Up in smoke? Not if we have anything to do about it.
Fire can completely consume and destroy items, creating a total-loss situation. However, when items are recoverable, smoke and heat damage become the major issues.
Smoke will stain and discolor an item by leaving a fine layer of soot and ash. Soot can be very acidic and can be particularly challenging to clean. In addition to our ability to clean soot damage, we also use our proprietary techniques to remove any residual smoke odor left behind.
Heat is a greater concern usually resulting in structural damage to an item. For example, within a painting, it can cause brittleness, changes in pigment and a blistered surface.
Our team of professionals understands the importance of the careful and deliberate handling of your damaged piece to ensure the efficient, and cost effective processing of your item.
