Smoke And Fire Damage Restoration

Smoke and fire damage restoration is no simple process and requires an entire team of professionals to carry out the task. Eco Pro Restoration of Baltimore can handle all of your restoration problems and assist in returning the affected area to it’s previous condition. The professionals at Eco Pro are well trained and can relieve the stress of dealing with your contents and belongings, not to mention the stress of dealing with the insurance companies. 

When fire breaks out, even a small one, the effects can be devastating as the smoke damage is often more destructive than the fire itself. Aside from the physical loss that a Baltimore homeowner must deal with, they must also face the emotional and psychological effects of seeing their investments turn into ashes.

Smoke and fire damage can be difficult to deal with, but at Eco Pro Restoration we have the expertise to restore your property quickly, saving you time and we are available 24/7 to help with the restoration process, including emergency contact for after-hours emergencies.

Inspection & Fire Damage Assessment

Inspection and fire damage assessment is the next step in our restoration process. The goal of this phase is to identify all areas that have been impacted by a fire, including things like potential chemical exposure, water damage, and structural instability. We use specialized tools to assess the levels of smoke damage throughout your home or office in order to build a restoration plan that will address all of these issues.

Immediate Board-Up & Roof Tarp Service

Immediately after a fire, the structure will need to be boarded up and roof tarps will be put in place. The goal of these initial steps is to stop water damage from happening due to rain or snow. We will also make sure the structure is safe to be on by having a fire inspector come out and take a look at it before we start any work.

Water Removal & Drying

The first step in our fire restoration process is to remove any standing water and dry out the area. To do this, we use a high-efficiency pump with a powerful vacuum cleaner. We then use a wet-dry vacuum as the final step to remove any remaining water.

Often the damage done by putting out the fire can be worse than the fire itself. So removing the water is essential to preserving your home or businesses structure.

Removal of Smoke & Soot From All Surfaces

We remove smoke and soot from all surfaces. We take your belongings and move them into storage if needed to prevent further damage. Removing soot and smoke from these surfaces prevents odor and allows us to find any additional water damage that could cause further mold and mildew from forming. We then use our state-of-the art processes to clean your property’s carpets, drapes, upholstery, mattresses, and other textiles.

Cleaning & Sanitizing

Cleaning and sanitizing is a vital step in the process of fire restoration. As soon as possible our team will begin to clean up any messes that may be caused by the fire. We will take any items that may have been damaged or destroyed and clean them up so they can be donated to a local charity, reused in another home, or recycled for materials.

We will then sanitize the area by wiping down all surfaces and spraying a disinfectant to kill any germs or bacteria that may have been left behind from smoke, fire, or water damage.

Repairs and Construction

Eco Pro Restoration is an industry leader in smoke and fire damage restoration, providing high-quality repairs and construction services. We offer a wide range of services for your home or business following a fire or other natural disaster, including structural repair to make your home safe again and minor repairs to restore your home’s aesthetic appeal.

Commercial And Residential Fire & Smoke Damage Clean-Up Services

Eco Pro Restoration is a licensed, bonded and insured company capable of providing the services you need when it comes to any of the services that require fire damage cleanup or smoke damage restoration. We can provide the water damage restoration needed to clean up the water left behind, the fire damage restoration services afterward and even the smoke damage restoration needed to make your home or business look like new again.

Dealing with fire or smoke damage restoration and cleaning is often the homeowner’s problem. The water damage and cleaning from extinguishing the fire can do just as much damage. The belongings are not handled by the insurance company. After the cause is known, cleaning and restoration of undamaged or partially damaged items is to be made. The homeowner must be present during the restoration cleaning to be able to salvage possible items.

We had a tune up on our furnace from another company who said we had mold all on the inside of our furnace which could kill us. Looking for a second opinion we contacted Eco Pro Restoration of Baltimore who came out over the weekend to inspect our problem. They looked at the inside of the furnace and was able to determine we didn't have a mold problem, and suggested we just clean up the area and get our ducts cleaned instead. We were not charged ANY money for his time and honesty, and we are left with a peace of mind! After another company tried to sell us an expensive part and even another company said we needn't a whole new furnace, I very much appreciate this company and specialist who determined we had no problem at all.

