Fort Mill Fire Damage Crisis Recovery
SERVPRO Technicians Focus On Remediation and Restoration After a Fire in Your Home
Home fires occur much more frequently in Fort Mill than one might expect given that most do not make the news. Many are quickly extinguished, and families are not displaced for long or at all as restoration efforts go forward. Although you are far from alone in recovering from a home fire, you can be among the most satisfied with the process if you choose a reputable recovery firm.
If your dwelling’s fire damage in Fort Mill is typical, a blaze first breaks out in your kitchen. A pot boils dry, or a deep fryer overflows, engulfing your kitchen in flames. Quick work with a fire extinguisher may put out the fire itself, but now you confront the aftermath of sticky soot, smoke, and a smell that persists. If the fire strikes while your HVAC system is engaged, you can feel as though you will never move past the lingering effects unless you engage our comprehensive fire damage restoration services.
After the local fire officials give you the go-ahead, invite SERVPRO to partner with you to complete the tasks necessary to return your house to preloss condition. We send a seasoned project manager to assess the condition of your home and create an efficient recovery plan. Fire damage restoration includes, at a minimum, deep cleaning, debris disposal, and a deodorization evaluation.
If water was used to extinguish the flames, you also have a water damage issue on your hands. It comes as a surprise, but the water damage, if any, must be remediated before the SERVPRO crew focuses its attention on charring, soot, and smoke. Water increases the threat of slipping and falling during fire damage recovery efforts. Plus, water causes significant and permanent deterioration and damage if left waiting for a solution. Mold can grow within just a couple of days, fueled by damp gypsum board, waterlogged floors, and hidden pockets of moisture collecting between walls and over ceilings.
SERVPRO crews are familiar with both water and fire damage restoration, so we do not miss a beat, dealing with the water before the fire issues. Then we match cleaning products and methods to the fire residues remaining. Light ash and dry soot vacuum and dry sponge up well. Sticker grease fire coatings may need solvents and abrasive tools to dislodge. An inspection of your HVAC system reveals whether it also needs a cleaning, although at the least a complete change of filters is wise after the fire damage cleanup is completed to prevent depositing residual soot.
