In every home or building, there is a constant risk of fire as fires can be caused by cooking, electrical issues, candles, and many other things. Once a fire starts, it can quickly spread, causing very serious damage and putting lives at risk. If a fire breaks out on your property, you need to ensure that the building is quickly evacuated and call the fire department to have it extinguished. Just because the fire is out, that doesn’t mean that the damage is done.
Corrosive byproducts like smoke, soot, and residue remain after the fire is out and these materials will continue to spread and cause additional damage. You need to call for restoration quickly after the fire is out to limit this damage and get your home or building rebuilt.
At RestorationMaster, we provide fire damage restoration services to cleanup and restore affected homes and businesses in Cicero, IL. We can handle any level of fire damage, including structural repairs and the cleaning and restoration of objects and materials damaged by smoke and soot. The sooner you call us after the fire is out, the better chance you have of preventing widespread or permanent damage.

It is important to remember that damage can continue to spread after a fire as corrosive byproducts like smoke and soot are still lingering. In some cases, the damage caused after the fire by the smoke and soot exceeds that caused by the fire itself. This is why you need to call for fire damage restoration as soon as possible after the fire is out. Smoke and soot will cause tarnishing and etching to the objects and materials it affects, and this damage can quickly become permanent. It is important to limit the spread of these corrosive materials and begin cleaning in the affected areas to prevent permanent damage.
Once our technicians arrive, we will stop the spread of smoke and soot and stabilize the structural damage. We will then form a thorough restoration plan to address all of the damage caused by the fire from major structural damage to tarnished surfaces and objects. Our proven cleaning methods will effectively restore materials and objects affected by corrosive byproducts and we will ensure that the structural damage is rebuilt.
If your home is damaged by a fire, you may be unsure if you should involve your insurance. We can help you decide if it is worth filing a claim after we complete our initial assessment of the damage. If the estimate for the restoration is higher than your deductible, then we can help you file your claim. We can also provide direct billing to your insurance company to help cover the claim.
You can help prevent further damage after a fire with the following tips:
- Call our professionals immediately to limit the damage and start the restoration process.
- If the temperature is below 60 degrees, open the windows to air out the smoke and fumes.
- Have your children and pets stay at the home of a neighbor, friend, or family member because the remaining smoke and soot can create a dangerous environment.
- Throw all contaminated food items away and clean out the inside of your refrigerator.
- Take pictures and videos to thoroughly document the damage done to your property. We will also help document the damage with our 3D technology and share this with you and your insurance provider.
Avoiding these actions after a fire will help prevent further damage and keep you safe:
- Do not clean porous surfaces yourself such as wood, drywall, or furnishings because improper cleaning makes the damage worse.
- Do not sit on damaged furniture.
- Do not save any food items that were exposed to the fire and smoke.
- Do not use newspapers to cover damaged areas because the ink can transfer.
- Do not use any electronics or appliances until they are inspected and approved for use.
