When it comes to natural disasters, fires are the most feared as they cause devastating damage in just a few minutes. A fire in your home or business not only puts you and others in immediate danger, but it also has the potential to destroy everything you have worked. Evacuating the home or building and calling the fire department are the most important things you can do in the event of a fire. However, putting out the fire does not stop the spread of the damage as the lingering smoke, soot, and corrosive byproducts can cause an extensive amount of secondary damage unless professional disaster restoration takes place.

Our expert technicians use state-of-the-art equipment and techniques to halt the spread of hazardous byproducts and stabilize structural damage effectively. We then develop a comprehensive plan to clean and restore your property to its pre-fire condition.

Damage from Fire and Smoke

The sight of a fire in your home or building is terrifying, which is why it is a huge relief to have the fire put out. What many people do not realize, however, is that your property is still vulnerable to further damage from smoke, soot, and corrosive byproducts after the fire is out. The intense heat from the fire causes synthetic materials to create smoke and soot that will badly burn and discolor any surfaces or materials they affect.

Smoke and soot are just as destructive after a fire as the soot can cause tarnishing and etching similar to other corrosive byproducts, and the smoke can get absorbed in various building materials and leave a lingering odor. If the materials affected by the smoke and soot are not properly cleaned and restored right away, they may sustain permanent damage.

Fire Damage Restoration FAQs

Without proper fire damage restoration, smoke odor will occasionally return in humid environments. Enhancing air circulation helps prevent odor from becoming trapped in your home’s structural components, which can cause health issues for residents. Thorough cleaning with detergents, brushes, and other tools can address the affected areas. However, the best solution is to hire a fire damage restoration expert to completely remove the smoke odor and prevent its recurrence.

Fires can occur unexpectedly and for various reasons, such as:

  • Cooking incidents
  • Electrical defects
  • Natural causes
  • Household appliances
  • Nearby areas

During the initial inspection, fire damage repair experts ensure that all power sources and switches are turned off and disconnected. The appliances and electrical equipment, as well as flammable fabrics and surfaces, are expected to sustain significant damage. The fire damage restoration experts are capable of removing soot, and smoke odor, and restoring the property to its pre-damaged state with their skills, experience, and advanced equipment.

  • “Great restoration company!!! This is an exceptionally professional, knowledgeable company. I was frantic and completely lost when my husband discovered that our basement was flooded. I called at lease six restoration companies. The average appointment was a week out or more. My insurance company told me to do everything to prevent further damage but they could not authorize a contractor payment until I was assigned an adjuster. I found this company on my insurance’s website and they were able to be at my house in a very short period of time. They came prepared and ready to work. Mr. Johnson told me exactly what to expect through the entire process from his company. I signed a contract to get the water extracted immediately. The insurance inspector came while this company was working on the first day. Mr. Johnson and the adjuster worked independently in harmony for each of their respective areas of expertise. I highly recommend this company. I can’t say enough about the high quality of service that was provided. All of the workers were professional and focused as well as easy to approach. The pink van showed intentional branding and purposeful direct advertising. All the Best. Mrs. M Upper Marlboro”

  • “I have had nothing but a great experience with Top to Bottom. Fred and his team came in on an holiday and quickly addressed my water issues. They worked with me every step of the way and were totally transparent throughout the process. Would highly recommend them to anyone needing water mitigation or renovation services.”

    Daniel Gonzales, Happy Customer

  • “Phenomenal! Top To Bottom is highly exceptional from the quality of work to professionalism. The water heater went up in my house and flooded the entire basement. I called the company, the first thing Mr. Fred did was walked me through the insurance process, as this was my first time dealing with a flood and filing an insurance claim, his assistance put me at ease. The team arrived at 1am for the water damage restoration. Mr. Fred and his son went above and beyond to make a difficult situation extremely easy. They were available and responsive with the insurance company requests and needs. The renovation for the basement took about 3 weeks as there were 4 rooms that needed to be restored. They were in consistent communication with me every step of the way either by phone or email. After every room was complete Mr. Fred’s son would come, review what the contractors completed to ensure we were satisfied with the job. You can’t ask for better quality and professionalism. The basement looks better now than it did before the water damage. Again this company and works are Phenomenal! I will definitely refer there services to family and friends. Look out for the Pink van and Pink sheets!”
