Different Types of Fire Damage in Rocky Hill Have Distinctive Restoration Techniques
Fire and Smoke Sources Often Dictate the Manner of Restoration
Fires can have very different characteristics and may make the work SERVPRO does in repairing fire damage in Rocky Hill longer, shorter, or anything in between. Some fires, like electrical fires, may require specific safety protocols and cleanup techniques. Others may be problematic due to the size and spread of fires of that variety. Here are a few of the most common types of fires in modern American homes, and how we deal with them.
One of the most common ways to get fire damage in Rocky Hill is through an electrical fire. Electrical fires, as the name suggests, start from short-circuited or malfunctioning electronics. Large amounts of electrical energy become concentrated in one area or touch a flammable surface, and ignites. The source of these fires cannot be put out with water, and are often actually caused by water touching an exposed power line or delicate electronic item. When dealing with the results of these fires, SERVPRO technicians must take care to avoid using water-based cleanup techniques until the area has been sufficiently secured.
Grease fires most often start in the kitchen when food is left unwatched, or something goes wrong in the cooking process. While most grease fires can be quickly put out by a hopefully nearby fire extinguishers, they may still cause significant damage to the kitchen and cause smoke damage around the home. We take care to treat situations according to their size, efficiently conducting restorations without being overly intrusive in your home. Odor abatement from protein fires is of particular need for professional services like those offered by SERVPRO FST technicians.
Many fires start during powerful storms when lightning strikes the home, or another damage is caused by falling power lines, floodwaters, or wildfires. Fire damage of this variety tends to be significant and wide-spread across the home and may require a lengtheir restoration process. Also, floods and other types of water damage may add to your problems, requiring separate restoration procedures. SERVPRO is licensed to clean up all types of damage that may result from a storm and can then prepare the property for a rehab.
