Fire, smoke, and soot can all lead to serious property damage if they are not addressed promptly. The negative effects of fire are relatively obvious, but even smoke and soot can lead to destruction due to their corrosive and acidic natures.
At ServiceMaster Kwik Restore, we address all of these problems and more through our fire damage restoration services. We keep our phones available 24/7 in order to respond to emergencies and do everything we can to return your building and belongings back to their original condition.
We offer these services to residential and commercial property owners in Kenosha, WI.
Consequences of Fires
Fires are among the most devastating events that can occur on a property. They can destroy almost everything in their path and spread in little to no time at all.
They can also lead to other forms of damage that few recognize until it is too late.
The water and similar elements used to put out the fire can lead to damage, as can the resulting smoke and soot from the blaze.
Smoke and soot can travel to all areas of your property through the air, and lead to etching, discoloration, and permanent damage.
Various odors can be absorbed by porous elements as well. When getting your property restored, it is important to consider these risks, and make sure that they are addressed in a timely manner.
Restoring Your Property
Through our 24-hour emergency response services, we will arrive on-site as quickly as we can to begin the sanitization and restoration process. We will ensure that your building is stable and provide pre-cleaning services in order to prevent permanent damage from occurring.
Because of the unique nature of fire damage, it is critical that appropriate sanitization solutions and procedures are utilized.
Some materials respond differently to smoke and soot, and some cleaning products and methodologies can actually result in additional damage.
For this reason, we only offer the services of technicians that are highly trained and IICRC certified. No matter the surfaces or materials in question, our specialists will treat them properly.
If your building is structurally damaged by the fire, we will stabilize and repair it as required. If your belongings are at risk of being permanently damaged, we will do everything possible to salvage and restore them.
If you notice any lingering odors in your building, we will provide our state-of-the-art deodorization services. Our ultimate goal is to return your property to its original condition.
Actions to Avoid Following a Fire
As we mentioned above, improper actions can lead to additional damage if you are not careful. We encourage you to adhere to the following:
- Do not turn on your air conditioner or furnace
- Do not use electronic devices until they have been professionally inspected
- Do not attempt to clean porous surfaces
- Do not try to move large or heavy objects
- Do not consume or keep exposed food (even if it is canned)
We are available 24/7 to respond to emergencies, and are proud to assist property owners in Kenosha, WI.
