Fire Damage and Hidden Dangers
Figuring out what to do or where to start after a fire can be overwhelming for homeowners.
Make sure to inspect the structural integrity of your home. Make sure to inspect walls, floors, staircases, foundation, etc.
If the fire was severe, contact an electrician to inspect the wiring around your home. Contact a repair service if you suspect your appliances were affected by the fire. You don’t want to risk starting another fire.
Soot can cause real damage to your personal belongings. Within minutes, it can discolor plastic surfaces, and within hours it can stain grout, metals, countertops, appliances, and furniture finishes. In a few days it can permanently stain walls, upholstery, clothes, and floors.
Breathing asbestos fibers could be very dangerous, specially for children and the elderly. Homes built prior to 1980 are more susceptible to these dangers, that is why professional remediation is used when dealing with a fire.
The professionals at SERVPRO of Henry and Spalding Counties and SERVPRO of Clayton County are here to help with all of your remediation and restoration needs! Call us at 678-432-3003.
How to deal with a contaminated water damage
If you have any questions, call us at 678-432-3003
Contaminated water, sometimes called black water or category 3 water, is extremely unsanitary.
Calling an experienced company to deal with this type of damage can increase the chances of successfully restoring your home or business to its preloss condition. Do not touch anything that has been in contact with sewage, seawater, or standing water with your bare hands. If you must enter the affected area, please consider wearing gloves, boots, and a face mask to avoid contact with contaminated items and prevent exposure to unknown hazards.
If you are dealing with this type of water damage, do not take unnecessary risks and call the experts at SERVPRO of Henry and Spalding Counties and SERVPRO of Clayton County at 678-432-3003.
Note: If you believe you have been exposed to harmful waste, OSHA recommends a post-exposure medical evaluation. Call your local health department or doctor.
Cleaning up after a fire
Dealing with the aftermath of a residential fire can be very traumatic. How extensive the damage is depends on the intensity of the fire, how long it burned for, and several other factors. If the outside of your home was damaged, contact a professional company to restore the property to its pre-fire condition.
SERVPRO of Henry and Spalding Counties and SERVPRO of Clayton County has the right equipment and technicians to clean all types of stonework (such as brick and concrete) and use straightforward cleaning techniques to restore the outside of your property.
Our crew can inspect the damage, and if there is no structural damage, use a mild cleaning solution to wash the smoke and soot damage from different surfaces. Real damage occurs when combustible materials burn for a long time and the only way to clean surfaces is by jet washing them.
