How Fire Damage Affects Nashua Homes After the Flames Are Gone
Damage Needs Quick Action to Ensure the Best Outcome
Fires are devastating, and the immediate concern when one happens is to keep everyone safe and combat the flames. However, after the flames are gone, most homeowners quickly realize that the trouble has only begun. It is not just the devastating fire itself that can ruin a house's structure and contents, but the problems that a fire event leaves behind.
If you are a homeowner dealing with fire damage in Nashua, you may have noticed that more issues have cropped up well after emergency ended. Here are some of the lasting effects of fire damage and how SERVPRO can help.
Smoke will not only impart an unpleasant smell in your home that sticks and is difficult to eliminate, but it can also permeate just about any porous surface in your home, from walls and furniture to clothing and documents. Off the shelf cleaners will not get rid of smoke from fire damage, but our technicians have the tools and knowledge to deeply and thoroughly clean to get rid of smoke smells for good.
Mold and Mildew
Water is typically used to fight a fire, but the problem is that the water is then left to sit and soaks into the floors, walls, and surfaces of your house. This leads to the development of mold and mildew, which are quite destructive on their own. SERVPRO is careful to extract moisture left from fire emergencies as well as control humidity to prevent the formation of mold and mildew.
Soot is particles that result from fire damage, and they are notorious for wearing through everything from paint to electronics and even furniture. When soot collects in large masses it is visible as a dark, almost chalky looking substance -- you may have seen it on your walls, mantle, or on high surfaces. We use industry leading techniques and equipment to ensure soot does not continue to pose a threat to your home and possessions.
