Edgemoor, DE Fire Damage Cleanup and Restoration

The Importance of Responding Quickly to Fire Emergencies in Edgemoor Homes

Because of how quickly fires can get out of control, Edgemoor homes and businesses' damaged areas can be extensive. We have become a reputable choice for fire restoration companies in New Castle County, helping us to provide not only immediate fire mitigation responses for the more than 5,000 residents of our town, but also surrounding areas in the Greater Wilmington area. We have readied emergency response vehicles to manage these crises whenever they occur.

When Can Fire Mitigation Begin for Edgemoor Homes?

Once first responders have cleared Edgemoor homes and businesses and returned them to their owners, it is vital to get fire mitigation and cleaning started as soon as possible. This process most often begins with environmental safety measures, such as removing soot particles and harmful particulates circulating in the property's open areas. This process can be especially vital for venues like the Kingswood Community Center and the Wilmington Drama League theater building, as these often feature scheduled events.

Fire Damage Repairs After Cleanup

Repairing the damage to a property after a fire requires careful evaluations of where damage exists. Failure to repair all damaged areas can encourage the return of effects like smoke and burning odors with changing atmospheric and temperature conditions. With public structures like the North Wilmington Library or the Edgemoor Garden structures, this could affect hundreds of people until the situation ultimately gets resolved through repair and reconstruction.

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

We are available 24 hours, 7 days a week. When you call, one of our representatives will ask a series of questions about the fire damage to your home or business. This information helps us respond immediately with all the needed equipment and resources.

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)

In many fire damage cases, it’s necessary to board up missing windows and walls and to place tarps on a damaged roof. This helps to maintain security and to protect against further damage. 

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

If needed, we can begin the water removal process with powerful pumps and extraction units. This removes most of the water. We complete the water removal and drying process with industrial-strength dehumidifiers and air movers. 

Step 5: Removal of Smoke and Soot from All Surfaces

Your property’s ceiling, walls, floors, and other surfaces will likely have smoke and soot residue. We’ll use specialized cleaning products, equipment, and techniques to properly clean your home or business. 

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.
