How Different Levels Of Fire Damage In Chicago Affect Restoration
Cases where fire consumes everything in a Chicago property, are rare, and there are numerous reasons for this since even a small fire has the potential to turn into a massive blaze. One reason is the reaction time and effort put in extinguishing the fire. Another reason is what fuels the fire once it starts. There are several other reasons so, in the end, each incident results in different types of damages. The different levels of damage might necessitate unique restorative action so involving a professional is a good idea.
Cases of fire damage in Chicago fall into three levels – minor, medium and major damage. At the minor level, most of the loss is from smoke residue. The deposits are also light to moderate in nature, so restoration mostly involves cleaning the affected surfaces. Our SERVPRO technicians can either use dry or wet cleaning techniques to get rid of the residues.
In medium level fire incidents, there is both smoke and heat damage on different surfaces and items, but it is moderate. Heat damage might affect cabinets, drywall, and other contents. Odors might also be more noticeable. Our SERVPRO team can help clean up and refinish surfaces. We clean contents at the job site too and carry out any necessary deodorization procedures eliminating traces of the fire “Like it never even happened.”
In fires categorized as major, heat damage is more severe especially in the areas close to the source. Such blazes leave some of parts of the structures such as framing charred, so part of the restoration process involves structural repairs. Smoke damage is also widespread reaching different sections of the property. Our SERVPRO team can help with the extensive cleanup and removal of debris from the structure. We also help board up the house or winterize it if the incident happens during the cold season. It is still possible to salvage some contents, but in most cases, they require extensive cleaning which we do offsite.
