When You Need Fire Damage Restoration Service

We can remove stains and soot from tile, marble, aluminum, brass, chrome, marble and even many fabrics.

The Fire Restoration Repair Process

Every fire restoration project is different, but our unique process will help restore your property to its pre-event condition.

  • Pre-Cleaning: Once our technicians arrive at your home, they’ll secure the site by sealing the doors and windows if required. In some instances, they may erect temporary barriers to prevent cross-contamination. When the building is fortified, they’ll focus on minimizing water and soot damage.
  • Water Damage Restoration: Water is essential for fighting a fire, but its use usually adds to the damage. Massive quantities of water sprayed on the fire can destroy your property and weaken the structure. Our techs use a water extraction, and drying process that completely removes standing water and residual moisture so more of your valuables can be recovered and preserved.
  • Contents Restoration: Once the cleaning is completed, we’ll survey your property to evaluate the damage to your belongings and the building itself. Unaffected pieces will be separated from those exposed to smoke, soot, and water. Salvageable items are dried, cleaned, deodorized and documented.
  • Odor Elimination: Airborne smoke and soot will seek out the smallest building penetrations. The entire pathway must be identified and completely cleaned and deodorized before the completion work can begin. ServiceMaster Professional Services’ service techs are trained to find and eliminate odors, which is a skill developed over many years of dealing with the most complex fire restoration projects.

Understanding Types of Smoke Damage

Understanding the various types of smoke or soot damage is crucial for effective cleanup and restoration after a fire. Different types of fires can result in different kinds of residues, each requiring specific cleaning methods.

Here are the main types of smoke damage:

  • Dry Smoke Residue: This type of residue damage occurs when the fire burns fast with a high temperature. It leaves a powdery, dry residue that doesn’t smear very much.

  • Fuel / Oil Residue: This type of residue only occurs if there is some sort of fuel or petroleum products involved in the fire. This type of soot is sticky and fairly difficult to clean.

  • Protein Residue: Residue of this nature is practically invisible but can discolor paints and other types of finishes. It has a very strong smell.

  • Wet Smoke Residue: This type of smoke damage occurs when the fire smolders with low heat. The residue is very sticky and has a powerful odor. Wet smoke residue smears a lot and is more difficult to clean.

  • Fire Extinguisher Residue: It’s understandable that you would do anything necessary to extinguish a fire. This means there can be residue to clean up from a fire extinguisher. Some extinguishers don’t require any clean up, but chemical fire extinguishers can leave a big mess.

Each type of smoke damage presents unique challenges for cleanup and restoration. Proper identification of the residue is essential for selecting the appropriate cleaning techniques and products to ensure thorough restoration after a fire.
