Fire damage clearances
Wherever they break out, fires are distressing and disruptive. We are here to eliminate overwhelm from the clear-up process for homeowners, facilities managers and estate agents. From stripping out and disposing of fire-damaged building materials and hazardous waste to locating hidden soot and ash deposits for removal, you can trust RJS Waste Management.
Here is a breakdown of our fire damage clearance services:
- Soot and ash removal – A quick clear-up is necessary to avoid secondary damage to your property caused by acidic carcinogenic particles in soot and ash.
- Soot clean-up – Soot particles are toxic when inhaled, and can linger in areas that are not always obvious, so your property needs a thorough clean to make it safe. We will use eco-friendly products and methods wherever possible.
- Firewater removal – Fire water could be hazardous owing to chemical compounds from the fire (toxins and pathogens) and sewage released from drains.
- Waste collection – This could be hazardous waste and includes building materials, fixtures and fittings damaged in the fire.
Our health and safety procedures for working in environments made hazardous by fire damage, including Risk Assessments and Method Statements (RAMS), are first-class.
What is more, we will work with the emergency services and your insurance company to assess the type and severity of fire damage and use the right clear-up measures based on these findings. This includes the use of the latest professional cleaning products to remove soot particles as well as safe and efficient techniques for fire water removal.
