Fire Damage Restoration in Aspen Colorado
Fire can strike without warning and take a devastating toll on a home or business.
Because it usually happens suddenly, there is no way to be prepared for the damage caused by a fire. At times like that, you need a name you can trust and in the Aspen, Colorado area SERVPRO is ready to handle all of your fire damage restoration needs in a timely and thorough manner.
Thousands of people come to the Aspen area every year to enjoy the natural splendor. From hiking to camping to skiing, there’s something for everyone here.
With destinations like the Sunlight Mountain Resort there are plenty of ways to take advantage of everything the Aspen area has to offer.
Unfortunately, that close access to nature can also leave homes and businesses exposed to the threat of wildfire and that’s why all local residents need to have restoration services they can count on.
What Kind of Damage Can Fires Cause?
When most people think of fire damage, they automatically picture burned and broken surfaces, scorched wood and melted plastics and metals resulting from the extreme heat caused by flames.
While that’s certainly a big part of the equation, there is much more to fire damage, all of which needs to be considered when performing restoration.
In addition to flames, smoke and soot can cause a tremendous amount of damage as well.
Smoke can permeate a number of surfaces, leaving behind noxious and often dangerous odors.
Depending on the specific type of surface, those odors can be deep seated, requiring a thorough cleaning process. In some cases items may be beyond restoring and will unfortunately have to be discarded.
At the same time, soot left behind after items burn can also produce a great deal of damage, coming to settle on any number of surfaces from wood and plastic to fabrics.
If it isn’t properly cleaned, soot can become a mess, it can become airborne in ducts and heating systems. Once it permeates the air, soot can end up on your walls, in your craws and cabinets, essentially almost everywhere in your home. It can leave a dirty, dingy look to your entire home.
Perhaps the greatest factor in fire related damage is actually water
The water used by firefighters in their efforts to put out the fire can cause more damage to homes, businesses and belongings than the fire itself and this damage will need to be carefully addressed in order to return your property to its previous condition.
How To Properly Address Fire Damage
Since it’s usually impossible to avoid fire damage, it becomes that much more important to know how to address the damage once it occurs.
In every case, whether it involves a home or a commercial property, speed is a primary concern
