Water removal, drying and fire damage cleanup services

Firefighters use around 3,000 gallons of water to fight the typical house fire, which means all that moisture has to be removed before the restoration of your property can begin.

Furthermore all the debris left by the fire must also be removed and the right tools and cleaning solutions must be applied for thoroughly cleaning and deodorizing the entire property. This means your contractor has to be knowledgeable in several areas if they’re going to get the job done right.

We guide you through the entire process so you know exactly what to expect.

The sights and smells of fire damage are unmistakable. Smoke and soot find their way into every nook and cranny of a property and the odor is pervasive. Even after cleaning, the smell can linger, which is why a professional contractor needs to be involved.

At A City Suburban Service, we get to work quickly following a fire, removing all damaged structures, cleaning what’s salvageable and then sanitizing and deodorizing every bit of it. To the novice, it can seem like an impossible job and that the smell will forever remain. But when you have the right tools and the skills to use them, anything is possible.

Cleaning smoke and soot-damaged materials

Soot is the unattractive, smelly side effect of a fire. It’s remnants from burned furniture, flooring, wood, paint and everything else that has gone up in flames. It sticks to anything it touches and provides no shortage of unpleasant odors.

A City Suburban Service will identify the type of soot/smoke damage you have and utilize the most appropriate methods for getting rid of it. We’re experts at getting soot off walls, ceilings and floors. If you have plastics, textiles, finished and unfinished wood that are impacted by soot and smoke, we can completely clean it.

Our comprehensive approach to smoke odor removal

Not only is the residual smoke odor left behind by a fire unpleasant to breathe, it can also be a health concern. Even a seemingly sparkling cleanup following a fire can do little to alleviate the smell of smoke, which is why you need to partner with a contractor that knows how to completely remove it.

At A City Suburban Service, we have investigated many different techniques for removing smoke odor and utilized a variety of machinery, including air circulation and purification systems, as well as environmentally safe treatments engineered to rid the odor of smoke from structures.

Don’t hire a contractor that doesn’t include smoke odor removal services as part of the package. For a professional approach to your situation, contact A City Suburban Service at 312-945-0019 and schedule a site visit.
