Clean up for fire damage is a lengthy process that requires professional services and industrial equipment. It is also important to begin the clean up and restoration process immediately following the event. In the aftermath of a fire, victims are faced with insurance matters, housing arrangements, and possible health concerns. Consequently, homeowners often do not make salvage efforts a top priority and this could have huge financial ramifications in the long run. In this situation, the services of Cajun’s certified fire restoration team are invaluable.
In addition to the obvious damages created by heat, flames, and soot, water and smoke create additional problems. Immediate clean up is critical to minimize damages and restoration costs.
DID YOU KNOW:
- Within minutes after a fire is extinguished, acidic soot residue causes discoloration of plastics. Certain materials like marble and alabaster could be marred permanently.
- Within hours, acidic soot can cause yellowing of bath fixtures, countertops, and the tarnishing of unprotected metals. Furniture and appliances may also discolor.
- Within days, acid residues may permanently discolor walls and cause corrosion and rusting of metals. Flooring made of wood or vinyl must be replaced (or at the least refinished), and textiles such as clothing and furniture upholstery becomes irreparably stained.
- Within weeks, carpet may become permanently ruined due to discoloration. Silver-plated fixtures are irreversibly corroded. Glass, crystal, and china may become severely etched and pitted due to extended exposure to acidic soot residue.
In addition to structural damage, odor removal can present another challenge. Further, water damage caused by first responders in an effort to extinguish the flames further complicates matters.
