Why Even Small Building Fires Demand Professional Fire Damage Restoration in East Dubuque, IL

April 6th, 2017 · No Comments

For homeowners and businesses, flooding and fire are significant concerns. Establishing fire safety precautions is particularly important to lowering the risk of a structure fire in your building. Flood damage can be completely reversed more often than not, but frequently, fire damage leaves behind unsalvageable belongings and building materials. Even small building fires can leave behind damage that demands professional restoration action. ServiceMaster Cleaning Services provides emergency comprehensive fire damage restoration in East Dubuque, IL, for fires of all sizes.

A small fire may not seem like a big deal, especially if the majority of the visible damage to your building is smoke and soot residue. However, the reality is that this damage alone can cause significant long-term building damage and affect the health of those exposed. The best way to truly fix the damage caused by even a small fire is with the help of restoration professionals. 

Smoke residue is one of the biggest concerns when it comes to fire damage of any size. Even small kitchen fires can leave behind significant smoke residue that will continue causing damage for years to come without professional restorative action. Smoke and soot is left behind when a fire does not have a complete combustion rate. The particles in soot and smoke are highly acidic and they will quickly stain, etch, burn, and deteriorate the materials they touch. From cloth to metal, almost all materials will be affected by soot and smoke residue.

Odors are another result of even the smallest fire. Your average soot and smoke leave their own odors, but when most materials burn, there can be a wide range of unsavory smells. Woods, plastics, cloths, and foods burning in small fires can permeate your building with scents that are acrid, toxic, and long-lasting. Our professional fire damage restoration crews are equipped to remove these odors along with the materials that continue to cause the offending scents.

Soot, smoke, and other odor-causing particles left behind after a fire of any size also pose health risks if they’re allowed to remain in your building. Professional fire damage restoration in East Dubuque, IL, with ServiceMaster Cleaning Services is an important step to take even if the fire that affected your building was a small kitchen fire.
