Structural Stabilization, Repairs & Board Up

The foundation holding up the property structure could be weak and crumbling after having been damaged by the fire. This can leave you vulnerable to additional loss from injury, weather or theft. From shoring up your structure to a plywood board up of windows, or security fencing around the entire property, you can rest assured that Atlanta Fire and Restoration will keep your property safe and secure.
Insurance Claim Negotiation & Management
We understand how frustrating it can be to navigate the complexities of property restoration. Most property owners only have to experience this once in their lifetime. Unfortunately, this puts you at a disadvantage when dealing with the insurance company. As experts in fire damage restoration we know all the little things that can easily be missed or overlooked – and they can really add up! Fortunately Atlanta Fire and Restoration can help even the playing field. We manage your claim and negotiate for you. Our extensive experience working with insurance companies on behalf of property owners ensures that you get the most out of your insurance policy.
Fire & Smoke Damage Restoration
Fire and smoke damage can be very complex and may include more than what you can see and smell. The type of smoke will greatly impact the restoration process. For example, smoke flows through plumbing systems, using holes around pipes to go from floor to floor. Hot smoke migrates to cooler areas and upper levels of a structure. Even a small fire can cause serious damage to your property. If not properly restored, odors can linger for years as heat and moisture draw out odors. Our restoration professionals have detailed construction knowledge as well as expertise in smoke removal, odor eradication, soot and ash elimination, stain removal, toxicity removal and restoring balance to the environment. Atlanta Fire and Restoration stands behind their work by providing a lifetime warranty against smoke smell and odor recurrence and a five year warranty on workmanship.
Cleaning & Deodorizing
Cleaning up after fire damage is a long and tedious process. Ideally, fast and immediate action should be undertaken when cleaning after fire damage. Walls, ceilings, floors and even air ducts need to be cleaned and deodorized. Additionally, the damage fire can actually be worsened if the people handling the restoration don’t know what they are doing. If not deodorized properly, smoke molecules can remain in the pores of their materials and continue to release smoke odors even after the fire damage cleanup. These odors can easily spread onto clothes, furniture, carpets, and to other parts of the house, especially on a warm day when the high temperatures can reopen smoke-filled pores. Proper deodorizing can spell the difference between big savings and spending thousands of dollars on cleaning everything again.
Contents Cleaning, Moving & Storage
Most fires include damage to your contents as well as the structure. Even if the fire itself didn’t damage your contents, chances are that smoke and water did. Many items might not be salvageable if left in their scorched state for some time. First our specialized content restoration staff performs a detailed and exhaustive room-by-room inventory. Then we carefully pack everything up and transport it to our warehouse where it is inspected. Non-salvageable items are documented for insurance reimbursement; salvageable items are cleaned and restored. We securely store your contents in our warehouse until your structural restoration is complete. Then we carefully transport them back to you and unpack them.
Water Extraction & Drying
Our expertise would not be complete without a detailed knowledge of water extraction and drying. Moisture remaining in your property can lead to mold, mildew, and dry rot if it is not properly extracted and dried. Our restoration experts use the most effective water removal and drying methods.
