Smoke & Fire Restoration, Charlotte, NC

First Restoration America

(980) 888-8456

Experiencing a fire within a residential or commercial space is not only a harrowing event but also leads to layers of complex damage that can escalate even after the fire has ceased. Amidst the chaos of a fire incident, your immediate concern is to ensure the safety of all occupants and completely extinguish the flames. Once the emergency services have departed, it becomes crucial to shift focus to the remediation process to prevent any further degradation of your property.

Once a fire has been quelled, it leaves behind a trail of smoke, soot, and acidic substances as a result of combusted synthetic materials. These residual substances invariably continue to spread through space, thereby exacerbating what was initially damaged by the fire itself. Often, the ensuing damage can surpass the initial destruction.

First Restoration America provides fire damage remediation services in Charlotte, NC, offering a robust response to mitigate damage caused by fire, smoke, and acidic byproducts. Our team includes seasoned IICRC-certified professionals ready to tackle extensive fire damage in both domestic and business settings.

Fire and Smoke Damage Impact

Flames inflict immediate harm, scorching or completely annihilating items and building materials in their wake. The combustion of these materials creates smoke, soot, and acidic byproducts that persist long after the fire is extinguished. Smoke is notorious for spreading throughout the property, infiltrating porous substances, and leaving a lasting odor. Without swift intervention, the soot and acidic residues will leave a permanent mark on the surfaces and materials affected.

At First Restoration America, we use state-of-the-art equipment and methods to address severe fire damage as well as restore materials afflicted by soot and acidic byproducts. Our superior cleaning products can eradicate blemishes and etching from surfaces such as chrome, porcelain, ceramic, aluminum, stainless steel, and a diversity of other commonly used materials.

Smoke Removal and Odor Neutralizing

Smoke odors lingering after a fire incident can become ingrained within your home or commercial structure. This odor pervades the furthest corners and embeds itself deep into porous materials, resulting in a stubborn odor that is not easily eradicated through simple home remedies. Our technicians deploy proprietary deodorization techniques to cleanse affected materials and airspaces of smoke odors. Although smoke mitigation adds to the overall restoration timeline, it is crucial to restore your property to a fresher state.

Inventory of Tools for Fire & Smoke Restoration

Below is a catalog of tools that we use to guarantee a detailed and efficient restoration:

  • Air Scrubbers: Our air scrubbers are instrumental in filtering out smoke particles and odors, thus improving indoor air quality.
  • HEPA Vacuums: The high-efficiency particulate air filters within our HEPA vacuums are designed to entrap micro-sized particles down to 0.3 microns, including those from smoke and other pollutants, ensuring thorough cleanup of soot debris.
  • Ozone Machines: We utilize ozone machines to counteract smoke odors, generating ozone which chemically interacts with and neutralizes odor molecules.
  • Thermal Foggers: By diffusing deodorizing agents in a vaporized state, our thermal foggers can permeate porous materials and combat smoke odors.
  • Thermal Imaging Cameras: These cameras aid in revealing concealed areas of moisture or heat damage, enabling complete investigative assessment.
  • Pressure Washers: Our team utilizes pressure washers to meticulously clean fire-affected external areas, including siding, brickwork, and pavements, aiming to return them to their original state post-fire.

Our team enforces strict health and safety standards by wearing personal protective equipment (PPE)—gloves, masks, and specialized attire—during the entire cleaning procedure.

Rating 5 5 Star Disaster Restoration Rating

"I’m thrilled with the work done by First Restoration. The crew was punctual, professional, clean, and the project started and ended when they said it would! The price for my remodel was very competitive, and there were no “surprises” along the way. Within 2 days of the project being completed, I received a call from the owner of the company asking if I needed anything else, and if I was satisfied. I appreciated the personal touch and desire to ensure I was satisfied with their work product. 5 stars!"

"First restoration was great. I had a leak from an upstairs washer. Keith answered my call right away. Employees arrived a few hours after my call and set up the fans and dehumidifier. First restoration was great and would strongly recommend them in the future."
