Fire & Smoke
WE're here for you.


Experiencing a fire at your home or business is truly traumatic. Your home is your safe place. Your belongings are your comfort. Your memories there are endless - we understand. 


Emergency Response

Whether it was a microwave mishap that left the kitchen smelling like fumes, or a fully engulfed home, Menold knows this is a disruption to your life, and we respond immediately.


Board Ups/Tarping

Following the fire, your property needs to be boarded or tarped as soon as possible to protect the remaining structure of your home, prevent enviromental damage, and keep burglars or animals from entering.


Water Extraction/Dryout

Fires leave behind more than just smoke and soot. It's not uncommon for us to extract hundreds or thousands of gallons of water the Fire Department leaves behind. We further the drying efforts by placing commercial air movers and other equipment to expediate the process.



An overlooked thought when you suffer a fire is what's inside: your furniture, clothes, appliances and keepsakes. As we complete sturctural cleaning and repairs on your property, our Contents Specialists are behind the scenes restoring your things to pre-loss conditions. 


Structural Repairs and Cleaning

A small grease fire in the kitchen may require a simple cleaning and deodorization process, whereas a significant basement fire can leave the home needing a new roof, floors, and everything in between. All fire losses require a specific, calculated approach. 



Menold captures an immersive 3D digital twin of your loss using our specialized cameras. We share the renderings with you, your insurance company, and our inside team of Estimators.




  • Do not enter the property until the fire department deems it safe. Following a fire, ceilings, floors, and staircases become extremely dangerous.
  • Call your insurance agent and Menold at 877-636-6537.
  • Call your utility providers and let them know about the fire. Your utilities may need to be shut off temporarily.
  • Work with the fire department to finalize their reports and make sure you get a copy.


For additional information, check out FEMA’s After the Fire guidebook.



We'll be with you until the entire restoration process is complete, keeping you informed every inch of the way. You may be a fire restoration specialist in your own right once the project is complete.


Proudly serving Peoria, Bloomington-Normal, Champaign-Urbana, and surrounding areas!
