Fire & Smoke Damage
Water isn’t the only thing that can cause major damage to your home. Fire and smoke can be just as if not worst threats to homes and businesses. A fire will obviously tend to do away with anything that happens to get in its path. Sometimes though we are lucky enough to be able to stop the fire and contain it within a specific area of a home before it spreads and causes major damage. When this happens you can give us a call and we will devise a strategy to make sure that areas affected by the fire can be restored to full strength.
Call The Fire Department
In case of an emergency or a developing situation be sure to call the fire department as soon as possible. Unlike flooding issues fires are not something that we can take care of when they are actually developing. What has to be done in this case is to call the emergency number and mind all of the recommendations that are given to you by the phone operator. The quicker you call the more likely it is that fire department personnel will be able to control the fire and give us something to work with later on.
Certain areas like grill spots and other typically outdoor spots that use fires to warm or cook something are prone to getting smoke damage. This damage is typically recognized by dark stains on walls and floors. While for the most part smoke damage is not really detrimental to walls or floors meaning that it won’t cause them to break or crack it still isn’t the best look for your place. They can be removed though, with a thorough cleaning service and some extra paint in some cases. Don’t wait until things get out of hand to call!
Assessing The Damages
When we get a call we will arrive at the location and immediately get to assessing the situation. We can’t just start trying to repair certain things without first knowing the true extent of the damage. When we get done with this process we will then provide a full report of our findings to get what you would like us to do as far as repairs or tear down duty. It is important to note that not all cases are exactly the same. Some areas may require more extensive work than others depending on the extent of the damage of course!
Putting In The Work!
Fire and smoke damage can get pretty rough. In some cases, the damage can be so extensive it would deem certain parts of a home uninhabitable at least for an extended period of time. We can provide a thorough and timely service including mold remediation, that will make sure that your living spaces are redone to make them look as they did prior to the fire issues. It may also be a time for upgrades to certain structures of your home. Plenty of which we would be very happy to provide!
