We Put The Flames Of Worry Out In Cleburne After A Fire

4/2/2020 (Permalink)

A technician using one of our air scrubbers in the attic of this home SERVPRO powered this air scrubber with our generator to clean the air in this home after a fire disaster struck.

Attics Cans Be A Common Place For Fire Damage In Cleburne

Many attics inside houses in Cleburne can have electrical wires or heating vents running through them. If an electrical wire short or another mishap occurs, a fire could ignite inside your attic.

The flames coming from the blaze could start to consume your building materials such as your trusses, drywall, and insulation. The smoke created can also cause fire damage inside your Cleburne home. When the smoke starts accumulating in the attic, your drywall ceiling can get affected, and it can make its way into your living space. It is also possible that smoke can enter your heating and ventilation system and cause foul aromas to get circulated throughout your house.

Ensuring Safety Is Top Priority

Before beginning any fire damage restoration work, our SERVPRO team first assesses the situation to make sure that your structure is safe for all building occupants. Burnt building materials can create a dangerous environment, and we can inspect and mitigate the following safety hazards:

Fall Hazards: If drywall is hanging from your ceiling, we can safely remove it so that it cannot fall and injure someone.
Trip hazards: If burnt materials and other debris have already fallen onto your floors, we can remove the debris or clear out pathways for foot traffic.
Electrical Hazards: If the source was electrical-related or wiring was affected during the blaze, we can shut off the power and get a certified electrician to repair the problems.

Removal Of Charred Materials

During an attic fire, our SERVPRO technicians can start by removing any severely burnt debris, including insulation or drywall. If other materials such as your trusses or roofing materials get charred, we can conduct demolition procedures and dispose of these large, heavy items. Once the large chunks of debris are removed, we can then vacuum up the remaining dust with a high-efficiency particulate air or HEPA vacuum.

Attic fires can become disasters that are best handled by calling SERVPRO of Crowley & South Johnson County at (817) 297-8588. We are available 24/7 and we can restore your loss, "Like it never even happened."
