A house fire can be a terrifying event for your family. We try to make the cleanup afterwards as painless as possible.

Here are some things to expect in the restoration of smoke damage in Springfield MO.
What Will Happen to Your Belongings?
After the extent of the damage is determined, our PuroClean Certified Restoration technicians will move or remove damaged items from your property. Items can be either restored or discarded, depending on the amount of damage that occurred. Restorable items can be restored on site or moved to a different location.
Protecting the Property
In a significant fire damage event, the roofs, walls and windows will most likely be damaged. This can compromise the security of the property. Your property will be boarded up and roof tarping will be added to secure it from intruders.
Removing Smoke and Soot Residue
Once the property is dried, our restoration team will clean the soot from surfaces, such as ceilings, floors, walls and other items using our specialized equipment. Our smoke damage restoration experts will also eliminate biological and chemical pollutants. Smoke odors will be removed using equipment such as foggers, ozone generators, and hydroxyl generators.
Cleaning and Sanitization
