After Fire Cleaning Services Are Best Left to Professionals

It is our goal to restore your property as quickly and efficiently as possible. The cleaning and restoration may require several phases before completion. This depends on the source, nature, and size of the fire. To be successful in returning your property to pre-loss condition, consider the following tips. First, we suggest that you do not attempt any do-it-yourself cleaning methods. We recommend consulting with a ServiceMaster of Rochester IICRC Certified Restoration Technician first. Cleaning could actually make the damage worse, as touching surfaces covered in soot can permanently set the soot.

After our smoke restoration, which we tailor to your particular case or situation, your home or business should be as good as new!

Restoration vs. Replacement

We will work to restore all property to a pre-loss condition when possible. However, some items just cannot be restored. Others could cost more to restore than they are actually worth. We will advise you and your insurance claim representative, and explain the limits of what we as professional restorers can do.

Part of our fire damage restoration service involves recognizing when it’s possible for us to restore damage. We can assess when items or features of a structure may need to be replaced. Fortunately, we can generally restore most fire damage to the state it was in prior to the fire. However, if we feel that smoke damage restoration or mold damage is going to cost more to restore than to replace, we always let customers know. This way, you can weigh the benefits yourself.

There are a number of common items and materials that should usually be replaced rather than cleaned after a fire. Any material or object that is porous will have smoke particles inside of it. These will continually eat away at materials. They will also leave an irremovable odor, and potentially have toxic consequences for someone exposed to them. If the following items have suffered from flame damage or heat, consider replacing.

  • Insulation
  • Plastics
  • Foods
  • Furniture + Mattresses
  • Glass windows
  • Wood that has charred
  • Wiring
  • Carpet
  • Clothing and fabrics
  • Paper products
  • Porous materials

Although most of the items above are non-salvageable after a fire, there are always exceptions. Sometimes unique circumstances may allow for restoration. Our professional crew may be able to clean valuable items that are porous using specialized cleaning techniques. Specialized cleaning after a fire is usually too time-intensive and costly for restoring all items affected by a fire. But it is a helpful option in many cases if you have possessions that are worth preserving.

Emergency Fire Restoration Services

Emergency services include boarding up or covering areas of your property with a tarp. This can secure the property and protect it from the elements. We will inspect your furnace or air conditioner.
