a fire damaged set of stairs in an office that are covered in soot and debris are everywhere Getting your office back up and running after a fire is a daunting task. Contact SERVPRO for technicians who are here to help. We are standing by.

We Remove Fire and Smoke Damage Fast

With thousands of businesses in the Windy City, Chicagoland commercial properties cannot afford to wait months to have their properties restored after fire damage events.

Where is the Damage?

Fire and smoke damage in Downtown Chicago offices can be in many rooms. We must assess the scope of the work, including the severity of any soot soiling. This can include:

  • Soot solids
  • Grease
  • Ash
  • Odors

What is the Best Soot Removal Solution?

Choosing the best cleaning option depends on the type of smoke damage and its location. SERVPRO professionals carefully assess conditions to choose among solvents, detergents, and dry cleaning solutions.

Pre-Testing Washable Surfaces

Before any cleaning approaches are selected, SERVPRO professionals must determine their viability for restoring soiled surfaces. For example, some of the potent chemicals in our inventory could damage finished materials like wood desks. Pre-testing our products against the materials that require them is a way to ensure we are choosing the most efficient and thorough restoration solution for the office.

Can the Materials Be Salvaged?

Surfaces are not always washable and preservable, even with the timely response of our Large Loss team. Controlled demolition is a suitable reaction when it is determined that contents or building materials have been too overwhelmed by smoke and soot damage. We remove and safely discard soiled construction elements to prepare the property for any repairs and reconstruction necessary. Material salvageability is often determined in the initial property inspection.

When contending with commercial damage to office spaces, we must quickly determine the salvageability of materials and contents impacted by fire and smoke. We work quickly to isolate affected areas to keep your doors open if possible and work around the clock to reopen your office if it is not.
