When Fire burns through your home
If you’re of a certain age—let’s say, old enough to remember keeping change in your car for pay phones—then you probably remember a time when there were simply more things for which people had to wait. It wasn’t uncommon to have to sit and wait on a person or a service, with nothing to do but look around or maybe balance your checkbook.
In the Internet era, we don’t expect to wait for almost anything—instant gratification is the name of the game. And waiting is out. We don’t even wait for things we want anymore, so why should we wait for things we desperately need?
For example, when a pipe bursts or a fire ravages your kitchen, not only is it helpful to have the 24-hour service of SERVPRO available; it’s crucial.
After a fire. Some effects of fire are easily seen, and the destruction of hungry flames is quickly recognizable. But a sneaky after-effect of fire damage is the presence of soot, which is sticky, incredibly small and dense, and which begins to stain ceilings and walls immediately, and attaches itself to carpets and fabrics right away.
In only a few hours, soot can leave irreparable marks on your home and become embedded in your carpets and furniture beyond repair. This plus the smoke smell that works its way into every surface combine to create a great need for immediate remediation.
After water damage. The countdown starts right away, and in addition to the immediate damage done by water, you have 48 hours at most to get your home dried out and dehumidified before mold takes hold. Your respiratory health, and indeed the integrity of your home’s surfaces and walls, may hinge on fast recovery from water damage.
Storms, fires and natural disasters can all disrupt your life, and they can happen at any time of day, leaving you with no time to wait. Mold doesn’t twiddle its thumbs until the office opens at 9 a.m., and neither should you.
