Fire Damage Cleaning, East London

Fire Clean after Pan caught fire in Kitchen

In September 2011 Mrs Mina suffered fire and smoke damage to her property in East London after a chip pan fire caught light in the kitchen, and therefore needed our fire damage restoration services. Smoke and soot spread throughout the house affecting the kitchen, hall, living and dining rooms. The upper floor was also badly soot contaminated and the stairs, landing, all three upstairs bedrooms and bathroom needed cleaning.

Home interruption


After the fire had been extinguished the property was inspected by the appointed building contractors. The damage was so bad that Mrs Mina had to move out of her home and remain in temporary accommodation whilst the restoration work was being completed.

The kitchen units were badly damaged by the fire and were beyond saving. The kitchen units needed to be replaced by the building contractors after the structural cleaning had been done. We arrived on site 6 hours after the event and surveyed the property, and produced an estimate to clean, decontaminate and deodorise the house.

Technical situation


The Ideal Response estimate and work schedule was authorised by the clients building contractors and technicians were dispatched to carry out the essential fire damage cleanup work. The building contractors would not be able to repair and re-decorate the property until this was complete.

The floors, walls and ceilings, windows and doors in most of the rooms needed deep cleaning using specialist fire decontamination chemicals and materials. Once the surfaces were cleaned an odour control treatment was required in each room to remove any lingering fire and smoke smells.


We sent three experienced technicians to conduct the fire damage restoration at the property on 28th September. The affected areas in each room were thoroughly cleaned and an odour control treatment was completed using a fogging machine. Our fire damage cleaners team in London left the house clean and smelling fresh and ready for the building work to be completed.
