Fire Damage Restoration for Essex, CT

Morrow Enterprises

(860) 791-4559

Of the natural disasters that can affect your home or building, fires may be the most dangerous.  A fire can start at any time from a number of different causes and they immediately pose a serious threat to your safety.  They can also cause very serious damage very quickly that will not stop once the fire is put out.  The flames will cause significant damage during the fire, and the corrosive byproducts the fire creates, including smoke and soot, will continue to cause damage after the fire.  In many cases, the secondary damage that occurs after the fire is greater than the damage that occurred during the fire.

As soon as the fire has been put out on your property, you need to contact a restoration professional to limit the secondary damage and begin the cleanup and repair.  Morrow Enterprises provides fire and smoke damage restoration services in Essex, CT to clean up and restore homes and commercial buildings after a fire.  We will help bring some order to the chaos after a fire and form a complete restoration plan that will get your home or building back to its pre-fire condition.

Understanding Fire and Smoke Damage in Essex, CT

The overall damage caused by fire tends to be multi-layered and happens in waves.  The first wave of damage is caused by the fire itself as the flames tear through furnishings, building materials, and anything in its way.  The flames can cause enough structural damage to a home or building to leave it unstable.  The next wave of damage is caused by the smoke, soot, and residue created by the burning of synthetic materials.  These byproducts are corrosive and will cause discoloration and etching to the affected materials.  It is important to call for fire damage restoration immediately after a fire because these materials will cause damage that can become permanent after the fire, and they can spread the damage by reaching areas that the fire did not reach.
