Once the fire is out, we get you back in.

Fire Restoration

Having your home or business damaged by fire is a traumatizing experience. After the immediate stress of escaping the fire, you may be left with a damaged and uninhabitable structure.

Clean-Scene's expertise can restore your home back to its pre-loss state, and get your life back to normal. Our team is certified and educated in the latest techniques for content removal and cleaning, deodorizing, and structure cleaning and restoration.

The most obvious damage from fire is the destruction of structures and possessions and smoke contamination of remaining items. After the fire is out, other effects become evident. Water damage from fire suppression can be extensive, and may lead to mold or corrosion.

Common Questions

  • What type of fire did I have?

    Many people don't know this but fires are classified into 3 groups and each group is handled differently.
    - Protein Fires include stove-top grease fires, burned or charred meat, or most fires where living tissue or hair proteins are involved. Unlike other types of fires, these leave little visible smoke residue.
    - Wood and Paper Fires include attic fires, fireplace puff-backs, most trash can fires and general home fires where the wood structure is mainly involved.
    - Synthetic Fires include fires that involve carpeting and upholstered furnishings, electrical fires and fires where plastic materials have been burnt.

  • Are there different types of smoke?

    To most people, smoke is smoke. But there is actually different types of smoke that determine the type of cleanup that needs to be done.
    - Wet Smoke comes from low heat and smoldering fires. It has a pungent odour and is sticky and smeary. These are the most difficult to clean.
    - Dry Smoke comes from a fast burning, high temperature fire.
    - Protein Smoke is virtually invisible. It discolors paints and varnishes. It has an extremely pungent odour.
    - Fuel Oil Soot is a type of smoke caused by furnace puff backs
    - Other types of smoke include tear gas, finger print powder and fire extinquisher residue.
