Factors such as fire severity, water damage, and structural repairs also affect the remediation timeline. We’ll work hard to complete the job in a timely manner while ensuring the highest quality results.

Will my belongings be salvageable after a fire?

We understand your personal belongings have value. Our fire restoration experts are trained in contents restoration and will assess their condition to determine the best course of action.

We will work closely with your insurance company to document the loss and assist in the claims process, ensuring you receive fair compensation for your damaged belongings.

Can you remove the smoke smell from my property?

We are experts in eliminating smoke odors and restoring a fresh, clean scent to your property.

Our advanced procedures, including thermal fogging, ozone treatment, and air scrubbers, will neutralize and eliminate smoke effectively. 

Can I attempt to clean up fire and smoke damage on my own?

This streamlined approach ensures efficient communication, seamless coordination, and timely completion.

What safety considerations follow smoke and fire damage?

Even after the fire has been extinguished, smoke and soot can still pose a danger to your health. Wearing protective gear such as gloves, a face mask, and safety glasses is crucial when entering a fire-damaged property. 

In addition, fire and smoke damage can weaken the structural integrity of a building, so it’s essential to have a professional conduct an inspection before entering to avoid potential collapse.
