            Having a fire in your home is one of the most disturbing, unsettling things that can happen to a homeowner.  After double checking to be sure everyone is safe and sound, there is the daunting task of dealing with the aftereffects of the fire—the destruction, smell, smoke, and general mess.  The smoke and soot must be removed before cleaning and deodorizing can begin.  It will usually save time and money to consult an expert in fire restoration and remediation after it’s safe to reenter.  New technology allows professionals to reclaim items you may have felt were lost, and there is a smaller chance that additional damage will be done by failed attempts at cleanup.
