Fire and smoke can cause a tremendous amount of damage to your building, belongings, and more. If you spot a fire on your property, you should first dial 911 and begin evacuation procedures. After everybody is safe, you should contact us here at ServiceMaster by Restoration Contractors about our fire and smoke damage restoration services.
We do everything possible to restore homes and businesses, as well as their contents, in Auburn, IN, as efficiently and effectively as possible.
The Importance of an Emergency Response
While the destructive capabilities of fire are well known, the damaging potential of smoke and soot is often understated. Not many property owners are mindful of the fact that smoke, soot, and other harmful byproducts released by the fire can lead to corrosion, etching, discoloration, and permanent odors in materials throughout your building (even in areas that were not affected by the fire itself).
At ServiceMaster by Restoration Contractors, our technicians fully understand these behaviors, and work swiftly to prevent them. We offer 24-hour availability to address these risks because minutes can make a big difference in terms of restoration quality.
