A House Fire In New Smyrna Beach Can Get Hot

What SERVPRO Can DO About Fire Damage Restoration in New Smyrna Beach

If a fire breaks out in your home or business in New Smyrna Beach, it can cause a lot of fire damage and can be both costly and stressful. What most people do not realize is the extent of fire damage  that can happen and how a restoration service like SERVPRO can actually repair the fire damage. The following are just a few of the issues a fire can cause and how a restoration company can resolve them:

Fire Damage
After a fire, the first thing you may notice is everything that has been burned. A fire can ruin just about everything in the home. However, SERVPRO can help you to prioritize all of the damage and prevent further damage from being done. For example, if there is a hole in the roof, they will make sure it is repaired so that the weather will not cause further damage. Anything that is damaged beyond repair will be removed.

Smoke and Soot Damage
Smoke and soot damage are the result of fire and will also destroy items in your home. Smoke and soot will get into everything, including a wall, which means it can spread to rooms that the fire has not actually touched. Restoration companies like SERVPRO will make sure that everything is cleaned up and sanitized. By using the correct tools and chemicals, they can remove all of the bad odors and residue left behind from the fire.

Secondary Water Damage
Damage is also left behind from the water used to put out the fire or from the pipes or water tank that can burst during a fire. A team of restoration experts will act fast to remove any excess water by using their industrial sized fans and water pumps. As this excess water can quickly lead to mold and mildew issues, they will make it a top priority.

Further Issues
You may also find that many of the systems in your home are affected by the fire, including your plumbing and electrical systems. In these cases, they will work with subcontractors to make sure your home is functioning the way it was before the fire.

If you find yourself in need of a fire damage restoration company, be sure that you do your research before hiring one. You want to research their credentials and make sure they offer all of the services you may need. However, the one way to lessen the chances of ever needing a restoration company is to take precautions in your home by practicing fire safety and installing smoke alarms throughout your home.
