Dealing with fire-damaged property involves two significant steps: mitigation of further damages and restoration. These services are often lumped into one larger category: fire damage restoration.

Mitigation includes tarping and board-ups, so your exposed property doesn't suffer further damage from the elements. Restoration is the step that brings your home back to the way it was before the Houston fire damage and includes structural repairs and dealing with the contents of your property.

Houston fire damage restoration also includes smoke damage restoration. Smoke and soot can get into the HVAC system and cause issues to your home and the health of everyone on the property. When you work with ER Contracting, you can safely assume we will identify and address any smoke damage as well.

6 aspects of quality recovery

Emergency cleaning and sanitation

Houston fire damage leaves behind a trail of debris, soot, and dust in its wake. Our fire restoration services will clean up your property and ensure the affected areas are spotless, without lingering odors.

Smoke deodorization and odor removal

We use state-of-the-art equipment and treatments to remove odors from your property, similar to the cleaning and sanitation aspects. HVAC systems and spaces behind walls are hotbeds for lingering smoke scents, and we make sure these are taken care of before pronouncing the job complete!

Contents cleaning and pack-outs

A pack-out is the process of taking the items from the affected area away from the scene of the Houston fire damage. Depending on the available space and amount of content, your things can end up either off-site or on-site. We perform pack-outs so that we can work in the area before bringing back whatever we can salvage.

Items that aren't salvageable get thrown away. You might be surprised at what our experts can restore, so letting them take care of the contents of your home can leave you with more of your items than you may expect!

Tarping and board-ups

Houston fire damage affecting roofs and windows is typical. When this happens, tarping roofs and boarding up windows can protect your property from the elements.

Both tarping and board-ups fall into the mitigation category: protecting your property from further damage.

Carpet removal

Removing the soot and dust that accumulates during Houston fire damage is a challenge. Most of the time, the carpet and underlying pad are beyond repair and require replacement.

Another contribution to the carpet damage is the water used by firefighters while putting out the blaze. The high volume of water ruins carpets and makes removing the lingering smoke and soot almost impossible.


Fire damage restoration is the final piece of the puzzle and the one we excel in completing at ER Contracting. After addressing the smoke damage, handling the contents, and preventing further fire damage, we do all the necessary structural and cosmetic work that brings your property back to the way it was before the disaster.

Many customers take this time to tweak the areas of their property that suffered the Houston fire damage and can end up with a better space than they had before!
