Fire & Smoke Restoration
We spend most of our days going through typical routines, and it can be a pleasant change of pace when something out of the norm happens. However, if you’ve recently experienced a house fire, you and your entire family have been seriously thrown off your regular schedule. Not only do you have to deal with insurance adjustors and temporary living arrangements, but there’s still the question of what happens to your house once the flames are extinguished.
It’s important to consider that fire damage doesn’t end when the emergency personnel complete their job. The Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration Certification offers lots of valuable information, and they report that, when left unchecked for as little as a week, you’ll spend significantly more money in restoration. This is because residual smoke can continue to extend the damage, and you likely aren’t equipped with the skill, time, and equipment to face this daunting task on your own. The staff here at Edmonton Remediation Pros is here to take this worry off your shoulders. Locally owned and operated, we’re right there when you need us most.

Smoke Smell Removal
Until you’ve been involved in a house fire, you don’t consider the many small ways the aftermath of a situation of this magnitude affects your life. Long after the flames go out, there is a pungent, lingering odor that can be overwhelming. We don’t limit our services to the restoration of the physical aspects of your home’s structure. We have the latest tools available to also offer you ozone treatment for smoke damage. This method enables us to get to the root of the smell and significantly improve the olfactory quality of your home. Not only are we committed to getting you back to living in your home, but we want you to be able to do so comfortably.
Smoke and Fire Damage Health Concerns
The dangers aren’t eliminated once the fire goes out. According to the New York State Department of Health, there are a number of health effects you and those living in the home could subject yourselves to just by living in a home that has sustained smoke damage without the proper smoke smell removal and remediation services. Just a few of them you may encounter include:
- Heart and lung disease
- Respiratory problems
- Irritation of eyes and airways
- Chest pains and palpitations
- Shortness of breath
You only have one life to live, and it’s too short for you to experience it at such a low quality level. Our company can help you remove this harmful presence from your home so you can move on with your life without the worry.

Precautions to Take if You Have Fire/Smoke Damage
It’s important to understand that there are a number of dangers in a home that has sustained fire damage. Not only did the blaze compromise the structural stability of the home, but the firefighting efforts can cause even further dangers. We recommend that you don’t re-enter the home until you’ve been cleared by an authority that it’s safe to do so. A few other precautions we would strongly encourage you to take while you wait for the arrival of one of our helpful contractors include:
- Ensure utilities are either safe to use or disconnected.
- If you need to leave the property, contact your local police department to let them know the area will be unoccupied.
- If you have children or pets, it may be in your best interest to see if a friend or family member can look after them while you get everything sorted out to avoid injury.
You have already suffered enough, and we make it our goal to ensure you can start getting back on your feet. In the meantime, however, we value your safety, and we can help by offering additional tips during the course of the remediation process that could save your life.
