Fire Damage Restoration

Whether it’s small or a full-fledged inferno, there are few things more frightening than a fire. Fires don’t just threaten the safety and security of your home and possessions, they also pose a danger to you and your family.

There are more than 350,000 home fires every year and fire damage is one of the most common types of home insurance claims in the U.S.

Yet simply being reimbursed by your insurance company for these cleanup efforts isn’t enough. If you’re dealing with the aftermath of a recent fire, you need to make sure that you find a quality damage restoration company who will get the job done the right way.

Axel Works provides full fire damage restoration for Orlando, Apopka, the Space Coast, and throughout Central Florida and we can have a trained technician at your home in less than two hours.

Types of Fires

Most fires look the same, but they are classified into different types.

Fires are given a letter designation according to the material or fuel that is being burned.

  • A – wood, paper, cloth, and other materials that leave an ash
  • B – flammable liquids, such as gasoline, oil, and paint
  • C – electrical fires
  • D – combustible metals, such as magnesium and aluminum
  • K – cooking oils, animal fat, or grease

Each type of fire must be extinguished in a different way. They also require different cleanup methods by your fire damage restoration company. The wrong cleaning method or product can react in a way that causes further, irreversible damage.

The restoration experts at Axel Works are not only highly trained on the latest techniques, we invest a significant amount of time and resources into acquiring new skills and equipment so we stay on the cutting edge of restoration services in Orlando.

More Than Fire and Smoke

In the vast majority of cases, firefighters are able to stop the fire in time to save your home or business. But even then, the damage caused by the fire often threatens the structural integrity of your property.

Quick, thorough, expert damage restoration must follow in order to prevent further issues.

Another thing you must consider is probably the last thing you would think of when it comes to fire damage restoration: water damage. Fire hoses pump out roughly 150 gallons of water a minute and fire extinguisher residue can be extremely difficult to remove without proper training.

So much water can further damage your already compromised home and leave you vulnerable to mold growth.

At Axel Works, our fire damage restoration services include a heavy focus on water damage restoration and mold removal so you can rest assured that your home is safe.

Stop Fire Damage In Its Tracks

Once a fire has taken hold, it can be nearly impossible to fully contain. Occasionally, it may even breach your walls or roof, leaving the inside of your home exposed to the elements.

In situations like this, swift action is necessary to prevent further damage before repairs can be made.

Our board up and tarping services create a temporary yet sturdy barrier between you and the rain, wind, sun, and pests that threaten your home. This is one of many ways that Axel Works thinks beyond typical fire damage restoration for Orlando area homeowners.

Cleanup

Fire restoration services start with a full assessment of your home’s condition. We also work with your insurance company, if needed.

In addition to removing and replacing any damaged material, we will also focus on thoroughly cleaning and sanitizing items that were tarnished by smoke and soot. Smoke easily permeates soft materials, such as upholstery, carpet, drywall, and clothing. The smell may linger in your home for months if not properly treated.

If addressed immediately, many items in your home can be restored to their original condition. With the restoration pros from Axel Works, you can return to your normal lifestyle as soon as possible.
