Time is of the Essence
The damage caused by smoke and fire can be extensive. Fire damage can occur to both your building structure as well as your internal items. In addition to the harm caused by fires, smoke and soot can cause further destruction that lingers. The smoke-penetrated surfaces of textiles, walls, ceilings, and metals experience changes in their chemical compositions, which is why commercial smoke and fire cleanup and restoration should occur immediately.
Our Restoration Process
Just like how every business is different, every fire and customer differ in terms of the level of damage and the urgency with which you must get back up and running. We understand this, which is why we work with you closely along the way to understand your needs and work accordingly. While every situation varies, here is an idea of some of the services you might expect after a fire and smoke damage:
- Board-up and secure the building. Inventory the assets and identify what is and is not salvageable.
- Dispose of what is not salvageable and remove, secure, and remediate salvageable items.
- Begin HEPA air filtration to remove soot, dust, and micro-debris from the air.
- Thoroughly clean the entire building, including walls, ceilings, etc.
- Sanitize and deodorize the building, equipment, and other salvageable items.
- Clean carpets and upholstery.
If there is water damage due to sprinkler systems or fire hydrants, we have a process for that, too.
Don’t Tackle This Work Alone
A proper and exhaustive restoration process is necessary in order to avoid hazards and potential health problems that arise as a result of remaining residue. In addition, tackling remediation on your own may actually cause additional damage and create challenges for insurance. Our technicians are meticulously trained professionals who know what they are doing and do it well.

If it is only a small fire, can you clean it by yourself?
Small fires can be very dangerous. You should never try to fix them yourself because you might get injured by the smoke, soot, or fumes. Your house may also collapse if there was any structural damage. A professional fire damage company knows how to clean up after a fire and make sure everything is safe before you go back into your house.
Is it ok to stay inside your home during the cleaning and restoration process?
It can be safe to stay in your home during the cleanup process. Small fires won’t normally pose a risk to your health, but large fires could cause lingering fumes, soot and smoke that is dangerous for inhalation. For these cases, we advise that you leave your home during our cleanup process.
How long will it take for Brouwer Brothers Steamatic to clean and restore your home?
This depends on the extent of damage, the insurance company’s processes, and the efficiency of your fire damage restoration teams. It also depends on if your home has suffered other types of damage, like mold or water damage. The fire damage restoration can take anywhere from a couple of days to several months to finish. A reputable fire restoration service will be able to give you an estimate of when the restoration process will be completed. At Brouwer Brothers Steamatic, we help craft a full recovery plan for your home and implement it thoroughly and efficiently.
