Smoke and corrosive byproducts from burnt synthetic materials can also cause serious damage to your property. Because smoke settles and spreads quickly, prompt attention from our trained professionals is required to limit its spread and prevent permanent tarnishing and etching to the affected surfaces and materials.  We can effectively remove the effects of smoke and corrosive byproducts from a range of common household surfaces using powerful chemical cleaners.

However, ProTech Restoration has superior technology that allows us to deodorize the entire area, including the air space and affected materials. We also have the most efficient methods of deodorization, eliminating all odors at the source. If you experience a fire in the Mt.

Fire Damage Helpful Information

The Effects of Smoke and Soot Damage to a Home

Following a disaster, the condition of your home may undergo significant changes, warranting extensive restoration work due to potential hazards and instability. This is a typical event that may occur if a fire damages your home.

What is Soot and Why Is it Dangerous?

Although certain occupations have a higher risk of exposure to soot, homeowners may also come into contact with this toxic element. Soot can be found in various areas where humans reside, including household fireplaces, basement furnaces, and engine exhaust. The small size of soot particles increases the potential for health hazards.

Can Baking Soda Be Used to Put Out Fires?

Grease fires can be dangerous as they have the potential to cause personal injury and property damage. These stains are typically caused by oil, grease, or fat on the stovetop, or by deep-fat fryers becoming extremely hot. The fires are intense and have the potential to spread quickly. These are the steps to follow should you come across a grease fire.

Fire & Smoke Damage Restoration Frequently Asked Questions

What steps are involved in removing smoke odor from a home or business?
A fire damage restoration professional like ProTech Restoration will take care of smoke removal and smoke damage restoration. If you decide to take the smoke mitigation issue into your own hands, here are the main steps to follow:
1. Let It Breathe: Allow fresh air to circulate by opening windows and doors to ventilate and reduce lingering smoke odors.
2. Absorb the Smoke: Use odor-absorbing materials like baking soda, activated charcoal, or commercial odor absorbers to help eliminate smoke odors.
3. Repaint Ceilings & Walls: Apply a fresh coat of paint to ceilings and walls to cover and seal in smoke residue, reducing the odor.
4. Details Matter: Light Bulbs and Air Filters: Replace light bulbs and clean or change air filters, as they can trap and emit smoke odors.
5. Wash Windows and Window Coverings: Clean windows and wash window coverings like curtains and blinds to remove smoke residue and odors.
6. Refresh Cabinets and Upholstery: Clean and deodorize cabinets and upholstery to eliminate embedded smoke odors.
7. Cleanse Carpets and Rugs: Thoroughly clean and deodorize carpets and rugs, as they can trap smoke odors deep within their fibers.
8. Floors: Clean and deodorize all types of flooring, such as hardwood, tile, or linoleum, to ensure the complete removal of smoke odors from the premises.

How is water damage addressed after a fire due to firefighting efforts?
A professional restoration company like ProTech Restoration can provide comprehensive restoration services involving both water damage restoration and fire damage restoration. Water damage due to firefighting efforts should be eligible to be covered by your insurance provider when you file a claim.

What is the process for assessing and repairing fire-damaged roofs and ceilings?
The process includes evaluating the extent of the damage, eliminating water, soot, and debris, and restoring the residence to its “pre-loss condition” through construction services. Typical tasks include securing the property, eliminating smoke odors, addressing any hazardous materials (such as asbestos or mold), and reconstructing the home.

Rating 5 5 Star Disaster Restoration Rating

"Had a great experience working with Marshall when we had an emergency leak at my mom’s house. He immediately started working to salvage what we could. I felt like he absolutely understood the urgency, and treated my mom like his own! He and the rest of the team were super easy to work with and answered our (many) questions along the way. They were very transparent about the process which was extremely helpful as this was our first time with this kind of issue in 30+ years of owning the house. We so appreciate ProTech for aiding us during our time of need."

"My experience with ProTech was wonderful from the first visit thru the last. Ben did a great job of evaluating the work that needed to be done and explaining everything to me. Frank and Sergio were great to work with because they were pleasant AND they were so very careful about everything they did. All in all, I give the ProTech team an A+!"

"I had a pipe burst and subsequent leakage into my basement. At first I thought that we maybe stopped it in time since we could not see obvious damage but Marshall at ProTech said it would be a good idea to check it out anyway and came out within a couple of days. I’m so glad he did since there was more damage than we anticipated. Marshall explained the damage thoroughly using his imaging techniques and provided a quote within the day. Pricing was good and our insurance accepted the proposal immediately. The ProTech team was able to do the water damage mitigation about a week after the incident and on a Saturday no less. Everything was done super quickly and professionally. While I do not want to deal with any more water damage, the repairs using ProTech were painless. I would recommend this company and especially Marshall to anyone in the same situation."
