The flames and heat of a fire will usually cause severe damage but smoke can also result in considerable damage.  Smoke can stain and penetrate materials resulting in discoloration. Wet smoke will also leave a sticky residue on floors and surfaces that can also cause further damage.  Most types of smoke, be it wet smoke, dry smoke or protein smoke, will also leave behind a pungent and unpleasant odor.

Part of the smoke damage restoration process involves smoke removal, odor removal, cleaning and salvaging. Smoke and soot needs to be cleaned from surfaces and odors need to be extracted and neutralized.  The disaster recovery team in Lincolnwood uses special materials and equipment to mitigate smoke, remove stains and neutralizes odors.

Water damage is another potential cause of severe property damage. If water accumulates inside your home you will need to act fast to get rid of it. Water removal may require the use of specialized equipment such as pumps, humidifiers, fans and commercial cleaners and disinfectants. You do not want accumulated water to stand. Standing water will seep into materials, furniture, appliances and foundations and this can result in substantial damage. Water from a contaminated source will also pose an immediate health risk.
