The Effects Of A Kitchen Fire In Your Montgomery Residence
The Effects Of A Kitchen Fire
Kitchen fires can happen in your Montgomery home from a variety of causes. While many of these incidents can get extinguished before they spread out in destructive ways throughout the house, there are still effects that must get addressed when the time comes to clean up the mess.
Many homeowners have not ever dealt with a house fire throughout their lives, and are often unclear as to the wide range of lingering effects present once the first responders and firefighters complete their job. Restoring the fire damages to your Montgomery home, even with a smaller-scale incident localized to your kitchen area can prove challenging for even experienced professionals at times.
Legitimate threats to your home exist following a fire in your kitchen. Smoke damages penetrate not only the air in the affected areas of your home, but also the walls, cabinets, and furniture in the kitchen as well. Our SERVPRO professionals utilize various methods of deodorization to remove this noxious odor, leaving no discernable scent behind.
Cabinets above and near the heart of the fire are susceptible to irreparable damages. Often these units get constructed with thin wood, making them easy targets for open flames. While our SERVPRO technicians do everything possible to restore the damages to these units, cabinets sometimes need to get removed and later replaced to complete the restoration process.
Soot is another threat to the kitchen area, as it is a widespread concern. This layer of film and debris cakes to surfaces throughout the room, and can even get into the ductwork of the central air system. Cleaning up this mess requires several approaches which depend on the severity of damage and the location of the soot itself.
A homeowner might be fortunate when it comes to the limited range of a quickly extinguished kitchen fire. Even with this being the case, lingering effects still make it difficult to live comfortably in the house following the incident.
