Cleaning Up Smoke Damage in Lake Zurich Homes

Fire and smoke damage are both formidable obstacles for responding technicians, but smoke can impact the structure in numerous ways. Smoke damage removal implies several actions taken to eliminate surface soot residues or circulating particles in the environment. These are carcinogenic particulates, making exposure a substantial concern for unprotected homeowners or responding professionals. We can address these concerns fast with air filtration machines and the appropriate personal protective equipment to ensure the safety of technicians. 

What Smoke Remediation Efforts Aid Lake Zurich Properties?

Removing surface smoke soils and oily residues can also be a considerable challenge. We have numerous powerful cleaning agents and solvents to dissolve, emulsify, and loosen soiling to clean underlying substrates.

Our Fire Restoration Process

Every fire damage event is a little different and requires a unique solution, but the general process stays the same. The steps listed below illustrate our process for the “typical” fire damage emergency.

Step 1: Emergency Contact

We are available 24 hours, 7 days a week. When you call, one of our representatives will ask a series of questions about the fire damage to your home or business. This information helps us respond immediately with all the needed equipment and resources.

Step 2: Inspection and Fire Damage Assessment

We determine the scope of the fire and smoke damage by examining the affected areas and by testing the adjoining rooms for smoke and soot damage. An accurate assessment is crucial to the planning process. 

Step 3: Immediate Board-Up and Roof-Tarp Service (if needed)

In many fire damage cases, it’s necessary to board up missing windows and walls and to place tarps on a damaged roof. This helps to maintain security and to protect against further damage. 

Step 4: Water Removal and Drying (if water damage is present)

If needed, we can begin the water removal process with powerful pumps and extraction units. This removes most of the water. We complete the water removal and drying process with industrial-strength dehumidifiers and air movers. 

Step 5: Removal of Smoke and Soot from All Surfaces

We use specialized equipment and techniques to remove smoke and soot from ceilings, walls, and other surfaces. 

Step 6: Cleaning and Sanitizing

We clean and sanitize the restorable items and structures damaged by the fire. Our professionals use a variety of cleaning techniques to restore your belongings to pre-fire condition. We’re also trained to remove odors using industrial air scrubbers and fogging equipment.

Step 7: Restoration

Restoration is the process or restoring your home or business to its pre-fire condition. Restoration may involve relatively minor repairs, such as replacing drywall and painting, or it could include significant reconstruction of entire rooms.
