Can a Montrose Home Require Fire Damage Restoration if There Is No Fire?
You Can Call SERVPRO to Help With Secondary Fire Restoration
Many people associate fire damage with a physical fire in a specific property. However, it is possible to require fire damage restoration even when your home does not burn down. Some likely causes include puff backs if you have a furnace or fire in neighboring properties that results in soot, ash, and other debris driven by air currents accumulating in your property.
That your property is not burned down does not mean fire damage restoration in your Montrose home should be taken lightly. The fine debris can spread all over your home where it can cause significant problems over time, including indoor air quality issues or rusting of metallic fittings or surfaces since soot has acidic properties. Luckily, it is possible to complete most of the restoration work through cleaning. SERVPRO eases the process by using a variety of simple and advanced cleaning processes.
Regular processes used during house fire cleanup are helpful in such cases, including:
- Pre-testing various surfaces to identify residue type and spread patterns
- Use of dry cleaning approaches such as vacuuming
- Widespread deodorization within the property
One significant difference in cases involving secondary fire damage only is that damage may not be readily identifiable. For instance, only a thin film of residue may be deposited on vast surfaces such as walls or ceilings, resulting in slight changes such as yellowing. Our SERVPRO technicians can help ensure you do not miss such changes by doing simple tests such as running a cleaning sponge along the wall surface.
