How to Improve Your Fire Damaged House in Mission
Why SERVPRO Helps Resolve Fire Damage Incidents in Mission Safely
Incidents involving fire in Mission pose risks to anyone in the vicinity. Even after putting out the fire, some dangers remain. Such issues can be a risk to the house occupants or the people handling the restoration. A professional restoration company such as SERVPRO helps restore the property to its preloss state safely because we have IICRC certified Fire and Smoke Restoration Technicians in our team who prioritize vital tasks.
Cleaning the Air
One significant hazard leftover after fire damage incidents in Mission literary hangs in the air. Noxious fumes, aerosols, and other particles can remain suspended in the air over extended periods and, if inhaled in large quantities, can lead to respiratory issues. Our SERVPRO teams tackle this problem in different ways, including wearing PPE, Personal Protective Equipment such as respirators, and using air filtration devices to remove particles from the air. We can also use ventilation box fans, which move 3000 to 5000 cubic of air a minute to force the particulate filled air out of the structure, reducing the risk.
Checking Structural Integrity of Support Structures
The flames or embers of fire consume various materials in the affected structure, including frames, joist, or other structural supports. From casual observation, it is easy to dismiss such materials as only slightly charred, yet their structural integrity might be compromised, reducing their load-bearing capacity. Our SERVPRO technicians open up walls and ceilings to expose the underlying support structures. We use char depth gauges to find out if any of the frames are charred past their load-bearing capacity.
Different aspects of the fire have varying effects on various utilities in the house. While the flames consume most materials, heat can alter them indirectly. For example, the heat might melt the insulators on power cables causing short circuits when power is restored. Smoke, on the other hand, readily filters into air vents spreading debris all over the house. Our SERVPRO technicians remove all cables in areas directly affected by the fire. We also have specialized duct-cleaning equipment to ensure your air conditioner does not spread debris all over your property.
Safely restoring a fire-damaged home to its preloss state is a great achievement. Call SERVPRO of Kansas City Midtown at (816) 895-8890 to help. We have the resources you need to make it, "Like it never even happened."
