Raleigh, NC Fire Damage Cleanup and Restoration

From the downtown district to dormitories and student housing of North Carolina State University, fires can quickly spread to be traumatic and destructive events. Our central location allows us to quickly reach Raleigh homes and all of Wake County when water disasters strike. 

How Do Fire Damages Get Mitigated?

Fires can be a rapidly destructive situation, so mitigative actions are essential to creating a safe and stable environment to begin restoration as fast as possible. We work directly after first responders and communicate directly with insurance providers during mitigation actions like:

  • smoke residue removal
  • content relocation
  • air filtration
  • fire restoration
  • water removal services

Effective Soot Cleanup in Raleigh Structures

Soot is one of the most challenging hurdles for restoration after a fire loss incident. Partial combustion of fuels can create thick residues on surfaces and contents in the house. A combination of dry and wet cleaning strategies must often be used to restore hosting elements, including our potent solvents and detergents.  

Removing Smoke Odors Trapped in Raleigh Homes

Smoke can be detrimental to a property in more ways than soot particles, however. Harsh odors are another formidable obstacle our professionals must overcome, and we can do so through an intricate process of reducing the severity of malodors and ultimately neutralizing them. We have several deodorization tools in our inventory ideal for smoke odor removal.
