ServiceMaster Fire & Water Clean Up Services
Not many disasters are as dangerous as fires, especially when they spread throughout all areas of the home or building. Fires in particular, are horrendous as many sources can start and spread flames in a matter of seconds. But regardless of how far it spreads, everyone must react quickly to evacuate and call the fire department. As soon as the flames are out, immediate action must be taken to call for fire restoration services to prevent secondary damage from the smoke and soot.

Upon our arrival, we will assess the damage and start the fire cleanup process for all at-risk items to save as many as possible. The building structure will also be stabilized, followed by structural repairs to prevent the risk of collapse. A complete fire restoration plan will then be developed to allow for the most efficient and effective process.
Why Fire Restoration in Lancaster, PA, Needs to Happen Fast
When fires happen, there are two levels of damage that occur: those from fire and then smoke.
When the flames spread throughout the property, the chemical combustion of the items and building materials is the primary damage, quickly causing permanent destruction. The secondary damage is caused by the smoke and soot that was produced from the burning items, covering the remaining surfaces in an oily, thick residue that will also become permanent without immediate action from soot removal services.
While the damage isn’t permanent right away, the smoke and soot particles will soon cause etching, tarnishing, and corrosion to the building materials if they aren’t properly cleaned. This is why it’s essential to start the fire restoration process as soon as possible.
