Regardless of how big a house fire is, the damage that it causes can be extensive because the flames char everything it touches and the smoke and soot can cause further damage, even after the fire is put out. House fires also cause dangerous chemical emissions and fumes from burning certain synthetic materials which can lead to even more damage and health problems. It is important for insurance agents and adjusters who help homeowners in cases of house fires to understand the potential damage a fire can cause as well as the process for fire damage restoration. ServiceMaster NCR provides CE classes for smoke and odor damage in Alexandria, VA to educate local insurance agents on our process for smoke and odor damage and how to mitigate the damage after it occurs.
