Save Your Home from Fire and Smoke Damage

Fire is one of the most damaging – and scary – incidents that can happen to a home or building. The risk of fire can create a spectrum of damage including smoke damage, water damage, and potential harm to one’s health and safety. However, with new technologies today, homes have a far better chance of survival than in previous years. Homeowners are now able to hire fire restoration services to help put their lives back together. This post will discuss what fire damage affects and why it is important to perform a restoration.


Health Effects of Fine Particles and Smoke

Smoke damage from fire is about more than mere odor. Just as the odor from a cigarette smoker contains carcinogenic particulates, so does the odor from a house fire. People who breathe in smoke particles for too long run the risk of respiratory symptoms, such as painful breathing or aggravation in asthma or other chronic lung diseases. Fire restoration should proceed immediately after ventilating your home from smoke. Contact an experienced fire and smoke remediation specialist to clean up any lingering damage from a fire.

Fire Impacts the Whole Home

Fire can start small, but suddenly spread throughout the home and destroy your properties. Since all surfaces, carpets, and furniture need special attention, a fire cleanup service is necessary to ensure that the job is done right, the first time. Fire restoration specialists have the proper safety equipment and professional-grade products to thoroughly eradicate smoke damage and lingering particulates. If necessary, our Rapid Dry experts can rebuild and restore any part of your home into its original condition.

Water Damage

Once the fire trucks have left the scene, every homeowner is happy to see that they have not suffered a total loss. However, it likely took a lot of water to douse the flames. That water damage needs to be cleaned up as soon as possible to avoid future problems with mold or mildew.
