Fire Damage

The most expensive part of damage to a private home from fire is not normally from the flames themselves. Smoke alarms help ensure the arrival of local fire departments and even many homes today have suppression systems in place in key areas. It is unseen damage from smoke and soot that can wind up costing much more.

Home damage in Highland Gardens from fire is clearly visible and, usually removed quickly. Soot is also easy to see and removed or cleaned until it gets into your heating and air system. When that occurs, it can become much more expensive. SERVPRO knows that smoke and soot has to be discovered just like you would have an inspector examine a home before you would consider buying it.

Every closet, crawlspace, and room has to be checked. Ceilings have to be examined from an overhead viewpoint. Heating and air ducts must be inspected and (if needed) scrubbed before they are turned back on. Soot can be circulated into parts of your home that had no damage. Attic and crawlspaces must be inspected just like floors and walls. This is why a rapid response is so important. With the right set-up, even smoke and soot problems can be reduced and eliminated. We maintain a quick response team that is trained and equipped with everything you need to make your home livable again.

For over twenty years, SERVPRO of Montgomery has been restoring homes from fire, smoke and soot damage. This isn't merely a job for us. As a locally owned and operated company, these are our neighbors we help. Regardless if it is smoke or soot from a fire that needs to be dealt with or scheduling a free inspection to try and prevent future damage, call us today at (334) 273-0992.
