WHEN YOU EXPERIENCE FIRE OR SMOKE DAMAGE, FAST ACTION IS IMPORTANT
Following the initial fire or smoke-related incident, smoke and soot will settle on surfaces creating additional damage to the structure and contents of your property.
Materials in furniture and flooring are often synthetic and when burned, create chemical reactions. The longer these chemicals, acids or corrosive gasses are left on at-risk surfaces, the worse the pitting or etching damage becomes. After only a short period of time, your belongings and fixtures can go from cleanable to unsalvageable. Our professional pre-cleaning techniques neutralize the acids and protect surfaces from further damage. We remove soot from aluminum and chrome shelving, marble, tile, and glass, as well as from fabrics in upholstery and carpets, and more.

WHY YOUR HOME OR BUSINESS NEEDS SMOKE AND FIRE DAMAGE RESTORATION
During a fire, smoke is driven by heat and penetrates throughout your home. Smoke can combine with humidity and form corrosive residues. Residual smoke may burn as well, causing etching, pitting or chemical burning on surfaces. The longer your home goes without smoke and fire damage repair, the greater the damage that may occur.
Smoke and fire damage restoration requires several phases. We use the most up-to-date technology, equipment and procedures in our fire damage restoration process:
- Emergency pre-cleaning
- Corrosion Mitigation
- Content cleaning
- Content pack-out
- Wall and ceiling cleaning

TIPS FOR PREVENTING FIRES IN HOME OR BUSINESSES:
- Place a smoke alarm on each floor of your home or business (and one in each bedroom at home).
- Store fire extinguishers within reach in the kitchen and utility areas.
- Schedule service and cleaning annually for furnaces, heating systems, chimneys and fireplaces.
- Avoid overloading electrical circuits. Check extension cords and fuse boxes or circuit breakers, making sure there is never a combination of appliances that exceeds 1500 watts on the same circuit.
Do I need to move out while you restore my home after a fire or smoke damage?
Depending on the extent of the fire or smoke damage, this is ultimately your decision. Your insurance company may provide some guidance on this matter. Some things you may want to consider are safety concerns, odours, electricity, and disruption as a result of the equipment, work and noise that may be necessary to complete the restoration process in your home. If vacating your premises during the process, consider forwarding your mail to your temporary residence; stopping your newspaper and other deliveries; notifying your utility company, cable company, etc., of the temporary suspension of services during the restoration process.
What are some safety concerns for smoke or fire damage at our business?
Occupant and worker safety is ServiceMaster Restore’s top priority. During the initial inspection, safety hazards are identified and addressed, including debris removal, air quality, electrical issues, slip and trip hazards, etc. Burnt equipment and electrical devices are separated out for disposal, and questionable electrical equipment or devices are unplugged and tagged for evaluation of safe operation. Electrical power may have to be turned off in the entire facility until evaluation by a licensed electrician is completed.
