We hope that you and your family never have to experience your home or building catching fire. The destruction caused by a fire is huge and detrimental, and usually a very emotional and terrifying experience. The most important thing to keep in mind during a fire is you and your family’s safety and prioritizing that over trying to salvage any items that could be getting destroyed.
But when the smoke clears, it's time to get busy. Smoke and soot left behind after a fire (whether large or small) can cause unforeseen damage to building materials, furniture, documents, and highly valued belongings. In order to safely deal with the aftermath of a fire, and attempt to restore any of your lost items, its crucial that you hire an experienced professional team you can trust.
MitiServe Restoration has over 20 years of experience with fire and smoke damage, and we have learned that quick response, education, and attention to detail are the best bet you have to salvage any items and diminish further damage and corrosion due to acidic soot. As soon as you experience the damage, call us here at MitiServe Restoration to help you and your family recover as quickly as possible.

FIRE PREVENTION SAFETY TIPS
Although MitiServe Restoration aims to be there for you when you need it most after a disaster strikes, we also want to be there to help you to PREVENT disasters as well. Fires can easily be avoided as long as proper handling techniques are used and people are well educated on what to do in emergency situations.
Here are some tips from the Red Cross that will help you prepare for a fire emergency:
Install the right number of smoke alarms. Test them once a month and replace the batteries at least once a year.
Teach children what smoke alarms sound like and what to do when they hear one.
Ensure that all household members know two ways to escape from every room of your home and know the family meeting spot outside of your home.
Establish a family emergency communications plan and ensure that all household members know who to contact if they cannot find one another.
Practice escaping from your home at least twice a year. Press the smoke alarm test button or yell “Fire“ to alert everyone that they must get out.
Make sure everyone knows how to call 9-1-1.
Teach household members to STOP, DROP and ROLL if their clothes should catch on fire.
We offer 24 hour, 7 days a week emergency response restoration services, so if you and your family happen to experience a fire, flooding, or even a mold infestation, please call us on our emergency hotline at 844-845-7314.
