While you may be tempted to start the cleaning process yourself, fire restoration is often a job best left to the professionals. Soot, the remnants of a fire, can be filled with acids, chemicals, metals, and other hazardous materials. If not handled properly, the tiny toxins can easily become airborne and inhaled in the lungs. Working with fire restoration professionals can help ensure the safety of you, your family, and your home, while providing the thorough cleaning and odor-removing process needed to return to normal life.
