Kitchen Fire 6/26/19

This fire damage happened in June of 2019 in a new two month old home. Fire damages are more common than people think and often start in the kitchen. In this particular case, the customers over caught on fire and the food that was wrapped in plastic exploded. The fire quickly spread and the homeowner put water on it thinking it would contain the fire. Many people don't realize that if the fire is a grease fire you need to smoother the fire by eliminating oxygen. This can be done through a large heavy blanket or in throwing flour on the item on fire. If you put water on the grease that is on fire it will actually spread and become unmanageable. Sadly, this was the case for this customer. All of his belongings were damaged either by fire or smoke damage.

We have vendors that specializes in restoring damaged items, including sentimental photographs. If ever this happens to you, please give us a call at any time. We are always here to help!

Example of Smoke Damage Repair

cleaning a fire and smoke damage

This is an example of some of our wonderful employees doing a cleaning job for a customer that had smoke damage outside of his home. The affected area was a white outside pergola that contained a grill that was used often by the family. We explained to the customer that could try to remove the soot and smoke damage using our cleaning supplies that are specific to fire damages. We explained that this would leave the pergola looking much better but not perfect. For those desired results we needed to first do an overall clean then repaint the pergola. We did this within the customers budget and time frame and they were very pleased with our work. They appreciated our communication and said they would use us for other work.
