to aid in the drying process, along with HEPA filtered negative air machines to capture any hazardous smoke particulates present.
Smoke can emit a dangerous mix of carbon dioxide and chemicals, and can easily seep into the walls, drywall and fibrous contents in the home. These include carpeting, upholstery and clothing.
