Fire Damage to Structural Elements and Contents Can Vary in Shreveport Properties.

Regardless of the type of fire damage that occurs in your home, destructive results must be overcome. As leading fire restoration professionals in Shreveport, we can quickly identify the type of surface fire damage that has occurred and the ideal solutions for restoring and cleaning these impacted areas.

Soot Damage and Staining

Among the more recognizable instances of fire damage in Shreveport, homes are the presence of soot and smoke residues. Aerosolized smoke solids find their way onto the vertical and horizontal surfaces to create a challenging residue for restorers to remove. These are among the most direct surface damages faced by building materials and contents. Restoration options for these include:

  • Surface cleaning
  • Abrasive media blasting
  • Demolition

Blistering and Charring

After situations like kitchen fires, materials and fixtures like the cabinets can be damaged by the spreading fire within the room. Blistering can occur even when direct fire damage has not happened, as these instances often feature high heat circumstances. When these damages occur, it is often necessary to refinish or replace the cabinets.

Water Damage

Fire suppression can also ultimately damage exposed surfaces and contents throughout the property. A large volume of water is often required to extinguish active blazes, leaving pooling and saturated porous materials throughout the house. Overcoming these damages requires fast actions to dry and clean the impacted elements.

Destroyed Materials

There are also multiple situations in which the impacted materials and contents through the damaged areas of your home after a fire are too greatly compromised to preserve. An item-by-item inspection shows where some building materials and personal belongings should be discarded rather than salvaged.

Several types of surface damage are possible after a fire disaster occurs in your home. Our SERVPRO of South Shreveport team is a trusted name to help make it “Like it never even happened.” Call today at (318) 865-4655.
