Hydroforce Cleaning and Restoration

Fire and Smoke Damage
When fires spread, there are two levels of damage incurred by the building materials and contents. The flames will be the first to burn all organic and synthetic materials and furnishings, resulting in charred surfaces and permanent damage. This can also put the structural integrity of the home or building at risk.
The second level of damage includes the smoke and soot residue that’s left behind from the extinguished flames. As smoke can remain within homes or buildings days after the fire was extinguished, all remaining surfaces are at risk for becoming permanently damaged by the oily smoke and soot residue. As it settles on these materials, it causes etching and tarnishing that can compromise the structural makeup of the building material or item, leading to permanent damage.
Fires also create strong smoke odors that spread throughout the property. Odor particles are absorbed within porous materials, furnishings, and air spaces and the only way to have them removed is with advanced technology.
