We recognize the emotional and physical impacts fire damage has on property owners, and we work with determination and compassion to mitigate secondary damages and salvage your personal property. As an IICRC trained and certified smoke and fire damage restoration company, we can often minimize replacement costs by cleaning and restoring your property to pre-fire condition.

What is Smoke and Fire Damage Restoration?

Fire and smoke damage restoration is a process that begins as soon as a professional engineer or building inspector says the damaged property is safe to enter. Believe it or not, in some cases the steps taken by the fire department to extinguish the fire can cause extensive water damage to buildings and personal property.

While fighting the fire, the fire department may have broken windows and cut holes in the roof. This slows down the growth of flames and releases dark smoke that can make it difficult for firefighters to see. The firefighters may also cut holes in walls to make sure that the fire is completely extinguished and there is no risk of any smouldering "hot spots" hidden in the walls.

Smoke and Soot Cleaning After Fire Damage

During a fire, smoke is driven by heat and penetrates throughout your property. Smoke can combine with humidity and form corrosive residues. Residual smoke may burn as well, causing etching, pitting or chemical burning on surfaces. The longer your property is left without smoke and fire damage restoration, the greater the damage that may occur.

After fire damage has been discovered, our team will quickly rescue any contents and personal items that have been damaged by fire, smoke and water damage. Our goal is to start the recovery process as soon as possible. We determine the full extent of fire, smoke and soot damage and identify the impact of heat and smoke on your property’s structure, furniture and contents. We help you overcome your loss by clearly explaining the fire damage restoration process.

What To Do After Fire Damage

  • Wait to enter the property. Get confirmation from a building inspector or the fire department that your home is safe to re-enter.

  • After speaking to the fire department or other authorities, make us your FIRST CALL in an emergency – you will need professional help right away, so before you touch anything, contact the experts at SELECT Restoration Services.

  • If possible, open your windows to relieve positive pressure caused by heat and smoke. This will also get fresh air circulating to gradually push smoke out of the rooms.

  • Move pets and children to a smoke-free environment. Smoke can contain carcinogenic gases and toxins that can affect your health. You may need to make arrangements for temporary accommodation until the fire restoration is complete.

  • Empty your refrigerator and freezer if there is no power. Once empty, prop the door open to prevent odours from building up inside.

  • Keep an inventory of important documents and possessions you may need to replace. Take pictures of the damage to personal items and furniture. 

Safety Tips After Fire Damage

  • Only use electrical outlets, fuse panels or appliances if they have not been damaged by water or fire and if a licensed electrician says they are safe to use.

  • Do not force stuck, jammed, swollen or irregularly functioning doors.

  • Keep your distance from sagging floors or ceilings - they could collapse. A professional engineer, experienced contractor or building inspector should look at the damage immediately.

  • After you have an inventory of your damaged personal items, throw out all food and medicine that has been exposed to smoke or extreme heat.​ It is important to immediately dispose of these items so there is no confusion.

What You Should Leave to the Professionals

It is important to understand the risk to your health and safety even after the fire has been extinguished. Soot, smoke and dirty water left behind may contain odours and toxins that could affect your health. Use caution if you enter your property and if you touch any fire or smoke damaged items.  Professional fire damage restoration companies have proper personal protective equipment (PPE) and remediation equipment to safely and comfortably get the work done.

  • Don’t wipe walls, wood trim and furniture or any other soft goods or porous surfaces.

  • Don’t sit on or move upholstered furniture. Avoid walking on carpet or flooring damaged by soot.

  • Don’t consume any food product, including canned items, that were exposed to the extreme heat of the fire.

  • Don’t turn on HVAC systems like the furnace or air conditioner. Open your windows.

  • Stay away from compromised electrical devices like appliances, computers, stereos or televisions until they have been inspected by an electronics restoration professional.
