Fire Damage Can Be Devastating

Fire Damage Fire Damage Can Be Devastating Fire in a house can be very trying and heart-breaking.

Fire Damage Results in Many Problems

Fire damage can occur in any home. There are two types of destructive fires that can occur at a residential or commercial property. One variety is a small centralized fire in a kitchen or living room that damages only a few items while the other type is a large fire that destroys numerous important materials such as drywall in a building. Not only is a fire destructive due to hot flames, but there are additional problems from poisonous smoke and greasy soot that make it difficult to restore a property.

The Role of Fire Restoration Technicians

Professional SERVPRO fire restoration technicians are trained to restore a property as quickly as possible to prevent additional damage from soot and smoke. One of the first things that require repair are roofs and walls to prevent exposure to rain, snow and cold air. These repairs permit workers to enter a building to complete essential restoration to other fire damaged materials. At the same time, SERVPRO technicians begin the process of removing water from sprinklers and hoses to prevent moisture damage.

Improving Air Circulation

After a fire occurs, buildings often become humid from the water used to douse flames. Unfortunately, power in the building is frequently turned off, leading to poor air circulation. Lack of air circulation causes secondary problems from smoke odor and humidity. Our Bolder based fire damage technicians install fan systems to circulate air and reduce humidity levels. With an improvement in air quality and removal of moisture, it is possible to restore power to a building to complete other restorations.

Cleaning and Sanitizing Surfaces Affected by Fire

After major repairs are completed, our trained experts begin cleaning and sanitizing surfaces damaged by smoke and soot. Removing filthy soot is a specialized process to avoid contaminating other items. Industrial-strength equipment scrubs the surface while vacuuming debris that is isolated for disposal. Our technicians use sump pumps and extraction machines to remove moisture from water-soaked areas.

How to a Hire Fire Damage Remediation Expert

After a fire, a professional fire remediation company--SERVPRO-- is required immediately to begin a cleanup. Hiring our technicians means a quick response to your home for a commencement of the cleanup process.
