Should I Worry about Minor Fire Damage in My Niagara Falls Home?
Here's What No One Tells You About Water Damage in Niagara Falls
Some fires do not spread and engulf large areas of a home in Niagara Falls. Some fires never spread out and only involve a small area. However, the interior of walls can hide some damage from view and keep you from realizing how much damage exists.
How Can I Tell If Hidden Fire Damage Exists?
Most homeowners do not own the equipment needed to perform inspections in their residence in Niagara Falls to locate fire damage. SERVPRO technicians carry equipment that lets them see inside hidden areas like a wall's interior. One of our services is performing a no-cost inspection, during which we can rule out or confirm hidden damage.
What Damage Might Exist Inside Walls or Other Places After a Fire?
Even if the exterior surface seems only cosmetically damaged (bubbled or flaked paint), we might find brittle wooden beams, electrical wiring with melted sections, or even waterlogged areas from putting out a minor fire. Each of these can occur by themselves or other types of damage.
If an Inspection Determines That Fire Damage Exists, What Can We Do?
SERVPRO can schedule a time for the work to begin and give you a timeline of how long we expect such work to take. We understand that an accurate explanation of the entire process, even though it is a small project, can help minimize the disruption your family experiences.
What Will SERVPRO Do About Hidden Fire Damage?
Depending on the size of the fire damage we find, our building crew might need to remove some of the structural components in the affected area. We can make repairs more easily this way. We always explain to our customers exactly what we intend to do, as well as any options that might reduce the costs of the work.
