Solutions for Fire and Smoke Damage
The fire damage restoration process is multi-faceted because fires can cause different types of damage and it must begin immediately to avoid more widespread or permanent damage in the building. Our technicians provide effective solutions for the most common types of damage caused by fires:
- Fire Damage: Fire damage is the damage caused by the flames or the direct heat from the fire and it typically causes charring on the surfaces it touches. Other objects may melt from the fire while it causes paint and wallpaper to peel. Fire damage can continue to spread after the fire is put out because of the corrosive byproducts left in the aftermath.
- Smoke Damage: Smoke damage can go beyond the area that came into contact with the flames as the heat from the fire opens up pores in the building materials, allowing the smoke to spread. The toxic nature and corrosiveness of smoke makes it dangerous and destructive and it can also leave a bad odor in your home.
- Water Damage: The amount of water used by fire fighters to put out the flames can cause water damage in the aftermath. The longer it takes to begin the restoration, the more time the water has to soak into drywall and insulation to ruin the building materials and electronics.
- Mold and Rot Damage: The leftover water from the fire houses can also cause rotting or mold growth.
