Fire Restoration

By calling Rainbow International® of Charleston immediately after your fire and smoke loss, we can salvage many damaged items in your home or office, from floors to china dishes.
Fire destroys in three ways: stains, odors, and corrosion. In the unfortunate event of a fire or smoke damamge, here's what you need to know:

Smoke Stains

Smoke deposits particles of incomplete combustion onto your building and contents. These particles will stain virtually every surface in your home or business. Common items stained by smoke damage include:

  • Painted walls
  • Tile
  • Carpet
  • Upholstery
  • Draperies
  • Leather

Solution: Time is of the essence. Rainbow International can remove most stains when called promptly after a fire. With an array of specific solutions and techniques, our technicians can successfully remove most smoke stains.

 

Odor

Smoke odor can affect every surface in a building. Most building materials & contents are porous and semi-porous materials which easily absorb smoke odor.

Solution: No single technique or product will remove smoke odor from a building. Thus, Rainbow International's trained technicians use a multitude of techniques to deodorize your building and contents, including:

  • Removing soot through air scrubbers and HEPA vacuums
  • Thermal-Fogging the structure
  • Applying an odor counteractive spray
  • Cleaning surfaces with specialized solutions
  • Encapsulation of smoke damaged surfaces

Corrosion

 

Smoke is highly acidic in nature. It can pit metal and glass within 24 hours. It will discolor fiberglass, porcelain and enamel. Common household fixtures destroyed by smoke corrosion include:

  • Faucets
  • Door Knobs
  • Light Fixtures
  • Sinks
  • Tubs
  • Window Panes

Solution: Rainbow International can neutralize the corrosive nature of smoke damage. Most items can be saved if work is begun soon after the fire.
