Damage From a Fire Can Be More Extensive Than Meets the Eye

6/5/2022 (Permalink)

When a fire occurs, the damage it creates can be overwhelming. Initially, it may look like you just need to clear away that space, remove the drywall, and handle the flooring. Yet fire damage tends to be much more invasive than you realize. It is critical, then, to have a licensed team on hand to help you with the project.

Handling the Damage Expertly

The first step is always to handle the fire damage properly. That means removing all of the damage from the space. From there, it is necessary to remove any wet and damaged material resulting from putting the fire out. You may also have to remove debris further – such as pulling out more of the drywall to ensure the underlying plumbing and electrical work is in good condition. If not, more repairs are going to be necessary.

Beware of Smoke Damage

Another key concern is the home’s smoke damage. Smoke can travel beyond the area of the fire, often throughout the whole home. It can enter into your home’s ventilation, easily spreading throughout the space. This requires proper cleansing by a licensed technician because if you do not take care of this, the odor of smoke will persist.
