Chicago Fire Restoration

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 flame that later led to an uncontrollable disaster that was responsible for destroying 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 on fixing burned property in the Second City alone. With The Fire Restoration Team, 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 emergency cleanup contractors, 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 are invisible to the naked eye come from smoke/soot that can spread throughout every room and surface therein. It is a cause for real concern.

Therefore, 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.

Emergency Response Cleanup You Can Count On

We are dedicated to our clients’ wellbeing and peace of mind.

Besides repairing everything damaged by a fire, we also specialize in other disaster response 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.

We often notice that things seem to cost more for some reason, even when compared to surrounding areas like Kane or McHenry County. Our hard working men & women have vowed never to price gouge you just for living in Cook or Dupage County like the other guys!


How Much Does An Emergency Response Service Like Ours 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 is no “one-size fits all procedure.”

Depending on the severity of damage that your property endured, a more elaborative reconstruction job while using more sophisticated equipment may be required.

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 final price for the project is determined by the turnaround time you requested 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.

Please Don’t Wait to Get it Done

Fires emit flames that create smoke & leave odors that are either foul or dangerous. Although it is next to impossible to prevent walls from being destroyed, ceilings being discolored, and floors being burned (as it all happens within hours), allowing us to resolve it ASAP will prevent secondary effects like corroded metal occurring. Lastly, solutions like demolition won’t have to be necessary.

Toxic Soot & Building Materials

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:

Heart Disease

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.

If 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, we urge you to contact a specialist immediately for inspection and repair. Our team can eliminate these particles straight away.

If there is one takeaway, fire is an element that destroys everything in its path, no matter the size. On the other hand, it is dependent upon oxygen and fuel. Take any of those two agents out, and there is no fire. Hence, fire blankets are useful in putting out small fires.

Prevent all the headaches by having us salvage all your personal belongings. The last thing you need is for cherished items like instruments, photographs, books, and electronics to be permanently destroyed or burned to ash.
