“They were here within hours of our initial call. Both our teams were working around the clock over the weekend and by Monday morning we were ready to welcome teachers and on Tuesday we welcomed students and families. We opened 3 days early because of Northbay Maintenance.”
– Andy D., Head of The Healdsburg School after the Kincade Fire 2019
“During the Tubbs fire of 2019 we suffered enormous loss of our property, fencing and vineyard. Northbay Maintenance came to our rescue; cleaned our home in the most precise detail….
We were most impressed with the staff…the professional manner in which everyone worked together to bring our home back to an immaculate, smokeless home; it was left as it was before the fires only cleaner.
We would highly recommend Northbay Maintenance to those who have suffered fire damage.”

Our Process For Restoration After A Fire
We send a professional out right away to walk through your property and assess the damage.
We create your custom plan and estimate so that you can get approval from insurance.
You’ll be given an onsite manager with a direct line so that you can get daily updates and check in as often as you need.
Once onsite we immediately remove non-salvageable items and charred remnants that can continue to release gases and odors for months so that damage doesn’t continue.
We will board up your home and protect it as necessary to prevent new damage.
Depending on the extent of the damage we will pack out items and start content cleaning on or off-site for proper restoration.
Soot, smoke and ash as well as chemical and biological pollutants are cleaned from walls, surfaces and the rest of the home. Using state of the art technology and equipment such as air scrubbers and hydroxyl machines we render your home normal and odor-free.

Did You Know?
You don’t need to have fire actually burn your home for you to need fire + smoke clean up. Smoke is carcinogenic and dangerous to human health. If your home smells strongly of smoke but didn’t get burned it still may need smoke remediation.
You focus on getting life back to normal… let us fix the damage.
Why can't I just wait to see if the smoke smell goes away?
Odors become stronger with humidity and heat. Just because smoke has gone away for now, does not mean it will not return at a later time under different circumstances. This would be unfortunate if you miss your window of coverage with insurance. Also the pollutants from smoke do not go away because the odor is gone. Your home can still be filled with harmful chemicals.
Why is it so important to get smoke cleaned quickly?
Smoke is caustic and can damage metals such as sink faucets, appliances, etc. Getting smoke removed from metal surfaces and plastics in a timely manner is important to minimize damage.
Can’t I just use Febreeze for the smoky smell?
Smoke odor doesn’t come out easily. There are a few different ways to rid smoke odor. The most widely used method involves using a masking agent, this covers the odor up but doesn’t eliminate it which can be problematic if the masking agent wears off before the odor does. The other method involves using paring agents which counteracts the odor and neutralizes it. When we are hired on a project we focus on using paring agents as much as possible for a permanent solution. Which is why we use specialized equipment such as ozone generators, hydroxyl machines and thermal foggers to eliminate and create a smoke-free environment.
What is board-up for a fire?
After a fire, windows may have been broken and entire neighborhoods are left vacant. This leaves an enticing environment for intruders and home break-ins. Unfortunately should an intruder get injured breaking into your home you could get sued. Boarding up a house secures windows, doors and other possible entrances from the inside so that people can’t enter, limiting your liability and keeping your belongings safe.
Will insurance cover all this?
The best person to ask is your insurance agent. Call them as soon as possible as they usually get inundated with requests from other property owners after a fire. Then reach out to us so that we can put together a proposal to submit to your insurance agent for approval.
