We provide homeowners and business owners with fire and smoke damage mitigation and reconstruction in Central Wisconsin Counties of Marathon, Lincoln, Langlade, Portage and Taylor.

During a fire, smoke is driven by heat created by flames.  No matter where the fire originates, smoke may penetrate throughout a building structure.  Smoke also combines with humidity and can form corrosive residues that may cause secondary damage.  Long after the fire is put out, the damage can continue, as remaining free-floating smoke settles on horizontal surfaces and contents.

Fire does burn, but residual smoke may burn as well.  This is sometimes called etching, pitting or chemical burning.  Quick response and action are critical. The more time that elapses before treatment, the greater the damage.


ServiceMaster Restore is a highly reputable, licensed, insured and endorsed provider of fire and smoke restoration services.  In addition to our years of experience, our restoration technicians have completed advanced training in fire mitigation, restoration systems and corrosion control.  We also require continuing education to learn about new techniques and equipment to better serve our customers in their time of need.

It is our goal to restore the property as quickly and efficiently as possible.  Depending on the source, nature and size of the fire, the cleaning and restoration may require several phases before completion.
