Comprehensive Smoke Damage Restoration

If your home or establishment has been affected by a fire, it’s critical to contact a smoke damage restoration company immediately. Many property owners will attempt do-it-yourself smoke damage repair and soot removal by scrubbing walls to remove obvious signs of soot damage, while neglecting proper smoke ventilation methods. This will inadvertently create excess moisture that will set the soot permanently into the paint, further complicating the smoke damage restoration process.

When Restoration Relief arrives at the scene, our team of trained professionals will conduct a rapid damage assessment, halt further damage in its tracks and provide estimates for restoration. We will conduct all necessary demolition and structural drying before undertaking any soot damage or smoke damage repair, and carefully remove household goods for cleanup and restoration using only environmentally friendly methods.

The One-Stop Smoke Remediation Company

Restoration Relief has offered smoke remediation services to Lancaster, PA and beyond since 2011 — but we’re not just a smoke remediation company. In addition to our smoke damage repair services, we offer services for property owners affected by water damage, mold damage, storm damage and damage caused by biohazardous materials.

A fire or other damage can make properties a target for intrusion — Restoration Relief offers board-up services to prevent criminals from entering your property during this vulnerable time. Additionally, we will work to restore the contents & structure of your property to their original condition. Our goal is to be a one-stop smoke remediation company that can do it all.


Before Restoration Relief arrives, here are some tips to prevent or minimize further damage:

  • If possible, open windows in order to ventilate the area and get the air moving
  • Do not add water to the walls or touch the walls since the oil from your hands and the added moisture will set the soot permanently into the paint
  • If possible, try not to walk in lightly damaged areas to avoid tracking soot from the heavier contaminated areas and creating further damage
  • Please understand if water was used to extinguish a fire, we will take care of all necessary demolition and structural drying before we start any restoration work.
