Each smoke and odor remediation project is a little different from another and requires a plan of action revised to its specific needs. We begin with a general set of restoration guidelines that allows us to guarantee quality service to anyone.
We will analyze the circumstances of your structure and possessions then determine what needs to be done to fix all the problems or potential hazards on your premises. The general plan is amended to fit the circumstances and granular needs of your structure and possessions. Your project will begin with a select series of remediation steps.
Smoke Damage Restoration
Fire is the result of a chemical reaction between the oxygen in the atmosphere and combustible fuel – structural wood, carpet, furniture. Every source of fuel has its own unique ignition temperature. When that level of heat is breached, the fuel will catch fire and volatile gases are released in the form of smoke. The gases from a small contained fire or a large structural fire inside a residence or other structure will permeate the air and become embedded in the walls, ceiling and contents that survive the blaze.
While heat is the most noticeable and destructive product of a fire, smoke and the residue it leaves behind can have its own corrosive elements and should be remediated by experienced professionals. If left untreated it can erode surfaces, electronics, fabrics, and building materials, causing further damage to your property.
Step 1: Inspection and Damage Assessment
First, we have to assess the affected area for specific detail: what kind of residual gases are embedded in the surfaces of the premises. After the affected areas and its contents have been inspected, our team will draw up their plans for restoration. You you will be provided with a reasonable estimate before we proceed with the project.
Even before we begin, our people will take photographs of the affected areas and items and keep notes, detailing our procedures needed to remediate your property and its contents and get rid of the damaging soot and smoke. All of the information will serve as documentation to be given to your insurance provider.
Step 2: Salvaging of Contents and Demolition/Removal of Debris
Although you may have the contents of your property insured, all the furnishings, fixtures, and appliances usually represent more than a simple dollar value. We will do all that can feasibly be done to restore your assets and personal possessions.
For a business, most items are an integral part of the productivity of a company, and replacing needed items will take time. In a home, there are many things that have emotional value and some are irreplaceable – heirlooms, family photos, wedding china. Furniture, appliances, fixtures and any other possession that can be remediated from the embedded soot and smoke, cleaned, and restored to its former use will be identified and set aside.
Anything that is unsalvageable will be set aside then transported later for appropriate disposal or destruction.
Step 3: Cleaning of Smoke and Soot from All Surfaces
Using powerful regulation-approved equipment and detergents developed to dissolve the residue of a fire, all surfaces in the affected area is thoroughly cleaned and sanitized to ensure a healthy environment before anyone returns to re-occupy the property. Then, we use a HEPA vacuuming to clean air conditioning and heating units, removing the soot and smoke residue.
Finally, we clean any salvageable appliances, fixtures, carpets, floors and other surviving contents and restore them to effective use. Our primary goal is to return you to a healthy environment at least equal to what you had before the fire.
Step 4: Support the Insurance Claims Process
When the remediation is complete, the final step will be helping you settle the insurance claim. Not a pleasant experience with all the time and paperwork required. Your insurance company will be provided with all of our photos and documentation pertaining to your restoration project. We will work directly with your insurance provider to mitigate a smoother process and help you secure a fair reimbursement for your losses, according to the terms of your policy.
Other fire-related services you might need
Restoring the smoke and soot, and clearing the air of that pervasive odor are not the only fire-related services we offer. Our teams can also assist with reconstruction, water damage, and more. Here is a short-list of services that we can provide if you need them:

- Mechanical, Electrical, Plumbing – After a fire it may be necessary to replaced damaged wiring, pipes, and other essential components.
