What is Fire Restoration?

Fire restoration is a process that begins as soon as it is safe to do so. Smoke from a house fire is an acidic byproduct of fire and can stain walls cabinets, ceilings, and floors. Often times the act of putting the fire out can cause an equal amount of damage in the form of water, that is why it is important that fire restoration deals with all the elements of the disaster: flame, heat, smoke, and water.
