After Fire Damage

Elements collide throughout the progress of a fire creating many different reactions that impact the way professional restoration technicians address damages found in your home. The type of material, the amount of heat, oxygen and moisture present, along with indoor airflow patterns all play a severe role in cleanability.

Fire damage that occurs on your Louisville property presents restoration technicians with a variety of difficult challenges. Without the proper training, equipment, and experience, the results provided by the restoration company you choose to use can vary quite a bit. Making it necessary for you to choose your restoration provider wisely.

A fire that breaks out in your kitchen causes heat and smoke to damage some surfaces and does nothing to others, making the surface present critical for your restoration company to consider. SERVPRO technicians understand that more porous surfaces allow smoke and odors to penetrate further, making natural fabrics harder to clean than synthetic fibers. The amount of heat involved in a fire can cause surfaces to expand and become more porous, allowing residues and odors to penetrate otherwise resistant materials. When this happens, your expertly trained SERVPRO representative recommends refinishing contents more than cleaning alone, providing you with higher quality results.

A majority of fires also include damages caused by moisture, where suppression systems, firefighters, or weather conditions saturate residues staining surfaces permanently. Combining water and heat with smoke residues leaves surfaces yellowed that require special handling from your SERVPRO cleaning technician to restore properly. Burned synthetic materials, such as rubber or plastics, create wet, smeary residues that are much harder to remove than those left by wood or other natural materials that leave behind dried residues. Hot air expands during the event, causing increases in temperature and the volume of air involved, driving soot and ash into cracks and crevices that make cleaning tough.
