Here’s The Steps:

Assessing the Damage

In order to properly minimize further damage after a fire, we must mitigate the loss as soon as reasonably possible.  After a thorough inspection of the contents and structure Tobin Restoration will work with you and your insurance company to devise the plan for restoration.  Immediate cautions will need to be taken to prevent secondary damage to the structure and contents.

Emergency Services often needed after a fire include:

  1. Contact your insurance agent as soon as possible.
  2. Board up the structure to protect it from bad weather and prevent theft of your possessions.
  3. If you have lost power, winterize your home during the winter months.
  4. If the structure is not livable temporary housing may be needed during cleaning and restoration.
  5. Ventilate the structure to reduce odor and humidity.  Professional drying may be required.
  6. Remove firearms from the structure and take to a gun smith to be thoroughly cleaned.
  7. Furs, cash and jewelry must be addressed immediately to prevent further damage and theft.
  8. Itemize refrigerated and frozen items for reimbursement as needed.

After the emergency fire damage services have been addressed one of our trained restoration professionals will work with you and your insurance company to devise a plan for fire damage restoration to get you back into your normal daily life as soon as reasonably possible.

Fire Damage Restoration Summary:


After a thorough mitigation is completed, certain contents must be moved to make way for emergency procedures.  At this time careful attention will be taken to pack out your prized possessions as needed for cleaning or replacement.  Contents (personal property) include everything inside your home that is not attached to the structure.  (example: furniture, knickknacks, clothes, linens, pictures, etc…)


Once the contents have been taken care of, the demo can start on all building components deemed unsalvageable for restoration.  During this process pictures are taken and a sample of removed material is carefully documented for replacement. Once the fire damaged building components are removed cleaning and drying of the structure begins.

Cleaning Smoke Damage

Fires both big and small can cause major damage to the interior of a structure and its contents.  Smoke Damage Restoration is important because smoke can get into rooms that were shut and into the ventilation system and if it is not cleaned out then the smoke odor will return.

Odor Removal

Odor Removal is typically obtained by removing as much of the source as possible. If necessary, air filtration can be used to aid in clearing the air of odor.


The cleanup of water damage after a fire is common and must be attended to immediately to prevent mold growth.  Every drying situation is unique and deserves special attention.  Dehumidification involves testing humidity, moisture content, and an arsenal of drying equipment strategically placed to obtain the standard the IICRC considers dry.  We will discuss the scope for reconstruction with all parties involved in hopes of speeding up the reconstruction process and to have your home/ business back in working order with as little down time as possible.
