When a fire erupts, your top priority is to evacuate safely from the building. Once you have ensured everyone’s safety, you must quickly change your focus to the restoration. What most people don’t realize is that the most severe damage is often caused by the soot and smoke that continues to linger once the firefighters have extinguished the fire.
The soot along with corrosive byproducts from burnt synthetic materials cause etching and tarnishing to surfaces and furnishings that will become permanent without prompt treatment.

Effects of Smoke and Soot Damage
After the fire is extinguished, soot from the smoke and corrosive byproducts produced by burnt synthetic materials are still in an active state and they can affect even those areas that have been untouched by the fire itself. These materials can cause tarnishing and etching to various surfaces and objects and the damage can become permanent within 72 hours.

This quick and efficient service goes a long way in saving your belongings from experiencing permanent damaged.
Smoke Damage Cleanup
It’s not always easy to spot the damage caused by smoke, and the lingering odor it leaves behind isn’t easy to eliminate. Materials such as upholstery, carpeting, drywall, and wood tend to absorb these odors due to their porosity, and only professional services can remove smoke odor effectively.
We use state-of-the-art equipment and the latest techniques including ozone treatments and hydroxyl technology to ensure that every trace of the smoke odor is entirely removed from the affected materials and indoor spaces. We also take appropriate steps to ensure that your property stays odor free, even after the smoke damage restoration work has been completed.

We provide emergency smoke damage restoration services and are available 24/7. Call ServiceMaster Restoration Services at (402) 973-3858 for emergency assistance.
