Fire Damage Restoration Chicago
Whether you are from the Windy City or not, you probably are familiar with the Great Chicago Fire. Mrs. O’Leary’s cow supposedly knocked over a lantern that started a blaze that later grew to incinerate most of downtown.
Thankfully, these situations rarely rise to this level of extremity. However, that doesn’t mean there is any danger involved because millions of dollars are spent every year fixing burned property in the Second City alone.
With The Fire Restoration Team (TFRT), the amount of unnecessary money spent is zero.
Why You Need TFRT as Your Chicago Fire Restoration
Having a property engulfed in flames is one of the worst things that can happen in one’s life. As damage cleanup experts, we understand that it often involves a property that endures structural and cosmetic damage, making it more than unsightly and hazardous to live or work in. Powdery particles that come in all shapes & sizes (especially microscopic ones) come from smoke/soot that can spread throughout every room and surface therein. It is a cause for real concern.
Therefore, our crew at The Fire Restoration Team is here to help mitigate permanent damage from the fire, such as repainting walls, refinishing wooden surfaces, and cleaning up items.
All of this is taken care of right away. Procrastinating can only prolong exposure that later causes permanent staining within hours. Moreover, there would be an increase in the likelihood that the after-effects outweigh the initial damage done to possessions such as bookshelves, trophies, appliances, and furniture.
Rebuilding After a Fire With Us
Our top priority is helping you get through this mess. The last thing you need is financial stress that many of our competitors are often guilty of transmitting to their clients.
Besides repairing everything damaged by a fire, we also are certified to handle other disaster response projects throughout Chicagoland:
We have seen everything as our augmented experience spans at least a few decades. With TFRT, you will enjoy a courteous and professional customer service experience. Rest assured that we will supersede your expectations by restoring your property in a timely and orderly manner.
Whether it’d be an apartment building on Halsted Street or a multi-million dollar mansion in Highland Park, TFRT serves in reconstructing any home in Northeastern Illinois. As hinted earlier, we have the equipment and experience to transition to restoring a commercial and industrial property entirely. If your factory or office experienced any level of fire damage, count on us to respond 24/7.
After experiencing a traumatic event like fire or floods, there’s no doubt that searching around for the “right” contractors within the city limits isn’t the direction many of you may take. Moreover, we build our digital presence so that you can easily find & request us. Our due diligent technicians, who are working onsite and remotely, promise never to upcharge you for being in affluent areas like the Gold Coast or Lakeview. Hands down, we are transparent & want to make sure we deliver what you need.
How Much Does Fire Damage Repair Cost?
That’s a great question. There is no straightforward answer. However, once hired, TFRT will board up & secure your property to prevent further damage or burglars from breaking in and stealing your valuables. Afterward, we’d extract water, deodorize your home, and restore it to its original condition.
Every case is different. The damages one property may be small compared to another, or one apartment is made of toxic building material while another isn’t. The point is that the only way to assess the damage accurately is to have a repair cost performed by a certified and experienced professional team like ourselves as we cater to every scenario; there’s no “one-size fits all procedure.”
More drastic steps will be taken if there is no chance of restoring any part of your property completely. On top of that, you will be the first to know whether it is more economical to repair or rebuild. We will work with your insurance to make sure you save the most money, even if you don’t have fire damage insurance.
The good news is that our contractors get the job done right at no extra charges nor obligation. If board-up or full inspection is required, there are additional costs associated with that. However, the total cost of our services in any project does not translate. Every reparation process is unique. We carefully calculate it by using things such as requested turnaround time and the level of destruction.
It wouldn’t be fair to promise a specific fee for inspection, testing, or clean up. However, TFRT can guarantee that we will be there by your side throughout the entire process.
When In Doubt Act Fast
As is true with all fires, smoke contributes to many property owners’ plight from these nightmarish events. Simultaneously, commonly pungent odors that are also harmful to the human body develop & stay unless each room & space is cleaned thoroughly. Even though some damage is inevitable, it certainly can be reconstructed.
Discolored ceilings & burned tiles are a few of the things we have dealt with. On top of that, when our technicians arrive & restore your damaged property ASAP, this proactivity prevents secondary effects like corroded metal from occurring. Ultimately, solutions like demolition won’t have to be necessary.
Soot vs Smoke
Whether you hear the term “smoke damage” or “soot,” these outcomes come hand in hand in every uncontrollable fire.
Fire and smoke create toxins like soot and polycyclic hydrocarbons. Soot is a black powdery substance that comes from a burned organic material (e.g., wood). Since these particles can be small, they often are airborne and aren’t filtered by our respiratory system. Moreover, soot particles can enter the body and contaminate the lungs and bloodstreams, leading to the following:
Home service professionals like TFRT come and vacuum this hazardous substance with air scrubbers, high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filter, and vacuum to guarantee a toxic-free environment in your home or business.
On top of that, fire damage can exacerbate the harmful impact building materials like asbestos, and lead paint have on occupants living or working within those structures. Therefore, request TFRT immediately as we bundle this asbestos abatement in our services.
Suppose you see or smell soot or odors caused by smoke or suspect that fine materials, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), and gases like carbon monoxide are lingering after the incident. In that case, we urge you to contact a specialist immediately for inspection and repair. Our team can eliminate these particles straight away.
