How It Works
Our professionals walk the damaged building and get an overall view of the damage. At this time we proactively identify any potential issues that may arise during the mitigation process.
Disaster Restoration Services will also facilitate communication with your insurance carrier throughout the entirety of the insurance claim to make sure all sides agree as to how to mitigate the damage. This will allow you to focus on your family during this stressful time.
Textiles, Soft Furnishings, Furniture, Art, Electronics
Careful packout of your salvageable belongings includes a detailed inventory so you'll know exactly where your belongings are during every phase of cleaning. Through the use of specific solvents, chemicals, detergents, and even ultrasonic cleaning, DRS is able to clean and restore items most companies would just throw away.
Structure Cleaning & Rebuild
Any structures (studs, floorboards, rafters) that are still structurally sound are cleaned with effective chemicals and tools. Anything that is unsafe due to the fire damage is removed and replaced with new materials.
Smoke and soot leave behind a lingering odor, even after the structures are cleaned and the damage removed. High end thermal fogging and hydroxyl generators are used to disperse odor-eliminating compounds throughout your homes natural air currents, penetrating any and all hidden/hard to reach areas.
Complete Rebuild after Remediation & Mitigation
Rebuilding your home requires that all safety issues are taken care of and the home's structure is as good as it ever was. Our team of professionals are here to rebuild the place you call home.

Frequently Asked Questions
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 begin 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 in general, if the damage was caused by a flame, it's covered. Your best bet is to hire a professional restoration team 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, you 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 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.
