Special considerations need to be taken for items such as clothing, upholstered furniture, and draperies. If these items are considered salvageable, we use commercial laundry and dry cleaning professionals who specialize in ridding these items of both residue and smoke odor.
Electronic equipment must also be handled with special attention. The corrosive nature of soot will quickly and irrevocably damage sensitive metals within an electronic component. Do not attempt to turn on any of these devices after a fire. A specialist will assess the damage and professionally restore any salvageable electronics in your home.
The odor of smoke, after a fire in your home or business, can be extremely persistent. Even a very small fire, which causes little other damage, can leave behind a significant smell of smoke. Simply masking odors with sprays or fogs is usually not enough to eradicate odors permanently. At Giordano Restoration, we have the experience and expertise to rid your space of the lingering odor of smoke. We employ specialized methods and equipment to eradicate smoke odors at a molecular level.
If your home or business requires extensive restoration or cleaning due to fire damage, it may be necessary to remove all of the contents. Giordano Restoration professionals will clean, wrap, pack, and inventory every salvageable item in your space. If your disaster requires a pack out, your contents will be stored appropriately, taking into account humidity and temperature control. Your inventory list will be organized and detailed to help you quickly get back to your normal life after restoration is complete.
A fire in your home or business can be one of the most devastating events you ever have to endure. Let our team help you get back to your pre-loss condition as quickly and efficiently as possible. We will do so with sensitivity and professionalism.
