Answered: Your Most Burning Questions About Tallahassee Fire Damage
Fire Damage can Leave Your Windows Blackened in Tallahassee
The scene of a fire with smoke spewing out of windows and firefighters' vent holes in the roof does not always mean the complete loss of the home. Even smaller fires can cause smoke to pour out of open windows. This often causes neighbors in Tallahassee to call the fire department and check to see if they might help in some way. SERVPRO advises our customers never to re-enter a burning house and to leave such dangerous activities to the fire department.
Once the firefighters extinguish the flames and check to rule out any hot spots that might restart a fire, SERVPRO can check your house for the severity of fire damage in Tallahassee. When a fire stayed contained in a single area of a home, the rest of the home merely needs extensive cleaning. The windows in these areas, as well as mirrors and other hard, smooth surfaces, often contain high amounts of carbon residue. This black soot can also contain other components from plastics and other synthetic materials that burned during the fire.
Replacing windows in otherwise undamaged areas can impose unnecessary expenses on the homeowner. Cleaning these structural elements of a home while we also restore more seriously damaged areas of your house reduces your expenses and helps your family get back to normal routines faster. Reducing your overall costs means your budget also bounces back more quickly.
Our ability to clean these items without their removal also keeps your home more secure against vandals and looters. Our presence during the time we work can help deter curious teens and others who want to see what a fire damaged house looks like, protecting both them and your family's belongings.
There are many aspects to a fire, and how it can affect your home. When we clean the interior and work on removing damaged items, we take these different issues into consideration of how they interact with other parts of the mitigation and restoration process.
