What Other Damages Happen With Fires
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 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.
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, SERVPRO will work with subcontractors to make sure your home is functioning the way it was before the fire.
