MCF Construction has been doing fire and smoke damage restoration for over 30 years.
Smoke damage restoration should begin as soon as possible after a fire. Acid soot and smoke residues begin to cause corrosion and discoloration in just minutes. If you’ve had a fire in your home, the clean-up probably seems overwhelming. The sooner you call a smoke restoration company to remove soot, ash and residues, the easier it will be to achieve a complete restoration.
Our professional advice is:
- Open windows.
- Call your insurance company.
- Call us.
We are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to for emergency service. Soot and ash are highly corrosive and they begin to damage surfaces and textiles in just a few minutes.
When a fire occurs in modern buildings, the fuel burned is not just wood and natural fibers, but also plastics, chemicals and other man-made substances that leave a toxic, gooey residue everywhere that the smoke permeated. Wood ash is acidic enough; throw in a handful of chemicals and you’ve got a witch’s brew of residues to clean up.
The good news is that we have years of experience in smoke damage restoration and will be by your side until your home is restored to its pre-loss condition. We’re not satisfied until you’re satisfied.
Smoke Damage Remediation
More victims of fires die due to smoke inhalation as opposed to burns. This is because chemically treated and synthetic building components release noxious gases, such as cyanide, when they burn. Many people assume that their homes are safe once flames have been extinguished. However, nothing can be further from the truth.
Sooty residues can contain just as many toxins as the smoke that created them. And if they are left behind and allowed to circulate through your heating and air conditioning system, they can be just as dangerous and deadly as they were when they were burning. Call now for smoke damage restoration.
Determining the Extent of the Damage
Among the most immediate concerns is separating what can be salvaged from what can’t. Our experience will help you determine what furnishings, fixtures and textiles should simply be replaced and which can be cleaned and restored.
Any items that are going to be discarded should be removed from the home right away to help reduce the presence of dangerous fumes. If your insurance adjustor hasn’t arrived yet, our smoke damage restoration services will keep photographs of our work to assist your claims process.
Need insurance guidance?
We have worked with major providers and we know exactly what sort of information they need to quickly process your claim. We’ll work with your insurer every step of the way to ensure you receive every benefit allowed by your policy.
Smoke damage restoration of different surfaces can require different cleaning treatments. We’ll use all of our experience to properly clean and restore each of your home’s features and furnishings.
Embedded odors that we can’t reach with regular cleaning methods can be dislodged with treatments that actually neutralize the smelly, smoky molecules.
- Thermal fogging – This is a smoke damage restoration process in which a chemical odor counteractant fog is allowed to permeate your home and walls the same way that the smoke did, neutralizing odors as it goes.
- Ozone generator – This treatment can also penetrate difficult materials to neutralize tough odors. Ozone actually breaks up smoke molecules, leaving no lingering effect behind. It is dangerous work that can damage lungs, but we take every possible precaution and treat with expert skill.
- Sealing – We might recommend that some areas with minimal damage be completely sealed to prevent any lingering fumes from escaping. We will also conduct a thorough inspection of your ductwork and your entire HVAC system. We’ll make sure you don’t have any stinky reminders every time your furnace or air conditioning turns on.
