Emergency Service for Fire Damaged Homes in Chicago

Our technicians' initial steps to recover damaged Chicago homes are critical to reducing hazardous conditions and protecting contents. Fire and smoke damage concerns can spread fast, and we can work to implement valuable air filtration equipment and HEPA products to trap circulating particles that could be hazardous to the health of those exposed. Because we prioritize a fast response, these vital emergency services can get started as soon as possible.

Odor Removal and Smoke Remediation in Chicago 

While smoke remediation can often mean multiple services provided in house fire clean up after an emergency, odor removal and deodorization can be instrumental in returning a house to its original condition. Technicians can lessen harsh odors with counteractant products in our inventory, such as granules and beads, but the removal of lingering smells falls to a combination of deodorizers such as ULV foggers, ozone machines, and hydroxyl generators.
