Fire Damage: Why Fire Cleanup is Important

2/4/2022 (Permalink)

Common Causes of House Fires

After a fire, experts recommend getting assistance from professionals to clean up all fire damage in your property. A poor clean-up will lead to potential problems in the future, this is why the fire damage cleanup should be done by a professional. If your home or business in Greenville, SC has been damaged by a fire, here are three good reasons why you should take care of the fire damage by contacting our team at SERVPRO of East Greenville County.

Fire Damage Assessment

Inspecting and test adjoining rooms of your property to determine the extent of the fire, smoke, and soot damage is a critical first step in the fire cleanup process. This step is crucial to developing a plan of action. Fire damage can often compromise windows, walls, and roofs. To maintain security and to protect against further damage, we can board up missing windows and walls and place tarps on damaged roofs.

Health risks

           The indoor air in your property after a fire may be contaminated. Even parts that didn’t catch fire may still be covered in soot. Inhalation of these small particles could cause issues in the lungs, especially for those with breathing issues.

Chemical Pollution

           Ash will not be the only hazard after the fire; items in your property like paint, electronics, cleaning supplies, etc., could change chemical properties after their exposure to high temps. New chemicals will be released into the air, making the area unsafe to breathe in.

           If you need professional assistance, SERVPRO of East Greenville County is here to help you with your fire damage restoration needs, call us today to schedule an inspection.

Dealing with Fire Damage Cleanup

1/2/2022 (Permalink)

Let our SERVPRO team of trained professionals help you with your Fire Damage Cleanup.

If you have experienced a fire in your home or business, dealing with the resulting cleanup can be overwhelming.  There are a few steps that you can take to reduce the spread of soot throughout your property.  First you should turn off the ventilation systems in your home or business.  HVAC systems can pull the smoke and soot into the system and then deposit it throughout your property.  The second step you should take if possible is attempt to ventilate your property by opening up windows.  This will allow the smoke and odor to dissipate and escape through the windows.  Soot deposits left behind can cause staining and corrosion of certain materials. It is important to know what you can clean and how to clean it to prevent further damage. 

In some cases, it may be necessary to call in a Fire and Water Damage Professional to assess the extent of the damage and to provide a plan to restore your home. Many Fire and Water Damage Restoration Company’s will provide an onsite assessment for your home or business. If you feel this is necessary try reaching out to your local insurance agent for help. They may be able to provide a list of restoration vendors in your area.  In addition, try looking online for top-rated professionals in your area.  It is important check out a company before you make a decision to use them.  Read local online reviews and check to see if they are listed with your local Better Business Bureau.  Once you have worked through this process you should feel confident and ready to hire a professional to assist you with your cleanup needs.

If you have recently experienced a fire in your Greenville, SC home or business and need the help of a professional. Contact our team at SERVPRO of East Greenville County we have a team of trained professional that are here to help.
