The Damage caused by fires is more than meets the eye. Aside from the obvious damage caused by the flames, the home has been covered with smoke, ash and doused with water. It’s important to begin the clean up process immediately to prevent permanent damage or discoloration from soot residue. Damages increase and restoration costs escalate the longer the neutralization, corrosion control and cleaning is delayed.
If your home or commercial building has been damaged by fire, acting fast can prevent further destruction. Water, chemicals and smoke residues may interact with surfaces they touch. Weakened structures may collapse. Vandals may enter the building, stealing or destroying your precious belongings and materials.

Smoke is quite unique and can cause lots of unseen issues in a fire-damaged property. The resulting smoke from a fire can penetrate the cavities of the structure, causing hidden damage and odor. Smoke can also flow through plumbing systems traveling throughout an entire property. Including areas that are seemingly unaffected by the fire. Our trained fire and smoke damage technicians can assess your property and determine how much smoke damage is present.

Frequently Asked Questions
When should a Arizona home or business owner consider fire restoration services?
In the aftermath of a disaster, it can be difficult for AZ home or business owners to get their bearings. Before long, the shock will wear off and reality will begin to set in. It’s not easy recovering when a building is ravaged by open flames. However, most people are just worried about cleaning up the visible debris, discounting the major problems that ash and soot can cause. If the Phoenix area home or business owner doesn’t act within a day or two of the disaster, residue ash can quickly cause permanent damage to the property.
What will happen to a building if AZ fire restoration services are not immediate?
Ash is highly acidic and prone to dispersing through the air when it is disturbed, which is can be as easy as simply breathing on it. When swept up into the air, the building’s climate control system will pick it up and blanket entire rooms, making it much more difficult to get rid of. Because it is acidic, it will eat away at a number of materials if it sits for long, especially glass, metal and drywall.
Within a couple days, ash can permanently etch glass, including windows, weakening them considerably and forcing replacement. During this time, any drywall covered in ash can permanently discolor, turning to a sickly yellow and becoming a major eyesore. After a couple weeks, ash will corrode metals, which can result in water leaks or other expensive problems.
And ash is not just a risk to the building. It can also irritate lungs, throats and eyes, resulting in breathing difficulty, coughing, sneezing and general discomfort. This is particularly troublesome for children with asthma, as the ash can trigger an attack.
How do Arizona technicians perform fire restoration services?
Most of the effort Arizona technicians put into the restoration are spent on cleaning up the building. A thorough cleanup is the only way to completely rid the building of ash and debris, so the work is labor intensive. AZ technicians will first inspect the property to gauge where cleanup is needed the most and start there, working over every surface that may have been affected by the disaster. Professionals use special agents that are designed to neutralize ash and smoke, and apply them to walls, ceilings, countertops, furniture, and anything else that may be under siege by damaging ash and soot.
Smoke odors are another issue that needs to be dealt with as it can seep through walls and deposit on inaccessible areas. To deal with this, professionals sometimes employ thermal foggers, which are machines that release clouds of odor-neutralizing particles. These particles can go anywhere the smoke goes, wiping them out in spots that are out of reach.
Why should AZ home and business owners consider certified professionals first for Fire Restoration services?
It takes a lot of technical skill to effectively clean up the damage left behind by a disaster, and the best way for a technician to acquire this skill is by attaining certification. There is little time to waste when looking for a professional to clean up the damage, and certification can provide an effective shorthand method in tracking one down.
