Common Causes of Fire Damage in Ririe

Fires are something that we all think happens to someone else and hope never happens to us. Unfortunately, fires can happen in multiple ways, and frequently they occur unexpectedly. Below are some of the most common causes of Ririe fire damage.

  • Electrical Malfunctions: Old or aging wiring systems can fail and start fires. Similarly, circuits that are overloaded can result in fires. 
  • Kitchen Accidents: Everyone eats and sometimes old or faulty appliances can result in fire. Another common kitchen accident is grease fires that can flare up unexpectedly. Grease fires that are mishandled can instantly turn a small problem into a larger one. 
  • Heating Systems: Outdated furnaces can lead to fires as can chimneys or pellet stoves. In Ririe, space heaters are often used to keep spaces warmer and can lead to fires.
  • Natural Disasters: Lightning strikes, brush fires and wildfires are often outside of human control and are some of the most common forms of fire. 
  • Human Error: Built-up combustible waste, unattended candles, hot coals, or careless smoking can often lead to fires started in the home from sources that seem relatively harmless.

Common Problems Posed by Fire Damage

Structural Damage 

In the case of a house fire, walls and supports that form the structural walls of your home can be damaged. If a fire is bad enough or located in a certain location of your home the structural integrity of your home can be completely compromised. This is most common when the fire damages load-bearing walls or structural beams. 

Dangerous Materials 

When emergency services fight fires they often need to break windows and cut ventilation, or access holes in walls and the roof to help them effectively fight the fire. This can lead to glass, and materials from your home being strewn about inside the home or hanging loose overhead. 

Smoke and Soot Residue 

Smoke and soot are the reminders of a fire after it has been extinguished. Smoke can permeate the home, leaving a lingering odor that can cause respiratory issues in sensitive people who have issues such as asthma. Soot can be left behind causing surfaces, walls, floors, and countertops to discolor. 

Water Damage from Emergency Services

Most firefighters have hoses that can dispense up to 300 gallons in a single minute. When fighting a fire at an average-sized home firefighters dispense around 2,500 gallons of water.  For larger homes, the figure can be closer to 500 gallons a minute with around 10,000 gallons of water being used. All that water can create the perfect breeding ground for mold and mildew, a problem that can plague homeowners long after the fire has been extinguished. The use of water can also contribute to structural damage as well as materials can be compromised after being waterlogged. 

Loss of Personal Belongings

In a house fire, irreplaceable family heirlooms or items with deep sentimental value can be lost. Unfortunately, these items are often irreplaceable. Furniture, clothing, and electronics can also be damaged during a fire or by a fire being extinguished. 

Health Hazards

Smoke exposure can lead to respiratory issues such as coughing, trouble breathing, asthma, itchy throat, and stinging eyes. If mold grows after the fire health concerns can also arise. 

Ririe Fire Damage Restoration Services and Solutions

At Ririe Fire Damage with Tobin Restoration, our goal is to take a proactive approach and help find solutions for the fire problem you face. We know how heartbreaking it can be to see your home with seemingly irreversible damage after a fire, and nothing makes us happier than restoring your home back to its pre-fire condition. We take the following steps to repair your home.

Board Up After Emergency Services

Emergency services often have to break windows, and doors, and cut access, or ventilation holes in walls and roofs to better fight the fire. After the fire is extinguished Tobin Restoration can secure the property by extracting standing water and boarding up windows, doors, and holes to keep your property safe and secure before full restoration can start.

Working With Fire and Local Authorities

After a fire is extinguished local fire authorities will need to conduct an investigation. At Tobin Restoration, we work with local authorities to make sure we don’t disturb the scene of the fire until it has been released by local authorities.

Damage Assessment

Once the property has been released by local authorities we will do a walkthrough of your property to create a comprehensive restoration plan for your property and possessions. We can also work with insurance companies to communicate these plans as well.

Deodorization with Smoke & Soot Removal

Once the restoration plan is in place we will start the restoration process. The first step is to work on removing the odor that smoke can leave behind through our deodorization process. With this step, we also work on leftover soot and smoke damage as these are often the sources of odors and once removed we can gain a better understanding of your restoration needs.

Restoration of Personal Property

We inventory, package and load your possessions to be transported back to our facilities where we can work on removing, cleaning, and disinfecting your property so that we can remove hazardous smoke residue. At Tobin Restoration, our team is always aware that you are entrusting us with your most personal, dear, and prized possessions and we make sure to treat everything with the same amount of respect and care that you would. 


Once we finish cleaning, deodorizing, sanitizing, and mitigating any damage we can finalize the restoration process by reconstructing your home. At Tobin Restoration, we can rebuild floors, walls, ceilings, and any structural elements that may have been damaged. We can also restore woodwork, texturing, or other elements of your home to make sure that it matches the rest of your home. Our goal is to make sure that when you walk into your home after we restore it, it matches your memories.
