Emergency Fire Restoration

The first 24-48 hours following a fire are critical to saving as much property and possessions as possible. It's common to assume that once the fire is out, everything has been damaged. This is often far from the truth.  Soot and smoke from fires can be acidic if not neutralized quickly enough severe damage may continue throughout this time period. Furthermore, the effects from the hundreds of gallons of water to put out the fire must be treated otherwise damage will spread to the rest of your belongings or structure.

Once a fire has set forth in your home of place of business, it is important to have an experienced fire restoration company that can provide an
immediate response. Call us at 847-934-5697 for immediate service. We will help you determine how far the fire and smoke traveled and what is the extent of the damage, remove water used to put out fire, tarp roofs if needed, cover broken doors and windows to prevent further damage from elements or vandalism and begin removal of smoke soot charred materials odors so that you can start the reconstruction process as soon as possible, with the least damage.

Classifications of Fires

There are multiple different types of fires and the materials that were combusted are used to classify the fire type. Fire classifications include the following:

  1.  - material such as wood, paper or any material that leaves an ash
  2. – flammable or combustible liquids including gasoline and oil
  3. – electrical fire 
  4. - combustible metals K- involving cooking oils, animal fat or grease

The most important thing to understand is that each type of fire requires a different cleaning method. Using the wrong method or cleaning product can cause even more irreversible damage to items being restored.  Having the wrong cleanup treatment can lead to more damage and may not be covered by your insurance. Smoke and fire clean ups require professional training and experience for proper restoration.  This is why it is important to have an experienced technician from Midwest Smoke and Fire on your side.

Consequences of Improver Remediation

You may not know this, but the smoke and soot byproducts from incomplete combustion can be harmful! The residue left behind after a fire is full of carcinogens that pose danger to your health. That's why only trained professionals should perform fire restoration - you could end up with serious complications if work is not performed properly.

Fire damaged structural components need to be replaced. The smell will not go away if the source of odors are left in place, which requires removing fire damage on surfaces and replacing them with new ones. Smoke penetrates between walls, cabinet insulation and refrigerators because hot temperatures move towards cooler ones if they can. For this reason smoke will penetrate into these areas making the odors of fire never go away. Water Mold Fire Restoration technicians understand this which is why we are successful removing odors where non-professionals cannot be.
