Can Your Fire Damaged Belongings Be Saved

6/3/2020 (Permalink)

Fires can be scary and emotionally tough on a  home or business owner. While a reputable emergency restoration company and your insurance company handles a majority of the paper work and details, property owners face a much tougher task. Adjusting to damage and the potential loss of belongings can be both heart breaking and emotional. There is always a light at the end of the tunnel! Depending on the fire, location, and the affected material, there is a chance of salvaging many items damaged by a fire.

Knowing the details of what caused the fire and how certain items burn can determine there ability to be restored. Every fire behaves and burns differently, potentially causing different damage. The behavior often depends on the fuel, the weather, oxygen and the environment that its burning in.

Other than completely scorching or burning materials, fire creates soot and odor. Again, depending on the material, soot and odor can seep into fabric, cracks, crevices, and porous surfaces. The material and extent of damage will determine the potential for cleaning and the cleaning process to be used.

A professional fire restoration company like SERVPRO of Famingdale/Massapequa has had many years of experience in fire damage. We can help you determine what items can be cleaned and salvaged. We can also help you inventory your non salvageable items for your insurance claim.
