When You have Fire Damage in Groveland
Call SERVPRO to Restore Your Groveland Home Damaged by Fire
Fire can happen in any home and be caused by many different things. Malfunctioning appliances are one of the leading causes of house fires in the United States. Elements can overheat, cords that have frayed can spark and ignite flammable materials nearby, and plugs that are only partially connected to outlets can all start fires that spread quickly in a home.
Groveland homes that have fire damage should be restored as soon as possible. Along with fire damage, any water used to extinguish the fire can create problems of its own. Even small amounts of water from a small fire can become problematic. SERVPRO can look to see how much damage exists in your home in a short amount of time. When we look in a home to determine the level of fire damage, we also take into consideration that other types of damage are also highly likely.
Fire damage often affects homes severely, even if the surface seems to be only slightly damaged. Fire damage includes scorching, which is very visible, and also weakening of internal structures from the high heat produced by the fire. While a wall in your home may seem fine because the fire never touched it, the beams inside could be damaged. Interior support beams that never caught fire but instead smoldered are an underlying reason that fires often re-ignite long after the firefighters have left the scene.
Structural components in your home may be out of sight, but they should be given the attention they deserve. They hold your house together, and without them, your walls would soon collapse, your floors would sag and cave in, and your roof would allow rain, snow, and pesky animals to enter at will. When we locate such damage, we can replace the affected beams and other supports so that your home remains safe.
When fire damage covers a much larger area, we can restore these areas, also. No job is too small, nor too large for us to complete. Call us, SERVPRO of Minnetonka at (952) 473-4837, when your home has had a fire of any size.
