Smoke Damage from Fire – Hampton, NH

Written by jsolloway on . Posted in , , .

Fires can be very unexpected and destructive, from the immediate damage done by the fire itself to smoke damage from fire. They can be started by any number of things, from a cooking disaster to bad wiring to something as simple as a cloth left on a heater too long. This is part of what can make them hard, and often overwhelming, to deal with. Many people who have a fire happen in their home and business find themselves uncertain as to what they should do next.  Despite this, it’s entirely possible to be prepared as to what you should do in the wake of a fire.

This is something a young business owner from Hampton, NH found out when there was a fire in her small business. It was unexpected, and while the damage of the fire itself wasn’t that bad, the smoke damage was bad enough it disrupted her work. Fortunately, a good friend and fellow business owner gave her advice on what to do when it came to smoke damage from fire.

Process of Finding a Smoke Damage Restoration Company

Since she was fairly new to owning a business, she was glad to have her friend help her walk through dealing with insurance claim and fire damage restoration process. In particular she learned important questions to consider when looking at competent disaster cleanup companies, such as:

  • Does the company have proper insurance coverage?
  • How long have they been in business?
  • How is their standing with the Better Business Bureau (BBB)?
  • What credentials and certifications do they and their technicians hold?
  • Are they available 24/7 for any questions or additional support?
  • Can they provide references?

These questions helped her sift through vendor options and determine who was reputable and who was not. It also helped her avoid making the mistake of hiring a fire chaser. These contractors, who much like a storm chaser, follow fires to solicit work through high-pressure sales tactics. They are paid on commission and do not always have the customer’s best interest in mind when it comes to dealing with things like smoke damage from fire.

After nearly getting fooled by a fire chaser the Hampton business owner decided to hire Soil-Away, who walked her through each step of the process and made everything much less stressful for her. It was exactly what she needed after dealing with the fire and all that had followed so far.

All I have to say is WOW and FANTASTIC. I just got done building out my new professional office with Soil-Away’s construction division and they went ABOVE and BEYOND. Scott and Mike, the carpenters are skilled artisans. The project got done on time and the project came in on budget! The finished results have been blowing people away. Much better than I could have anticipated. Anyone is welcome to come to our office, Bright Light Chiropractic in Hooksett to check out the fine work they did. Simply can’t sing enough praises for them. Sorry that the picture doesn’t do the job justice. Thank you Jack and your team. -Dr. Jay

Since day one, I’ve known the owner, Jack, to be a hard-working and selfless leader. Through the efforts of him and his team, he was able to restore my flooded restaurant to tip-top shape. I was amazed with Jack’s orderliness throughout the entire process. Jack has proven to me that he is trustworthy, as both a friend and an individual in the work environment.

Highly recommend Soil-Away. A pipe in our upstairs bathroom gave and sent water down through a wall for at least a day before we noticed water dripping through our kitchen ceiling. Our insurance put us in touch with Soil-Away and they were at our house the next morning to assess the damage and dry things out. Joe, Ray and Tom were phenomenal to work with. They explained every part of the process to us and were very professional and friendly. If you have to deal with similar issues call Soil-Away, you won’t regret it.
