After a Fire, Time is of the Essence
Fire restoration work is complicated. While it might seem that the immediate damage ends when the fire trucks pull away, the truth is that unchecked smoke and ash can cause significant damage to a home or business through corrosion, etching, and discoloration. Furthermore, the smell of a fire can quickly become overwhelming–infecting all of your personal belongings, as well. The most immediate problem after a fire is that ash discolors mostly everything. Appliances will quickly start to “yellow,” and metals will significantly tarnish with each minute that passes after the fire. It’s genuinely important that you call us here at Duckstein Restoration Services as quickly as possible after a fire to contain the residual damage fire, ash, soot, and smoke that can cause further damage to your property. We’re ready to help save a remarkable amount of your belongings, even if you think there’s no possible way we can.

Our Fire Restoration Service as Told by Our Customers
Fire restoration work isn’t done the same way by all companies; in fact, it takes a wealth of technology, experience, and dedication to do it the right way. As a consumer, you’re going to hear from everyone that it’s “not a problem,” but we all know the truth isn’t as easy as that. We’ve hired an independent third party to collect reviews from our customers so you can have the most honest look at our work and dedication that we can provide. If you’re not sure which Pittsburgh company you’d like to hire for your fire restoration work, please visit our reviews from our past customers. We like when our work speaks for us.
