Fire and Smoke Damage can be easily be detected, sometimes before you enter a room. The average person can detect a lot of damage and may think to automatically spring into action and start cleaning, but that is the worst idea. There are some damages that we look for when we enter a home affected by a fire for the first time.

One possible damaged area could be in the structure of the home. The home could look as if it is stable after a fire, but it is something to seriously consider checking because the structural integrity of your home could be weaker than you think. The damage may affect the stability of the framing and having a professional carefully examine and check on the structure can save you thousands of dollars down the road.

Depending on the age and the type of tiles used in your home, you could also have broken asbestos tiles that could cause issues in your home. These tiles if broken can respiratory and lung issues if you inhale the particles that are airborne. The tiles if not disturbed are fine on their own but damaged asbestos tiles requires professional assistance and trained remediators to remove the asbestos safely and properly.

If your home has been impacted by fire damage and you need a team of professionals to do the job properly and safely, call your local SERVPRO experts at (586) 296-3331.
