Limiting damage after a fire
Even if a fire in a home or business is contained to one floor, the damage from the fire may affect other floors of the building as well. Soot and smoke can travel throughout the structure leaving a trail of damage behind. If the damage is not handled properly, long-term effects can result, adding to an already stressful situation.
After contacting SERVPRO of Boone County, there are a couple of steps you can take to help avoid further damage to your property. First of all, keep movement throughout the building to a minimum. This will help avoid tracking the soot throughout other areas of the building. And secondly, place clean towels or linens on the carpeted traffic areas. Realizing that there will be some movement within the building during the restoration process, this will help prevent additional soiling.
The SERVPRO of Boone County fire technicians are highly trained and well-equipped to handle the cleanup and care of your home or office building and its contents following a fire incident.
