While a fire can be devastating, a flood comes with its own fair share of damage and lasting clean up concerns.

Soil-Away Effectively Restores Soft Contents for Homeowners and Businesses Affected by a Fire or Flood
Everyone can agree the smell of smoke is offensive and annoying, to say the least. The odor can be noxious. Whether your Concord, NH home has been exposed to smoke damage from a small house fire, an electrical fire, bombarded by cigarette smoke, or if it has been in the path of a forest fire, the irritating smell is still there. Getting rid of smoke odor can be an overwhelming task. Here are some things you can do.
Fires in your home or office can be damaging enough, but electrical fires can bring a whole new threat into your home. Electrical fires are different from normal fires in that they cannot be put out by normal means. That is, you can’t put water on them. This will only serve to make the problem worse as water conducts electricity and could make the fire spread. The electrical fire damage cleanup that follows can also be an arduous and lengthy matter.
