Common Complications After Fire Damage in Valley
SERVPRO Technicians Remediate ALL Aspects of Fire Damage in Order to Prevent Secondary Damages
Remediation of fire damage in Valley often requires services that may be surprising if the fire loss is your first. Mitigation of the effects of fire also must take into consideration the need to respond to the damage caused by firefighting efforts. Lingering issues such as unpleasant odors or mold also require skilled intervention for resolution.
Fire that damages a home in Valley through combustion of building material and contents, can result in charring and the deposit of ash, soot, and smoky residues throughout the dwelling. Before remediation of these issues begins, however, trained technicians must also remediate the damage done to the house by chemical agents or large quantities of water that were employed to extinguish the fire. The full spectrum of services SERVPRO crews offer allow them to remediate the water damage before focusing on the fire clean up.
The devastation potential of water damage cannot be denied. Removing standing water and drying out structures is an immediate necessity when sorting through the tasks required to remediate fire damage. Water damage unresolved continues to deteriorate the framework, walls, stairs, floors, and ceilings of a house. Many safety issues can result from unmitigated water damage, including the risk of electrical shock, slips, trips, and falls.
Once the water damage challenges are managed, SERVPRO crews move on to a thorough cleaning of the soot and smoke residues spread throughout the home. The IICRC training mastered by the technicians guides their decisions about the combination of procedure, tools and SERVPRO Professional Products that will be most efficacious in returning the home to pre-fire condition. The compassion and caring of the team as they listen to the concerns of the homeowners assures the highest level of customer service.
Final considerations for any fire damage scenario would include an inspection for any mold damage, especially if water incursion remained remediated for more than 72 hours. A mold remediation will follow when indicated. If the thorough cleanup of the soot and smoke damage does not eliminate unpleasant odors, SERVPRO crews have a protocol they follow to rid the home of the smell, including the use of advanced technologies that neutralize the offending odors, not merely concealing them with other smells.
