Fire Damage Cleaning
Available 24/7, on-site within 60 minutes
Fire damage can leave you feeling devastated and emotionally drained, and can lead to long-lasting impacts for homes and businesses.
In addition to both physical damage, the odours that arise from soot and smoke may harm and even permanently discolour furniture, walls and ceilings. The secondary effects of fire damage are known to lead to health problems if too much intoxicated air is inhaled over a long duration of time. This is why it is so important that the fire cleaning service is completed as soon as it is safe to do so, minimising any further risks or damage.
Our teams understand that this may be a sensitive time for those involved, however, you can feel assured in the knowledge that the skills and experience of our technicians are unmatched.
Our specialists offer a professional fire damage repair service with an agile and compassionate response. The level of cleaning we undertake is dependent on the severity of damage that was caused. Our services range from a full restoration of your property to smaller services such as soot and smoke odour damage repair.
A Professional Cleaning Crew Is Essential
One danger is the assumption that only the furniture destroyed by the flames has been damaged, when in fact the damage can extend much further than the human eye can see.
In extremely hot conditions porous surfaces will expand, allowing the toxins floating around (such as smoke and soot) to settle into these surfaces. Once the climate begins to settle the porous surfaces will start to close, trapping all the toxins, smoke odour and soot inside. All areas affected will become permanently discoloured over time and the longer the toxins are left to fester, the harder and more expensive the situation will be to recover.

Our approach to fire cleaning
It can be extremely difficult knowing where to start after you’ve been subject to a fire, and while you may be overwhelmed with various issues going forward, one thing you shouldn’t have to worry about is trying to clean the site yourself. Fire damage cleaning is not a simple process and should not be attempted by a non-professional due to hidden dangers that may be overlooked. Toxins, soot, ash and smoke can fester in even the smallest of places around the house, such as behind light switches, vents and small cracks within the walls. This can be detrimental to the health of anyone who enters the property without adequate PPE.
Safety is our number one priority
We will begin by clearing out the property and correctly disposing of all damaged materials. Our aim is to revive the property by removing any visual and hidden damages caused by the fire.
The water removal and drying processes will be determined by how out-of-control the fire came to be. It’s crucial that any excess water be dealt with promptly in order to avoid further damage complications such as mould appearing.
The following are included in our services:
- Emergency 24/7 call-out
- Specialist assessment of contents
- Structural cleaning and drying services
- Expert technicians
- On site within 60 mins
- Smoke damage clean up
- Removal of all debris, visual and hidden aspects
The initial 24 hours after the damage has happened is known as the “golden hour” of recovery. ICE Cleaning fire damage specialists can be on-site within 60 minutes of your call, increasing the possibility of recovering the property and its contents without a substantial amount of long-term damage.
We will not enter any property until we have been granted consent from local authorities that the construction of the property is safe. Once we have the go-ahead, our technicians will carry out a thorough inspection of the property to accurately determine the level of fire, soot and smoke damage. This step is vital to developing a carefully actioned plan.
All of our technicians use industry-leading cleaning products to effectively remove the chemicals, soot and smoke damage to the property. Trained to the highest standard, we guarantee you will receive the best service in the cleaning industry.

How do I know if the environment is contaminated?
Solid surfaces will likely have visible marks, but other contaminated particles may be invisibly circulating in the atmosphere. Our technicians are able to identify even hidden particles through use of thermal imaging.
What type of damage will a fire leave?
A fire can leave long-lasting damage to a property, particularly if neglected for a period of time. The harmful toxins found in smoke may permanently discolour furniture or other surfaces. There may also be structural damage to the building.
Are there any hazards I should be wary of once the fire has been extinguished?
Even after the fire has been extinguished, there will still be contaminated particles circulating in the air. Two of the biggest hazards are soot and ash.
How can fire damage affect my health?
Soot and ash residue caused by the fire can be detrimental to your health. Soot particles are tiny enough to enter your lungs and in extreme cases can lead to cancer. Ash, on the other hand, is more likely to be a threat if you have respiratory problems, allergies or asthma.
Are the affected materials and equipment dangerous to be around?
Yes – any materials or furniture in the property will most likely be contaminated with harmful substances such as ash or soot. Avoid the affected areas if possible, however, if you must enter the rooms, be sure to wear a mask, gloves and long clothes.
How quickly can ICE Cleaning to be on the scene after a fire has taken place?
ICE technicians can be on the scene within just 60 minutes of your call.
Can I hire machines to do the fire damage cleaning?
We would strongly advise you against purchasing or hiring fire damage cleaning equipment online. As well as it being costly, there’s no guarantee it will work. If you’re willing to spend the money on hiring a fire damage cleaning machine, you’re able to hire a professional team of technicians.
Why it is so important to begin the fire restoration process quickly?
One of the reasons we offer our services 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, is to ensure that all situations are dealt with promptly. The restoration process should begin as soon as possible in order to avoid contaminated particles setting further into the furniture, walls and floors.
How much will it cost to deal with the fire damage?
The cost of the service will depend on the size of the property and the severity of the fire damage.
Will you be able to restore the property back to it's original condition?
Whilst we can’t make any promises, we guarantee our technicians will do all that they can to restore the property as close to its original state as possible.
