Smoke Removal In Schaumburg, IL

(847) 558-7765

The damage caused by a fire’s flames is obvious, but what’s less obvious is the damage that the fire’s byproducts of smoke and soot can cause. These byproducts don’t become as obvious until the fire has been extinguished. When there’s a fire, the high temperature leads to a chemical smoke detector of fire alarm in actionreaction with the burned materials that then leads to the creation of corrosive, toxic residue, smoke, and soot.

Once the fire is out, these substances spread throughout the property, settling into different materials and objects. However, it doesn’t take a fire for these substances to be spread throughout a property. Smoke and soot can damage your home as a result of candles, cooking, and fireplace use.

At ProTech Restoration, we provide smoke and odor removal services to Schaumburg, IL, and the surrounding areas. With our services, we will eliminate smoke odors and clean up the resulting damage. Our technicians have the necessary equipment and cleaning supplies to properly clean and restore items and building materials harmed by smoke and soot. Additionally, our technicians have all undergone a thorough background check, so you can trust them to be in your home, providing quality restoration services.

Smoke Damage

Smoke and soot are sometimes more damaging than the actual fire because of their ability to spread and harm areas that were unaffected by the fire itself. Smoke and soot are corrosive, so they are damaging to a lot of objects and materials. They can cause discoloration and etching among other effects.

This damage will likely become permanent if the damaged materials aren’t cleaned within 72 hours of the initial damage, which makes it essential for cleaning to be done immediately.

We are prepared to conduct smoke and soot cleaning and restoration on practically any damaged objects and building materials. To do our work, we utilize specialized chemical cleaners that eliminate the damage that smoke and soot can cause, safely restoring the objects to their original condition.

Odor Removal

While soot and residue are concerning aftereffects of a fire, smoke odor also has a damaging effect to be concerned about. Smoke odors are absorbed by building materials and objects, so the smell lingers throughout your property. This makes it tough for the smoke odors to be removed using do-it-yourself techniques.

We extract smoke odors from building materials and other affected objects by using specialized deodorization techniques. Once the odor has been eliminated, we make sure your property remains free of odors.

It can be tough to decide whether to involve your insurance in these situations, but we will advise you on whether to involve your insurance provider or not. In the event that you are filing a claim for the damage, we will directly bill your insurance company. We will also help keep out of pocket costs low with our price match guarantee that applies to non-covered claims.  We will match or beat estimates from other professionals that adhere to the IICRC’s standard of care.

Available 24/7

When smoke and/or soot have caused damage to your property, you should always get professional help as soon as possible. No matter what the smoke and soot are from, ProTech Restoration can help. Call us at (847) 558-7765 for the smoke and odor removal services we provide in Schaumburg, IL.

"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."
