Fire Damage Repair and Cleanup

Fires cause many types of damage, including charring, discoloration, and etching; much of this damage will continue to get worse or become permanent in the aftermath of the fire.  After the fire is extinguished, soot from the smoke as well as corrosive byproducts that form when synthetic materials are burnt will continue to spread and settle.

These materials can affect walls, furniture, carpeting, and other household objects with etching and discoloration; therefore, failure to restore the affected materials right away can result in permanent damage.

However, the technicians NuEra Restoration and Remodeling in Elk Grove Village, IL are highly trained to deal with fire, smoke, and soot damage in any scenario and use advanced chemical cleaners to remove tarnishing and etching from vulnerable household surfaces and objects.

Smoke and Odor Mitigation

In a variety of property fires, the soot, smoke, and corrosive byproducts cause more damage than the fire itself.  In addition to the etching and discoloration from soot, smoke can also leave behind a foul odor that can linger and become absorbed by the porous building materials.

Our technicians are equipped to completely remove smoke odor from the air space and affected materials, using advanced methods and technology.  Ultimately, the presence of an unpleasant odor in your home after a fire can be very frustrating, making it important to ensure that this odor is removed.

Fire Damage Restoration – What to Do

  • Call NuEra Restoration and Remodeling in Elk Grove Village, IL as soon as you notice fire or smoke damage in your home or building. This is to prevent secondary or even permanent damage to your building materials and content.
  • Open drawers, cabinets, and closets to increase air circulation throughout the property.
  • Tape two layers of damp cheesecloth over the supply and return registers to prevent additional soot from settling into the materials.
  • As long as the refrigerator is off, clean it out of any food that was present during the fire.
  • Throw away any food that was exposed to the fire.
  • Send any clothing that is needed for immediate use to a professional restoration dry cleaner.
  • Change the HVAC filter.
  • Wipe off only materials made of porcelain, Formica, chrome, and aluminum of any soot to prevent etching.
  • Wipe off any plants leaves that contain soot.

Fire Damage Restoration – What to Avoid

  • Do not touch anything without gloves. The oil from human hands can cause secondary damage to the affected materials and content.

  • Do not use any electrical appliance that has been damaged by the fire.
  • Do not turn on the ceiling fan if the ceiling is wet or damp.

Helpful Fire Damage Information

The Effects of Smoke and Soot Damage to a Home

After a disaster, the condition of your home can change dramatically, calling for extensive restoration work due to potential hazards and instability. This is a common occurrence in the event of a fire damaging your home.

What is Soot and Why Is it Dangerous?

While the mentioned occupations have higher exposure to soot, typical homeowners may also encounter this toxic element. Soot is commonly present in areas where humans live, including household fireplaces, basement furnaces, and engine exhaust. The small size of soot particles increases the likelihood of health hazards.

Can Baking Soda Be Used to Put Out Fires?

Grease fires have the potential to be highly dangerous as they can result in both personal injury and property damage. These stains are commonly caused by oil, grease, or fat on the stovetop, or by deep-fat fryers becoming excessively hot. The fires are very hot and have the potential to spread rapidly. Here are the steps to follow if you encounter a grease fire.

"Professionalism, Punctuality, Quality, Responsiveness, Value Clint and his team were AWESOME!!! He was very considerate of my time and space. I was very frustrated when he arrived & when he left I felt happy and relieved that my issue was resolved! He made sure to clean everything with non-toxic chemicals so that my kids would be safe, he explained everything he was doing and executed it perfectly. I had a leak in my ceiling and sewage water everywhere. He put in the time and hard work to disinfect, clean, and dry everything throughly. He was quick, efficient, and respectful! I would definitely recommend his services to anyone who has an issue in their space. Thank you Clint."

"Our technician Alec came in and re-padded the carpet that had been torn up last week due to water damage. He was so friendly and talkative, and worked very quickly to get the job done! In and out within 30 minutes so that I could get on with my day. Would definitely recommend. Thanks Alec!"

"After our apartment flooded on Chirstmas Eve, we were worried about dry wall repairs and patches, and disgusted by the stench. NuEra handled our dry wall replacement and patching and our carpets. We didn't get a business card from the man who worked on our walls and ceilings, but he did so without his partner that day. We are so grateful! After the drywall repairs, our carpets were cleaned so thoroughly and efficiently. Alex treated the carpet and scrubbed it out well before applying the deodorizer and scrubbing that in. He even got out a bright yellow stain from the water that had leaked in. It's such a relief to no longer live in a stinky apartment! Alex and Nick were wonderful! Thank you so much!"
