The two most important steps to prevent further destruction during fire damage restoration are:
- Have a professional restoration service on site immediately after the fire is put out – time is of the essence.
- Have a professional restoration service that you trust and has the experience to make “key decisions” for recovering damaged property.

Experience the King’s Quality Difference
A large part of what goes into successful disaster recovery is asking the right questions. No two fires are the same! Neither are the fire retardation effects. So we approach fire damage restoration projects with these crucial preliminary questions:
1. What kind of fire was it (e.g., electrical, wildfire, grease)?
2. What type of facility (e.g., daycare, warehouse)?
3. How was it suppressed (e.g., water, foam, Halon)?
4. What contents were in the burning building (e.g., pesticides, newspaper)?
5. How quickly do you need the facility open (e.g., for retail, operations, living)?
Safeguarding Your Property
Once the initial clean up has been addressed, our technicians will secure your property by boarding up windows, securing doors, erecting a fence, and covering firefighting holes in the structure. These precautions will protect your property from looters and unfavorable weather conditions that can cause additional damage.
Documenting The Scene
As your fire damage restoration contractor, our technicians will take plenty of photographs and help you inventory items that have been destroyed and damaged. Then we will pack-out the damaged items to be cleaned or repaired.
Secondary Damage and Mold Growth Prevention
In most fires, firefighters use at least some water to quench the flames. Wet building materials will grow mold in the right conditions within 24-48 hours. In order to avoid this additional damage, it is imperative that wet structural materials be dried out as quickly as possible. The Kings Quality Recovery team will employ high-performance fans and dehumidifiers to dry the building materials very rapidly, thereby reducing the chances for secondary damage and mold to develop.
Cleaning of Contents
Chemicals from smoke residues can permanently stain or change surface finishes in your home. As a qualified fire-restoration contractor, we are experienced in smoke residue and soot clean up and will save as many of your personal items as possible.
Another consideration after a fire is odor. Odors can extend beyond the footprint of the fire. We will address and eliminate any odor that has permeated your home through various methods including: cleaning, paint sealing, and treatment with hydroxyl radicals or ozone.
Rebuilding Fire-damaged Property
Once the smoke damage has been addressed, we will rebuild your home to its pre-existing condition. Repairs may range from a small electrical repair to rebuilding the house from the ground up. As a licensed General Contractor we aim to rebuild your property and bring you home as quickly as possible.
