Somerville MA Fire and Smoke Damage Restoration
When a fire ravages a home, the homeowner has a long road ahead getting the home repaired. Fires can cause damage to everything in your home. You lose personal property including furniture, appliances and family heirlooms, the damage to your home and the thought of having to repair the damage to your home are all daunting. Anyone who has suffered through a fire in their home knows how devastating it can be. Not only does a person have to deal with the loss of their personal property, but the emotional trauma that gets compounded trying to get the repairs done. Disaster Pros of Somerville, Massachusetts can help take some of the stress of repairing your home off your shoulders.
There is obvious damage that a fire can cause and there is not so obvious damage. The obvious damage a fire causes is what you can see; burnt wood, broken glass. Some of the not so obvious damage can be damage to the wiring or plumbing and structural issues. Anyone who has suffered through a fire in their home knows that the fire company causes water damage with their hoses, soaking everything in your house. When you are finally able to re-enter your home, you will typically see soot on nearly everything; your furniture, countertops, floors, clothes. Sometimes the water and soot causes irreparable harm. Other times, while it may look like some of your possessions are destroyed beyond repair, they actually can be cleaned using a special process that will keep you from having to replace the items.
Fire damage and smoke damage are not necessarily the same thing. Fire damage will typically refer to the totality of the problems after a fire as well as things that have physical damage from the actual flames. Smoke damage is merely a part of that total damage and refers to when something has not been affected by the fire itself, but due to the massive amounts of smoke that comes with the fire. Soot travels in the smoke and the soot will settle on everything it can. When your counter top and walls are covered with soot, it’s easy to think that with some good cleaning products and a little elbow grease you could simply clean away that soot. Well, that may certainly be possible. However, it is also likely that later on, after all the repairs are done and you are back in your home, there will be times when you can smell that smoke that was all over your home from the fire.
