It’s Important to Have Awareness While Repairing Fire Damage – Bedford, NH

Written by jsolloway on . Posted in , , .

Repairing fire damage is not an easy task.  Think about the theater in Bedford, NH.  Fire trucks came to put out the fire.  After the firefighters put out the fire, the theater needed repairs for the structural damage to the building, as well as soft contents restoration for all the costumes and props that were covered in soot and smoke.  On top of this, the theater needed air duct cleaning because of soot and smoke making its way into the HVAC units, and during the extinguishing of the fire, areas now experienced water damage due to exposure from the fire hoses.

That’s a long list that one disaster restoration company will have to accommodate when they come to observe and repair the damage, right?  To think that all of these tasks could simply be avoided… it would have saved the theater so much time, money, and allowed for theater production if the fire had been prevented in the first place, and there was no need for repairing fire damage. 

Awareness is Free, But Repairing Fire Damage Costs a Fee

Not all fires occur naturally.  Some may assume that many fires occur naturally, but most occur due to human error.  Fires generally happen when people aren’t paying attention while cooking, smoking, or working in the office.  In the case of the theater in Bedford, NH, a theater worker left one of the unsteady lights unattended.  The hot light fell to the floor, causing a fire to occur backstage.  The fire spread to consume parts of the theater, and many lives had been threatened just because a stage worker had been careless when handling electrical fixtures.

Human carelessness and unawareness are mostly responsible for fires.  The National Fire Protection Association lists several incidents where fires are caused by human carelessness, ranked in order from most common to least:

  • Cooking equipment
  • Electrical and lighting systems
  • Heating equipment
  • Arson
  • Smoking materials
  • Exposure
  • Office or electronic equipment

If people simply paid attention to the task at hand, none of these incidents would have caused a fire.  Now, because a fire has happened, the theater staff must seek a disaster restoration company for repairing fire damage.   

Finding the Right Company for Disaster Restoration

Disaster restoration companies will always be there for repairing fire damage, but they cannot repair human lives.  When handling fire, keep in mind who and what is at stake if a fire is not properly taken care of.  Just as much as it is important to seek out a company for cleaning up the fire and smoke damage, it is just as essential to develop a fire safety program to prevent such occurrences in the future.

All I have to say is WOW and FANTASTIC. I just got done building out my new professional office with Soil-Away’s construction division and they went ABOVE and BEYOND. Scott and Mike, the carpenters are skilled artisans. The project got done on time and the project came in on budget! The finished results have been blowing people away. Much better than I could have anticipated. Anyone is welcome to come to our office, Bright Light Chiropractic in Hooksett to check out the fine work they did. Simply can’t sing enough praises for them. Sorry that the picture doesn’t do the job justice. Thank you Jack and your team. -Dr. Jay

Since day one, I’ve known the owner, Jack, to be a hard-working and selfless leader. Through the efforts of him and his team, he was able to restore my flooded restaurant to tip-top shape. I was amazed with Jack’s orderliness throughout the entire process. Jack has proven to me that he is trustworthy, as both a friend and an individual in the work environment.

Highly recommend Soil-Away. A pipe in our upstairs bathroom gave and sent water down through a wall for at least a day before we noticed water dripping through our kitchen ceiling. Our insurance put us in touch with Soil-Away and they were at our house the next morning to assess the damage and dry things out. Joe, Ray and Tom were phenomenal to work with. They explained every part of the process to us and were very professional and friendly. If you have to deal with similar issues call Soil-Away, you won’t regret it.
