ServiceMaster of Old Saybrook, Middletown, and Guilford
Fires are perhaps the most difficult disaster to deal with because they quickly cause very serious damage and put your health and safety at risk. There are many ways that fires can start in a home or building which makes it possible for a fire to break out at virtually any time. The damage caused by a fire is often extensive and multi-layered which can leave you feeling completely overwhelmed once the fire is put out. While having the fire extinguished is a relief, the damage can still get worse as the remaining byproducts continue to linger and spread throughout the property.
After the fire department clears your property, you must call for professional fire damage restoration to prevent additional damage. At ServiceMaster of Old Saybrook, Middletown, and Guilford, we provide complete fire damage restoration services to help homes and businesses in Old Saybrook, CT through the difficult aftermath of a fire. Our technicians will clean up and restore the damage caused by the fire and provide support to help you through this difficult time.
Damage from Fire and Smoke
The most obvious damage caused by a fire is from the flames themselves that char and burn away the materials they come across. The flames of a fire can destroy objects and materials and leave a home or building structurally unstable. However, it is the byproducts created by the heat of the fire such as smoke, soot, and oily residue that often cause more extensive damage. These corrosive byproducts outlast the fire and will spread to areas that were unaffected by the fire itself. Surfaces and objects affected by smoke and soot will experience discoloration and etching and they must be cleaned with the right products and techniques to avoid permanent damage.
