The best fire damage restoration response team in Georgia and Johns Creek
Restoration cleanup from fire damage can be very problematic due to other factors besides the fire. These factors are heat, smoke, and soot produced by the fire. All of these elements usually cause more extensive damage in your property than the actual flames from the fire. Also in an effort to extinguish the flames firefighters must use water, this too causes extensive damage throughout the entire property. With the quick response from R4 Restoration we mitigate the amount of damage by quickly removing the water, drying the space while simultaneously using the proper tools to clean soot, smoke, and oder from affected items in your Georgia household or business. Smoke damage can also contain toxic chemicals potentially causing severe health problems and even death. While you may not be able to see all the damage from a fire, it can find its way through all the systems in your house, plumbing, ventilation, and heating and air. All the way through damaging expensive equipment and leaving odors that can be extremely difficult to get remove.
When you call the R4 Emergency Restoration Number 770-212-2225 we immediately come out night or day and evaluate your Johns Creek property or business.

First Fire Damage Remediation Step
The R4 professional assigned to your case will do a complete assessment of your property. They will check each room of your Johns Creek GA home or business to determine how deep the fire penetrated the structure, how much soot and smoke covered surfaces and check for signs of heat damage to furniture, fixtures, appliances and walls. This report will be recorded and documented for insurance purposes.
Second Fire Damage Remediation Step
Any furniture and other household items not touched by soot, smoke, flame or heat will be separated and removed from the home as soon as possible, this will protect those items from lingering smoke and embers. Once all salvageable items such as drapes, furniture, appliances and other household items have been removed the drying process will begin.
Third Fire Damage Remediation Step
You're R4Restoration professional will bring in equipment to remove and extract excess water from your Johns Creek GA home or business. While extracting the water we will also set up specialized blowers, heaters, fans, and dehumidifiers that will not only remove moisture and soot from the air which will also kick start the odor removal process. We will also install the necessary moisture and vapor barriers to protect any portion of your home that was not damaged by fire, water, smoke, soot or heat. If the fire was extensive and the flames penetrated your attic or roof, our professionals will confer with the fire department as to when it is safe enough for our team to tarp over your roof to keep outside elements from entering and producing additional damage. We will also, as necessary board up any external access to your Georgia home or business. All of these processes should be done as soon as possible to protect your property from further damage.
