The procedure is:

1. Emergency Pre-Cleaning
This step is a critical one. We immediately work to protect your valuables: we clean contents and follow up with ozone and ultrasonic deodorization. A protective coating may need to be applied to protect valuable finishes from harmful caustic acids.
2. Smoke and Soot Removal
Fast and proper cleaning protects your home and belongings from further damages due to acidic, caustic soot. We quickly eliminate all signs of smoke and soot. Otherwise, if your items are not cleaned within a few four hours after a fire, some permanent damages may occur.
3. Smoke Odor Elimination
The primary method of odour removal is removing its source - smoke and soot. If necessary, additional methods, such as thermal fogging or ozonation, may be applied. Lastly, structural components may be sealed with lacquer.
4. Pack Out, Moving, and Storage
If required, we pack and store your furniture and personal items for the duration of the restoration and reconstruction.
5. Sanitization
A great deal of water used to fight fire leads to secondary damage, which happens due to microbial amplification. Prompt drying and aerating your furniture and personal belongings with commercial dryers and dehumidifiers may save lots of your valuable contents.
6. Contents restoration, if required
Furniture, clothing and electronics can often be restored with advanced restoration techniques using specialised equipment.
