Rumsey Construction and Restoration responds immediately after a fire to board up your property. Fires often result in broken windows and damaged roofs, leaving your property exposed to outside elements, animals, and potential vandalism. We will make sure holes in the roof are covered and all windows, doors, and other entries are secured.

We are always ready to respond to a fire emergency. You can count on us to be there fast, day or night.

Smoke Damage Removal

Discoloration of walls, corrosion of material, and – worst of all – odor, all accompany fire damage. Smoke can cover an entire home in less than three minutes. It is one of the most difficult aftereffects of a fire to remove short term and can be the worst for you long term. Because of this, it is the most important aftermath to treat. Smoke contains toxic chemicals that can be dangerous to your health. Also, the soot that attached to the walls becomes more difficult to remove over time. Soot, if not cleaned immediately can etch into glass objects and seriously damage other materials.

Rumsey Construction and Restoration uses a combination of cleaning treatments, ozone, and unsmoke agents to permanently remove smoke odors and stains. We can arrive on the scene immediately to minimize the damage as quickly as possible.
