Fire Damage Restoration For Multi-Family Homes in Birmingham, AL

Fires in multi-family homes are a crisis that everyone hopes to avoid. But when they do happen, having the right restoration company on your side is critical to recovering the property and returning life to normal. It’s not a challenge that every company will take on, but the team at Royal Restoration has the tools and expertise to face these catastrophes head-on.

The Metropolitan, a 165,000-square-foot multi-family home located in Birmingham, AL, caught fire when a nearby construction site went up in flames. The fire was extremely hot and fast-burning due to the materials being used at the site of the fire. Firefighting efforts left the Metropolitan completely inundated with water, and the flames caused extensive soot and smoke damage throughout all four floors of the building. After setting up the initial containment, the team began the meticulous process of full-scale remediation, including water extraction, moisture mapping, demolition, and reconstruction.

Industry Specialization: Royal Restoration Specializes in Professional Multi-Family Home Fire Damage Recovery

There are many hidden challenges when it comes to restoring multi-family homes from fire damage. One of the often overlooked aspects of fire damage is the lingering water damage from the firefighting efforts. The Metropolitan was no different, and the Royal Restoration team went above and beyond to perform full-scale water extraction efforts for all four floors of the building. Industrial environmental hygienists were brought in to test for any microbial growth. Once detected, special cleaning techniques, including ozone treatments, were deployed.

The damage was so severe that each floor had to be completely deconstructed down to the studs. The materials were then encapsulated, and each floor was carefully cleared of mold, mildew, soot, and other hazardous residues. The environmental hygienists were brought in once again after the cleaning efforts to confirm that all traces of dangerous materials were gone. Once the hazardous materials were cleaned up, the extensive reconstruction efforts could begin. The Royal Restoration team worked with the city of Birmingham to help coordinate the traffic, trash control, and demolition efforts, making sure all the correct permits were pulled and ensuring everything ran as smoothly as possible.
