How a Small Waynesboro House Fire Can Cause Major Problems

2/12/2019 (Permalink)

Even though a fire is contained, the damage spreads throughout the house.

Don't Wait for Minor Fire Damage in Waynesboro to Become Major

Professional damage mitigation and restoration companies should handle even small amounts of fire damage in Waynesboro homes. Even if the damages seem superficial at first, there are usually some long-term effects that may go unnoticed at first but cause major headaches later. Some of these problems can grow worse with time and develop from a small problem that can be dealt with quickly with the aid of a company like the SERVPRO Franchise System into a much more significant project taking multiple times the expenses and time to restore fully.

Smoke Damages

Almost all cases of fire damage in Waynesboro and other local communities involve smoke damage that needs professional mitigation. Smoke odors can be pervasive, working their way into the walls, floors, and structural components of your home. To deal with these problems, we employ specialized masking and odor neutralizing agents that specifically target the odor-producing molecules in most types of smoke. We deploy these agents through powerful thermal fogging machines that mimic the spread of smoke throughout your home. By the time we finish the process, we leave your home with a completely neutral, empty smell free of any sign of the fire.

Additional Complications

Every case of fire damage is different, and there are too many possible problems to list out in one article. If water was used to extinguish the blaze, we might have to contend with water damages and the possibility of mold growth. In some cases, smoke and ash may spread through the home's air conditioning and ventilation systems, requiring a thorough cleaning of them and other affected rooms. SERVPRO Franchise professionals are fully certified to handle almost any possible complication that may result from a fire, keeping all aspects of the restoration process under one company to eliminate the costs and confusion that can result from employing multiple contractors at once.

SERVPRO of Augusta provides 24/7 help for fire damages to homes across the region. Call us at (706) 868-5441 to find out how we can help.
