Fire damage is one of the most traumatic disaster occurrences that a property owner can face. If your property has been affected by smoke or fire, ProRestore DKI can assist you with handling your total property and contents restoration. Most fires leave a small portion of the home or business charred and destroyed, and a much larger portion damaged by soot, water and odor. ProRestore DKI has the ability to quickly and efficiently restore fire damaged structures to their original pre-loss condition.
ProRestore DKI contractors have developed effective cleaning techniques, and employ the use of specialized restoration chemicals, that are capable of removing smoke stains, flood debris, and other damage caused by fire and water on various types of surfaces, and trained in the correct cleaning techniques that will remove soot coatings. With the use of the most up-to-date training and techniques available, these practices ensure that soot and other damage won't become permanently embedded in the structure.
ProRestore DKI contractors work with our clients as a team to insure that every property is returned to its pre-loss condition as quickly and efficiently as possible.
