what to do when your home is damaged due to a fire?
There aren't many things for which we have to wait any longer. We've really gotten to the heart of a lot of scenarios that necessitate a sit-and-wait approach at this point, short of teleportation. That's a fantastic thing!
As much as some may wear "I had to wait for it in my day" as a badge of honour, having rapid access to so much of what we need is certainly a blessing.
Take, for example, SERVPRO's support. (Did you think we wrote all of this only to talk about something else?) Waiting for assistance isn't an option when you have an overnight problem at home—not only as a matter of convenience, but also as a matter of urgency.
Because there's more at stake than just the initial damage, SERVPRO is available 24 hours a day to handle your emergency cleanup and recovery.
Following a fire.
The first wave of a blazing fire causes visible harm, usually by leaving proof in the form of things you can no longer see. However, unfinished combustion leaves a permanent artefact in the form of thick, black soot, which coats your carpet and plasters your interior with ebony goo minutes after a fire.
Soon after, it becomes irreversible, leaving your home with soot stains and a lingering smoky odour that can't be easily removed, necessitating the complete replacement of your walls and carpets to restore that clean, fresh sensation. This catastrophe can be avoided as much as possible if quick action is taken.
Following water damage.
Once the containment barrier is breached, the race begins: You just have 48 hours to rid your property of intruding water and the excess moisture that results, or you'll have a mould problem on top of your water problem. You now run the risk of developing health problems as well as causing structural damage to your walls and other structures. It's already too late if you have to wait until the weekend to seek help for your home.
In addition to these possibilities, your home may be damaged by storms, natural disasters, or other unforeseen events that necessitate rapid attention. SERVPRO is always available—right now, we're on the other side of this screen, waiting for your call or click. We'll be on our way as soon as we get the alert, regardless of the day or hour.
