Fire Damage

image

After a severe fire, your property could have structural issues and damages that need to be addressed immediately. Even after a seemingly minor fire, your home or business may have poor indoor air quality and be filled with smoke, dust and debris. No matter how small or large the fire, flames and smoke can affect and cause damage to your entire home. That’s why homeowners who have experienced a fire should contact the professional cleaning and restoration service, ServiceMaster of Buncombe County, to address damages. Our goal is to get your home back to pre-loss condition or better.

Fire damage services include:

  • General Cleaning
  • Carpet and Upholstery Cleaning or Replacement
  • Safety Inspections
  • Removal of Burnt Appliances, Possessions and Furniture

What Steps Should Be Taken in the Aftermath of a Fire in Your Home?

If a fire has occurred in your home or business, the most important step is to contact a professional cleaning and restoration team as soon as possible. Without the help and guidance of professionals, it is extremely possible that structural damage could increase. Water and other liquids used to extinguish the fire may exacerbate the damage if not cleaned up properly and as quickly as possible. Additionally, fires may contain biohazardous materials which will need to be removed by experts trained in proper safety protocols.

An inspection and consultation by the professionals at ServiceMaster of Buncombe County is not only necessary to assess and determine the extent of fire damage, but also will make the cleanup and restoration process less chaotic and stressful for everyone involved.

Restoring Your Home After a Fire

After you’ve contacted our professional cleanup and restoration team, the first step in restoring your home or business is a comprehensive assessment and consultation. We need to determine the extent of the damages and how best to proceed. Once this step has been completed, the restoration process will begin with removing all possessions, appliances and furniture that may have been affected by flames, smoke or water.

After these items are removed, the process of addressing any water damage will begin. It is essential that all damage caused by the water, liquid and foam used to put out the flames be addressed first. The property must be completely dried to prevent secondary issues caused by mold and mildew growth.

To get rid of the smoke smell throughout your home, carpeting, drapes and furniture may be cleaned or may need to be replaced based on the severity of the fire. Your possessions will also be removed and assessed to determine whether or not they are a loss or could be salvaged through cleaning and repairs. During this assessment, we will work with you to create an inventory of the items that need to be replaced. You can share that list with your insurance company.

If damages are severe, repairs and renovations to the internal structure of your home may be necessary to make sure that the property is safe for your family to inhabit again. The structural integrity of the home will be inspected and assessed to determine whether or not ceilings, floors or walls need to be patched or fully repaired.

If you’re a resident of Asheville, North Carolina or surrounding areas including Marshall, Weaverville, Candler, Arden, Fletcher, Black Mountain or Biltmore Lake and have recently experienced a fire in your home, contact the experts at ServiceMaster of Buncombe County. We have the tools, knowledge and experience to take care of fire and smoke damage services in order to return your property to pre-loss condition.
