A fire can throw your life into sudden chaos. After the fire extinguished, damage to your home and belongings continues.

When synthetic materials such as furniture and flooring burned, they generate complex chemical reactions.

We have expert restoration technicians that understand these chemical reactions and use the best techniques to effectively clean and save your belongings.

We are also able to remove soot from items that are at risk such as:

  • Brass, aluminum and chrome
  • Marble, tile and porcelain
  • Carpets and upholstery

We use the latest supplies and equipment in our five-step fire and smoke restoration process:

  • Wall and ceiling cleaning
  • Fire damage cleanup
  • Deodorization

To keep the fire damage cleanup to a minimum, follow these steps.

What to do:

  • Corrosive byproducts can cause irreversible etching in as few as 72 hours. Call for professional help.
  • If the temperature is above 60 degrees, air out the house to reduce smoke odor.
  • Clean Formica, chrome, porcelain and aluminum fixtures to prevent permanent tarnishing or etching.
  • Change the air filter on your furnace if it uses forced hot air.
  • Tape damp cheesecloth over returns and supply registers to capture loose soot in the air.
  • Discard any open food packages.
  • If the electricity off, clean out the refrigerator and leave doors propped open.
  • Send clothing with heavy smoke damage to a qualified restoration dry cleaner.

What not to do:

  • Touch anything with your bare hands. Oil from your hands can permeate upholstery, walls and woodwork, causing additional damage.
  • Wash walls. Incorrect cleaning could compound the soot residue.
  • Attempt to clean carpets or upholstered furniture.
  • Use electrical appliances until having them checked.
  • Turn on ceiling fixtures if the ceiling is wet.
