The dangers are not over when the fire goes out. Your home’s foundation may have been weakened, the electrical system may have shorted out, and burning may have left behind things that could make you sick. Many fire-damaged items, such as wallboard and mattresses, will hold soot and contamination forever. When in doubt, throw it out. Don’t risk injury or infection.
You and your family have been through a disaster. Your life has been turned upside down, and it will take time for things to return to normal with all the fire cleanup and repair jobs awaiting you. A disaster can do damage beyond the apparent destruction and debris you see everywhere. You should recognize that the fire can take its toll on you as well as your property. You need to look after yourself and your family as you focus on the distinct tasks of fire cleanup and recovery.
When extinguishing a fire, firefighters can cause water damage in addition to the smoke and fire damage already present in your home. We start by removing any standing water left behind and use our specialized procedures to restore any damage to flooring, walls, and carpets. Your heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems will also need to be inspected. Our decontamination services work to remove any smoke and soot for a meticulously deep clean. We services the greater Frederick Maryland area.

Non-salvageable saturated and burned elements need removal from the fire damage scene. Then we completely dry out everything else. Dehumidifiers and other drying apparatuses eliminate moisture that increases all related odors. Each fire damaged surface requires cleaning with specialized cleaners such as degreasers, soot erasers, and wood restoration disinfectants.
This meticulous cleansing is the key to countering the spread of contaminants and eliminating the unpleasant odors from the smoke damage and makes the fire damage restoration process flawless where it doesn’t have to be done a second time. We services the greater Frederick Maryland area.
