Smoke Damage Restoration Company in Dallas, TX

Serving the Dallas, TX area since 1978.

Fires can cause extensive damage in any home or building, but they only cause 1 layer of damage. The others are all derived from the soot and smoke because they are left to sit on the affected materials after the fire is extinguished.

If these byproducts are left to sit on these surfaces without applying proper disaster restoration methods, they can not only cause etching and tarnishing but also leave behind a thick odor.

ServiceMaster of North Texas provides professional smoke damage restoration services in the Dallas, TX area, restoring building materials while eliminating lingering odor particles. Our professional cleaning agents allow our fire restoration technicians to fully clean and restore building materials and furnishings to their original conditions.

Risk of Permanent Damage from Soot and Smoke

Getting rid of the fire is the first step to limiting the damage, but only professional cleaning can fully prevent it from spreading.

This is because the heat from the flames creates chemical reactions that cause synthetic materials to produce an oily residue, while the smoke produces soot particles to settle into the remaining materials.

Over time, the corrosive smoke residue will cause permanent damage to the material, thus, it will need to be thrown away.

But when called right away, our smoke restoration technicians will use powerful cleaners to remove all soot and oily residue left behind.

Common materials cleaned by these agents include carpet, furniture upholstery, carpeting, tile, marble, and various metals.
