Why PuroClean Leads the Way in Fire and Smoke Remediation

Fire ripping through your home is devastating, but cleaning up after a fire can be even more emotionally draining. However, homeowners need to move fast to minimize damage; the longer you wait to start smoke remediation, the worse the damage can become.

That’s why PuroClean’s property damage specialists are ready to spring into action in communities across North America when fire strikes. Our franchise owners are ready 24 hours a day, seven days a week, to mitigate fire damage and save homeowners money in the long run. They’re thorough, diligent and sensitive to our clients’ needs. Many of our franchise owners are former firefighters and first responders — jobs that have equipped them to deal with the aftermath of tragedies. They work to restore whatever items they can, either on-site or at a different location, which can save homeowners money and, more importantly, memories.

Our franchise owners strive to keep homeowners informed through every step of the restoration process and they’re committed to treating their clients’ property with respect. Fire damage restoration services PuroClean offers include:

  • Smoke odor removal and professional deodorization
  • Emergency cleaning and sanitation
  • Pack-outs and contents cleaning
  • Temporary protection/board-up
  • Carpet and pad removal
  • Puff-back cleaning

Our Fire and Smoke Remediation Process

As a leading fire and water restoration franchise in both the United States and Canada, PuroClean has developed an extensive process for remediating smoke and fire damage:

    1. Assessing the degree of damage: Technicians inspect the property and determine the extent of visible and hidden damage both from the fire itself and the water used to put it out. 
    2. Handling of contents: Technicians move or remove items from the property. Depending on the damage suffered, some items may need to be discarded, while others can be restored.
    3. Protecting the property: Boarding up windows and roof-trapping keep the property secure from intruders.
    4. Water removal and drying: The next step is removing excess water that was used to extinguish the fire and drying the property to prevent further moisture damage.
    5. Removing smoke and soot residue: Smoke and soot residue can remain on ceilings, floors and walls. Technicians use specialized equipment to clean up the soot, remove smoke odors and eliminate biological and chemical pollutants.
    6. Cleaning and sanitization: With the soot gone, technicians can move on to removing dust, debris and other residue from items and surfaces. The entire property is also thoroughly sanitized.
  • Property reconstruction*: Our restoration teams work to get the property back to the condition it was in before the fire. This can involve fresh paint, new drywall, new carpets and other remodeling. (*Not all PuroClean offices offer reconstruction services.)
