Is it Safe to Stay in a Bridgewater House After a Small Fire?
Get Your Bridgewater Home Professionally Restored After a Fire Loss by SERVPRO
After a fire of any size in your home, it is better to find another place to stay until the loss area gets cleaned up. The reason for this is two-fold. First, soot is unhealthy to breathe and can be a skin irritant. Second, remaining in the home can spread odorous soot to other areas of the house, particularly if the HVAC is running.
How Can Professional Fire Damage Cleanup Help?
There are many actions that the pros at SERVPRO know work in the restoration of fire damage in Bridgewater homes. Since airborne soot particles can exist smaller than the human eye can see, a crucial part of the fire loss mitigation includes using advanced equipment to capture the particulate. Standard actions include:
- Removal and disposal of charred items to lessen odors
- Deployment of air scrubbers to improve air quality during mitigation
- Use of odor control equipment to neutralize fire odors
Smoke Damage Removal
After a fire, smoke residues cover anywhere the fire burned. The materials consumed by the fire define the type of smoke damage left behind, and the surfaces it is upon determines how easily it cleans up. SERVPRO techs test the residues first to determine the type of smoke residues and then choose the appropriate cleaning agent for the kind of surface it is on.
Making Your Home Safe for Habitation
Once SERVPRO techs remove the smoke residue and run equipment to capture airborne motes, the final step ensures that soot does not spread throughout the home. A common area to check is the ductwork in the home, and a filter change for the HVAC may get recommended.
