ServiceMaster of the Shore Area is a trusted name in this arena, and we provide these services to home and business owners in and around Middletown, NJ.
Problems Caused by Fires
There are obviously a lot of issues that can result from a fire on your property. That being said, not many people realize that the smoke, soot, and other byproducts resulting from the blaze can cause just as much damage. These corrosive elements can cause etching, discoloration, and deterioration in materials throughout your property. Here at ServiceMaster of the Shore Area, we understand the manner in which this occurs, and do everything possible to limit the harmful effects.
In addition to the spread of soot and smoke, odors are notorious for navigating their way throughout your property. Porous materials will soak up these smells, which can result in permanent damage. In addition to our restoration and sanitization services, we will fully deodorize affected areas and belongings.
