Fire and Smoke Damage
If you or someone you know has had a fire, or has property which suffered from smoke damage or soot damage it is critical to call us right away for help in determining the amount of damage as well as to provide emergency services.
After a fire there may be a great deal of damage that is not immediately visible or obvious. Emergency Corrosion Mitigation may be necessary depending on what burned and how the fire was put out. Some surfaces may be more vulnerable than others also.
Our professionals can help to determine if and what surfaces may need to be addressed immediately to prevent further damage. If a fire extinguisher was discharged, the ansle dust should be professionally cleaned with HEPA filtration. This dust is very small and light and travels throughout a structure quickly. The smoke and soot from the fire can reach throughout a structure quickly. We have tremendous experience and the right tools to help determine what areas are affected and which are not.
Never try to clean items on your own as different materials require special handling for restoration to be successful. Further damage may also result. There may be Water Damage from extinguishing the fire as well, which may require Emergency Services. Odor Removal/Control will be performed by working with the property owner and occupants to determine the best method for the circumstances.
