    Frequently Asked Fire Damage Questions

    Costs can range from $1,000 and $30,000. These numbers represent ranges of price or a “ballpark” estimate. Fire & Smoke Damage can range in intensity and level of damage to your property. It’s important to contact ServiceMaster Restoration By Simons to begin the consulting and estimating process as soon as possible.
    Several factors affect cost. Size of fire or smoke damage, the intensity of damage, and type of materials burned in a fire. Another factor that is often overlooked is the type of extinguishing agent used to put out the fire. Was water used? An inert gas like nitrogen or argon? Or a chemical agent like potassium carbonate?
    Of course, you can attempt to clean smoke and soot damage yourself. And you may be successful at it, but the chances at success are slim for you. Smoke & Soot Cleaning requires special processes, training, and skill. These processes are established by the IICRC. As a certified IICRC firm for Fire & Water Damage, we recommend that you make sound decisions that work for you. If, after you’ve attempted to clean the damage yourself, you feel that you still need a professional service, immediately call ServiceMaster Restoration By Simons at 773-376-1110 for professional Fire & Smoke Damage Cleanup and Smoke & Soot Cleaning.
    Most property insurance covers 100 percent of your fire damage cost, but you’re responsible for paying a set deductible. Your agent is your best resource for coverage information, and our staff can help you navigate the process.
    Don’t remove furnishings or belongings from damaged areas until your carrier gives you the OK. Your insurance company has to establish the fire’s origin and cause, and you don’t want to slow the adjuster’s process.
    Estimating a Chicago Fire & Smoke Damage Restoration, Smoke Odor Removal, or a Soot Cleaning project on the phone is virtually impossible. A ServiceMaster Restoration By Simons project manager needs to visually inspect the premises, take measurements and assess the level and intensity of the fire & smoke damage to your property before an estimate can be produced and presented.
    Because there are many variables and many services involved in fire and smoke damage restoration, it is difficult to predict exactly how long the complete restoration will take.  Consult with your ServiceMaster Restoration By Simons restoration technician on the estimated dates and phases of your restoration project.
    We suggest that you do not attempt any do-it-yourself cleaning methods without consulting ServiceMaster Restoration By Simons first.  Pretesting, using the right cleaning agent for the particular item, mixing deodorizing agents with cleaning solutions, and using correct dilution rates are just some of the ways a fire restoration technician expertly controls the results.  Professional cleaning systems and products used by experienced, trained ServiceMaster Restoration By Simons Fire & Smoke Restoration Technicians give you the best chance for complete restoration of your belongings.
    At ServiceMaster Restoration By Simons, occupant and worker safety is a top priority.  During the initial inspection, safety hazards are identified and addressed, including debris removal, air quality, electrical hazards, slip and trip hazards, etc.  Burnt electrical cords and appliances are separated out for disposal, and questionable electrical appliances are unplugged and tagged for evaluation of the safe operation.  Electrical power may be turned off and kept off until evaluation by a licensed electrician.
    We recommend that you not turn on your furnace or air conditioner unit without clearance from the HVAC contractor.

Picture, pictures, pictures.  There’s no such thing as too many.  Document as much as possible including damaged personal items, food items, structural damage, and if possible, pictures of the source of the damage to your property.
    This is ultimately your decision.  Some things you may want to consider are safety concerns, odors, electricity, noise from equipment, etc.  If vacating your premises for any length of time consider the following: forward your mail to your temporary residence; stop newspaper and other deliveries; notify utility company, Cable Company, etc., of temporary suspension of services.
    There are some items that may require general contractors such as drywall/painting; electrical; plumbing; roofing; framing/finish carpentry; flooring/carpet; installation of doors, windows, cabinets.  ServiceMaster Restoration By Simons offers a full line of Post Construction Cleaning Services.  Please inquire.
    Depending on the source, nature, and extremity of the fire, it may be best to remove all belongings to a secure facility for cleaning, storage and to make room for the restoration or construction.  ServiceMaster Restoration By Simons will work with you and your insurance claims representative to manage this process.
    Yes, with advance notice we can schedule a time for a ServiceMaster Restoration By Simons representative to meet with you and provide access to your requested items.  A service charge may apply.
    Some high-value items require restoration by a specialist.  Working with your insurance claims representative, we can help you identify these and locate a qualified restorer.
    Ultimately you, the property owner, are responsible for payment and will need to sign a form authorizing payment for the restoration services.  In many cases, if this is an insurance claim, ServiceMaster Restoration By Simons generally collects only the deductible (co-payment) amount from you and bills the balance to your insurance provider as a service to you.  If you have a large loss, your mortgage company may be included as a payee on the payment from your insurance company, and you may need to obtain a signature from them as well.  If your claim is not covered by insurance or you decide not to file a claim, you will be expected to pay in full.
