A Small Fire Causes Significant Damage
This video serves as a visual reminder of just how much a fire can affect your home. What started out as an oscillating catching on fire in the middle of the night, quickly escalates to a full-home fire restoration process. Thankfully, our SERVPRO team is available around the clock and has the training and expertise to handle all matters related to the restoration.
Even though this home in Azusa did not suffer structural damage, the smoke managed to travel throughout the house, invading closets, cabinets and even the attic. Our SERVPRO team applies its expertise in managing the cleanup of different materials and swiftly takes action. Any items beyond repair, such as open food items in the pantry, are discarded. Conversely, our team works on packing up other personal property to store and clean while the rest of the home is being treated.
Even though the fire happened in the living room, our team is knowledgeable enough to know that the insulation in the attic is also affected. In this home we will remove it, replace it and re-seal the attic for the homeowner’s protection. Once we remove soot from the rest of the walls and surfaces and clean its structure thoroughly, clean seal paint application may be necessary as a final step.
Fire loss can be sizable even when it is resolved quickly. Keeping your fire alarms in working order and calling our SERVPRO team can help you mitigate that loss by preventing extended exposure to smoke, soot and any extinguishing agents used by the fire department. We are available 24/7 to help you as soon as you face an emergency.
Don’t underestimate the impact of a fire in your home. The ramifications of smoke and soot traveling through your house can be significant and only a professional team can help you address them in a comprehensive manner. The large sooty deposits trapped by the sliding screen door leading to the patio exemplifies the pervasive nature of smoke damage. Call our SERVPRO of Azusa/Covina team at (626)-387-4111 as soon as you need us and let us leave your home “Like it never even happened.”
