“When a fire destroyed two units my four unit apartment complex, I wasn’t really sure what to do. My insurance company was very slow to respond and I needed to get up and running again quickly. PRS came to the rescue! They had an estimate in right away and went over it line by line with myself and my insurance company. The price was very reasonable and they knew all the details that many other contractors might have overlooked in the estimate. They got on the job immediately and got the job done quickly and efficiently. What I really liked was the way I was kept informed of the progress of the re build. … Thank you PRS for coming to my rescue.”
“Nothing prepares you for a house fire – both the trauma and suddenness of losing your home and things. You’re not sure what to do or where to go. That’s why it’s critical to have a company that you can trust, one that provide comprehensive services in a supportive way. PRS is that company.”

As stated from the IICRC website:
“The fire trucks may be gone but without proper immediate response, the real damage and the costs are just beginning. To return your residential or commercial property to its pre-loss condition requires professional restoration. This is not the job for a do-it-yourself property owner.
For results you can have confidence in, the IICRC recommends hiring a certified restoration firm. Restoration to a property can be complex. Proper smoke and odor removal are tasks that require technicians certified in these specific areas.
When selecting a certified restoration firm several factors must be considered:
- Formal and up-to-date specialized training
- Health and safety certifications
- Experience in a wide range of restoration projects
- Proof of proper insurance and licenses”
Professional restoration technicians know that damage increases and restoration costs escalate the longer neutralization, corrosion control and cleaning is delayed. When homeowners prolong the restoration of their home, they extend the effects brought on by the smoke exposure. The following is a timeline of the effects of fire and smoke on a home.
Within Minutes: Acid soot residues cause plastics to yellow; small appliances located close to the source of combustion discolor; highly porous materials (marble, alabaster) discolor permanently.
Within Hours: Acid residues stain grout in bathrooms; fiberglass bath fixtures may yellow; uncoated metals tarnish, counter tops may yellow; finishes on appliances, particularly refrigerators, may yellow; furniture finishes may discolor.
Within Days: In time, acid residues cause painted walls to yellow permanently; metal corrodes, pits and rusts; wood furniture requires refinishing; vinyl flooring requires refinishing or replacement; clothing becomes soot stained; upholstery stains permanently.
Within Weeks: Restoration costs escalate tremendously. Synthetic carpet fibers may yellow or discolor permanently; silver plate is corroded permanently; glass, crystal, china may require replacement due to severe etching and pitting caused by prolonged exposure to acid soot residues.
