SERVPRO Removes Unseen Damages after a Fire

3/15/2022 (Permalink)

Damages after a Fire Fires can cause a devastating amount of property damage in a short period.

After the flames have been put out and you are left to assess the damage, you may be wondering if anything is salvable. Smoke leaves behind noxious odors, soot blackens surfaces and may contain toxins, and water can result in mold growth. 

Getting back to normal after a devastating house fire is a top priority. SERVPRO is a trusted company in Amarillo with specialized Amarillo fire damage restoration services. We want to let you know how our team of experts removes unseen damages after a fire. 

Common Causes of Residential Fires

Fire in a home can happen for several reasons. Here are some common causes of fires in Texas: 

  • Cooking fires in unattended kitchens
  • Electric short circuits due to overloading of sockets or faulty wiring
  • Keeping flammable items like paint close to heat sources
  • Leaving candles unattended
  • Disposing of cigarettes while they are fully put out 

Types of Fire Damage SERVPRO Removes

Soot, smoke, and water damage are significant concerns after a fire. Soot stains upholstery, carpeting, walls, brickwork, and other belongings. Also, the smoke odor remains a long time after the fire department has left. It can also contain poisonous chemicals. And water damage can cause irreparable damage to photographs, upholstery, and important documents. 

Water Damage

SERVPRO uses specialized equipment to remove water used to extinguish house fires. After that, we use air movers, dehumidifiers, and heating elements to dry the property. This step also prevents mold and mildew growth. 

Smoke damage

Smoke damage cleanup is an essential step in the fire restoration process and should not be skipped. Soot damage often coincides with smoke damage and should be removed by an experienced fabric cleaning technician, if possible. SERVPRO removes smoke damage by cleaning surfaces, fabric, and upholstery. In some cases, it may be necessary to replace your home items or elements like furniture, drywall, and flooring. 

Property Damage

Fires can cause a devastating amount of property damage in a short period. The extent of this damage depends on the fire type and location and speed of emergency response teams.
