Restoration Services for Home Fire Damage in Seattle
If you have experienced a fire in your home or business and are searching to find the right company to provide restoration services in Seattle or Bellevue, you’ve come to the right place. Smoke and fire damage restoration is a time sensitive process that requires the right equipment and cleaning protocols to ensure your property is restored.
We suggest that you do not attempt any “do-it-yourself” cleaning methods without consulting your ServiceMaster of Seattle Restoration Project Manager. It is very easy to make the damage worse if you do not follow proper protocols. Touching surfaces covered in soot can permanently set the soot onto that piece of furniture or fabric due to the oils on your fingertips. Please consider the complex chemical reactions and hidden damages that are best restored with specific products, equipment and expert methods by industry professionals. Returning your property back to pre-loss condition and helping people return their lives to pre-loss condition is what we do best.
Understanding Fire & Smoke Damage
No matter where the fire originates, smoke may penetrate throughout the structure of a building. If smoke combines with excess humidity and moisture, it can form a corrosive residue that may cause secondary damages to your property and the contents within.
What many don’t know is that the fire itself isn’t the only burning element during a fire. Residual smoke may cause burns as well. Burning caused by residual smoke is occasionally called etching, pitting or chemical burning. A quick response and proper action is critical to limit these types of damages, as the more time that passes before action is taken, the greater the damages will be.
It’s our goal to restore your property as quickly and efficiently as possible. Depending on the source, nature and size of the fire, the cleaning and restoration process may require several phases before completion.
While each fire or smoke loss is unique, the information can be generalized. We hope to answer your questions and aid you in understanding the processes and procedures required for restoring your property.
We understand that as a property owner, you deserve clear and thorough communication. We give our full cooperation to both you and your insurance claims representative in order to provide the best service and most efficient processing of your claim possible.
