The Fire is Out, But Your Troubles Are Not Over

6/11/2021 (Permalink)

Smoke billowing from a building on fire. When the fire is out, you still need the help of professionals to properly handle the cleaning and restoration.

A quickly extinguished fire may seem like the end of your troubles, but the reality is the fire’s aftermath causes far more destruction than the typical homeowner expects. An assessment by a professional restoration company is a good investment, making certain the cleanup plan does not exacerbate the situation. SERVPRO of South & West Spokane County specializes in the restoration of the damage done by fires large or small.

Calling a restoration firm helps you determine the extent of damage caused by smoke and soot and devise a plan to return all areas of your house to preloss condition. We are eager to help.

Technicians inspect all areas of your home for soot, including your HVAC system. The heat and incomplete burning of plastics and fabric release fine and sometimes sticky substances that coat surfaces and lodge in clothing, furniture, and linens. If it is pulled into the heating and cooling system, it recirculates until the ducts are cleaned and sealed.

Our crew deep cleans the soot away, using a variety of methods depending on the texture of the contaminated surfaces and the characteristics of the debris. We match professional cleaning products to the tasks; expect different techniques for the varying soot presentations. We also evaluate documents, and personal belongings, identifying items that can be restored, and recommending disposal of those that cannot. It is likely professional sorting saves you money as an overwhelmed homeowner may throw everything away. SERVPRO team members are also proficient at eliminating odors, a significant lingering effect after a smoldering fire.

SERVPRO works with your home insurance company, making certain you receive compensation for destroyed items and at least part of the cost of our services. Our familiarity with proper fire damage restoration decreases the time your home is filled with soot and smells, quickly returning your living areas to a fresh and comfortable condition, “Like it never even happened.”

SERVPRO of South & West Spokane County offers the workforce, professional products, and equipment to restore your home after fire damage. Call (509) 534-0566 anytime 24/7 and we'll be there to help.
