In the event of a fire, more than just fire damage can occur in a property. Smoke damage can also occur during a fire in the property and can spread to rooms unaffected by the fire. Also, additional damage that can occur resulting from fire is water damage.

When extinguishing a fire full pressure hose reels are used, these hoses are specifically for fires. While helping to extinguish the fire, the hoses can cause water damage to the property. Fire, smoke and water damage are all difficult to repair and if reinstated incorrectly problems may occur in the future. Our contractors are trained to ensure that this is not the case.

The extent of the fire and smoke damage to the property may not be detected by inexperienced builders. Fire Restoration no matter how small or large will be carried out by our fire restoration experts. Fire damage is classified into two areas primary and secondary.

Primary & Secondary Damage

Primary damage is commonly fire damage as it is easy to spot burnt walls and items. Secondary damage is classified as the unseen damage such as water damage and electrical damage. While it is possible to spot water damage and electrical damage, to assess the level of these damages takes experience in the restoration field. ICN has experienced contractors who will be extremely effective at spotting all primary and secondary damages in a property to ensure the full repair work is carried out.

Smoke and water damage resulting from the fire can be absorbed into the structure of the building. If a material absorbs a large amount of smoke or water the material will most likely need to be removed and replaced. This is to ensure the property is stable when fire reconstruction begins. This is all managed during the restoration works by the Independent Contractors Network.

If your property is severely damaged from fire, smoke or water damage, we will promptly setup building repair works. These fire restoration works will reconstruct your property back to its original state. ICN communicate directly with your loss adjusters and surveyors providing all evidence of communication keeping you fully updated at all times.

Fire Restoration

Fire restoration work depends on the fire itself, whether it was a small contained fire or an uncontrollable blaze. Small fires may only inflict minor structural damage while large fires can wreak havoc on support beams and walls throughout a home making it unstable. It is important to have an experienced fire restoration specialist, to ensure no accidents occur during repairs.

If they are noticed within two years of the construction then the contractor may be obliged to restore any damage and fix any defects.

If these defects are left long enough and if the problems worsen, it can leave your home being unsafe to live in.

When you claim through your insurer, which can be a long and problematic procedure, your appointing a loss adjuster that isn’t working on your behalf.

Cavity Wall Insulation – My Cavity Claim

Cavity Wall Insulation – My Cavity Claim

Did you know at the start of April 2013, 19.1 million homes in Great Britain alone had Cavity Wall Insulation installed?
Cavity Wall Insulation The problem that occurs with this is that the materials that some installers use don’t inhibit heat, and subsequently complications in the property’s arise because it hasn’t been installed adequately and in accordance with CIGA (Cavity Insulation Guarantee Agency) guidelines.

Problems That Can Occur With Cavity Wall Insulation

As well as not keeping the heat in your home and having no effect on preventing the cold entering  your property, cavity insulation can also causes damp. This is because in the winter the rain will permeate through if the insulation installer hasn’t used the correct material and isn’t installed in the correct way.

When this happens, it can cause wet patches on inside walls and lead to mould, which causes a black sheet of bacteria. It can also lead to defects on the exterior wall. The home should be inspected and If it isn’t eligible for cavity  insulation then it simply shouldn’t receive it. If you have been unfortunate enough to of been effected by poorly fitted Wall Insulation and the problems that go with it then a reccomended company to help your cause is

Additional problem that can be triggered by incorrectly fitted cavity wall insulation is wall tie corrosion. When cavity wall insulation is installed, wall ties will be needed in order to keep the cavity wall insulation together. Whatever material the wall ties are made of, they will corrode eventually and if the cavity wall insulation has been wrongly fitted, they will corrode at a much quicker rate as they will be constantly damp. Replacement wall ties can also prove very difficult to fit, which is why more often then not you need professional help.

Cavity Wall Help

There are millions of homes in Great Britain that have wall insulation installed without damp, mould or wall tie corrosion. In some other cases, homeowners can receive pay-outs of up to £50,000. If you have been affected by wrongly fitted cavity insulation or have any general enquiry about cavity wall insulation, then you should feel free to call My Cavity Claim.

DriTech can also provide you with more information, why not have a look at their website:

Unfortunately, it doesn’t stop there, soot damage which is caused when wood, coal or oil based substances are burned, releasing carbon particles into the air which eventually settle down, leaving a coat of very fine black dust, which can have a deadly outcome if inhaled. If any items are contaminated in such a manner, a fire restoration professional must assess any the damage and will advise if restoration is possible.


Water damage may also be a factor and will cause additional damage that will need urgent attention to avoid any further issues, such as mould which can grow in colonies within 48hrs. Water damage is often overlooked when you think of fire restoration, even though water is a key component to extinguishing fires.
