A fire can take place in the home at any time. When a fire breaks out in the home, it can damage one room or move on room-by-room until the entire interior of the home is destroyed. Thankfully, restoration of your home is possible. Professional fire damage restoration services from ServiceMaster of Mid Nebraska can help to restore your home to its former state, depending on the extent of the damage. When your Lexington, NE, home is affected by fire, you’ll quickly discover how complex fire damage cleanup can be.
It’s common knowledge that flames will melt and burn items in your home in addition to destroying the flooring, walls, and ceilings. Items that have been affected by the flames may be salvaged, depending on the extent of the damage. However, the flames are not the only culprit when it comes to fire damage to your home.
Smoke & Soot
Smoke and soot are products of fire that greatly affect the home. Smoke creates an odor that is difficult to remove from the home without the use of professional grade products. Our professionals use specialized deodorizers during the fire damage restoration process in your Lexington, NE, home to thoroughly remove the odor that smoke can cause. Soot is another product of a fire that can cover areas of the home that are not affected by the flames. Soot is a black coating that can cover walls, floors, ceilings, and belongings. Items that can be salvaged will need to be cleaned in order to remove the soot left behind after the fire has been extinguished.
Many homeowners don’t think about water as being a damaging element since water is used to put out the flames. However, when the fire department uses their large water hoses to extinguish the fire, the water can settle into your home. You may have standing water that will need to be removed or water that has soaked into the flooring and walls that will need to be removed so that mold and mildew do not form.
Overall, there are several aspects that will affect your home after a fire. At ServiceMaster of Mid Nebraska, we are well equipped to handle all fire damage issues in the home.
