Fire & Smoke Damage Restoration

Fast Action is Important

Following the initial fire or smoke-related incident, smoke and soot will settle on surfaces creating additional damages to the structure and your contents.

Material in furniture and flooring is often synthetic and when burned, creates chemical reactions. After only a short period of time, items can go from cleanable to unsalvageable. The longer acid or corrosive gasses stay on at-risk surfaces, the worse pitting or etching becomes. We remove soot from aluminum and chrome shelving, marble, tile and glass as well as from fabrics in upholstery and carpets.

What Not to Do

  • Do not touch anything with your bare hands. Oil from your hands can permeate upholstery, walls and woodwork, causing additional damage.
  • Do not wash walls. Incorrect cleaning could compound the soot residue.
  • Do not attempt to clean carpets or upholstered furniture.
  • Do not use electrical appliances until having them checked.
  • Do not use ceiling fixtures if the ceiling is wet.

TIPS FOR KEEPING YOUR HOME SAFE FROM FIRE DAMAGE IN THE FUTURE:

  • Place a smoke alarm on each floor of your home and one in each bedroom.
  • Store fire extinguishers within reach in the kitchen and utility areas.
  • Schedule service and cleaning annually for furnaces, heating systems, chimneys and fireplaces.
  • Avoid overloading electrical circuits. Check extension cords and fuse boxes or circuit breakers, making sure there is never a combination of appliances that exceeds 1500 watts on the same circuit.
