Fire and Smoke Damage Restoration Columbus, Groveport & nearby
Even when the fire is out, the fire damage continues. Much of the material found in furniture and flooring is synthetic and when burned, it can create a variety of complex chemical reactions. After only a few days, these items go from cleanable to unsalvageable.
The fire damage professionals of ServiceMaster Clean® are experts in understanding the chemical combinations that can effectively clean and salvage belongings. We can even remove soot from at-risk items such as brass, aluminum, chrome, marble, tile, and porcelain as well as fabrics in upholstery and carpets, thus helping to avoid additional expenses.

One of the biggest problems with water disasters is its effect on carpets and floors. ServiceMaster Clean® understands these issues and provides fast, on-site carpet and wood floor drying.
Here’s what your ServiceMaster Clean® professional considers when drying carpet:
- Age and condition of carpet
If a carpet is so old that it is a better value to replace than attempt restoration, we’ll let you know what makes the best financial sense. ServiceMaster Clean® uses industry resources to help determine the exact value of carpet.
- Length of time carpet was exposed to water
Most carpets can withstand water for up to three days, but immediate response to your loss is critical. In most cases ServiceMaster Clean® can be at your site within two to four hours.
- Type of water
The type of water will affect the restoration process:
- Clean water: Water from a clean source with no debris.
- Grey water: Water that is not necessarily clean but is not hazardous (washing machine and dishwasher overflow, for example).
- Black water: Sewage backup or runoff water. These losses are hazardous and should be handled with caution.
- Water temperature
The temperature of the water is important to consider. Here’s what we consider when drying wood floors:
- Wood floors are very sensitive, so proper drying is critical.
- Wood naturally holds water—up to 10% depending on the type of floor.
- Wood can absorb another 5% to 10% without showing any noticeable effects. Within a few days, however, floors that cannot hold the water any longer will expand, causing cupping or crowning. Both are very difficult to restore.
- Emergency response is critical for any damage to wood floors.
