Smoke and Fire Damage Restoration for Plymouth, MN
Fires can cause an extensive amount of damage to a home or building almost in an instant and even after the fire is extinguished, the damage does not stop spreading. Synthetic materials in many household objects such as furniture, appliances, and flooring release dangerous emissions and corrosive byproducts when burned that will continue to cause damage long after the fire is out. These corrosive byproducts can cause irreversible damage and etching within 72 hours.
ServiceMaster Professional Services provides smoke and fire damage restoration services for homes and businesses that have been damaged by fire in Plymouth, MN. We have the proper training and equipment to clean and restore the furnishings and structural elements of the building and we can also salvage at-risk household surfaces such as aluminum, chrome, marble, brass, tile, porcelain, carpeting, and upholstery using specific chemical combinations.
What to Do After a Fire
- Make sure to call us immediately after the fire is extinguished because corrosive byproducts can cause the damage to become permanent.
- If the temperature is above 60 degrees, open up doors and windows to air out the building.
- Prevent permanent tarnishing by cleaning chrome, Formica, aluminum, and porcelain fixtures.
- If your furnace uses forced hot air, replace the air filter.
- Filter loose soot from the air by taping a damp cheesecloth over the return and supply registers.
