It’s the phone call or reality that no business owner or homeowner ever wants to get.
Fire. Smoke. Soot.
Where do you even begin with the restoration of your property and life after such a devastating and overwhelming event?
After a structure fire, most home and business owners are consumed with cleaning up the visible debris, failing to realize the bigger problem: soot and smoke damage. Soot and smoke particles that are released by fires can permeate and settle into flooring, seep into walls, and accumulate in ceilings and attics.
Soot and smoke can cause corrosion and discoloration to almost any surface including: plastic; fiberglass; metal; fibers, including carpeting, upholstery, and clothing; wood; and vinyl. In addition, soot and smoke that lingers behind walls and inside ceilings is overpowering and toxic.

It is rapidly approaching one of the most dangerous times of the year for home related fires. Try and avoid needing restoration services by considering these statistics and safety recommendations:
Recently, J&R Contracting heard about a house fire affecting a neighbor in our backyard. We sent a services responder over to see if we could help with restoration. When the J&R employee arrived, the fire department was on scene; however, the homeowners had been unable to reach their insurance agent and were unsure about how to proceed to salvage their possessions. Their most prized possessions were the thousands of photographs of their grandchildren and family members, and they were despondent thinking they were lost forever.
