Smoke Damage Restoration
Cleaning up all the ash residue and removing charred objects from your property is important, it can still remain unliveable due to smoke damage. So removing the smoky odor is equally as crucial. Even a small, contained fire can produce enough smoke to fill adjoining rooms, soil carpeting, destroy artwork, and affect all kinds of personal articles. For that reason, we take care of all forms of cleaning, including smoke deodorization for the entire space, including furniture, clothing, electronics, and anything else that has suffered smoke damage.

On top of fire damage and smoke particle removal, there is bound to be some kind of water damage as a result of putting out the initial fire. Smoke can permeate through your entire property. It can travel anywhere, including into your ventilation system, making it absolutely essential that you count on the smoke removal experts when your home has been struck by fire of any size.

Our team will assess smoke, soot, and fire extinguisher residue damage anytime we get a call from our fire restoration clients. Upon thoroughly assessing the fire damage to your property, our experts can then recommend a list of items that can be salvaged and will work closely with you to restore as many of your belongings as possible back to their original condition.

Open all the windows to begin air circulation that will push the smoke out.

To start the fire restoration, take an inventory of everything in your home or office listing all items that must be replaced. At the same time, take pictures of all the damage as you will need to relay them to the insurance company, as well as the fire investigation authorities.

  • Avoid using electrical devices, including appliances, stereos, or TVs until your fire restoration service deems it safe.
  • Do not start cleaning by wiping down the walls, wood trim, and furniture, as well as any other absorbent surface.
  • Stay off upholstered furniture and do not move anything.
  • Discard any food products that were exposed to the extreme heat of the fire, including canned goods.
