Damage from Smoke and Soot
Not many people fully understand the harm that smoke and soot can cause when they are left to linger on your property. During their origination, smoke and soot often combine with corrosive and acidic elements that develop when certain materials are burned. As a result, your air spaces are filled with potentially damaging substances that can travel throughout your building. When they settle on vulnerable surfaces, discoloration and etching are likely while permanent damage can occur in as little as 72 hours. For this reason, we treat events involving smoke and soot as emergencies, and provide 24/7 availability.
When you choose to work with our talented technicians, you can expect superb results. At RestorationMaster, our specialists are IICRC certified, and must undergo extensive training before working with clients. Additionally, as a firm, we have a wealth of experience when it comes to responding to fires and similarly devastating scenarios. We truly give your building and belongings the best chance of being fully recovered, regardless of their condition.
No matter the scale of the damage on your property, we will respond swiftly to perform our restoration services. We utilize appropriate cleaning solutions to treat affected materials and surfaces, and then leverage our restoration expertise to repair them. Our goal is to return your property to its original condition.
When faced with smoke and soot damage, it may be difficult to tell for sure if you should file an insurance claim. Our technicians will thoroughly assess the damage and advise you on the best course of action to take with your insurance. If a claim is filed, we can bill your insurance carrier directly for the claim with our direct billing services.
Odor Removal Services
The foul odors that smoke can cause are more commonly recognized than the etching and discoloration it can lead to. We eliminate these unpleasant odors through our deodorization services. Our deodorization methods attack odors at their source and we also implement procedures that prevent the smell from returning in the future. This typically involves the treatment and sealing of porous materials (such as wood, fabrics, drywall, etc.) as well as cleaning of the air space.
RestorationMaster has received several awards commending our dedication to our clients and the local community including the Better Business Bureau’s Prestigious Torch Award, the Annual Award for Business Excellence (AABE) from the Daily Herald, and the Excellence in Leadership Award from the Dwyer Group. We have also helped with many large local projects including helping a neighboring RestorationMaster franchise after a large fire caused damage to businesses and apartments in Utica, IL. With over 100 years of combined experience, our technicians are ready to handle any type of disaster.
