Fire & Smoke Damage Restoration


Restoration and remediation work centres around returning the interior environments of homes and other properties to their previous condition following damage or contamination. This could be from a number of hazardous materials and substances, including flood and water, fire and smoke, death and trauma, biological contaminants such as mould, or chemical contamination such as illicit substances.
The situations remediators encounter every day have a significantly elevated level of hazards and contaminants compared to those encountered by regular cleaners. The skills, training, equipment and safety knowledge required to successfully undertake remediation projects is extensive, and extremely specific to individual situations. Each scenario requires the implementation of proper process and risk mitigation frameworks to protect staff, customers and the general public, as well as to ensure adequate levels of decontamination as outlined by the IICRC.
Yes, they are. The chemicals, products and especially the equipment required to undertake this work, along with the insurances, training, certification, risk mitigation processes and protective equipment, add up to a significant overall expense. For example, during a water damage and/or mould job, there may be $20,000 to $50,000 of equipment on site at any one time. In certain instances, your insurance may be able to cover some or all of the remediation costs.

The goal of a restoration company is to return the damaged property to its original condition as quickly and efficiently as possible while minimising inconvenience to the property owners. Each restoration project is different, with its own challenges and requirements. Below is a breakdown of the typical steps you can expect us to take in a remediation project.

Damage Assessment: Restoration companies initially perform a comprehensive inspection to understand the extent and nature of the damage. They identify the cause of the problem, the areas affected, and the steps needed for restoration.

Water Extraction and Drying (if necessary): If the damage involves water (such as in the case of floods or leaks), the company will use professional-grade equipment to extract the water and dry out the affected areas, including interiors, furnishings, and documents.

Dehumidification: After water extraction, the process of dehumidification is necessary to remove any excess moisture from the air and materials to prevent further damage and mould growth.

Cleaning and Sanitising: The restoration company will thoroughly clean and sanitise the property. This can involve removing soot or dust, deodorising the area, and using antimicrobial treatments to prevent mould and mildew.

Mould Remediation: If the property has been affected by mould, restoration companies have the equipment and expertise to safely remove mould and prevent it from recurring.

Restoration and Repair: This could range from minor repairs, like replacing drywall and painting, to major tasks like the reconstruction of entire rooms or areas. The goal is to restore the property to its pre-damage state.

Coordination with Insurance Companies: Many restoration companies will also help clients navigate the insurance claim process, providing documentation and photos to support claims.

Preventive Measures: Remediation companies can provide advice on how to prevent future damage, offering tips on maintenance, weatherproofing, and other preventative measures.

Wherever possible, we will restore or decontaminate items to their previous condition. However, this is not always feasible due to the type or extent of damage, and items that can’t be restored will need to be replaced. In the majority of cases, materials affected by sewage or visible mould growth cannot be deemed successfully decontaminated. There are provisions under most standards provided by the IICRC to address items of significant sentimental or financial value that in normal circumstances would be discarded.

The IICRC (Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification) is a not-for-profit organisation based in the USA that develops the standards that guide the work undertaken by technicians and organisations in the cleaning and restoration industry. The IICRC combines legal consultation and scientific research to produce comprehensive standards regarding processes and to establish best practice. While this industry is yet to be regulated in Australia, CIRTS upholds the IICRC’s guidelines and regulations to ensure the best possible results for our clients.
