Falcon Heights, MN Fire Damage Cleanup and Restoration
The pace with which fire restorers can reach damaged Falcon Heights properties can make a considerable difference in the overall restoration and recovery efforts required. Our professionals stay diligently prepared for emergencies that require fast action, namely fire loss incidents, with stocked trailers and production vehicles ready to mobilize when our staffed emergency line gets contacted. We also have growing relationships with local insurance companies to provide the appropriate photographic evidence and estimations necessary to expedite fire damage claims, so restoration begins as soon as possible.
Fire Mitigation Actions Taken First in Falcon Heights Homes
As you might expect, specific actions can be taken immediately to reduce the overall impact that fire loss has on a property. These mitigative efforts reduce effects like odors and soot particles. Emergency services seek to address much of the pressing concerns when a property becomes cleared to reenter after a fire gets extinguished, such as structural concerns or fire debris present in the house. Cleaning up after these threatening conditions can reduce the concentrations of some of the most hazardous loss effects in the structure.
Soot Removal for Falcon Heights Properties
Removing smoke residues from surfaces often involves multiple products and approaches. With numerous potential underlying materials and contents, the path taken for each of these compromised surfaces is critical. Usually, the process involves a combination of several tools and cleansers, including:
- Media Blasting
- Agitative Cleaning
- Controlled Demolition

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 carefully inspect and test adjoining rooms of your property to determine the extent of the fire, smoke, and soot damage. This step is crucial to developing a plan of action.
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)
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
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
We clean and sanitize the restorable items and structures damaged by the fire. Our professionals use a variety of cleaning techniques to restore your belongings to pre-fire condition. We’re also trained to remove odors using industrial air scrubbers and fogging equipment.
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.
