FIRE DAMAGE REPAIR AND RESTORATION
Fires can be especially damaging to your house or business. When the fire trucks leave, your structure will likely have problems with not only fire and smoke damage, but also wide-spread water damage and flooding from firefighting efforts. IPM’s IICRC Certified Fire Technicians have specialized fire and water damage recovery training and experience to quickly bring your home to pre-fire condition. In addition they can take away the pervasive smoke scent and deep-clean soot from upholstery and carpet.
WHAT ARE THE NORMAL TYPES OF FIRES THAT MAY OCCUR?
Food from the oven or stove has burned, departing strong burnt food smells and smoke residue on structure surfaces.
Multiple natural and artificial items in the home have burned creating black smoke residue on contents and floors and synthetic smoking odors. Here, disaster corrosion mitigation is required to protect at-risk building materials and contents.
Trees and shrubs, shrubs and bushes have used up and smoke has penetrated the framework from exterior, so smoke residue and odors are present.
Heating gadgets such as oil-fired furnaces, or wood burning stove flumes can malfunction and spread smoke throughout the structure.
Fire damage runs beyond initial damage
Ash and smoke can continue steadily to cause destruction and corrosion to materials if they’re left behind.
Odors from smoke damage will remain in an area or a home long following the fire, and continue to steadily cause problems if they’re not properly treated.
In a minute, surfaces and other floors can be stained.
In a couple of hours, finishes on appliances for the kitchen and bathroom can tarnish.
Due to static electricity soot will gravitate toward your appliances, and smoke will tarnish metal items quickly.
