Community Restoration professionals carefully inspect and test the affected and adjacent rooms of your property to determine the extent of the fire, smoke, and soot damage.

If water was used to extinguish the fire, the removal process begins almost immediately and removes the majority of the water. Community Restoration technicians use dehumidifiers and air movers to remove the remaining water and to complete the drying process.
