Fire Damage Restoration, Re-construction and help for victims of
ire and Water disasters in the Illinois area.


For the victims caught up in or affected by a fire, whether at home or work, it can be one of the most traumatizing and frightening experiences. The speed and ferocity of a fire makes you feel truly vulnerable and can cause huge amounts of damage and loss to property.

The damage caused by fires doesn’t end when the flames have been extinguished. When dealing with fire damage, families often see their prized possessions and the roof over their heads destroyed, leaving them searching for a safe place to shelter. Meanwhile, businesses can find themselves in financial struggles and unable to trade. Prompt fire damage restoration can hold the key to limiting the emotional and financial struggles caused by a fire.

According to the latest numbers from the National Fire Protection Association, a structure fire is reported every 65 seconds. When the alarm sounds, emergency responders and fire departments answer the call for help with quick and decisive action. When the smoke clears, MOLD SQUAD RESTORATION'S - Fire Restoration Services Team remains ready to help with the same rapid response – 24-hours a day, 365 days a year.


Fire Damage Restoration?

The first 24 to 48 hours after fire damage are known as the “golden hours” of recovery. An effective emergency response that quickly stabilizes the facility ensures the recovery of as much property as possible. The acidic soot and smoke damage that is often produced in fires accelerates the deterioration and corrosion of building components and vital assets. To compound the problem, fires are most frequently extinguished with dry chemicals or water. Plus, the toxic smoke odor left behind must be neutralized and deodorized.

The fire damage restoration process includes mitigating damage, providing smoke damage cleanup and water restoration as quickly as possible after the damage first occurs.  Beyond the visible structural damage, contents inside the structure must be evaluated for recovery based on a number of factors including:

  • Replacement Cost vs. Restoration Cost

  • Effect of Smoke and Heat

  • Loss of Use

  • Loss of Value

  • Decreased Life Expectancy

  • Sentimental Value

Mold Squad Restoration's fire restoration services can include emergency board-up, demolition, Soot Removal Film application, deodorization to mitigate smoke odors, and complete reconstruction.

What is Fire Damage Restoration?

A fire in a home or business is an absolute nightmare to deal with because the damage is extensive and extremely disruptive to your life.  You may feel a sense of relief once the fire is put out and everyone is safe, but the damage is only beginning.  Fires create corrosive byproducts when they burn synthetic materials and these byproducts, along with soot and smoke, cause considerable damage to surfaces and furnishings.  This damage often spreads into areas that the fire itself did not reach, which is why you must begin the fire damage restoration as soon as the fire department clears your property.

Hopefully you have not had to deal with significant fire damage in your home so you may be wondering, what is fire damage restoration?  Fire damage restoration is the process in which damage caused by a fire, smoke, and corrosive byproducts is repaired and restored.  This process includes removing corrosion from surfaces and furnishings caused by soot and other byproducts as well as odors from smoke.  Fire damage restoration is a complex process that consists of the following steps:

Inspecting the Damage

Our Fire damage restoration professionals start by thoroughly assessing the property to take note of the damage caused by fire, smoke, and soot.  They also look for any water damage that occurs when the fire is extinguished.  Once the technicians fully assess the damage, they begin the restoration process.



Content Cleaning and Removal

Content Cleaning and Pack-out Services can be very useful for your home or business.

Items that have been damaged such as furniture, appliances, and personal belongings will be removed from the home.  Our technicians can help determine if a particular object can be saved or if it has been damaged beyond repair.  Any items that can be saved are packed out and taken to an off-site facility where they can be thoroughly cleaned and restored.

Property Stabilization

A house fire causes significant damage to the structural core and roof of a home, which leaves it unstable and vulnerable to further damage from the weather or vandalism.  Our Fire damage restoration professionals can secure your home with roof tarping and board up services to ensure that it is stabilized during the restoration process.

Water Damage Restoration and Drying

After securing the property, our water damage cleanup specialists remove water from putting out the fire and restore any resulting damage.  They then dry the affected areas using drying and dehumidification equipment to prevent mold growth and other issues.




Soot and Smoke Damage Restoration

Smoke and soot removal

In this stage of the restoration, our technicians remove tarnishing caused by soot and corrosive byproducts using powerful cleaning products.  They can remove soot from the walls, ceiling, countertops, and other surfaces and objects throughout your home.  Smoke odor removal is also part of this stage as the technicians will use advanced equipment such as hydroxyl technology and ozone generators to remove the odor.

Thorough Cleaning and Disinfection

Once the majority of the damage from the water, fire, and soot is taken care of, our fire damage technicians will completely clean and disinfect your entire home.  The cleaning includes structural elements, furnishings, appliances, and other items covered in dust, debris, or residue.

Final Restoration

The last stage of the fire damage restoration process involves repair work to get your home back to its original condition.  This includes reconstruction of damaged structural elements, remodeling, painting, and installation of new drywall, flooring, or carpeting.  Our damage restoration company offers full reconstruction services.

If your home is ever damaged by a fire, remember to call Mold Squad Restoration and start the fire damage restoration process as soon as the fire department will allow it.  Our Fire damage repair professionals are highly trained and can effectively restore your home and salvage objects affected by the fire or soot.  The process described above has been proven to get your home back to its original condition after sustaining damage in a fire.
