Drying and Dehumidification
Our team will use specialized equipment, including industrial air movers and dehumidifiers, to remove any water retained by building materials and other hard-to-access moisture. Our team’s use of industrial-grade dehumidifiers will help prevent secondary water damage like swelling and warping of floors, walls, and furniture.
Cleaning & Odor Removal
Our team will use specialized equipment and techniques to remove smoke and soot from ceilings, walls, and other surfaces.
Our team will clean your belongings, like furniture, upholstery, clothing, and other restorable personal items, damaged by the fire. Fire and water damage often require odor removal and deodorization treatments, since wet and smoke-damaged materials have an unpleasant odor.
Our team will identify and eliminate offensive odors with industrial air scrubbers and fogging equipment. This equipment can effectively treat serious and persistent odors that typical air fresheners and similar treatments cannot.
Our team will use industrial-specialty chemicals such as antimicrobial, antibacterial, or disinfectant treatments to clean your property thoroughly.
Our team will continually evaluate the condition of structural items and contents to ensure each and every item is restored to its pre-loss condition.
Our team’s mission is never complete until all affected areas are clean, dry, and are equal or better in appearance and function than they were before the loss occurred.
