Chicago, IL Fire Damage Cleanup and Restoration

Air Quality Filtration and Smoke Remediation in Chicago Homes

As critical as mitigation can be for Chicago homes after fire damage, making the property as safe as possible for responding technicians must also be prioritized. Circulating hazardous matter and particulates from soot, ash, and smoke must be filtered out to provide a safer work environment for our FSRT team. Multiple HEPA products are used in this venture, including large scrubbing units and multi-purpose machines like hydroxyl generators that can filter and deodorize simultaneously.

Soot Removal for Fire Damaged Homes in Chicago 

Smoke remediation for area homes can also mean removing and cleaning residues and soils present on surfaces, building materials, and contents in the house. Partial combustion of fuels can leave a thick, black residue over many surfaces that is compromising to the underlying material and requires multiple cleaning approaches to resolve entirely. From soda blasting to controlled demolition, we can help.

Our Fire Restoration Process

Every fire damage event is a little different and requires a unique solution, but the general process stays the same. The steps listed below illustrate our process for the “typical” fire damage emergency.

Step 1: Emergency Contact

We are available 24 hours, 7 days a week. When you call, one of our representatives will ask a series of questions about the fire damage to your home or business. This information helps us respond immediately with all the needed equipment and resources.

Step 2: Inspection and Fire Damage Assessment

We carefully inspect and test adjoining rooms of your property to determine the extent of the fire, smoke, and soot damage. This step is crucial to developing a plan of action.

Step 3: Immediate Board-Up and Roof-Tarp Service (if needed)

In many fire damage cases, it’s necessary to board up missing windows and walls and to place tarps on a damaged roof. This helps to maintain security and to protect against further damage. 

Step 4: Water Removal and Drying (if water damage is present)

If needed, we can begin the water removal process with powerful pumps and extraction units. This removes most of the water. We complete the water removal and drying process with industrial-strength dehumidifiers and air movers. 

Step 5: Removal of Smoke and Soot from All Surfaces

We use specialized equipment and techniques to remove smoke and soot from ceilings, walls, and other surfaces. 

Step 6: Cleaning and Sanitizing

We clean and sanitize the restorable items and structures damaged by the fire. Our professionals use a variety of cleaning techniques to restore your belongings to pre-fire condition. We’re also trained to remove odors using industrial air scrubbers and fogging equipment.

Step 7: Restoration

Restoration is the final step—getting your home or business to its pre-fire condition. Restoration may involve minor repairs, such as replacing drywall, painting, and installing new carpet; or it may entail major repairs such as the reconstruction of various areas or rooms in a home or business.
