Fires are a nightmare scenario that can occur at any time of the year and at different levels of intensity. They can be extremely damaging in residential and commercial settings, and have the ability to destroy structures, personal belongings, and operational equipment. If your home or office falls victim to a fire, you should first evacuate all family or personnel from the premises. Second, you should contact us here at ServiceMaster of the Shore Area. We provide full fire and smoke damage restoration services to home and business owners in and around Toms River, NJ.
What to Expect from a Fire
Flames alone can obviously cause mass amounts of devastation to structural elements and belongings, but so too can the smoke, soot, and other corrosive byproducts that result from the inferno. This simply means that while the fire may have been isolated, other areas of your building were likely affected in some way, and are at risk of etching, discoloration, and other effects. Our ServiceMaster of the Shore Area technicians are experts when it comes to the ways in which these elements spread, and will do everything possible to limit the extent of the damage, and restore your property.
Another effect of fire is the odor left behind in structural elements and belongings. This occurs when materials are porous and absorb the smell, and it can result in permanent damage if not addressed quickly. This is why we include full deodorization services through our fire and smoke damage restoration services.
