Understanding the Effects of Fire and Smoke
A fire’s flame causes significant damage, but smoke and other corrosive byproducts cause secondary damage that is often worse than the initial harm. Smoke and soot spread to areas that were unaffected by the flames and become absorbed by porous building materials. When the fire is being extinguished, smoke and soot can form other corrosive byproducts after combining with water. Even days after the fire, these byproducts burn and etch various materials and surfaces on the property. If you touch the affected surfaces, then the damage can become permanent.
At ServiceMaster of the Shore Area, our professional technicians are properly insured and licensed to provide fire and smoke damage restoration services. We will contain the damage and use powerful chemical cleaning products to clean up the damage from corrosive byproducts, preventing permanent harm. If needed, we can use our content cleaning and pack-out services to clean and restore any extensively damaged personal content. Our technicians will work diligently to restore and rebuild your home or business to its previous state.
Following your call for help from ServiceMaster of the Shore Area, avoid doing the following, as these can worsen the damage:
