Even the Smallest Fires Pose a Risk

Whether it’s from a faulty electrical outlet, improper disposal of matches, cigarette butts or any number of other fire starters, some fires remain in a single area or room. While the remainder of the home is safe, there are other risks, such as structural damage, or the chance for another fire.

Homeowners may not even be aware of these dangers until fire restoration services are called in to survey and repair the area. The only way to guarantee complete recovery is to hire a professional restoration service to thoroughly investigate and address the area.

The Dangers of Smoke

While fire related hazards are more apparent and understandable, many homeowners make the mistake of assuming that smoke, at worst, leaves only an odor or light discoloration behind. Some homeowners even try to clean smoke stained areas themselves, often making the problem worse. The oils and salts found in human skin react with smoke residue in a way that causes more significant—and even more permanent—property damage. Proper cleanup protocols and techniques are essential.

Smoke should be a top concern for homeowners who have fallen victim to a fire. More than mere property damage, smoke poses a health risk; it leaves behind toxic residue that can be inhaled or absorbed into the body from contact, so smoke can be detrimental to the health of all home occupants.

Given it’s acidic nature and ability to travel virtually anywhere in the house, smoke can also cause further damage to property over time. Paint and furniture finishes can slowly be eaten away, and electrical components can be damaged, creating conditions for a future fire.

While the destruction of fire may leave once the flames have been extinguished, smoke lingers, destroying property, creating conditions for future fires and causing unhealthy conditions.

Smoke damage restoration services can effectively clean an area exposed to smoke and restore property that has been damaged. Even if there aren’t any clear indications of smoke damage, it’s usually a smart idea to have an area previously exposed to fire properly checked and cleaned.

If a fire of any size has recently occurred in your home or place of business, make every effort to call in a fire or smoke restoration service as soon as possible. Helping home and business owners all across San Francisco, Allied Restoration has been able to recover and clean countless amounts of lost and damaged property. Our 24/7 emergency response systems can provide help during the most desperate of times.

Preventing Water Damage After Extinguishing the Fire

Water damage is probably the last concern of home- and business owners after a fire. When the fire department responds, its primary goal is to make sure the flames extinguish and there’s no existing threat of fire.

As such, large amounts of water are used during the process. While the fire may no longer be a threat, waterlogging, mold and dry rot are very real risks. At Allied Restoration Company, we are very much aware of this and can provide quick and efficient services to prevent more damage.

Fires are unexpected, but you can respond quickly. Smoke permeates your home or office, but its residue can be removed, and its damage reversed. We can help. We are certified as Fire & Smoke Restoration Technicians with IICRC, and we are ready to respond quickly and efficiently.

Since fire hoses and fire sprinklers can deluge your home with massive amounts of water, we can also provide water remediation services to prevent any future problems from occurring. We have the experience, tools, and plan to get you back on track. To learn more or to schedule a visit, please call us at 415-529-5637.
