REsponding immediately after a fire
Property fires produce a lot of ash and soot. If this isn't addressed quickly, it will eat away anything it rests on.
Corrosive acids left behind by fire and smoke damage can cause further damage to a home or business.
To protect your family and contents, it's essential that you respond quickly by contacting a fire and smoke damage restoration company
Ash contributes to an unpleasant odor and discoloration which can nestle deep into porous materials.
Soot is an oil-based substance that is highly acidic and is incredibly stubborn and difficult to safely remove.
There are many ways you can clean the damage from smoke, but if you want to eliminate the scent of smoke, get a professional to do the job.
Even if the fire was small, the smell can linger for years after.

Mold spores easily spread through the air where they can cause a wide range of health-related issues.

Fire Damage Restoration FAQ's
What is smoke damage?
Smoke is a by-product of combustion, such as fire. Smoke can be difficult to describe; it has a bad smell and leaves black stains on surfaces. Smoke damage can begin almost immediately after the flames are extinguished. The longer you wait to clean up your home or office after a smoke or fire hazard, the more damage you will have to deal with.
Smoke can sink into living surfaces, including carpets and drapes, as well as furniture and other belongings. Smoke contamination becomes even worse if the affected area is exposed to moisture from firefighting efforts or sprinkler systems discharge. In some cases, smoke damage becomes apparent only after a home has been cleaned.
What are the different types of fires?
There are four classifications for structure or building fires: 1) ordinary combustibles, 2) energized electrical equipment, 3) special hazard-and 4) high-hazard materials. Below is an explanation of these categories.
What is black smoke?
Black smoke is a result of the materials that are burning. Once these materials have been consumed, the smoke will dissipate into the air. Black smoke is merely just another by-product of fire.
What are some common fire indicators?
Smoke can be an indicator of fire. When smoke is present, it may not be possible to see the actual flames of the fire. However, seeing smoke during or after a fire can indicate that some type of burning has taken place at some point. Smoke also may contain deposits of soot and dust.
If the fire was big enough and hot enough, it may be possible to “see” residual heat given off by smoldering or burning materials. This can appear as a dull red glow; however, it often will not be seen until several hours after the conclusion of the fire because fires give off visible light energy (red or orange colors) but do not give off visible heat, or infrared energy (red glow) until air temperatures begin to rise.
Fire damage can cause property structural damage that will need to be repaired by professionals, such as water damage and smoke damage restoration. There may also be burn marks left behind on the building structure itself. These are all common things that happen during a fire incident.
How do you determine the cause of the fire?
The source of the fire can be difficult, if not impossible, to determine after an event has occurred. The important thing is to act quickly and decisively to protect your property and avoid further damage or injury. If you discover that there was no working smoke alarm in your home, you should install a smoke alarm outside every bedroom and on every level of your home.
How do I protect my belongings from becoming damaged?
Some materials can be saved if caught in time. However, the faster you act the better chance you have at saving some of your valued possessions. It is important to get these items out of harm’s way as soon as possible.
If you determine that there is a fire, and you can safely do so, close doors behind you as you leave the building to slow the spread of the fire; open windows on upper floors for ventilation if it is safe to do so but not directly into flames; and pull down window shades, drapes and blinds to prevent them from igniting.
Do I need to hire professional fire mitigation and restoration service?
If there is any damage done to the property as a result of your actions, it could complicate the situation even more. You may also do more harm than good to the structure. In these types of situations, it is always best to call a professional contractor who can help you to resolve your issue in a safe and timely manner.
Where should I look for smoke damage?
If there has been a fire, or if water was used to extinguish the fire, look for signs of soot. Soot is present in most fires and it can be dark or black in color. It may also appear as dusty deposits. This will usually be found on the ceilings, walls, floors, and items of furniture.
Smoke damage is caused by-products that are present when materials are burned. These products often contain hazardous chemicals that are not visible to the naked eye. If these chemicals are exposed to the environment for a long enough period of time, they can harm those exposed. This is why professional cleaning services are necessary after any fire damage has occurred.
How do I prevent further damage?
If your business or home was recently damaged by fire (or you suspect that it may have been damaged by fire), the first thing you should do is call a professional service to inspect and assess the damage. The company will then provide you with your options for repairing and restoring what has been lost or damaged.
How can I prevent future fires?
The best way to avoid any type of fire damage to your home is prevention: have a fire extinguisher on hand, educate your family about the dangers of an open flame and have working smoke alarms installed in every room of your home.
How can I determine if a professional is legitimate?
It is important to research the company you plan on hiring before you let them in your home. Ask for references from previous customers. It is also a good idea to check with your state licensing office to make sure the company you are considering hiring is properly licensed and insured.
