The Experts in Fire & Smoke Damage Restoration
If your residence or business has been affected by fire and smoke, you may be facing a long, but not impossible, path to recovery. After the fire has been extinguished, you may have to resolve smoke and soot damage, deal with complex insurance claims, and possibly make some hard decisions related to salvaging your possessions and rebuilding your property to its pre-fire condition.
Fire and smoke damage is often extensive enough to be beyond a standard contractor’s capability. You need a company who has team members specially trained in fire and smoke damage assessment, repair, and restoration. It is critical to the full recovery of an insurance settlement that everything is resolved regarding electrical, plumbing, structural, and overall property damage.

What to Do After a Fire
Immediately After a Fire Emergency
- Ask the fire crew lead or chief about the safety of your building and a timeline for re-entering your building.
- The fire department may have turned off your utilities. Check to be sure they are disconnected before going into the building. Don’t try to re-connect your utilities yourself - it’s best to have a professional look for leaks before resuming utilities.
- Don’t light a match, smoke on the property, or use electrical equipment or appliances until they have been properly inspected.
- Stay aware of electrical shock hazards, such as standing water and exposed wiring. Be mindful about damage inside walls that might not be visible.
- People with allergies and respiratory problems should stay out of the building until after any needed clean-up is finished.
- If you have a fireproof safe or strongbox that survived the fire, do not open the safe or box for several hours, to make sure the air inside has cooled.
Steps You Can Take After A Fire Emergency
Once it’s safe to enter your home or business, you can consider these steps in order to prevent further damage until we arrive:
- Open windows to get fresh air moving.
- Rub petroleum jelly or other oil on metal surfaces to stop or reduce the oxidation of the metal surfaces.
- Gently wipe down bath fixtures, counter-tops, and appliances with a household cleaner as soon as reasonable after a fire, as smoke residue may stain these fixtures.
- Brush smoke particulate off of draperies and furnishings.
- Please don’t try to wash walls, ceilings, or any porous surfaces.
- Throw away any food or canned goods exposed to excessive heat.
- Remove and/or deodorize clothing using proper smoke damage cleaning - note that improper smoke cleaning may embed set smoke odor permanently into your fabrics
