Fire destroys everything in its range. After a blaze is doused, there is so much to do, and time is critical. Gutted property openings need to be covered to protect against the elements and unauthorized entry, and there’s extensive debris removal to be carried out and repairs to be taken care of. Fire invites two more damage factors viz. water damage caused by water jets and smoke that causes its own extensive destruction. Much of this can be prevented if the correct preventive actions are taken in the first few hours after the fire is doused. And you’re likely to need water extraction and related services to limit mould and other water damage. It’s more for just a few people to handle, and very few companies like EPSCO India have the necessary training to do things right.
Our Fire Damage Restoration Process
Even a relatively small fire can present a very difficult and complex situation. Often emotionally devastating for the business owner, it’s also technically challenging even for experienced fire and smoke damage restoration professionals. No two blazes are alike and different combinations of surfaces, materials, and types of smoke require different cleaning and restoration solutions.
EPSCO India takes these steps:
1. Assessment Recovery begins with our team of expert’s assessment and planning. They will create a recovery plan specific to your place of business and the fire damage inflicted. That plan will include details of all damage, materials and a detailed schedule of remediation steps.
2. Securing the business property is the first priority. It is for the safety for our workers and the property’s contents. Accomplishing that may involve structural reinforcements, roof tarp covers, and board ups for destroyed windows, door, and walls.
3. Initial cleaning is performed once the business property is safe and secure. Our team begins debris removal along with initial cleaning and repairs.
Smoke and Odour Removal
The next priority is preventing further smoke damage and keeping fire odours from becoming permanent. Soot and smoke contains hundreds of harmful compounds that are toxic, corrode metals and glass, stain and discolour, and lead to almost permanent odours. EPSCO India team uses professional equipments to remove smoke and odour.
Water Damage Restoration

Much, if not all, of that can be avoided with immediate and thorough water extraction, structural dry out, and mould remediation.
