Call SERVPRO Franchise Professionals to Handle the Fire Damage in Your Tallahassee Home
A fire can inflict severe damage to your house and its remnants like smoke residues, chemical retardants, and ash may cause further destruction. It is, therefore, vital to call licensed professionals to mitigate the fire damage. Experienced professionals from SERVPRO can restore your Tallahassee home to its original condition.
Can I go back to my house after fire damage?
In the aftermath of fire damage in your Tallahassee residence, it may seem safe for you to go back to your house to assess the damage. After all, the worst part is over, right? Wrong. You must let an expert determine the safety of the structure before you go back in. The effects of the fire may last long after the fire itself has died away, posing a risk to your health and safety.
Why is smoke dangerous?
Smoke can be dry or wet based on how hot the flames of a fire are and the type of particles it releases. Whether it is wet or dry smoke, the particles may contain various chemicals. Wet smoke creates an oily residue that can penetrate and get into varnishes and surfaces. It can be challenging to clean wet smoke, and once it makes its way into a building’s pockets. Dry smoke forms a powdery residue that may coat surfaces. When smoke interacts with surfaces, they can continue discoloring or weakening. Eliminating and cleaning smoke residues from a home quickly helps prevent costly secondary damage.
Can I stay in the house during the restoration process?
It is a common practice to find accommodation at another place while the restoration process is taking place. However, this mainly depends on the extent of fire damage. If the fire only affected a small area of your home, you can stay there while we restore the house.
