SERVPRO Rapidly Removes Smoke and Soot Residue to Save Your Belongings

The condition of your home and the choices you make after a fire occurs can make a severe impact on any costs associated with your recovery. You need to begin your restoration as soon as possible to prevent permanent damage caused by a mixture of water, smoke, and soot residues.  

A professional restoration technician understands that a quick response helps control fire damage occurring on your Cumming area property. The longer you take to make the call, the likelier you are to experience additional damages. Do yourself a favor and locate an IICRC certified remediation company in your area, before you need any help.
 
SERVPRO’s IICRC certified restorers have the training and experience necessary to test materials and apply the proper restoration techniques to return items caught in the fire to a usable condition. The results may not always be perfect, and some items might not make it, that does not mean that you cannot come out on top.
 
Within minutes of firefighters extinguishing your fire, acid residues begin staining plastics with a yellow hue, cause small appliances near the source of the fire to become discolored, and permanently stain highly porous materials such as marble. If you wait hours, plumbing fixtures begin to stain; uncoated metals tarnish, countertops yellow, finishes on appliances and furniture further away begin to discolor as well.
 
If for some reason it takes days or even weeks to contact a company like SERVPRO, these acidic residues can cause severe damage to your walls, corrosion and rusting of metal, along with damaging the finish on wood furniture, vinyl flooring, upholstery, and fabric items permanently. Restoration costs escalate feverishly at this point, causing glass, crystal, china, and even silver to corrode and etch.
 
You need to give SERVPRO fire damage restoration technicians an opportunity to clean residues created by smoke, soot, and ash as soon as possible. Even the few hours it takes for them to respond can make it difficult to recover some items, but they increase your chances considerably.
