Wheeling , IL Fire Damage Cleanup and Restoration

While the community has taken on a shape and style of its own over the past many decades, this suburb of Chicago was initially named after Wheeling, WV, a former capital of that state. With the population now reaching 40,000, this offshoot community has surpassed the size and grandeur of its namesake, with many institutions, educational centers, and cultural museums available for the enrichment of its residents. When fire damages affect this neighborhood, our professionals can help with:

  • Fire and smoke damage
  • Fire damaged homes
  • Fire damage restoration
  • Smoke remediation

Can Inspections Help in Wheeling’s Fire Damaged Homes?

Getting an idea of the damage and its impact on the property can be vital to preparing the appropriate restoration response to help. Not every property reacts the same to exposure of specific fire damage effects, as many properties protected by the Wheeling Historical Society are built with the original materials from 19th-century constructions. Damage assessments help to determine where problems exist in the appropriate smoke remediation strategy to overcome them.

Does Smoke Remediation Tackle Odors in Wheeling Homes? 

Smoke damage can impact properties in multiple ways, but few have the far-reaching effect that harsh odors do after extinguishment. Between real smells and those perceived because of the damage to the household, our technicians must apply multiple strategies to neutralize and eliminate smoke odors where they exist.
