Fire & Smoke Damage Restoration

Fire not only destroys what it touches, but it also creates soot that adheres to walls, ceilings, floors, and contents. In addition, smoke leaves behind difficult-to-remove stains and odors. Rebuilding part of your home instead of constructing one from the ground up is a very specialized procedure.

Building materials, design, and finishes all have to be matched to the remaining structure. Smoke odor must be neutralized in all remaining building components

Lamunyon Dry Out & Foundation Repair’s fire damage restoration technicians have the expertise to clean virtually everything in your home that may be damaged by fire or smoke. From wood furniture to fine china, from electronics to fine art, we know the correct method for each item to remove smoke and odor deposits. Our goal is to restore your contents back to the condition they were before the loss.

Our Fire Damage Services Include:

All of our work is covered by a 1-year general warranty (excluding mold testing & remediation).

  • If you must be away from the property for a period of time, we’ll take steps to prevent plumbing from freezing in cold weather and secure property against theft or adverse weather.
  • We test and evaluate all damage to contents and structure and effectively communicate them to your insurance adjuster immediately to confirm the damage.

Preventing Fire Damage

Be sure to take the following preventative measures to prevent fire and smoke damage to your home or business:

  1. Has your electrical wiring been checked by a licensed electrician?
  2. Make sure appliances, like an iron, have an automatic shut off mechanism.
  3. Make sure your family or employees know where all fire extinguishers are located and how to use them.
  4. Make sure your family or employees know how to escape in case of a fire emergency.
  5. If in a two-story home, provide your family with fire escape ladders and practice how to use them.

Emergency Homeowners Tips

Do…

  1. Open Windows for ventilation, weather permitting.
  2. Limit foot traffic on affected carpeting.
  3. Change furnace filter if blower was in operation.
  4. Empty freezer and refrigerator completely if electricity is off. Prop doors open.
  5. Pour antifreeze in toilet bowls, sinks and tubs to prevent freezing if heat is off.
  6. Remove pets (especially birds).
  7. Secure the property against theft.

Do Not…

  1. Do not wipe or wash walls, ceilings or other surfaces.
  2. Do not use upholstered furniture if it can be avoided
  3. Do not attempt to clean upholstered furniture; improper cleaning may set smoke stains and odors.
  4. Do not use exposed food items, or canned goods which have been subjected to excessive heat.
  5. Do not use any electrical appliances until cleaned or checked.
  6. Do not send smoke damaged garments to an ordinary dry cleaner.
  7. Do not touch smoke damaged surfaces with fingers.

foundation repair-bowing walls/waterproofing/window wells in Topeka, KS

I waited to submit my review until the work completed was put to the test. Overall-this has been an exceptional experience. The work crew at Lamunyon headed by Caleb were very professional, efficient, courteous and hard working. There was no water in my basement during the heavy rains and flooding! Regarding service, I did have one minor problem and after letting them know, was contacted by Dave that same evening and a workman came to my home to fix it the next day. I was a little shocked by how quickly they took care of the problem. Without hesitation--I highly recommend them.

Repairs to settling foundation and bowed wall in Topeka, KS

Lamunyon's David Hoes and his crew were very professional about explaining the procedure in the way they were going to correct our problem.David and his crew very polite, courtesy, nice to talk to and polite. Our house had settled about 3" and the doors sticking or not closing. We also had a bowed basement wall with a lot of cracks. David and his crew came in with there equipment closed the basement door and went right t work. At the end of each day David would explain what they done for the day and that they will be here the next day and started about 8. It was unbelievable at the amount of work that they had to do just raise the house enough to secure the house from settling again. By Friday they had lifted the house, install three square beams in front of the bowed wall, cleaned up the dust and dirt, wiped off the floor on their hands and knee. Now, the doors close shut with no sticking, the house does not make cracking noise, and we feel alot better about our house now. We want to give these guys a big thank you and that they deserve praise from their company.
