    We charge by the man hour and HEPA vac rental. Nothing to brag home about, but fire is labor intensive.

    If you own a HEPA air scrubbers, I'd use them also.

    Good deal. There is a legitimate need for filtration and you can also charge for rental.

    We don’t handle many fire smoke damage jobs but yes you are so right about more labor intensive. Affected area is almost 800 sqft and we’re gonna end up being around $2500 to $3k which I’m not sure if we’re in the ballpark or not since we don’t handle a lot but it’s a lot easier to do a water job only for $2500.00

    Water is always more profitable due to equipment rental.
