Phase 1: Mitigate
The mitigation phase is used to demo, clean, dry and treat so the structure can be successfully re-built. The first thing typically is cleaning and placing of any salvageable contents in storage. An assessment is then made as to what building materials (drywall, flooring etc) have been damaged, and if it was damaged to the point of repair or demolition. The building materials that can't be saved are demolished. After the demo we do a thorough cleaning of the structure. Hepa vac, odor counteractants, plant based anti-microbials, fire sponges, primers, sealers, air duct cleaning, sanding, soda blasting etc are usually typical during this process. After the contents are out, the demo is done and the structure is clean, we can start the commercial drying process. The water used to put out the fire has saturated the remaining building materials and in order to properly rebuild, we need to pull the bound water that's now trapped inside them. This is critical. Installing drywall, flooring etc over framing that feels dry, but holding bound water will result in serious problems down the road.
