SafeGroup is a national leader in fire and smoke damage cleaning and restoration. Every year, our specialist teams help many businesses and domestic customers recover from fires quickly and safely.
Our fire and smoke clean-up service is based on the latest scientific evidence. We have a comprehensive range of expertise and resources needed to respond to any fire and smoke damage incident.
The trauma and disruption caused by a fire in any home or business cannot be underestimated. That is why it is so important to make the right decisions in responding quickly to the emergency.
SafeGroup teams are trained and experienced in fire damage cleaning and restoration. That includes using the right specialist techniques and to deploy them sensitively, working with other experts if necessary to implement and manage an effective recovery plan.
As an emergency cleaning specialist, our services are set up to respond rapidly to a fire, 24 hours a day. Our teams have all the correct protective clothing, equipment and cleaning materials to start work straight away.
SafeGroup has also developed robust health and safety procedures, including risk assessments and method statements (RAMS), needed to enter and work in environments made hazardous by fire damage.
Our teams work with clients and their representatives, including insurance companies, to assess the type and severity of fire damage and take precisely the right measures needed to deal with.
We will help identify items that can be saved and those so badly damaged that they must be disposed of. Our emergency waste teams will take damaged items to an authorised site for safe disposal.
We then use specialist cleaning techniques and materials to thoroughly clean surfaces affected by smoke and soot damage.
Smoke and soot damage from fires can cause some of the biggest and longest lasting problems in domestic and business properties.
Billions of tiny soot particles which are toxic to humans and create an acidic reaction when in contact with moisture which results in corrosion damage to almost any surface.
This is why soot and smoke damage cleaning is such a vital and urgent task, even in places where the soot residue may not be immediately visible.
SafeGroup teams are trained in deep cleaning techniques using the latest professional cleaning agents. This means they can complete this meticulous task to a standard that cannot be expected of conventional cleaners.
Effective smoke clean-up is essential because fire damage odours can linger for a long time after a fire, making buildings unpleasant to live or work in. Deep cleaning all surfaces and items salvaged fire is a first important step.
SafeGroup teams can then carry out thermal fogging in smoke-damaged rooms. This process fills affected spaces with a non-toxic chemical vapour that helps to neutralise residual odours and providing long-term protection against their return.
Water damage is also very often associated with fires, from water used by the fire service, from the use of fire extinguishers deployed by business staff or sprinkler systems.
Fire water is particularly hazardous because it often contains potentially toxic chemical compounds created by the fire. It may also contain sewage released by surcharged drains.
SafeGroup can assist in dealing safely and effectively with this hazard. Working with other specialist service providers, we will arrange for fire flood water to be removed from premises.
We also have a full range of services for carrying out water damage cleaning and water damage restoration, which will be integrated seamlessly into our fire recovery service.
SafeGroup provides an emergency response service for many property professionals, including facilities managers, estate agents and landlords. Our cleaning teams are often among the first support services on the scene after a fire.
We are experienced at working with fire service personnel and police, plus loss adjusters, insurance companies and insurance brokers, assisting them, with our clients’ permission, in responding effectively to fire emergencies.
Effective fire and smoke damage cleaning is vitally important because of the wide range of risks created by a fire emergency. These include:
