More importantly, we know where to begin.

We guarantee a fast and organized approach:

Smoke Odor Removal

Smoke odor and residue removal requires a careful, professional response. Our successful methods are proven and effective. Our fire restoration techniques help:

  • Prevent corrosion
  • Detoxify hazardous chemicals/carcinogens
  • Decontaminate and deodorize using thermal fogging

Smoke and soot residues will cover nearly every surface in your property and will even travel to areas not directly affected by the fire. We provide structural cleaning of surfaces such as walls, ceilings, and floors as well as permanent cabinet and light fixtures. We employ the following methods to remove smoke and soot residues to clean your structure:

  • Dry chemical sponging absorbs harmful soot and residues prior to wet cleaning.
  • Wet cleaning lifts heavier soils as well as smoke and odors.
  • Soda blasting is a deep cleaning method used in place of chemicals to remove odors from fire damage.

Fire Damage Reconstruction

Reconstruction is based on our initial assessment and planning process. We offer the highest level of reconstruction and restoration services to completely restore your property back to its pre-loss condition or better. TCM Restoration & Cleaning is there from start to finish, ensuring your property is restored as quickly as possible without sacrificing quality.

What to do after a fire

It is natural to want to begin to clean up and move forward. There are actions that are helpful to you and some that are actually more damaging to your situation. Please read the guidelines below to help you determine your next steps.

Things TO DO after a fire:

  • Call a licensed professional to secure/board up your property from further damage.
  • If renting, immediately call your landlord.
  • Call your insurance company to report a claim and check your policy. TCM can be your advocate and plays a beneficial role with insurance companies.
  • Contact a trusted restoration contractor, this may or may not be the same company that secured/boarded up the property.
  • Open some windows to ventilate the property, but consider weather conditions (rain, freezing temperatures).
  • Discard all foods where soot is found or foods that were exposed to heat from the fire.
  • Empty freezer and refrigerator completely. If electricity is off, prop open doors using a rolled up towel.

DO NOT do these things after a fire:

  • Wipe or wash walls, ceilings, carpeted or hard floors or any other surfaces. Soot and ash contain chemicals that can be dangerous to your health and should be removed carefully by a professional.
  • Use affected electronics including TVs, radios/stereos, etc. until cleaned and checked.
  • Use affected upholstered furniture, if possible.
  • Clean affected clothing with ordinary cleaning products or dry-cleaning.
  • Consume exposed food, including canned food, which has been affected by excessive heat.
