Fires can occur from multiple sources, making them a nearly constant threat to homes and businesses throughout Cook County. Because we have many trained professionals with Fire & Smoke Restoration or Odor Control certifications, we can handle the post-fire cleaning of structures like the United Center or the Chicago Theatre as easily as house fire clean up. Our experienced team can help with:

  • Fire damage restoration
  • Smoke remediation
  • Fire damaged homes

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.

Our Fire Restoration Process

Every fire damage event is a little different and requires a unique solution, but the general process stays the same. The steps listed below illustrate our process for the “typical” fire damage emergency.

Step 1: Emergency Contact

We are available 24 hours, 7 days a week. When you call, one of our representatives will ask a series of questions about the fire damage to your home or business. This information helps us respond immediately with all the needed equipment and resources.

Step 2: Inspection and Fire Damage Assessment

We carefully inspect and test adjoining rooms of your property to determine the extent of the fire, smoke, and soot damage. This step is crucial to developing a plan of action.

Step 3: Immediate Board-Up and Roof-Tarp Service (if needed)

In many fire damage cases, it’s necessary to board up missing windows and walls and to place tarps on a damaged roof. This helps to maintain security and to protect against further damage. 

Step 4: Water Removal and Drying (if water damage is present)

If needed, we can begin the water removal process with powerful pumps and extraction units. This removes most of the water. We complete the water removal and drying process with industrial-strength dehumidifiers and air movers. 

Step 5: Removal of Smoke and Soot from All Surfaces

Your property’s ceiling, walls, floors, and other surfaces will likely have smoke and soot residue. We’ll use specialized cleaning products, equipment, and techniques to properly clean your home or business. 

Step 6: Cleaning and Sanitizing

We clean and sanitize the restorable items and structures damaged by the fire. Our professionals use a variety of cleaning techniques to restore your belongings to pre-fire condition. We’re also trained to remove odors using industrial air scrubbers and fogging equipment.

Step 7: Restoration

Restoration is the process or restoring your home or business to its pre-fire condition. Restoration may involve relatively minor repairs, such as replacing drywall and painting, or it could include significant reconstruction of entire rooms.
