San Antonio, TX April 2011 Professional fire and smoke restoration is an incredibly complex task, in part due to the toxic gases that are released from the burning of construction materials such as solvents and glues. These gases are very dangerous and only a certified fire restoration company should perform the damage assessment. Vintage Reconstruction expert fire and water restoration services can detect and neutralize these chemicals and remove hazardous odors from the air. Our fire restoration services will remove soot from the property and, as a part of the fire damage restoration process, we also handle the delicate tasks of removing ash from all of your electronics, appliances, books, artwork and important documents. We can help you determine what items can be safely restored and what needs be replaced (for insurance purposes). Vintage Reconstruction understands how difficult the loss of personal property can be and takes the utmost care to restore items back to their original condition whenever possible. Smoke odor removal from burned structures with water damage in San Antonio is a multiphase process that needs to begin within hours or days after the loss, and continue from tear-out to dry-in and finishing. There are two types of odor with which you are dealing: smoke odor and biological (fungi, bacteria) odor. The fire caused the smoke odor, while the biological issue is caused by the water used in extinguishing the fire, coupled with time. If anything, the water likely exacerbated the fire contamination and odor.

Hiring the right fire restoration company is critical to repairing the complexities of your fire damage adequately. We help you not only bring your home or commercial property back to "pre-fire" status after fire and water damage, but we also handle the fire damage claim and water damage insurance claim process, so you don't have to. Call Vintage Reconstruction today for a professional that's up to the job! Experiencing a fire in your home or office is a traumatic event. Fire damage restoration and smoke removal is a complex task that should only be performed by a professional fire restoration company. Like Vintage Reconstruction. Thermal fogging, while effective, is not a panacea for resolving all odor problems in your structure. It’s merely a Band-Aid for a complex problem and proper procedures that should begin at the very outset of the specific loss and continue throughout the entire process. Restoration has developing into a science that is practiced by trained professionals, with necessary procedures arrived at through a cooperative effort by all parties to the claim: foremost the insured, the insurance company’s representative (agent, adjuster), and an experienced contractor. There is no room for vital restoration procedures being decided upon based on the whim of the adjuster, and for the contractor to blame the insurance company for “not authorizing” reasonable and prudent restoration procedures is inexcusable. Likewise, the insurance company declining coverage for reasonable and prudent restoration is equally inexcusable.

It is highly suggested that all parties rely on the IICRC Water Damage Restoration Standard, combined with information contained in the ASCR Fire Restoration Best Practices Guide. But the bottom line is that the insured controls their own claims within the confines of their contract (the insurance policy) with their particular insurance company. Mold becomes a significant problem when it lands on any damp spot and begins growing, and mold has the potential to cause health problems such as allergic reactions sneezing, runny noses, red eyes, and skin rashes. It can also irritate the eyes, skin, nose, throat, and lungs. Immediate Action is once again important. Once established, mold is extremely difficult to eliminate, frequently causing problems for many months after the remediation and recovery effort are accomplished. Our client service is second to none in this industry, and our past projects are available for a inspection during our warranty period so that potential maintenance issues can be addressed prior to them becoming a problem. Please call us if you would like to schedule such an inspection. In the event we find that the integrity of your roof was compromised by the storm, emergency repairs are made immediately to prevent further damage to the interior of your property. Getting a roof repaired is something most Texas homeowners dread, and when the roof does need repair, it is important to get not only the finest quality materials available but the best price on installing those materials as well. Most of us will start the process by getting an estimate of roof repair from a few South Texas roofing contractors, and it is important for all homeowners to learn how to read this important document properly. Our Roof Repair Division at Vintage Reconstruction has grown to become one of the most well-known facets of our business. We take tremendous pride in our reputation as the best roof repair contractor in the San Antonio area.
