stock-fireIn the unfortunate event that you experience a fire in your home, you should call M&M for professional restoration service. It is important that the cleanup begins as soon as possible. Smoke residues are acidic in nature and with time they will cause surfaces to corrode and stain permanently. Smoke residues that were pressurized during the fire will permeate cracks and crevices of building materials and deposit odor-causing residues.

M&M construction service professionals will work quickly to stop the damage and restore your home and contents back to pre-fire condition by using cleaning systems and equipment that will help eliminate costly replacement of restorable items.

Smoke odors can be difficult to remove due to its penetration and absorption into building materials. We have the knowledge, products and equipment to permanently remove these stubborn odors. Give us a call for an estimate of damage repair in the event of a fire or smoke damage.
