Fire & Smoke Damage Restoration
Fire not only destroys what it touches, but it also creates soot that adheres to walls, ceilings, floors, and contents. In addition, smoke leaves behind difficult-to-remove stains and odors. Rebuilding part of your home instead of constructing one from the ground up is a very specialized procedure.
Building materials, design, and finishes all have to be matched to the remaining structure. Smoke odor must be neutralized in all remaining building components

From wood furniture to fine china, from electronics to fine art, we know the correct method for each item to remove smoke and odor deposits.

Preventing Fire Damage
Be sure to take the following preventative measures to prevent fire and smoke damage to your home or business:
- Has your electrical wiring been checked by a licensed electrician?
- Make sure appliances, like an iron, have an automatic shut off mechanism.
- Make sure your family or employees know where all fire extinguishers are located and how to use them.
- Make sure your family or employees know how to escape in case of a fire emergency.
- If in a two-story home, provide your family with fire escape ladders and practice how to use them.
Emergency Homeowners Tips
- Open Windows for ventilation, weather permitting.
- Limit foot traffic on affected carpeting.
