Fire Damage

Fires are the second-leading cause of accidental deaths around the home. Due to the unique behavior of smoke, fire restoration is not simple. It is important to have an experienced restoration team on your side. A fast treatment will help reduce smoke and soot health hazards and damage.

Within Minutes
Acid soot residues cause plastics to yellow; small appliances located close to the source of combustion discolor; highly porous materials (marble, alabaster, etc.) will discolor permanently.

Within Hours
Acid residues stain grout in bathrooms; fiberglass bath fixtures may yellow; uncoated metals tarnish; counter tops may yellow; finishes on appliances, particularly refrigerators, may yellow; furniture finishes may discolor.

Within Days
In time, acid residues cause painted walls to yellow permanently; metal corrodes, pits and rusts; wood furniture requires refinishing; vinyl flooring requires refinishing or replacement; clothing becomes soot-stained; upholstery stains permanently.

Within Weeks
Restoration costs escalate tremendously.

Synthetic carpet fibers may yellow or discolor permanently; silver plate is corroded permanently; glass, crystal and china may require replacement due to severe etching and pitting caused by prolonged exposure to acid soot residues.

Cleaning up soot residue must be done as quickly as possible. During combustion, soot residue and volatile vapors are carried by rising and expanding air to surfaces throughout a structure and are deposited. This process occurs repeatedly until combustion ends, with soot residue building up on surfaces layer by layer. By the time restoration technicians arrive, lacquer-like soot residue may be quite difficult to dissolve and remove.

The use of de-ionized water combined with specialized detergents has revolutionized electronics cleaning and restoration in many ways. Rapid and thorough cleaning of most electronics with economical solutions is now possible. Even heavily contaminated electronics can be successfully restored to “pre-loss” or like new condition using this technology.  Contact us for all your electronic cleaning needs.

We will accompany you through the restoration process, bill your insurance company and help you get back to normal ASAP.
