Fire, Water, Soot, and Smoke Damage Restoration
Fire causes enough damage to your property and personal possessions on its own, but it is often compounded by damage from soot, smoke, and water.
Smoke and soot penetrate property and building materials that are untouched by flames. These pollutants, along with odor removal, make specialized fire restoration a necessity.
If water was used, flooding and other water damage will have also occurred. Attention to safety, structural integrity, protection of the property and your personal items, and health hazards such as Cat 3 water require an emergency response.

What Should I Do if I Have Fire Damage?
Follow these steps to be safe and to protect yourself and your property:
- Do not stay in the area while the smell of smoke is present. Smoke particles can stay in the air for days after a fire and need to be filtered by mask or HEPA filters.
- Do not attempt to clean items with soot on them. Soot will smear on walls and grind into fabrics if not properly treated. This sometimes causes more damage than the original fire.
- Clean metal surfaces (door knobs, cabinet handles, stainless steel appliances, etc.) as soon as possible to prevent the acids in soot from pitting them.
- Place clean towels or old linens on rugs, upholstery, and carpet traffic areas.
- If electricity is off, empty freezer and refrigerator and prop doors open.
When professional emergency remediation has been completed, further fire restoration services are necessary very quickly to return air filtration and air exhaustion/ventilation to a safe, odor-free state.
