Wildfire Prep and Cleanup
24 HR Wildfire Restoration, Cleanup, & Repairs
Your Wildfire Damage Restoration Company
Unfortunately, Oregon is no stranger to the dangers presented by wildfires. Changing weather patterns can shift the direction of a wildfire without warning, sending flames and smoke uncomfortably close to your property. Regardless of whether the blaze burns the property or doesn’t, there are always residual effects, including a nuisance smoke smell and charred debris. These aspects of a wildfire are an unwelcome reminder of the surrounding destruction, in addition to being significant health hazards. This is why ServiceMaster Restore hopes to educate our clients about the basics of wildfire prep and cleanup.
ServiceMaster Restore also recognizes that sometimes the unthinkable happens. A wildfire can strike your home no matter how much preparation you do. In these instances, our compassionate team is here to ease your stress and get you back in your home with wildfire damage restoration, emergency wildfire boardup services, wildfire smoke damage cleaning and deodorization, and wildfire damage repairs.

Seeking Wildfire Damage Restoration Services After a Wildfire
Wildfire Damage Restoration
Once the fire has been put out, you’ll want to call your insurance company and ServiceMaster Restore. We’ll immediately dispatch a trained technician to evaluate the extent and severity of the wildfire damage. An accurate estimate and scope of work are developed and sent to your insurance adjuster. Emergency board up is the next step, and prevents vandals, animals, and the elements from accessing the home. Should there be any water damage from firefighting efforts, we’ll immediately begin water extraction and drying. We remove the contents of your home for safe keeping and cleaning. To minimize the spreading of smoke, the affected area is contained. Our restoration specialists clean every part of the structure including ceilings, walls, light fixtures, windows, doors, and duct-work.
Wildfire Smoke Damage Cleaning
Depending on the items that were burned in the fire, there will be a considerable and often overwhelming odor that penetrates every permeable surface in your home or business. Things like drapes, carpets and upholstery are severely affected by smoke odor, but also walls and ceilings will have to be treated and deodorized before your property will be deemed habitable. Our smoke odor experts use a variety of odor removal methods and will work with you until you are satisfied that no traces of smoke odor remain. Every emergency disaster is unique, including widespread wildfires. At ServiceMaster Restore, we know that time is of the essence and guarantee quick, accurate estimates. Our compassionate experts are here to help you each step of the way. Call us today for fire restoration and smoke damage cleaning.
