Few disasters can give homeowners nightmares like a fire. The flames instantly engulf anything in its path and once they are extinguished, the soot and corrosive byproducts left over will spread even more damage. In just 72 hours, these byproducts can leave the affected furnishings and structures in your home permanently damaged. RestorationMaster provides fire and smoke damage restoration for homes and businesses in Jacksonville, FL. We will contain the spread of corrosive materials to limit the damage and repair or restore the damaged materials.
Most homes and buildings are filled with synthetic materials which not only burn up quickly, but also release corrosive byproducts when burned that cause additional damage. This is why it is so important to begin the restoration once the fire is out. These corrosive byproducts, as well as soot from the smoke, continue to settle after the fire is extinguished and the tarnishing and etching they cause can quickly become permanent. Our technicians use advanced equipment and powerful chemical cleaning products to remove tarnishing and etching from aluminum, marble, brass, chrome, tile, porcelain, carpeting, upholstery, and other household surfaces.

Smoke Damage Restoration
Smoke is perhaps the most damaging aspect of a fire because it spreads to areas that were unaffected by the flames and the soot can continue to damage surfaces and materials after the fire is out. Soot is not the only byproduct of smoke that can cause damage, smoke also leaves behind an oily residue that can affect your walls, ceilings, and furnishings. If either soot damage or damage from smoke residue is not cleaned or restore quickly enough, the affected materials will become permanently damaged. We can provide effective smoke damage restoration that includes removing soot and residue from affected surfaces and materials with powerful cleaning products.
The other major issue caused by smoke is the odor. Porous building materials absorb smoke odors which makes it extremely difficult to remove from your home. RestorationMaster can remove smoke odors from affected materials and the air space using advanced deodorization equipment and techniques.
A fire in a home or office seriously threatens the safety of those within. When a fire occurs, you must first make sure everyone has been evacuated safely. Once you can confirm the safety of those involved, you must immediately turn your attention to the restoration.
