A fire is one of the most destructive disasters that can occur within a home or building as it can cause extensive damage from the flames and smoke and put the health and safety of those within the building at serious risk. The fire itself can cause significant damage from charring and the corrosive byproducts and soot from the smoke can spread beyond the area affected by the fire to cause tarnishing and etching which can become permanent without quick enough restoration.

“A client/friend’s house caught fire the other day and every time this happens, it is always a very traumatic experience. The devastation on their faces and their be-wilderness is a very common reaction. The feeling of loss and being lost is understandable, so it is during these occasions where I have to be there for them.
The first thing I did was to calm them down and called Servicemaster. They do mostly restoration and clean up after a fire/flood/water damage etc. They are not general contractors. They only clean up, restore, and house your personal belongings at their storage facility. They will store it there until the house is back to live able condition. Best of all……….the insurance company will pay for it.
They can usually get to a place within 3 hours of the loss. They are very efficient.”
