A fire is a catastrophe that can be overwhelming. You may not know where to begin and wondering what is salvageable. Our Chicago team is ready to help.

What can I save from my fire-damaged home?

Fire restoration in Chicago homes will depend on the level of damage done to the house. This is based on the extensiveness of the fire. Our fire and smoke restoration technicians (FSRT) do everything possible to restore your home to preloss condition. There are three levels of fire damage:

  • Minor – Smoke residue is limited to a small area. The soot residue is light to moderate and can involve both dry and wet cleaning. Minimal replacement of items and repainting may not even be required.
  • Medium – Smoke residue is moderate. Walls may need repainting, and more items may need replacing. Stronger smoke odors are present. Heat damage is present in drywall and cabinets. More wet cleaning is involved.
  • Major – Damage is severe. Structural repairs are needed. Smoke residues are throughout the residence. Emergency services that involve boarding up the premises and removing debris are necessary. Contents that get restored will most likely be moved offsite.
