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 ProTech Restoration 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 ProTech Restoration 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 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.

Fire & Smoke Damage Restoration Frequently Asked Questions

What steps are involved in removing smoke odor from a home or business?
A fire damage restoration professional like ProTech Restoration will take care of smoke removal and smoke damage restoration. If you decide to take the smoke mitigation issue into your own hands, here are the main steps to follow:
1. Let It Breathe: Allow fresh air to circulate by opening windows and doors to ventilate and reduce lingering smoke odors.
2. Absorb the Smoke: Use odor-absorbing materials like baking soda, activated charcoal, or commercial odor absorbers to help eliminate smoke odors.
3. Repaint Ceilings & Walls: Apply a fresh coat of paint to ceilings and walls to cover and seal in smoke residue, reducing the odor.
4. Details Matter: Light Bulbs and Air Filters: Replace light bulbs and clean or change air filters, as they can trap and emit smoke odors.
5. Wash Windows and Window Coverings: Clean windows and wash window coverings like curtains and blinds to remove smoke residue and odors.
6. Refresh Cabinets and Upholstery: Clean and deodorize cabinets and upholstery to eliminate embedded smoke odors.
7. Cleanse Carpets and Rugs: Thoroughly clean and deodorize carpets and rugs, as they can trap smoke odors deep within their fibers.
8. Floors: Clean and deodorize all types of flooring, such as hardwood, tile, or linoleum, to ensure the complete removal of smoke odors from the premises.

How is water damage addressed after a fire due to firefighting efforts?
A professional restoration company like ProTech Restoration can provide comprehensive restoration services involving both water damage restoration and fire damage restoration. Water damage due to firefighting efforts should be eligible to be covered by your insurance provider when you file a claim.

What is the process for assessing and repairing fire-damaged roofs and ceilings?
The process includes evaluating the extent of the damage, eliminating water, soot, and debris, and restoring the residence to its “pre-loss condition” through construction services. Typical tasks include securing the property, eliminating smoke odors, addressing any hazardous materials (such as asbestos or mold), and reconstructing the home.

Rating 5 5 Star Disaster Restoration Rating

"Had a great experience working with Marshall when we had an emergency leak at my mom’s house. He immediately started working to salvage what we could. I felt like he absolutely understood the urgency, and treated my mom like his own! He and the rest of the team were super easy to work with and answered our (many) questions along the way. They were very transparent about the process which was extremely helpful as this was our first time with this kind of issue in 30+ years of owning the house. We so appreciate ProTech for aiding us during our time of need."

"My experience with ProTech was wonderful from the first visit thru the last. Ben did a great job of evaluating the work that needed to be done and explaining everything to me. Frank and Sergio were great to work with because they were pleasant AND they were so very careful about everything they did. All in all, I give the ProTech team an A+!"

"I had a pipe burst and subsequent leakage into my basement. At first I thought that we maybe stopped it in time since we could not see obvious damage but Marshall at ProTech said it would be a good idea to check it out anyway and came out within a couple of days. I’m so glad he did since there was more damage than we anticipated. Marshall explained the damage thoroughly using his imaging techniques and provided a quote within the day. Pricing was good and our insurance accepted the proposal immediately. The ProTech team was able to do the water damage mitigation about a week after the incident and on a Saturday no less. Everything was done super quickly and professionally. While I do not want to deal with any more water damage, the repairs using ProTech were painless. I would recommend this company and especially Marshall to anyone in the same situation."
