Things to Know About Your Pensacola Residential Property After a Fire Strikes

After the fire is out, you might thing that you do not have to worry about any more damage occurring to your home. However, you would be wrong, as the smoke and soot left behind can be even more damaging than the flames themselves.

Smoke can spread to each room of your Pensacola home, even with a small fire. Additional fire damage can be caused by smoke particles getting into your air ducts and HVAC system. No matter how localized the fire was, it can impact the entire home, with after-effects lingering around for a long time. Therefore, you need to call in professional restoration technicians, such as those at SERVPRO. Restoring your home after a fire is a multi-step process that is best left to experienced professionals who can find and solve issues that are less obvious.

One of the most hazardous and sneakiest effects of a house fire is smoke damage. After your home has experienced any size fire, smoke billows and spreads through the whole structure. The smoke travels to cooler areas of your home, going through any wiring crevice or pipeline, smothering and staining your home with an unpleasant odor.

Even if you are very handy with home repairs, smoke and soot from a fire are hardly a DIY project, which is why having our staff at SERVPRO come in and help you clean up is important. We can find all the hidden smoke damage in your vents and air ducts, plus help you to restore many of your possessions.

Without our expertise and professional equipment, tiny smoke particles get into your HVAC system and can linger undetected for months. Breathing in these particles is detrimental to the health of you and your family. You can rest assured that our technicians can thoroughly clean your home, including these invisible areas, of all smoke and soot damage, so your home is safe again.
