Fire Damage Repair and Restoration

Fires produce different types of soot depending on the types of material that burn. Wood and paper create a gray, light soot like what you see in a campfire. Most other types of materials produce a wet, black, acrid smelling soot due to the burning of petroleum-based products.

Different soot require different cleaning and deodorization methods. Our crews are trained to identify the different cleaning methods and equipment to be used on the different cleaning needs of each individual fire. SERVPRO of Elgin/Northwest Kane County has the equipment to clean your Elgin home after a fire as well as the content and clothing within your house. One restoration company to do it all!!
