The Importance of Fire Safety In Your Home
Fire damage can be caused in many ways throughout your home. However, forgetting to lock your lighters or matches away from small and curious children makes a fire significantly more likely. Of course, these actions are never maliciously done, but children are children; sometimes, they get into things and cause trouble. By the time you noticed a burning smell coming from your living room, your child was already trying to get your attention about what they had unknowingly done. The floor rug had sustained quite a bit of fire damage, as well as the floor directly below it. Fibers of the rug had adhered to the floor as soot, and scorch marks stained the wooden floorboards as well.
While this fire was relatively small in nature, and was put out swiftly, it is still important to seek out professional remediation services for the fire damage in your Westville living room. The scorch marks on your floor may be hard to remedy on your own, as the very particular temperature the fire burned the rug at must be addressed with a specific remedy. Professionals can tell precisely what solution to take, and they can do it swiftly, allowing you to live in your house in its pre-fire state.
SERVPRO knows how to deal with the fire damage inside of your home. Our IICRC-certified technicians are excellently trained and always make sure to travel to your home as soon as possible after your initial call for assistance. Upon arriving, SERVPRO can jump right into work, removing the floor rug for you and then addressing the soot and scorch marks on the floor.
Our SERVPRO techs can use a lubricative cleaning solution to clean the soot away, designed for the type of debris that was left behind by the fire in your home. The solution gently lifts the dirt away from your flooring, allowing it to be wiped away with a cloth. This process may take a few repeated tries until all of the soot is mopped up. Once the soot is gone for good, SERVPRO can leave your house "Like it never even happened."
Should a small child accidentally cause fire damage inside of your home, never hesitate. Phone SERVPRO of La Porte County by calling (219) 879-1883 with your phone. Our technicians are always ready to travel to your home swiftly.
