Hotel Smoke & Fire Damage Restoration
A fire at your hotel can result in devastating losses. And, smoke and fire damage can leave your building(s) too dangerous to enter afterward. Our professionals have the necessary knowledge, training and experience to conduct inspection of your property damage and to complete your property restoration.
Focus on safety first. — After a fire, safety must be the first priority. Depending on the severity of the fire, your building's structure, including ceiling, walls, and possibly even the foundation may have been weakened. After you have been advised that reentry into your hotel is permitted, it's time to quickly determine whether or not you will need to call a professional for fire damage cleanup and restoration. Extensive damage from soot, ash, and smoke do require professional rehabilitation to eliminate all traces of fire damage.
Check for water damage. — Because a building fire is usually extinguished with water, it is likely that there is water damage to the property. This means that your hotel will probably need both fire and water damage clean up and repair. Any residual water in carpets must be removed immediately, to avoid mold growth and the health hazard that it presents.
Our fire damage solution — Our experts will perform a multi-stage process of fire and smoke damage cleanup and restoration in your hotel. A few of the initial preparatory steps we will take include:
- Inspection and assessment of the damage
- Determination of a course of action for the restoration
- Boarding up missing doors and windows
- Covering a damaged roof with tarps, to keep rain out.
After the affected areas of the building are secured, the process continues with more in-depth cleanup and restoration work, which generally involves:
- Removal of remaining water from the affected areas
- Removal of soot from ceilings, walls, and all other surfaces
- Application of odor neutralizer, such as deodorizing fog, to remove smoke odor
- Cleaning and sanitizing of all restorable items
- Drywall repair or replacement
- Carpet installation

Hotel Mold Remediation
Mold is naturally occurring in the environment. It consists of organisms that flourish on moist surfaces. Mold is necessary to help break down substances so that nature can reuse the nutrients. But, when mold starts growing inside your hotel, it can damage your property and become a serious health threat.
Be aware of causes of mold. — Mold thrives on moist wood, paper, carpeting, cloth, and food, among other things. The mold may develop after a flood or a plumbing leak. But, it spreads by its airborne spores.
Know where mold occurs. — Mold grows on damp organic substances. In rooms that have sustained water damage, the mold may develop on ceilings, floors, carpets, upholstery, cardboard boxes, clothing, and a wide variety of other materials commonly found in storage areas.
Dangers of mold — Mold inside your building can cause or contribute to numerous health problems. Infants and individuals with allergies are at increased risk of health reactions to mold. Some symptoms of health effects from exposure to mold include coughing, nasal or throat irritation, lung problems, and itching eyes.
Removing mold can be difficult. — Typically, mold requires professional treatment to successfully eliminate all spores. Our Utah mold specialists have the professional equipment and tools necessary to succeed with mold solutions. We ensure complete removal of mold, so that mold regrowth does not occur.
Hidden moisture after flood clean up — Residual moisture left undetected can damage your hotel's insulation, flooring and underlayment, drywall, tiling, and even structural supports. A common misconception after flooding is that because walls and carpets feel dry, what's behind or under them must also be dry. But, typically carpets dry before any other building materials do. And, moisture often hides behind walls (and above ceilings). The only accurate way to determine if an area is actually dry is by using moisture meters.
The mold removal process is multi-staged. — A mold removal and remediation specialist will follow a process using professional-grade equipment and materials:
- First, a visual inspection to locate mold growth will be performed.
- Testing will be conducted to confirm the kind and extent of mold growth.
- All contaminated surfaces will be disinfected, and all materials that cannot be successfully treated will be removed.
- HEPA air filtration may be implemented to keep air free from mold spores.
- Finally, re-inspection of the area will be performed, to confirm that no traces of mold have been missed.
