Fires are extremely hazardous because they move quickly and endanger everyone in the immediate area with toxic fumes, oppressive heat, and extreme temperatures. Fires spread quickly, so there’s no time to do anything except get everyone out and to a safe location immediately. Never try to call 911 from the scene of the fire and don’t try to save personal possessions. Perhaps the worst thing about fires is that they continue to damage property even after the flames are extinguished. Soot, smoke, and other hazardous byproducts tarnish and etch surfaces and items, causing damage that will be permanent without prompt restoration.
The professionals at ServiceMaster of Baltimore are fully trained and certified in comprehensive fire damage restoration. We provide restoration to commercial and residential clients in Annapolis, MD who have experienced fires of all sizes, and we will salvage and restore as much of your building and its contents as possible.
Fire and Smoke Damage Come from Many Sources
The initial damage in a fire usually comes from the flames. They leave behind a great deal of destruction that can leave the structural integrity of the building compromised, but that’s not the end of the devastation. Soot from the fire etches and tarnishes household surfaces like marble and chrome. The horrible smoky smell can reach into places that were unaffected by the flames and that odor won’t go away with time. Burning synthetics release toxic fumes that can cause damage, and even the water and firefighting chemicals leave their own messy aftermath. These elements will continue to wreak havoc on your home or business and its contents unless fire damage restoration starts quickly.
