Fire, Smoke, Soot. Mitigation is essential in fire and smoke damage.
Even after a fire has been put out, the damage continues. Many of the things in your home are made from synthetic materials, when burned, these synthetics create a variety of chemical reactions. For example, soot combined with moisture creates nitric acid, which is corrosive and can damage your belongings. Delays in cleanup may change the probability of a cost efficient restoration. Prolonged exposure to soot will allow further chemical damage to take place thus decreasing the level of success in restoring your possessions. Understanding the type of fire and residue produced from it is the first step in creating a plan to repair your property. Whether your property has wet smoke residue, dry smoke, fuel oil soot, protein residues or any other chemical compound we have the experience and equipment to properly identify, clean, and disinfect your property.

Master Clean adheres to the industry's three step process for removing smoke and odor damages. Each step is unique and most importantly necessary. Deviating from this process will often result in ineffective odor removal. Our IICRC certified technicians will help you identify the source of the odor, employ the proper cleaning method and eliminate unwanted odors caused from fire damage or any category of odors including nicotine, urine, stale air, mildew, pets, fireplace, smoke, etc.
This three step process involves the following:
Spray application to all vertical and horizontal surfaces of the effected area
Application of a dry or granular type odor counteract-ant
Thermal fogging, this final step utilizes a solvent based deodorizer that is heated and applied as a fog. By duplicating the heat and penetration characteristics of a fire, thermal fogging effectively elimates most odors.
Contents & possessions

All property ranging from antiques to everyday items such as upholstery, hard furniture, electronics, and collectibles will be treated with the utmost respect and care. In most cases personal property will be addressed on the premises.
