Fire and Smoke Damage

Recovering from a fire can be a physically and mentally draining process. Often, the hardest part is knowing where to begin and who to contact. The restoration process cannot begin until authorities say the property is safe. When you have suffered a property loss due to a fire, National will work with you to promptly to assess the situation, handle your insurance claims and start the restoration and rebuilding process.

Fire damage can be costly, so it’s important to use an experienced cleanup and restoration company. After securing the property with tarping and board-ups, we begin the process by taking a detailed inventory of the building’s contents; providing documentation with photos, video, and an itemized property list. Then we help the residents or company seek alternative housing or office space. After surveying and documenting claims, we begin structural cleaning and debris removal.

Once the facility or home is cleaned, we’ll continue cleaning and removing any damaged items caused by smoke and soot.

National Restoration can help with the following fire situations:

A fire in your home or business can be catastrophic. Along with fire damage though, your property may also suffer from smoke and soot damage to the structure and possessions.

Other forms of smoke damage:

  • Cigarette and cigar smoke
  • Kitchen smoke damage
  • Closed fireplace flues
  • Electrical Fire Damage


  • Our trained technicians can evaluate the condition of your structure after the fire. We can determine if the smoke traveled through wall cavities (which is know as a “Push”).
  • We will evaluate your home or building and its contents to see what is salvageable, and do our best to save as much as possible.


A push results from the pressure a fire creates while burning. The pressure from the fire actually pushes the smoke into wall cavities, electrical and light outlets, and behind trim. When smoke penetrates these areas, the odor is extremely difficult to remove, especially if the smoke has penetrated the insulation. In this situation, only a professional restoration company can properly deodorize the structure and remove the odor.


In the event that your possessions and furnishings are damaged by smoke or water, it doesn’t necessarily mean they can’t be restored. At National Restoration, we have restored thousands of personal items after a fire or flood. We have state-of-the-art equipment that cleans and restores items to their pre-loss condition.
