Fire Damage Restoration

If you believe that a fire stops doing damage when the flames go out, you’re not alone – but that’s not the case at all. The materials in your Texas home or business will continue to stain and corrode long after the fire has subsided. In order to keep damage to a minimum, immediate attention is required. Count on Rainbow International of Sugar Land & Katy for expert 24-hour fire and smoke damage restoration and mitigation services throughout Sugar Land, Katy, Richmond, and the surrounding area.

What is Fire Mitigation?

FEMA defines mitigation to be preventing further destruction of property after a disaster such as a fire strikes. At Rainbow, mitigation also means being proactive and taking precautions to minimize risk to our clients. You, too, can help to mitigate damage by purchasing proper fire insurance and investing in fire-preventing community services here in the local community.

What is Fire Damage Restoration?

Sometimes, a low, smoldering flame causes more damage than the fire itself. So as soon as a property is safe, our fire specialists begin to reduce the damage caused by smoke corroding and staining surfaces. Our experts know just how to deal with the complications associated with putting out fires – and with the damage they leave behind.

How You Can Prevent Further Damage

  • Call Rainbow International of Sugar Land & Katy before attempting to repair damages yourself; again, we’re available 24/7.
  • Open your windows to get the air circulating and reduce lingering smoke.
  • Make sure that kids, pets, and any people are out of the building. Smoke is harmful to our lungs, and it’s important to get away from the carcinogenic gases that may escape during restoration. Find a temporary place to stay until the process is complete.
  • If the power is out, immediately empty your refrigerator and freezer. After this is emptied, leave the door open to let the air circulate and prevent odor buildup.
  • Take inventory of your house. List all of the items in your home that need to be replaced, and take photographs of the damage. This makes things easier for insurance companies and the fire investigation authorities. It is always safest to have at least five copies on hand.

What You Should Leave to Rainbow's Experts

Because of toxic gases and smoldering ash, there are some unsafe tasks that are best left to the fire restoration professionals.

  • Refrain from washing down any walls, wood trim, furniture, or absorbent surfaces.
  • Do not move or touch upholstered furniture.
  • Do not eat anything that has been exposed to the fire.
  • Do not use electrical systems such as the furnace or air conditioner.
  • Keep your distance from appliances or electrical devices until our team gives you the okay.
