Restoring Peace of Mind®

smoke damage restoration

During a fire, smoke is driven by heat created by flames. No matter where the fire originates, smoke may penetrate throughout a building's structure. Smoke also combines with humidity and can form corrosive residues that may cause secondary damage.

Long after the fire is put out, the damage can continue, as remaining free-floating smoke settles on horizontal surfaces and contents.

Fire does burn, but residual smoke may burn as well. This is sometimes called etching, pitting or chemical burning. Quick response and action are critical. The more time that elapses before treatment, the greater the damage.

We are a highly reputable, licensed, insured and endorsed provider of fire and smoke restoration services. In addition to our years of experience, our uniformed Restoration Technicians have completed advanced training in fire mitigation, restoration systems and corrosion control. We also require continuing education to learn about new techniques and equipment to better serve you in your time of need.

It is our goal to restore your property as quickly and efficiently as possible. Depending on the source, nature and size of the fire, the cleaning and restoration may require several phases before completion.

We use the latest equipment and supplies in our fire and smoke restoration process.

Structure Cleaning

Even when the fire is out, the damage continues. Much of the material found in furniture and flooring is synthetic. When burned, synthetics create a variety of complex chemical reactions. After only a few days, these items go from cleanable to unsalvageable. Our technicians are experts in understanding the chemical combinations that can effectively clean and salvage belongings. They can even remove soot from at-risk items such as brass, aluminum, chrome, marble, tile and porcelain as well as fabrics in upholstery and carpets, thus helping to avoid additional expenses. The faster you react, the better chance of salvaging your belongings.
