Fire Damage is Often Water Damage Too

Fire and Water Damage

Fire damage is devastating and can bring many more problems if it is not treated correctly. Any fire damage in your home affects not only the area where the fire started, but also surrounding areas and rooms. A kitchen fire makes soot that can permanently damage all electronics. The smell of smoke can permeate the entire house. And, whether you like it or not, a fire emergency often brings water damage if a fire department needs to douse the fire.

    In our situation at Harmony Grove Baptist in Canton, when our insurance company was first called, Chad Franklin came soon after they were notified. He was very cordial and told us upfront what he felt that we would have to get to work on right away. The next day the big fans were brought and dehumidifiers were started. After that everyone that we met that came to help us were very caring. They showed their concern as if they were going through the terrible trauma we were. Each person that came to help was very trustworthy and I, myself, felt as if I had found a new friend for life. What a great crew of people working to help us feel better and get the job done. We would like to welcome each member of ServiceMaster to our church anytime. Thank you so much for the service to us. Friends for life.
