1. Fire and Smoke Damage Restoration
Fire is a realistic hazard in both residential and commercial spaces. The after math of a fire can lead to numerous health and environmental issues such as off-gasses and contaminants. When a fire starts on a property, the more items consumed leads to a stronger fire. Household items such as plastics, metals, proteins, and other materials give off a variety of chemicals when burned. Once burned, these chemicals can contaminate household items and start to cause irreparable damage to the structure. The contaminated materials need to be handled and cleaned by professionals who understand fire and smoke residue and how to mitigate its affects. Treating the items within the correct timeframe will minimize the damage and maximize what we can save.
