Fire Damage Can Ruin Your Property if Not Eliminated Correctly
SERVPRO Has the Equipment and Expertise to Restore Fire & Smoke Damaged Items
Fire damage does not just destroy the home itself, but it can also destroy much of the furnishings and personal belongings found inside the home. When a fire happens, the priority is to get out of the home. Belongings have no value compared to human life, and many will say their furry family members' lives, as well. Because of the need to evacuate a home when a fire alarm goes off, and to do so as quickly as possible, the belongings left inside are also subject to the damaging effects of not only fire and smoke, but also steam that is created by firefighters' efforts and the water used itself.
Black Mountain firefighters understand that fire damage is often extensive, and this is why they are so aggressive in their efforts. They are not going to be as concerned with the contents of your home as they are with the burning exterior and interior. While your belongings are most likely going to become saturated with water, it is also more likely they will become infiltrate with smoke and soot damage.
Many items will be consumed in the fire, of course, but it is those items that are lightly damaged that professionals in fire damage restoration can most easily restore to their previous state. It isn't just looks, however, that SERVPRO technicians are concerned with. The level of contaminants must be reduced to an acceptable number before an item is safe to be handled again. This is where our latest equipment can come into service.
Our Esporta system can remove the majority of contaminants from items that have been exposed to fire damage. Soot is a greasy-feeling substance, but in actuality, it is rather coarse, although at the microscopic level. We can remove this soot and help your items return to their previous condition. Similar to this, out upholstery experts will ensure that your furniture retains none of the scents of a fire or smoke, and our other technicians can return your walls and ceilings to their spotless appearance again, as well. We also have flooring experts who can bring back the beautiful floors you once enjoyed and make sure that these are also safe to walk on. Fire damage can destroy the strength in a floor's underlay two ways – through the heat of the fire, as well as fire itself, and by exposure to the firefighters' water. We work together as a team to ensure that you and your family can sleep at night “Like it never even happened.”
