Fire damage has several adverse effects on a residence; the most obvious is structural damage. Another danger of a fire is damage to water pipes. Heat can melt metal and plastic pipes or destroy the seals, creating leaks.

Leaks can damage your property if you do not detect them quickly. SERVPRO knows the dangers to look out for when performing fire damage restoration in Morgan Hill homes. We can inspect your home thoroughly and look out for the following issues:

  • Ash particles
  • Smoke damage
  • Structural problems
  • Water damage

Ash Particles

Ash is a solid substance that is physically visible following a fire. Ash particles do not spread all over a house because of their density. It is vital to avoid exposure to ash particles. Our team can clean up ash safely. 

Smoke Damage

Smoke residues can seep into walls and other parts of your home. They contain solid particles that mainly consist of carbon. Soot is light in mass and oily. Therefore, it can travel around a house relatively quickly. Our technicians know how to identify smoke residues and the right solutions for treating the issue. SERVPRO offers extensive smoke damage cleanup services using advanced industry equipment. We can use vacuum cleaners to remove dry particles loosely attached to surfaces. We usually vacuum dry smoke residues from affected surfaces before using wet cleaning products. 

Structural Problems

A fire can affect strong materials like concrete. One of the issues we look out for when it comes to structural damage is cracks that form on surfaces because of concrete enlarging from heat. 

Water Damage 

Fire hoses and sprinkler systems might cause excess water to pool in your home, leading to flooding, and repairing or replacing items after water damage is often necessary. Our SERVPRO technicians can remove the water using portal pumps and dry affected surfaces using air movers and dehumidifiers. 

If a fire has affected your house, SERVPRO of Morgan Hill / Gilroy is ready to assist you in bringing things back to normal. Our teams have expertise in dealing with fire recovery tactics. Call us at (408) 500-0657.
