Seeing your home and precious possessions consumed by fire can be one of the most severe losses that you can experience. After such a devastating loss, reassurance comes from having clear guidance and support in salvaging as much as possible from fire and smoke damage. At ServiceMaster by Lewellen’s, our technicians are more than talented professionals; they’re caring people ready to get you back in your home as quickly as possible, while keeping you informed every step of the way. Here are a few things you may not know about house fires.

FIRE DAMAGE GOES BEYOND BURNING ITEMS
Ash and smoke can continue to cause damage and corrosion to materials if they are left behind. Odors from smoke will stay in a room or a home long after the fire and continue to cause problems if they are not removed. In a few minutes, walls and other surfaces can be discolored. In a few hours, finishes on kitchen appliances turn yellow. Smoke causes etching in glass after just a short time, and smoke will tarnish metal quickly.

NOT ALL FIRE DAMAGE IS THE SAME. OUR FIRE RESTORATION PROCESS IS THOROUGH AND PROVEN. IT INCLUDES:
Identifying the source to determine the type of fire that occurred Evaluating the areas that are wet as a result of firefighting that may need treatment Remediating water damage (if any) Evaluating sensitive materials that may be damaged as a result of smoke and soot particles A leaking roof Removing contents from the home, including: Collecting immediate items you may need for the next seven days such as clothing, prescriptions, toys, school books, business needs, etc Packing out the remaining contents for cleaning and storage Performing structural restoration, including: Removing any charred contents that may seal in smoke such as insulation and burned wood Evaluating carpets and floor coverings that may need to be removed Inspecting the framing of the house and subfloors for safety Treating affected surfaces for smoke odors and sealing to keep any leftover odors from leaking back into the house Cleaning, eliminating odors and deodorizing surfaces to pre-loss condition Returning items to the original location and helping to restore your normal life.

LIVING IN A HOUSE THAT HAD A FIRE MAY BE DANGEROUS
The residue left behind after a fire is a biohazard and can cause health problems if it is not taken care of correctly and thoroughly. You do not want to attempt to clean up your home on your own after a fire or you may cause more damage. Only experts with the right training and tools can assure the job is done properly. Did you know that smoke continues to destroy your home and its contents even after the fire is out? Smoke that has coated or penetrated surfaces continues to affect the chemical composition of fabrics, metals, walls, ceilings and even tiles. Count on us to handle every aspect of the smoke and soot removal as well as restore areas damaged by fire.
