Fire & Smoke

Fires can be devastating. An effective emergency response that quickly stabilizes the facility will ensure your ability to recover as much property as possible. The acidic soot and smoke damage that is often produced in fires accelerates the deterioration and corrosion of building components and vital assets. To compound the problem, fires are most frequently extinguished with dry chemicals or water. The toxic smoke odor left behind must be neutralized and deodorized.

The fire damage restoration process includes mitigating damage, providing smoke damage cleanup, and completing water restoration as quickly as possible after the damage first occurs. Beyond the visible structural damage, contents inside the structure must be evaluated for recovery based on several factors including:


It is important to calculate the replacement cost vs. restoration cost before work begins

Secondary effects

Smoke and heat can be as devastating to property as the fire itself


Both loss of use and loss of value must be evaluated to ensure all costs are taken into account

Future usability

Property and the building itself should be evaluated for possible decreased life expectancy
