Paragon Restoration offers professional fire restoration and smoke restoration for your residential or commercial property.

We suggest that you DO NOT attempt to perform any “do it yourself tasks” or cleaning methods without first consulting a qualified Paragon Restoration technician. For example, touching surfaces covered in soot could actually make the damages worse by permanently setting the soot. Returning your property to pre-loss condition and helping families and individuals like you is what we do.

Understanding Fire & Smoke Damage – During a fire, smoke is driven by heat created by flames. No matter where the fire originates, smoke may penetrate throughout a building’s structure. Smoke also combines with humidity and can form corrosive residues that may cause secondary damage. A quick response and action are critical to minimize the damage.

In addition to our years of experience in dealing with these situations, our uniformed highly trained Restoration Technicians have completed advanced training in fire mitigation, restoration systems, and corrosion control. It is our GOAL to restore your property as quickly and efficiently as possible.
