Putting out the fire is just the beginning
A fire can be one of the most traumatic and devastating events for a property owner. Once the fire has been put out by emergency services and the smoke clears, the emergency fire response team from Restoration & Recovery Contractors of America is here to help.
The damage caused by fires does not stop after the flames have died out. To recover as much of your property as possible, an effective emergency response during the first 24-48 hours after a fire is imperative.
Smoke and soot, and the odors from both, will continue to cause damage to your property, possessions, and health after a fire has been put out. They must be neutralized and removed as soon as possible.

Frequently Asked Questions
Typically, it’s best to wait for our restoration technicians to arrive. They have the proper equipment, products, and resources to safely restore your building materials and items. One thing you can do to aid the restoration process is set items aside that must be restored first, such as electronics. This allows us to be more efficient during the recovery process.
This will depend on the extent of the damage. Destruction across multiple floors will take days or weeks to restore compared to one roof of a home. Also keep in mind that commercial buildings like offices and warehouses will take longer than homes due to their size, and they also have to pass an inspection code with the city.
This will also depend on the extent of the damage. If the structure is not stable or you are left without running water or electricity, you should relocate temporarily. But for smaller fires that affected a single area of the home, small factors like noise disruption and smoke smell will be present. It’s ultimately your decision whether or not you choose to stay.
In most cases, the contents will be restored on-site, but sometimes the property has suffered extensive damage which makes this impossible. If the structure is not stable or does not allow for ideal conditions, we will have your items inventoried, packed, and delivered to our climate-controlled facility for proper restoration.
Any items with personal or high monetary value should be kept with you at all times, like:
- Family valuables
- Personal documents
- Checkbooks, cash, and credit cards
No. We ask that you please leave the HVAC unit off until it has been inspected by one of our technicians. Without even knowing, fire damage may have affected the unit and turning it on can lead to spreading soot particles throughout the property. Please wait until we have inspected and approved the unit for use.
