The aftermath of a fire in a home or business can cause serious health and structural damage. Once the firefighters leave, it may seem like there is no longer danger present… but that is far from true. Without a professional Omaha fire damage restoration team, a home or business cannot return to its previous state of cleanliness and safety.
Fire restoration principles are fairly simple, but experience is important when attempting to restore your Omaha home or business after fire damage. Ash and smoke, if left to an inexperienced team, will cause corrosion, etching and discoloration – as well as powerful odors. A professional Omaha fire damage restoration team, if contacted immediately after the damage occurs, will clean fire and smoke damage so these things do not become a concern.
Ash will discolor most surfaces. Anything made of plastic or close to the fire will start discoloring within minutes, and within several hours, fiberglass and finishes on appliances will begin to yellow. After a few days pass, the ash will cause walls to discolor permanently, along with clothing and upholstery. Metals may need to be replaced, carpet will permanently discolor and glass may be severely etched. It will also become apparent that the odors caused by the disaster may still be present. Because ash is acidic, the longer it takes to hire experts to attend to the damage, the more destruction it will cause.
