The thought of a fire can really strike fear in the heart of a homeowner as they can quickly overtake your home and seriously jeopardize the safety of your family. The fire itself is responsible for considerable damage, but the most damage actually occurs after the fire is extinguished. Soot and corrosive byproducts that are created by burnt synthetic materials can tarnish surfaces and objects and this tarnishing will become permanent in just 72 hours. RestorationMaster provides fire and smoke damage restoration services in St. Augustine, FL to help restore homes and businesses damaged by a fire. We will stop the spread of the damage upon our arrival and we can repair or restore most objects and structural elements damaged by fire or smoke.
When synthetic materials are burned in a fire, they undergo chemical reactions that create corrosive byproducts. These byproducts, as well as soot from the smoke, continue to hang around after the fire is extinguished and settle in areas that were unaffected by the fire itself. They often settle on vulnerable household surfaces and objects which results in tarnishing and etching. Quick restoration is the key to preventing this damage from becoming permanent. We can effectively remove soot and corrosion from chrome, tile, porcelain, brass, marble, aluminum, furniture, carpeting, and other surfaces and objects with our effective chemical cleaners.

Smoke Damage Restoration
The smoke tends to cause more damage than the flames themselves because smoke can spread anywhere in a home or building and it leaves behind byproducts that can cause further damage after the fire has been extinguished. Soot settles on household surfaces, furniture, and other objects and causes discoloration and etching while smoke residue forms on walls and ceilings. The technicians of RestorationMaster provide smoke damage restoration to clean and restore surfaces and objects damaged by soot or smoke residue. It is very important to get these materials restored as soon as possible before they sustain irreversible damage.
Another damaging byproduct of smoke is smoke odor. Smoke odors can be very pungent and they get absorbed into building materials and furnishings which causes them to linger long after the fire. We provide complete deodorization services to extract the smoke odor from the furnishings, building materials, and air space in your home using state-of-the-art deodorization equipment.
Fires cause an overwhelming amount of damage but calling a certified professional such as RestorationMaster for fire damage restoration as soon as possible will help you keep the damage to a minimum. We will not only repair the damage caused by the fire, but also remove any soot damage or lingering smoke odors to completely restore your home or building. We are available 24 hours a day at (904) 559-3223 to respond to fire damage emergencies in St. Augustine, FL.
