Fire Damage Case Studies: Restaurant Fire Restoration in Evanston, IL

Wednesday, April 10th, 2013 by Marianne Koiva


It was just after 1:00 AM on Tuesday March 19, 2013, when we received a call that a fire had occurred at Kansaku Restaurant in Evanston, IL. What is believed to have started from an appliance failure in the kitchen caused smoke damage throughout the restaurant. United Services enlisted the assistance of its 1-800-Boardup team to boardup the property quickly, securing it and mitigating any future damages that might have occurred.


Then we got right to work. Our crews cleaned and deodorized the entire restaurant including the walls, floors, ceilings, tables, counter, bar, chairs and registers. We also cleaned and sealed the ductwork and furnaces and repaired the front door.

Due to the efficient work of United Services in cooperation with the restaurant owner, Kansaku was open for business the next day. We proudly delivered our Lifetime Deodorization Guarantee to the property owner and they now rest assured that there is no semblance of a fire left in the building.

"Responding quickly and developing a restoration strategy that works for all parties is the most important part in getting a business back up and running fast," said Charlie Miller, Project Manager for United Services. "We understand that for every day the business isn't open, they are missing out on revenue opportunities. That is why our crews are available 24/7 and work quickly and efficiently to restore the property."
