There is very little that's more devastating to a property owner than a fire in your home or business. Once the flames subside and the smoke clears, you can trust the professionals at GCS Restoration to be ready to jump to your aid. A prompt and effective response to an emergency fire damage is critical to salvaging as much property as possible. Not only does the property face structural damage from the flames themselves, but there will be residual damage from smoke, soot, and the water used to put out the fire. If you've experienced a fire at your property, don't hesitate to call us at (800) 691-2767 24/7 so our emergency fire damage restoration team can help restore your peace of mind.
Cleaning the smoke damage from fire requires unique skills and techniques, and our expert team has the training and equipment necessary for the restoration of smoke damage. Even the smallest fire can produce a vast amount of smoke, leaving behind soot and odors that penetrate the porous materials in your homes like your carpet, upholstery, and clothing. At GCS Restoration, our smoke damage restoration specialists are on standby to evaluate the extent of the damage to your property and develop a plan of action to clean and restore the property to its pre-loss conditions effectively. Additionally, we have the knowledge and capability to work directly with your insurance company to make the process as easy as possible for you. Call us today at (800) 691-2767 for your smoke damage restoration needs.
Odors from any kind of smoke are known to linger and can be very difficult to remove because smoke particles embed themselves deeply into every surface of the home. No matter the source of the smoke, it will do its best to infiltrate every article of clothing, wall, cabinet, and piece of furniture in the home. Normal household cleaners cannot adequately penetrate these areas to remove these odors.
Not only is smoke odor irritating, but prolonged exposure to lingering fire and smoke odor also has the potential to cause health problems, including allergies. At GCS Restoration, our smoke damage restoration professionals will use specialized equipment and chemicals to remove the odors completely. When we come to your home, we'll thoroughly evaluate the damage and create an appropriate plan of action to properly remediate the smoke odor and restore your property.

It's never a quick fix, though we've gathered together a multi-discipline team of contractors and technicians to work in tandem to complete the work as soon as possible. From structural repairs to sand/soda-blasting to odor removal to contents cleaning, our fire damage restoration crew begins as soon as the project scope is determined, and we don't stop until the job is done and both you and the insurance company are satisfied with the results.
Most often, yes. You'll need to check your specific policy for the full scope of coverage, but generally, it's covered if a flame caused the damage. Your best bet is to hire a professional restoration company such as [company,data=name] to help you through the claims process. We know how to avoid some common missteps when it comes to making sure the entire loss is documented and covered. Many homeowners and insurance companies forget, for instance, to consider that your HVAC system will need to be cleaned of soot, and, since fires are extinguished using water, many areas of your home may need to be restored due to water damage even if they weren't directly affected by the fire.
Depending on the extent or location of the fire damage, some homeowners can move back in a few days or longer. The fire department will usually turn off electricity and gas to the property right away, and that won't be restored until a building inspector says that it's safe to turn those utilities back on. If you experienced significant smoke damage and the home's occupants include elderly persons, young children, or those with chronic health conditions, it may be wise to stay until the smoke cleanup is complete. Contracting with a company experienced in fire damage restoration can often get you back home sooner, because they'll have the resources to hire and manage the many tradespeople who will need to work together to make the home liveable again.
DIY soot removal is not recommended. Commercially available products can actually cause permanent damage to surfaces. Soot itself is primarily oil-based, but that residue also contains toxic, possibly biohazard contaminants.
Smoke damage is rarely limited to one area of the house, and it leaves behind a residue that can hide in crevices and out-of-reach areas, and a simple "airing out" may not be sufficient. We recommend consulting with a smoke damage technician who can help you troubleshoot the next steps.
