Structure Fire & Wildfire Smoke Assessments

The danger doesn’t end when the fire's out. Are you ready to determine when your building is safe to reoccupy or what items are salvageable?

After a major fire event, it’s often difficult to know where to start. Does my building have damage? Was there fire damage to surrounding homes or businesses? The area I live and work in was blanketed in wildfire smoke – what does that mean for my family’s health?

FACS performs assessments to help understand and manage the impacts of structural fires or wildfire smoke and particulates on residential structures, business structures and the contents inside of these structures. The assessments can help property owners, healthcare providers, schools & universities, residential owners and insurance companies understand and quantify the impact.

FACS experts review the fire proximities, identify smoke infiltration pathways, perform visual inspections for staining/particulate and collect surface dust samples for microscopic analysis to assess the severity of the damage & health impacts. Once an assessment has been completed, we provide conclusions regarding impacts to structures and contents as well as provide recommendations for corrective actions.
