Raleigh, NC Fire Damage Cleanup and Restoration

Fires are devastating for structures, whether it is the thousands of homes in the city or large losses to facilities like the North Carolina State Capitol Building. 

What Emergency Services Help After Raleigh Structure Fires? 

Initial emergency services help to focus the whole restoration approach by our technicians. Fires in homes and businesses can get out of control, so we provide a stable and safe environment to begin recovery and clean up. Some services include:

  • Content cleaning
  • Air filtration
  • Fire and smoke damage removal

Can Smoke Damage Removal Include Odors?

After a fire, it can be challenging to return to normal living conditions with harsh odors present. One of the objectives of full fire damage restoration in the property is the removal of these noxious smells from the house. This process can begin with reducing the severity of the odors with counteractant products, followed by full neutralization with sealing products and deodorizers.

Removing Soot from Raleigh Homes and Businesses 

One of the more formidable obstacles of fire restoration in homes and businesses is the removal of soot. As thick and challenging as these deposits can be, we have multiple tools and products designed exclusively to loosen debris and clean the underlying substrate to protect these materials whenever possible. We are prepared to handle soot damage of all types.
