Fire and smoke damage cleanup can appear to be a simple process
but it requires the knowledge, experience, professional equipment and manpower to be done right.
What fire leaves behind will continue to affect the property. Ash, soot and smoke will cause extensive discoloration and etching, corrosion and lingering odors. Fire damage restoration professionals can effectively clean fire and smoke damage with specialized equipment and chemicals to stop the corrosive process before it becomes a serious problem.
Ash can do more damage than you think. It can discolor most surfaces and if there is residue of burnt plastic that can start the discoloration of fiberglass and finishes on appliances within minutes. Metals will tarnish, clothing and upholstery will be covered by soot that is hard to remove, wood and vinyl will need to be refinished and metal will start corroding.
While researching for a restoration company, you should only consider companies that are properly trained and certified by the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC). IICRC requires its registrants to take extensive coursework and training before earning the certification.
To understand the risk you are taking by not contacting a professional smoke and fire restoration company, the costs for restoring your property properly will skyrocket after a few weeks. Carpets and furnishing will permanently discolor, glass will be severely etched and other belongings will permanently be damaged and need replacing.

Within hours to days
Wooden furniture, flooring, painted walls, and clothing can become permanently stained if not addressed within hours to days of damage, and metal surfaces will at this point begin to rust, pit, and corrode, requiring refinishing or replacement.
Prolonged soot exposure will embed itself in the fibers and surfaces, resulting in a longer, more costly restoration with a higher likelihood of replacement.
