Fire and Smoke Damage Restoration

After the fire is out and the fire department leaves, property owners are often left with extensive damage to their property from fire, smoke, and even water from putting out the fire. No matter the cause of the fire, the damage can be overwhelming and quite devastating. We can help.

When a fire breaks out in your home or business, it is important to contact a professional fire restoration company immediately. Our professional fire damage cleanup crew will be able to analyze the extent of the damage and determine the best course of action to properly cleanup and repair your property. The sooner you call us, the greater the chances that we will be able to restore instead of replace your property.

What Happens After a Fire

The following is a timeline of the damages that often happen following a home fire. Your personal and valuable items can be severely damaged and irreparable if not cleaned as soon as possible to limit your losses.

  • Within minutes: Acidic soot residue causes plastic to yellow, highly porous material such as marble and alabaster discolor permanently, and small appliances located close to the source of combustion discolor.
  • Within hours: Acid residue stain grout in bathrooms, uncoated metals tarnish, furniture finishes might discolor, countertops may yellow, finishes on certain appliances such as refrigerators may yellow, and fiberglass bath fixtures may also yellow.
  • Within days: Painted walls will begin to yellow, wood furniture may permanently discolor, vinyl flooring may need to be replaced, upholstery will discolor permanently, clothing also discolors permanently, and metal surfaces corrode and even rust.
  • Within weeks: Damage tremendously escalates. Silver surfaces are permanently corroded, synthetic carpet fibers yellow or discolor permanently, and glass and crystal materials may etch necessitating replacement.

Lingering smoke and soot also poses a threat to your health. Having a certified and insured fire damage restoration team clean and restore your property will help protect your and your family from serious health risks.
