Fire and Smoke Damage Restoration in Crystal Lake, IL
Fires affect thousands of homes and buildings per year, and they can result in extensive damage. What makes fires so dangerous is that they can happen at any time and immediately put your life and your home in danger. It is important to have the fire put out right away, but the damage will not stop. Fires create smoke, soot, and other corrosive byproducts that can continue to damage your property and belongings after a fire. If your home or building is damaged by fire and smoke, you need to start the restoration as soon as possible to repair structural damage and save content such as carpeting, furniture, clothing, and others from permanent damage.
Nu-Gen Cleaning & Restoration provides fire and smoke damage restoration services to help affected homes and businesses in Crystal Lake, IL. Our technicians can handle every step of the fire damage restoration process including structural repairs, content restoration, and the removal of soot and smoke odors. It is best to start the fire damage restoration process immediately after the fire is out to limit the damage and save time and money on the restoration.
Damage Caused by Fire and Smoke
When a fire occurs, it has the potential to cause widespread damage to your home or building and all of the furnishings and content within. The damage starts with the flames as they burn through building materials and other objects. The flames often cause severe structural damage, and the burning of materials creates smoke and soot.
Smoke Damage Restoration
Smoke, soot, and other corrosive byproducts that remain after the fire is out usually cause more damage than the fire itself. This is because smoke and soot will continue to spread throughout the property, including areas the fire did not reach. Soot and residue will settle on surfaces and objects, causing etching and tarnishing that can become permanent if the materials are not properly cleaned fast enough. Smoke also leaves behind odors that are difficult to eliminate because the odor particles get absorbed by porous building materials and furnishings.
There doesn’t have to be a fire for there to be smoke damage. Incidents such as burning something on the stove can cause enough smoke in your home to cause damage. Our professionals at Nu-Gen Cleaning & Restoration can effectively restore damage caused by smoke and soot as well as structural damage caused by a fire.
