Fire Damages Denver Home Undergoing Remodeling
SERVPRO Technicians Clean Up So That Your Project Can Proceed As Scheduled
During a rehabbing project a homeowner may expect problems, but understandably expects the issues to be ones of budget overruns or construction material backorders. When Denver contractors work on a number of different projects at the same time, errors in operation or judgment happen. Some mistakes or accidents can lead to disasters like a fire during a renovation.
Your home remodeling project halted abruptly due to fire damage in Denver when conductive heat came in contact with some combustible insulation while construction crews were welding. Compounding the event was the malfunction of the fire extinguisher initially used to smother the flames. The damage is a combination of scorched building materials and soot and smoke that invaded the rest of your home. Our fire damage crew can help with both.
Although frightening, the actual blaze and its immediate effects are relatively straightforward to remediate. Burned insulation switched out, chemical extinguisher foam cleaned up, and charred studs sealed or replaced quickly turn back time in your soon-to-be-remodeled room, permitting those jobs to move onward. You need the SERVPRO touch in areas of your home not receiving remodeling services.
It may seem odd that fire damage is worse so far from the site of the blaze, but that is the nature of smoke and soot. While the insulation smoldered and the fire extinguisher sputtered, the rest of your home received an unexpected and unwanted coating of residue and persistent smoky odors. It floats through the air, perhaps helped by an operating HVAC system. The particles spread and are highly corrosive. Unless we attend to it, your furnishings, fixtures, and structures, no matter how far from the fire, begin to deteriorate. SERVPRO technicians know how to remove fire residues safely and efficiently.
The smoldering fire in this type of situation generates a sticky coating. Unlike dry ash and light soot, this oily coating may need abrasive tools and scrubbing with special cleaners or solvents. SERVPRO team members are familiar with the various types of sooty residues and match the appropriate cleaners to them. Our deodorization experts then work on eradicating the harsh smell of melted insulation that pervades your home. We have a range of options available, including thermal fogging and hydroxyl generators that safely neutralize odor bearing particles.
