Fire & Smoke Damage Needs Expert Cleanup
Fires big and small can cause significant damage to a home. Fire damage can happen any time of year. There may also be water damage with a fire loss because of the water used to extinguish the fire. The water damage is timely and should be addressed immediately.
Smoke residue and soot should be addressed as soon as possible. Smoke soot is highly acidic and within a few days, it can permanently damage many surfaces. An initial cleaning or neutralization of this strong acid should happen soon.
Anyone who enters a heavy fire or smoke- damaged area should wear personal protective equipment. Personal protective equipment consists of respiratory protection and may also include: goggles, hard hat, gloves and protective footwear.

Moisture Control is the Key to Mold Control
Typically when water enters into your environment most assume that only the horizontal surfaces such as floors are wet. What they may not realize is that there are many substrates that may also become wet, either by direct contact, absorption, or due to vapor pressure. It then is necessary to call a reliable restorer to do a moisture evaluation of your environment. Water (moisture) left to dry on its own will cause serious damage.
There are companies that only extract the water they see. They may install some air movers to dry what they see. This is not enough! It also may take several days at considerable expense. You could end up with some serious mold problems!
Many times portions of the entire structure may become wet. That is why it is necessary to ask questions to assure yourself that the company you're talking to has the necessary qualifications to do your job. Also realize that with the inspection it may turn out that there is nothing for you to worry about with regard to your structure.

According to IICRC, "Keeping floor coverings fresh is an important part of maintaining a healthy indoor environment. Their fibers catch and hold particles that could contaminate the air quality inside the home. Foot traffic, accidents, pets, children, and normal wear are among the many reasons that a carpet or rug may need care beyond regular vacuuming." That is where we come in. Let us take the work away from you. We do a thorough steam cleaning, with hot water extraction and a mild detergent to make your carpet clean and fresh.
According to the Environmental Protection Agency, EPA, molds are part of the natural environment, and can be found everywhere, indoors and outdoors. Mold is not usually a problem, unless it begins growing indoors. That's when remediation begins.
Crime scene clean up is a term applied to the cleanup of blood, bodily fluids, and other potentially infectious materials (OPIM). It is also referred to as biohazard remediation, because crime scenes are only a portion of situations in which biohazard cleaning is necessary. Such incidents may include accidents, suicides, homicides, and decomposition after unattended death.
Dirty dryer vents are the #1 cause of all household fires. The dryer duct is usually a 4" diameter. The slightest amount of deposit can greatly reduce the ability to exhaust. When it starts taking longer to dry the clothes, the problem is not usually the dryer, but rather the exhaust system. Optimum airflow is the key to effective dryer performance.
The National Air Duct Cleaners Association, NADCA, rule of thumb for consumers is that "if your ducts look dirty, they probably are." In a typical six-room home, up to 40 pounds of dust is created annually through everyday living. Your ducts can harbor contaminants that would cause serious problems for people with respiratory health conditions, autoimmune disorders, or some environmental allergies.
