What could be more unfortunate and destructive for a business than a fire!

Sometimes all is lost. Fortunately, however, thanks to firefighters' speedy interventions, most fires do not result in total structural loss. Phoenix understands your situation, and has the expertise to help you return to your affairs without delay. Fires cause damages such as smoke, soot, odors, and usually the firefighters leave water damage.

If some of your clothes have been affected, we can send them to the dry cleaners, just as we can send any damaged electronic equipment to be verified by a technician. 


The building structure

Our team, a building evaluator, and you, must evaluate the structure of the building. A triage is then done: the structures and materials to be restored are identified; those to be replaced are removed. Next, we clean all the rooms that were exposed to smoke or soot, and we treat them for Contact us now!
