Fire Damage Restoration
The Severity of House Fires
More than 350,000 house fires occur every year in the United States. Approximately half of all house fires start in the kitchen. When flames get out of control, your home can become ruined in minutes. Even if the flames are contained fairly quickly, smoke damage is a serious threat to you and your loved ones’ safety. In order for your home to recover from a fire, you need a fire restoration company at your side. While you E & L Star Construction Inc. may look like a remodeling company, we offer a full suite of restoration services, including fire and smoke.

Fire Restoration Process
When your home is impacted by a fire, you should contact a restoration company as soon as you can. The longer you wait for the damage to be cleaned up, the greater risk you put yourself, your family, and the rest of the property. The process our team follows is an industry standard designed to prevent further damage, remove any damaged materials, and prevent harm from any toxins or chemicals left behind. The process will vary in length based on the extent of the damage, which our team will assess once on-site.
Here is the overall process of our fire restoration services:
- Water Removal
- Soot, Ash, and Material Removal
- Cleaning and Sanitation
- Material Restoration
Why You Shouldn’t Clean Fire Damage Yourself
Soot and ash are harmful substances when breathed into our lungs. Even the smallest kind of exposure can lead to harmful health effects that last the short term or develop over the long term. Soot and ash are not the only harmful substances left behind after a fire. Materials impacted by the heat degrade and potentially release toxic substances themselves. Above all, you must be careful of the smoke damage. Smoke often causes more damage than fire because it reaches further than the flames. The smoke soaks into materials causing them to degrade and release substances and the harmful toxins of the smoke still soaked inside. Without the right equipment, you’ll breathe in these substances, which have drastic effects on your health.
