Fire and Smoke Damage Restoration Services for St. Cloud, MN
A fire is perhaps the most destructive disaster that can occur in a home or building as it can cause a significant amount of damage virtually without warning. After the fire is extinguished, the damage can get worse because synthetic materials release chemical emissions when burned and soot and other corrosive byproducts will continue to spread and cause further damage. If the damage is not restored soon enough after the fire has been put out, it can become permanent.
ServiceMaster Professional Services provides smoke and fire damage restoration services to help homes and businesses in St. Cloud, MN recover from a fire. Our technicians are trained and experienced to clean and restore fire damage in residential and commercial settings and we can also remove soot damage from delicate household surfaces such as chrome, brass, marble, tile, aluminum, porcelain, carpeting, and upholstery.
What to Do After a Fire
- Call SVMPS immediately for fire and smoke damage restoration services because corrosive byproducts and soot can spread damage after the fire is extinguished.
- Open your doors and windows to air out your home if the temperature is above 60 degrees.
- Clean chrome, Formica, aluminum, and porcelain surfaces to help prevent tarnishing.
- Furnaces that use forced hot air should have their air filters replaced.
- Tape damp cheesecloths over the return and supply registers in your home to filter soot from the air.