Thought we had a serious issue at our house with mold after getting an air test done. The person who performed the air test wasn't involved with remediation of the problem but was willing to refer me to someone. He said that Eco Pro Restoration was the only company he would recommend in the industry because they could be trusted. So I set up an appointment with them and they promptly sent someone out to take a look. They tested our basement area and determined that the problem really wasn't as bad as originally thought. They were knowledgeable, friendly and really helpful. Couldn't have been happier with their service. If we ever do have a problem, I would call them again in a heartbeat.

I was at my wits end with a botched water remediation job. I called Jerry at 4:00 on a Friday afternoon. He was at my home in an hour. His calm, "seen it all" demeanor and confidence assured me that I had found the right company to fix the issue. If it wasn't bad enough that they were coming in to clean up another contractors mess they also navigated working with my insurance company with ease. Chris and his crew were great too! I never doubted his integrity and honesty. I knew that if Chris was doing the job it would be done correctly the first time. They spent a lot of time to get my home in shape. I couldn't be more grateful for their professionalism and attention to detail.

Eco Restoration did a superb job! We had a major sewage mess in the basement and they got the job done to clean and sanitize the place! We were very happy with their work and professional job. Besides for the good job that they did - I found them to be really nice and friendly and I felt good working with them. I would highly recommend them to others.

An easy 5 stars for Jerry and the Eco Pro Restoration team. After my water heater failed and flooded my basement, Jerry was able to come out promptly to review the damage and begin the mitigation process. Eco Pro worked alongside my insurance company to resolve the situation and ensure that the repair was even better than what had existed before. Hopefully the need won't arise, but if it does, Eco Pro will be my first call.

Jerry is very professional. He arrived at the site on time in a very cold weekend morning. After carefully surveyed the site he concluded no mold remediation is needed so he did not charge us a penny! This company is reliable and trustworthy and I'll definitely call them again in case of need in the future.

Great service! Jerry showed up right on time and was very knowledgeable and helpful. He worked around my schedule and was very easy to schedule a consultation with. The best part is that he didn't try to sell us any services that we didn't need and provided great tips for keeping mold away! Thanks!

Mr. Jerry from Eco Pro Restoration (EPR) was truly a lifesaver today. I called EPR because I was highly concerned about some black spots that I had found in my home office and bathtub the night before. I was completely freaked out by the thought of having a mold infestation, after googling what the spots could be. Considering that today was a holiday, and I got off work after their quitting time, Mr. Jerry still managed to squeeze me into their schedule. He must have detected the panic in my voice. Longer story short, he assessed my home and eased my fear that their was nothing to be concerned about. I did have evidence of some mold, but it was surface and an easy fix. The assessment was free and he was kind and patient with me. He was helpful in educating me about moisture control and the next steps to take. I was very pleased with the service and would definitely recommend EPR if you have a mold concern. Thank you again Mr. Jerry! DJ

We initially hired EcoPro to address a mold issue in our bathrooms which they did very effectively. In fact, based on the quality and affordability of their services, we expanded the scope of their work to include some additional renovation of our bathrooms as well as additional painting and refinishing work in other parts of our house. We were very happy with their work overall.

I was worried about mold in my basement after a recent rise in humidity due to some changes. Eco Pro Restoration responded quickly. Jerry came out and gave me an honest opinion, reassured me, and made several recommendations of things I can do to prevent any future problems. He did not recommend any of his services as he did not see a need, and he did not charge for his visit. I would definitely use them in the future if needed!

I highly recommend Eco Pro. They responded quickly to my online inquiry and were able to accommodate my schedule for the initial inspection, which was free! The gentleman that came out was on time, professional, and gave me an honest opinion. I just bought a fixer upper and wanted to have someone look at some of the suspicious looking areas. His evaluation was thorough and his advice was honest and reassuring. I would definitely use them in the future if needed!
