The effects and aftermath of a fire can truly be a depressing and overwhelming sight, especially when realizing that precious memories have been destroyed. In addition, re-entering the property is a threat to personal safety as lingering soot particles can trigger severe respiratory problems and allergies. However, finding these materials covered in soot and smoke doesn’t always mean the end for your home or business.

With expert equipment and products, our technicians will arrive right away after the first call to immediately assess the damage and start the repair process. We will also repair the damage sustained to your personal items if they have been severely compromised from the fire.
Damaging Effects of Fire and Smoke
When fire damage occurs within a property, the flames are not actually responsible for causing the majority of damage, rather their byproducts, the soot and smoke. Even after the fire has been extinguished, they are left to cover the remainder of the surfaces and leave a thick, oily residue that will compromise the structure, unless treated immediately.
Porous surfaces, such as fabrics, upholstery, drywall, wood, etc. are especially at risk because the particles are able to settle in quickly and cause permanent damage. Over time, they will become discolored and deteriorated as the byproducts have changed their structural integrity. This is why immediate restoration is necessary in order to return as many building materials and items to their original conditions as possible.
As soon as we have received your first call, our technicians will be on their way to begin assessing the damage, working with you to determine which items and materials are best suited for restoration and replacement. But please keep in mind that some items will be more cost-effective to replace than repair; however, we will work with you and your insurance claims adjuster to determine the best options for you in the restoration process.
Each technician at ServiceMaster by Crossroads has been IICRC-certified, in addition to having years of experience and training in the arts of fire damage restoration. They are well-equipped and knowledgeable of using the proper products for each material to have it restored as quickly and effectively as possible. With these cleaning products, they are effectively able to remove all tarnishing and etching, completely reversing the damaging effects.
As part of these restoration services, we will also ensure that each item has been effectively deodorized to be rid of all smoke odors from the fire. We will do this by applying a powerful but safe chemical to each surface, penetrating the odor and eliminating it from within. Finally, after the process is complete, you may not even notice that the damage had ever took place on the property.
