Fire and Smoke Damage


Fire awareness is one of the top things to ensure your family's safety. Knowing how to protect your family before a fire also means knowing what can happen if a fire does burn your home. Not all things that burn are cleaned up the same way. 

Protein Fire
  • Food from the oven or stove has burned, leaving strong burnt food odors and smoke residue on contents and surfaces.
Complex Fire
  • Multiple natural and synthetic items inside your home have burned causing black smoke residue on contents and surfaces and synthetic smoke odors. Here, emergency corrosion mitigation is needed to protect at-risk surfaces.
Natural Fire
  • Trees, shrubs and bushes have burned and smoke has penetrated the structure from outside, so smoke residue and odor are present.
Furnace Malfunction
  • Heating appliances such as oil-fired furnaces have malfunctioned and caused smoke to be distributed throughout the property.

    ServiceMaster is one of the best mots honest businesses in town. After my Dad experienced a groundwater flood in the bottom level of his house from the above-average rainfall in 2018, we gave Chad and his team a call. They were booked to the gills with clients who were experiencing similar issues, but they made time to come out and look, help us confirm the issue, and get us set up with dehumidifiers and air movers to dry things up. They were honest about their prices and flexible about payment, super responsive and just good down-to-earth WNC kind of people. Thanks so much ServiceMaster team!
