Don't Go It Alone After A Smoke Damage

1/5/2021 (Permalink)

When your home or business has been damaged by fire, it's tempting to want to clean up the damage yourself and move on. Unfortunately, even the smallest of fire or smoke damages can have lasting implications for your property that may not be obvious in the immediate aftermath of your fire. 

Soot and ash left on surfaces will begin to discolor walls and ceilings after just a few days if not properly cleaned. Vinyl flooring and wood can also be damaged, requiring expensive replacement costs if not addressed quickly. Ash also impacts metal surfaces, potentially causing corrosion.

The most obvious problem after a fire or smoke damage is the smell that pervades every item and surface in your home. Because smoke particles are so fine, they can creep into the smallest crevices and leave a lingering odor that can last for months. Conventional cleaning products may only mask this problem, not eliminate it entirely.

From carpet and upholstery cleaning, to specialized cleaning of wood and delicate surfaces, we have the expertise and experience to restore your property to its preloss condition quickly. Addressing the problem of odor and smoke damage immediately helps to prevent permanent damage and keep costs down. Call us anytime day or night at 317-773-0422 and let a restoration specialist help  make your property "Like it never even happened."
