Fire Damage Restoration

There are many things to consider after a fire occurs. What is going to happen to my belongings? Will the smoke odor be removed from my home? How long will it take before I can return to my home? Rainbow Restoration Restoration has assisted many Chicago homeowners by cleaning up their fire and smoke damage over the years. We have since developed economical and comprehensive solutions to restore your property and your belongings. Our service professionals will educate you, communicate what to expect, and walk you through the entire process.

  • Rainbow's service professionals are IICRC certified and trained to address fire damage and smoke odor as opposed to choosing a general contractor to address your fire mitigation. When a fire occurs, building materials heat up causing their pores to expand. Smoke particles become trapped in the pores of building materials and as the building begins to cool, the pores then contract holding in the smoke odor. If the property is not properly restored before the build-back, the smoke odor will reappear. Especially on warm summer days that cause pores in the building materials to expand.

  • Smoke damage repair is best performed by trained professionals who know how to properly implement ozone and thermal fogging applications to eliminate smoke odor. Soot can etch surfaces, tarnish metals, yellow plastics, embed itself into upholstery, clothing, and carpet so it is important that you choose a restoration contractor that is experienced in cleaning soot and smoke damage.

In some cases, the steps taken to put out the blaze can cause more damage than the actual fire. This is why fire restoration is an elaborate and invasive process as it deals with heat, soot, smoke, and water damage.

If your personal property is damaged, our contents division can pack out your contents and safely relocate your belongings to our secure facility to clean and store them while fire restoration takes place.

Our fire damage service professionals are well-versed in insurance claims. We can help you determine if your fire or smoke damage will exceed your insurance deductible. If your damage warrants filing an insurance claim, Rainbow's service professionals will work with your adjuster throughout the process and will provide your insurance carrier with our documentation.

The longer your personal property and building components sit unaddressed, the more damage they can encounter. Contact Rainbow to assess your home, and your contents, and provide you with a scope of work.

    I highly recommend Rainbow Restoration! They did an excellent job and were able to fit us in right after I called and their rates were by far the best I found. They take great pride in their work and that was apparent on the job they did.
