Our Professionals Explain The Secondary Effects Of Fire Damage In Spokane
Secondary Effects Of Fire Damage In Spokane Homes
After first responders have done their job for your Spokane residence and put out the blaze, you get to start working on the steps it takes to return your property to preloss condition. The trouble is, you have no real understanding of how deep the damage is in areas of the property without a proper assessment from professionals like ours. Overcoming all of the effects from the fire is rarely as simple as the structural damage, smoke, and soot that comes with this incident.
While these effects must also get addressed throughout the fire damage restoration process for your Spokane residence, secondary effects and incidental damages can often prove more pressing to resolve. Water damage is a good example of this, as it often requires a large volume of water to quell spreading fires, this pooling occurs in all of these affected areas and requires professional restoration technicians like our SERVPRO team to work quickly to restore.
With the severity of the situation in a widespread structure fire, homeowners might believe that water damage is the least of their concerns. The longer that moisture persists in affected areas, the more likely situations like mold growth become. The saturation of material can affect down into areas like the basement or crawlspace, which if it goes unnoticed, can allow severe mold colonization that can present health effects to occupants of the house and further structural degradation.
Our initial assessment of the property when our SERVPRO professionals arrive is to address the full spread of the damage and secondary effects throughout the house. This inspection can help our technicians to identify areas like the basement and crawlspace that could have become susceptible to water damage and mold growth, and take preventative steps to keep microbial growth from occurring in these areas if it has not already begun.
Fire damage is rarely simple to overcome, but with the right professional assistance, can get accomplished promptly and thoroughly. Our SERVPRO of Northeast Spokane fire restoration technicians is available 24/7 by calling (509) 474-9144.
