A fire incident is one of the most destructive mishaps that can affect your Laconia home. Fire incidents vary greatly depending on the source, intensity, and the duration of the combustion process. Therefore, you can expect a wide range of damages whenever such an incident affects your property. In most cases, you need help from a professional like SERVPRO to clean and rebuild your home, addressing all types of damages.
Mountain of Debris
Piles of debris are a common outcome of fire damage incidents in affected Laconia homes. As the flames consume different materials, the combustion process is rarely complete, so the fire only damages some materials partially. Apart from the flames, firefighting agents such as water also soak into materials causing irreparable damages. Ceiling and wall panel remnants are likely to produce a significant percentage of the debris. Our SERVPRO teams remove ruined materials still attached to frames before embarking on a thorough cleanup process.
You probably pay little attention to how the power reaches a wall outlet or the air coming out of a vent. When fires are intense enough, they reach the cavities in walls and ceilings where utility lines such as plumbing, power cables, and ducts pass, consuming or damaging them. Apart from the failure to function, some utility lines might also pose dangers. For example, damages power lines can cause electric shocks. Our SERVPRO technicians turn off main supply lines and remove all the spoiled lines.
As fires burn, smoke movements are almost indiscriminate since they follow convection currents and even closed doors or other similar barriers do not stop the smoke movement. It is therefore common to get soot deposits almost everywhere in the house including on wall surfaces, closets and many other places. Soot bonds with surfaces, so removal requires a combination of both wet and dry cleaning methods. Soot also alters materials through corrosion or staining, so it is essential to respond fast to avoid permanent damage.
