Fire and Smoke Remediation in Harrisburg | ServiceMaster Restore
A fire can be an especially devastating for a family. While most people escape without any immediate physical harm, they often are left with a home damaged by fire, smoke and water. In almost every case of fire-related damage, it pays for a homeowner to deal with a professional remediation company that has experience with similar situations. Here is why:
- Fire damage – In addition to possibly causing significant damage, a fire also can leave the home exposed to the elements and allow subsequent damage. The first priority of a remediation company should be to secure the home from the worst ravages of Mother Nature and any intruders — wild animal or human. If you call ServiceMaster, we guarantee to have an initial crew on site within 24 hours.
- Smoke damage – One of the lesser-known damages that can occur during a fire is smoke infiltration into other parts of the home. It is truly remarkable how quickly smoke can penetrate the paint, carpet and furniture in undamaged portions of a home. Many homeowners attribute the odor in the unscorched areas to the damaged portion and do not realize until much later that their entire home has been affected. It can be a costly mistake.
- Other damage – Firefighters have one goal — to extinguish the fire. If they come to your home to fight a fire, they could cause enormous damage to the house and its contents. Some of the damage will come from the use of their tools, but most of it will be caused by the water used to extinguish the blaze. Mold can rapidly become a problem. The best remediation companies do not treat just the obvious damage, but also search for problems underneath the obviously affected surfaces.
