Fires can occur with little to no warning, and the damage can be devastating. Buildings can be destroyed in a matter of minutes or hours, and everything within them can be lost.
At ServiceMaster Kwik Restore, we offer complete fire damage restoration services to property owners in need in Elgin, IL.
Through these services, we respond rapidly to limit the extent of the damage and do everything possible to restore your building and belongings.
Fire, Smoke, and Soot
While fires are known to engulf essentially everything in their paths, their resulting smoke and soot actually do most of the damage in a majority of cases.
This is because these elements are corrosive and continue to damage surfaces until they are removed.
If they are not addressed quickly, then everything in their way will be at risk of etching, corrosion, and discoloration.
Emergency Restoration Services
At ServiceMaster Kwik Restore, we offer 24/7 emergency response capabilities to limit the damage caused by fires and their byproducts.
Safely evacuating everybody from the building, and getting the fire put out, should be your top priorities.
As this is being completed, you should contact our representatives.
We will respond swiftly to provide critical pre-cleaning services that give affected surfaces and items in your building the greatest odds of being fully restored.
Our technicians are all highly trained and qualified to provide industry-leading fire damage restoration services.
We utilize precise chemical cleaners to eliminate the damaging effects of smoke and soot based on the materials that are affected (such as brass, tile, aluminum, upholstery, carpeting, etc.).
We also make use of professional-grade sanitization equipment and restoration procedures to return your property back to normal.
Whether your building has suffered extensive physical destruction, or your important belongings are damaged, we will do everything possible to get them restored back to their original condition.
Another issue that results from fires is the development of lingering odors. This occurs because the smells get absorbed by porous materials on-site.
We work to eliminate these odors so that you do not need to have a daily reminder of the devastating event.
Tips for Preventing Further Damage
When a fire takes place on your property, there are certain things that you should not do:
- Do not use your air conditioner or furnace
- Do not try to clean drywall, wood, or similarly porous surfaces
- Do not use electronics until they have been inspected
- Do not attempt to move large objects
- Do not consume any food that may have been exposed to fire, smoke, or soot
