Fire damage? We try to get you back on your feet as soon as possible. We make sure everything is processed smoothly and without any hassles to you.
It is an unfortunate fact that some homeowners will eventually face a fire on their property. Problems caused by fire damage can be complex, and because of this they should be handled by a professional. Smoke damage can manifest in many different ways. In addition, fire and smoke damage restoration typically includes dealing with water damage as well, since water is almost always used to extinguish fires but causes considerable damage in the process.
If smoke cleanup is necessary in your home following a fire, you should not attempt to handle the problem without the help of an expert. Prior to filing any fire insurance claims, you should avail yourself of the services of a trained professional who can survey the property to determine the extent of the damage, which may include smoke damage and damage from moisture, heat or even fireman’s tools. Such a professional can assess the impact of these factors on your home and personal belongings, which is helpful when filing fire insurance claims.
If you are like some homeowners who have escaped serious property damage and are primarily faced with damage from smoke, you may think that such problems can be handled quickly and easily without the help of an expert. However, such damage should be addressed by a professional, as it can result in the following problems:
• Malfunction of appliances due to clogged filters
• Damage to brass or copper fixtures
• Carpet damage from soot
• Wall discoloration
Problems Caused by Water
As previously mentioned, damage from fire and smoke typically includes addressing water damage as well. If excess moisture is overlooked, it could lead to the growth of mold or mildew, which can permanently damage items within the home or the structure of the dwelling itself. Additionally, mold is a toxic substance that can cause health problems.
Experienced fire damage professionals have the skills and knowledge to uncover dangerous or unpleasant conditions that may occur in your home following a fire. If you are faced with such issues, contact a qualified professional without delay.
