It’s a little odd talking to someone about a residential fire disaster if they’ve never experienced one. If you haven’t, you’re certainly fortunate, but we want you to know they can happen to anyone in Sandwich, IL. In those moments of emotion, confusion, and stress, try to remember what you read here. Stay safe and calm, and after you’ve called the fire department and your insurance company, call ServiceMaster Restoration and Cleaning Services by Skip. When it comes to fire disaster damage repair and restoration, we’re your best choice in Sandwich, IL.
What’s the difference between repair and restoration? Repair means simply fixing what’s broken to make it functional again. Restoration, however, goes much further. It means to make an object, a piece of furniture, or an entire room look at least as good as it did before the disaster, and many times even better.
Our fire damage restoration process begins with water removal if there’s standing water left from the firefighting efforts, emergency pre-cleaning, debris cleanup, and tarping and board up services if required. We’ll then focus on content cleaning which means working on the soot-covered surfaces in the home or on contents that we pack out. We often remove contents to a safe storage location so we can work unimpeded on those items in a special, temperature controlled space. We restore such specialty items as jewelry and art, antiques, electronic equipment, machinery, rare books and documents, and photographs.
While that’s going on, we’ll be working on the walls and ceilings the fire has damaged. If needed, that can extend to repairing or restoring woodwork, cabinetry, fixtures, and surfaces from brass to glass to marble. Finally, we’ll do upholstery cleaning on furniture and window treatments and completely deodorize the residence.
In other words, we do complete residential fire restoration, simplify the process for you, and guarantee the quality of all the work. You can’t do better than that, and we hope you remember ServiceMaster Restoration and Cleaning Services by Skip when the unlikely fire disaster happens to your home in Sandwich, IL.
