Еven when the fire is out, the damage continues. Much of the material found in furniture and flooring is synthetic and when burned, it can create a variety of complex chemical reactions. After only a few days, these items go from cleanable to unsalvageable.

ServiceMaster Fire Damage Restoration

Our fire damage restoration team knows that very well.

The masters of ServiceMaster Professional Services are experts in understanding the chemical combinations that can effectively clean and salvage belongings. We can even remove soot from at-risk items such as brass, aluminum, chrome, marble, tile, and porcelain as well as fabrics in upholstery and carpets, thus helping to avoid additional expenses.

What to do after smoke and fire damage

 

  • Corrosive byproducts can cause irreversible etching in as few as 72 hours. Call us 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 is off, clean out the refrigerator and leave the doors propped open.
  • Send clothing with heavy smoke damage to our qualified restoration dry cleaner.

What NOT to do after smoke and fire damage

 

  • Do not touch anything. Oil from your hands can permeate upholstery, walls, and woodwork, causing additional damage.
  • Do not wash walls. Incorrect cleaning could compound soot residue.
  • Do not attempt to clean carpets or upholstered furniture.
  • Do not use electrical appliances until having them checked.
  • Do not use ceiling fixtures if the ceiling is wet.

Mitigation is essential in smoke and fire damage

Even when the fire is out, the damage continues. Much of the material found in furniture and flooring is synthetic. When burned, synthetics create a variety of complex chemical reactions.

Your service man Jon Treischel called us before he came to our house to make sure we would be home. He arrived on time and after looking at the flooding in our storage room told us what would be involved. We gave him the OK and he proceeded to remove the wet carpeting and drywall. He removed all the mold and sanitized the space. He left the site clean and dry. He was very nice and answered all the questions that we had. He did a wonderful job and we couldn't have been more pleased. We would definitely recommend your company to our friends. Sincerely, Sandy and Bonnie Resig P.S. Jon is a great employee and you should do everything you can to keep him.
