Even a relatively small fire can present a challenging and complicated situation. Often emotionally devastating for the homeowner or business owner, it’s also technically challenging even for experienced fire and smoke damage restoration professionals. Usually, a large team is needed simply due to the extent of fire damage repairs and the need for speed in mitigating against further water and smoke damage. No two blazes are precisely alike, and different combinations of surfaces, materials, and types of smoke require unique cleaning and restoration solutions.

Smoke Damage and Odor Removal
The next priority is preventing further smoke damage and keeping fire odors from becoming permanent. Soot and smoke contain hundreds of harmful compounds that are toxic, corrode metals and glass, stain and discolor, and can lead to long-lasting odors. Dealing with all that requires far more than wiping with conventional detergents. Dry-ice and soda-blasting gear quickly clean large surfaces. For unreachable areas, thermal fog combines with odor-causing substances. Our ozone generators can break those odor compounds apart, even those deep within the structure.
Water Damage Restoration
With fire sprinkler activation, the use of fire hoses, or the use of foam, you’ll need water damage restoration as well. All that water will have soaked deeply into just about everything, leading to mold, wood buckling, and warping, and drywall crumbling in a matter of just a few days. You can avoid much, if not all, of that damage with immediate and thorough water extraction, structural dry out, and mold remediation.
A similar fire damage restoration process of drying, cleaning, and deodorizing applies to your building’s contents. We’ll take immediate action to remove possessions from wet and contaminated areas for their protection and to speed building drying and cleaning. As with the property, our goal is to return salvageable items to pre-loss condition.
