Wildfires have the capacity to damage everything from forests and farmlands to businesses and residential neighborhoods. Although the fires themselves can be extremely dangerous and damaging, a large part of the structural damage caused by them is actually due to smoke and soot. When a wildfire strikes and damage occurs to your home, you can trust ServiceMaster Professional Restoration to help you navigate the situation and get your home or business back to normal.
Because of the hotter and drier nature of the weather during the summer months, wildfire threats increase during this time. Using the color-coded National Fire Danger Rating System, which has five stages ranging from green to red, is a great way to stay aware of the current threat level for your area. Wildfire smoke can have a direct and drastic impact on your home and the health of those inside. If your area is prone to wildfires, plan ahead and take the appropriate safety measures to protect yourself and your property.
Damage from the actual flames of a wildfire is obvious and easy to see, but many people don't realize that the smoke from the fire can be equally damaging to the structure and much harder to assess. The first sign of smoke damage in a home is the odor, which can seep into any porous material of the home such as drywall, wood, fabric, carpets, books, and more. Additionally, smoke damage can cause deep staining of the interior and exterior materials of the home.
As soon as you've been given the all-clear to reenter your home, you'll want to begin the restoration process.
