Our Specialists Discuss The Dangers Of Inadequate Fire Cleanup And Recovery In Your Falmouth Home
Risks Of Inadequate Fire Restoration For Falmouth Homes
As much as our professionals work to provide Falmouth property owners with all of the facts to help restore fire loss effects after a disaster, these same homeowners must also learn about the risks and dangers of inadequate fire cleanup and recovery. We strive to equip residents in our area with the practices and skills to begin addressing the mitigation their property requires after an emergency, knowing that we are close by to help should that be necessary.
For the multitude of effects that make up the comprehensive fire damage that Falmouth homes could experience, we have SERVPRO professionals that are well-trained and experienced in these fields. We have education and endorsements from the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) in Fire & Smoke Restoration (FSRT) and Odor Control (OCT.) We cannot expect our potential customers also to have the same accreditations, and because of this, many leave their properties at substantial risk with inadequate restoration solutions.
One of the immediate risks of inadequate damage assessment and recovery for homes is the threat of structural failure. Often homeowners do not have the discovery devices to inspect all potentially damaged areas of the house thoroughly, and as such, specific materials and inaccessible areas get overlooked. With prolonged stress on these compromised regions, it can be a literal matter of time before collapse occurs.
Another pressing concern that our SERVPRO professionals would stress to DIY enthusiasts is airborne particulates and air quality threats. Often our technicians can address these concerns with filtering devices like hydroxyl generators and ozone machines, and these same pieces of equipment should get used through cleaning, demolition, and reconstruction efforts overseen by the homeowner as well.
The push for DIY restoration can help to get projects completed on your schedule and within your own set budgetary confinements, but it does not come without risks and threats as well. If this restoration becomes too much to handle or you need the professional inspection and assessment of our qualified SERVPRO of Upper Cape Cod and The Islands technicians, you can reach us anytime by calling (508) 888-5985.
