Fire Damage Fire and Water: Reclaiming Your Home From the Elements The fire damage left after the flames are overcome may be your primary concern, but it is not the only issue that must be resolved.

If your home catches fire, there will likely be quite a few problems that need to be addressed. Fire damage is only one of the issues with which you have to contend when your home catches fire. A common side effect of a house fire is excess water and its damaging aftermath.

Extraction and Disinfection

When a fire breaks out in your home in Johnson City, TN, it damages everything it comes into contact with. In addition to the destruction it leaves in its wake, it puts out a substantial amount of heat, which can lead to a myriad of problems:

• Busted pipes
• Melted supply lines
• Cracked toilets
• Broken water tank

Even if by some miracle none of these problems occur, a lot of water comes out of the fire hose used to put out those flames. It’s almost a guarantee, therefore, that any home with fire damage also has significant water damage. Before fire restoration specialists can deal with the soot and smoke, they have to clean up the excess water.

Cleaning and Purifying

After the water has been removed, the technicians can tackle the soot. Every surface in every room where there was fire is probably going to be covered in soot, so every surface has to be cleaned. The techniques the professionals use remove the soot while protecting the surface from any further damage. When all the soot is gone, the smoke cleaning begins. Industrial air scrubbers are used to purify the air, removing not only the smell of the smoke but the particles that cause it. Foggers may also be used to sanitize smoke-infused rooms.

The fire damage left after the flames are overcome may be your primary concern, but it is not the only issue that must be resolved. Expert technicians in Johnson City, TN, who specialize in fire and water damage can offer a comprehensive restoration service. For more information, visit http://www.SERVPROwashingtoncountytn.com/
