Fire-Damage Restoration

Fire-damage restoration is the process by which smoke- and fire-damaged property is remediated and restored to its prefire condition. Calgary’s ASTRA Restorations provides unparalleled service to ensure both the restoration of your property and your peace of mind.

Fire-damage restoration begins as soon as the property has officially been deemed safe to enter.

In addition to direct fire-caused damage, fire creates smoke as an acidic byproduct. Smoke corrodes and stains materials and surfaces throughout your property. To make matters worse, efforts to put out the fire can cause more damage than the actual fire.

ASTRA Restorations ensures your property is restored the right way, providing you the security that your property is once again safe for your family or employees.


Call a professional before you do anything. Calgary’s ASTRA Restorations will ensure your commercial or residential property is restored to the strictest standards and in the proper order.

Once you’ve contacted ASTRA Restorations, you should do the following:

  • Ensure all windows are open, allowing as much smoke as possible to leave the property.
  • Relocate all pets, kids, and occupants to a smoke-free environment and have their health checked by a health care practitioner. Smoke contains carcinogenic gases that affect health. During fire restorations, all building occupants should reside at a temporary home.
  • Inventory the contents of your home, noting all items that need replacing. Take pictures of the damage. You will need copies for your insurance company and fire-investigation authorities.


Allowing damage from fire, smoke, and extinguishing chemicals to linger in your property for any amount of time leads to quicker deterioration of your property and contents. Structural components, furniture, electronics, clothing, and even cherished items can be saved.

Calgary-based ASTRA Restorations offers personalized attention that ensures all aspects of your property are attended to with the same high standard.

Our restoration process involves a thorough inspection of your property. As part of this inspection, we require a detailed outline of how the fire occurred, including the following:

  • what caused the fire,
  • what contents the fire affected (e.g., wood furniture, cleaners, machines, plastic),
  • how the fire was put out, and
  • when you need to be back on the property (e.g., upcoming events, important dates).

Once we’ve completed our inspection, we begin our restoration protocol, which involves three stages: hazard removal, cleanup, and air-quality restoration.
