With our years of fire damage restoration experience, we know that quick fire damage cleanup can minimize your losses after the fire gets extinguished.
Fire residue or smoke damage is the collection of airborne solid and liquid particulates and gases. After the fire, the gases disperse but the smoke solids and liquids remain on exposed surfaces. These deposits often emit noxious odors which persist long after the fire is out.
Even when the fire is out, the damage continues. Much of the material found in furniture and flooring is synthetic and when burned, it can start a variety of complex chemical reactions. After only a few days, structure and household items can go from cleanable to unsalvageable. The fire damage restoration professionals at ServiceMaster DAK are experts in understanding the chemical combinations that effectively clean and salvage your home and personal property. Fire cleanup technicians remove damaging soot from at-risk items such as brass, aluminum, chrome, marble, tile, and porcelain as well as upholstery and carpet.

Useful tips if you’ve had a fire in your home or business:
– Don’t use soot damaged furniture and try not to walk on the soot damaged carpet. This will keep the soot from becoming embedded.
– If your power has been shut off and you must stay away from your home, empty the refrigerator and freezer leaving the doors open.
– Don’t attempt to wash soot covered walls or other hard surfaces as this may permanently set the soot.
– Don’t use electrical appliances, lights or ceiling fans that may have become wet.
