If there is one thing no homeowner wants to face in their lifetime, it is seeing their home damaged by a fire. While in some cases the damage may be relatively minor, in other situations the damage can be catastrophic. Whatever the case may be, you will be facing a cleanup process that seems impossible and overwhelming. Needless to say, this is one cleaning project you cannot handle on your own, which is why you need the experts at Rocky Mountain Restoration to deal with these common types of fire damage.
Smoke and Chemical Odors
When you have a fire in your home, one of the biggest problems afterwards will be strong odors from smoke and toxic chemicals. Since this can present health risks such as respiratory illnesses or other similar problems, it needs to be addressed as fast as possible. Once trained technicians from RMR arrive on the scene, they can assess the situation and then begin the process of detecting, neutralizing, and removing toxic gases and chemicals that are contributing to the horrible smell.
Once everything starts to settle down after the fire, you will unfortunately discover soot covering almost everything in your home. Depending on the size of the fire and how long it took firefighters to bring it under control, soot from your home’s furnace will be covering walls, furniture, personal belongings, and virtually everything else.
Water and Mold Damage
While it is of course necessary for firefighters to use water to extinguish the fire, this will lead to extensive water and mold damage to your home. This will be especially noticeable on building materials, since mold can begin growing on these surfaces in as little as 24 hours. If left untreated, this will only spread throughout your home, creating an even bigger problem that will need to be addressed.
