Avoid Water Damage From a Fire in Louisville
After a Fire, Fast Water Cleanup Helps Restore Your Louisville Home
The impact of a house fire can cause many homeowners in Louisville to forget about the relatively minor issues involved with staining, warping, and decay caused by the very thing that firefighters used to save their home. However, for us at SERVPRO to help you by making everything “Like it never even happened.” we must address the presence of water left behind before it can cause damage of its own.
Before we can begin working on mitigating the harm caused by the fire in your Louisville property, we need to finish water cleanup procedures. These methods get your home dry again so that we can safely perform all of the restoration work that your house needs. A damp environment also creates a situation where new materials can suffer damage. While strong and unpleasant odors from smoke can bother you, odors caused by stagnant water can also pose a smelly problem.
With water cleanup, SERVPRO technicians extract moisture from areas that have absorbed water, effectively drying things out. We use several different types of equipment to accomplish this and also to accurately measure the rate that the evaporation and extraction take place.
Water from a fire acts much differently than water from a flood or a broken water line behaves. A large portion of the cold water that hits hot materials in a burning home immediately enters the air because it turns into steam. This steam travels all over your home, affecting belongings and materials in every portion of your residence.
Near-immediate removal of any remaining steam and its condensation can prevent a great deal of damage. When the steam condenses on porous materials, they absorb it. We must also remove this hidden moisture and get the affected materials dry again. The longer we wait to start working, the more damage can occur.
Because we know that one way we can effectively assist our customers is by reducing the amount of damage experienced as much as possible, we are always Faster To Any Size Disaster. A faster response means less damage happens to your home.
