Fire Damage can Happen when Forbing Residents use Candles During Power Outages
Rely on SERVPRO when a fire damages your home
Power outages happen during the spring months' thundershowers, and Forbing residents typically resort to using alternative ways to light their homes. Candles might play a role during a romantic dinner, but in an emergency, they pose a much higher risk than a flashlight or other temporary light source.
Candle use can cause a home in the Forbing area to suffer fire damage in a concentrated area. Setting a candle too close to a wall can force its heat to travel upward rapidly, catching any flammable items on fire. Drapes, paintings, wall art, and other furnishings can then spread the fire as burning pieces drop to the floor.
SERVPRO technicians with IICRC certificates in Carpet Repair and Reinstallation (RRT) can help save carpeting from the possible destruction caused by both the fire itself and the water used to put it out. Clearing walls and other surfaces of soot and oily smoke deposits often reveals that many materials do not suffer as much as the homeowners might have previously thought.
We use specially designed cleaning agents that pull dirty, greasy residues away from the different surfaces covered in soot. Some materials may require additional cleaning, while others may look and feel clean but continue to give off smoke-related odors. We have different methods that effectively eradicate odors caused by even the most challenging materials.
Many times, we find that the worst odors come from hidden nooks and crannies near the fire's location and not the suspected items. In these situations, we apply neutralizing deodorizing agents that bond with the smoke particles and chemically change them. After this takes place, they can no longer cause problem smells for you and your family.
After we replace damaged items and materials with new ones, your home once again should look "Like it never even happened." Damaged areas, greasy soot, and smoky odors no longer create bad memories or health and safety risks for your family members.
SERVPRO of South Shreveport has the technicians to help restore your family home to how you expect it to look and feel. Call us at (318) 865-4655 so we can perform the work needed.
