After the fire is extinguished you are left with a huge mess of water, smoke and soot combined. If this is not removed and cleaned immediately your property will suffer even bigger damage than from the fire. Smoke and soot are particularly nasty and hard to remove.

Smoke removal process
Smoke and soot are removed in three steps. We carefully complete each step before proceeding to the next one just be sure that everything is taken care of.
1. Firstly, we must remove all your furniture and other items from the property. You can choose to restore damaged items or to replace them with new ones. Both options are viable, but we always suggest to our clients to restore them because it is a much cheaper way and if the restoration process is done by professionals you won’t be able to tell any difference.
2. The second step is to clean every surface. Special chemicals and scrubbers are used in this procedure, but don’t worry, everything is perfectly safe for the surroundings. Our workers know how to reach even the smallest of spaces, so we won’t miss any spot.
3. Lastly, we will deodorize your property with odor negating chemicals. This will kill off any unpleasant smells and make rooms fit for living again. After these three steps are finished the restoration process can begin. ABR Emergency Restoration offers this service, of course.
