Evacuating safely is the top priority when a fire happens and as soon as the fire is put out, the restoration process must begin. The damage from the fire itself is bad enough, but soot and corrosive byproducts lingering in the aftermath can spread the damage beyond that caused by the fire and much of this damage can become permanent.

Smoke Damage Restoration
Most of the damage from a fire does not occur during the fire, but in the aftermath after the fire has been extinguished. Soot from the smoke and corrosive byproducts that are produced when synthetic materials are burned spread and settle on surfaces and objects long after the fire has been put out. These materials cause etching and discoloration on the affected surfaces and objects and this damage will become irreversible if the soot and corrosive byproducts are not cleaned up quickly enough. We use advanced chemical cleaners to remove tarnishing and etching from household surfaces and objects such as marble, brass, tile, aluminum, porcelain, stainless steel, and even carpeting and upholstery.
Soot is not the only way smoke can cause damage, it can also leave behind a foul odor. Smoke odors are annoying and difficult to remove because the odor can get absorbed in porous materials. We provide an effective deodorization process that removes the odor from affected objects and air spaces.
Just because the fire is out, that does not mean the damage has stopped. Your home or building can continue to sustain further damage after the fire is extinguished, making it important for the fire damage cleanup and restoration to begin right away.
