RESIDENTIAL FIRE & SMOKE DAMAGE REMOVAL SERVICES

Fire in the Home

Seeing your home and precious possessions consumed by fire can be one of the most severe losses that a homeowner can experience. After such a devastating loss, reassurance comes from having clear guidance and support in salvaging as much as possible from fire and smoke damage. At ServiceMaster Restore®, our technicians are more than talented professionals; they're caring people ready to get you back in your home as quickly as possible while keeping you informed every step of the way.

Don't try to do it yourself!

The residue left behind after a fire is a biohazard and can cause health problems if it is not taken care of correctly and thoroughly. You do not want to attempt to clean up your home on your own after a fire or you may cause more damage. Only experts with the right training and tools can assure the job is done properly.

Did you know that smoke continues to destroy your home and its contents even after the fire is out?

Smoke that has coated or penetrated surfaces continues to affect the chemical composition of fabrics, metals, walls, ceilings and even tiles. Count on us to handle every aspect of the smoke and soot removal as well as restore areas damaged by fire.
