ServiceMaster by Restoration Contractors
The idea of a fire and damage to your home can be a scary thought, but it happens to thousands of property owners every year. Even after the flames have been put out, additional damage from the spread of smoke and soot byproducts as well as water from firehoses will be quick to ruin the remaining materials, unless emergency treatment occurs right away.
ServiceMaster by Restoration Contractors provides emergency fire and smoke damage restoration services in the Marion, IN area for both home and business owners. We are available 24/7 and will arrive in a timely manner to return all affected materials to their original conditions.
Fire Damage and Destruction
When a fire occurs, the flames may be extinguished before they can spread too far, but the smoke and soot created in the process can cause additional damage for days afterwards. Even during the fire, the smoke and soot can burn, a process known as chemical burning, pitting, or etching. When these byproducts come into contact with building materials, they will cover them in a thick, oily residue that can ruin them unless they are treated immediately.
The property will also be filled with a potent smoke odor that will require professional hydroxyl and ozone technology in order to be fully removed. Finally, personal contents can become damaged in the process, facing the risk of loss until they are treated with professional cleaning agents.
Soon after calling ServiceMaster by Restoration Contractors, we will arrive right away with all professional products and equipment needed to start the restoration process. We will first conduct an initial inspection in order to develop the best plan for restoring the affected surfaces.
Our technicians proceed to conducting the necessary demolition of permanently damaged materials while removing all other debris from the property. We will then clean the oily, thick residue from the affected surfaces, restoring them to their original conditions. Finally, the entire property will be deodorized, removing that strong smoke odor to restore healthy breathing air. After all necessary repairs have been made, we can work with your insurance company during the claims process so you don’t have to coordinate between both companies.
