Things to Know about Restoring Your Fire Damaged Home in Kings Creek
Professional SERVPRO Technicians Arrive With a Plan to Quickly Remediate Fire Damage at Your Home
Many things can destroy, or nearly so, a home in Kings Creek. Fire can be one of the most destructive causes of property damage, especially in winter. While some cause slight damage, perhaps to a curtain, others can reduce a home to barely anything except charred timbers and streams of wafting smoke.
Property owners should know about the process of restoring their fire damaged homes in Kings Creek. While a fire can cause extensive damage, we at SERVPRO know that we can restore your home to preloss condition. We have restored many homes and businesses in the past after fire, flood and other disasters created a disaster for property owners.
No restoration company can restore the charred portions of your home or belongings. However, we can remove these so that restoration work begins more quickly and in safe conditions. Charred wood, such as the wooden beams that create the support network in your home, cannot safely hold the weight they should hold. They also pose risks such as exposed nails, slivers and splinters, and spread soot through the slightest contact.
Carpeting holds both soot from the fire and water from firefighters' hoses. Both can render a carpet more expensive to restore than to replace. The possibility of odor-causing soot particles remaining after a large fire makes it a very poor choice to keep. Replacing the floor covering ensures that no problems exist while renewing the carpet's guarantee.
Another flooring may become saturated during the fire department's visit, making it crucial for us to remove the moisture left behind. Water coming out of the hoses creates a very hot steam when it comes in contact with burning materials. This steam penetrates easily into drywall, paneling, and other semi-porous materials. These need to be inspected for damage also and replaced wherever damage occurred.
Cleaning after a fire includes windows, walls, all hard surfaces, and much more. Elimination of the visible soot cuts down on the amount of perceptible odor remaining in the home. When fire damage is not as extensive, deodorizing can help save otherwise undamaged carpets. While the carpeting might have remained dry, soot still penetrates deeply, leaving an ongoing source of odor in your home. Our Odor Control Technician (OCT) knows how to handle smelly odors so they no longer offend your family.
