Fire & Smoke Damage Restoration

Fires can completely turn your life upside down

At First General we are very much aware of the stresses related to recovering from the damage of a fire in your home or place of business. Quick and competent responses are critical to getting your job done right and on time.

Smoke damage continues to penetrate and attack exposed surfaces impacting the environment until cleaned with appropriate organic cleaning solutions. Boarding up of unprotected openings prevents unlawful entry and further damage. Once the site is stable and safe, a thorough scope of smoke damage repairs can be generated for approval by all parties, followed by the initiation of restoration. Only experienced fire damage and smoke damage restoration experts can eradicate any residual smoke odor and return the property to its pristine condition. First General has the network of restoration experts to complete all initial, ongoing and final stabilization of the property’s ambient indoor air quality levels and the odor content of its materials. We commit to a two hour response time under normal circumstances and will use sufficient cleaning resources to complete stabilization in the shortest period possible.
