FIRE & SMOKE
When the Unthinkable Happens
You may be in shock from the initial devastation of a fire, but it is important to know that at AMFW we follow the proper steps to achieve a complete fire restoration. The process of fire restoration can be very involved. From clean up to structural restoration we will bring you back to pre-loss conditions quicker, safer, and more cost effectively than other restoration companies.
Immediacy is the Key
The first step in fire restoration is to clean up as much of the area as possible, as soon as possible. If not immediately cleaned, soot residue and permanent damage can incur. Within minutes of fire damage, discoloring of appliances may occur. After a few hours, acid, a by-product of fire, will stain many areas of your home. Walls will become discolored permanently and items will begin to rust due to the acid residue after just a couple of days. If allowed to continue, the acid left behind can permanently damage your home's structure, furnishings and personal items. For these reasons it is crucial that the clean up process starts as soon as possible. Our 24/7 emergency service allows us to get to your home or business within minutes of receiving your call for help to start the process immediately, eliminating the possibility of further damage.
