Smoke & Soot Is Very Invasive So Leave The Job To SERVPRO

4/4/2022 (Permalink)

When a fire happens in your home or business, lives are suddenly turned around.  Recovery can be a mentally and physically draining process.  So, who do you contact and where do you begin?

Smoke and soot is very invasive and can penetrate various cavities within your home, causing hidden damage and odor. Hot smoke migrates to cooler areas and upper levels of a structure. Smoke can also flow around plumbing systems, seeping through the holes used by pipes to go from floor to floor.

Soot removal inside the home should take place as soon as possible after a fire. Leaving it untreated, soot and smoke can immediately begin to rust, discolor, and stain your walls, floors, textiles, porous surfaces, and metal objects. The oils and acid in the soot will stick to surfaces and begin to erode materials quickly. 

Since each smoke and fire damage situation is a little different, each one requires a unique solution tailored for the specific conditions.  SERVPRO of Oak Lawn has the equipment, expertise, and experience to restore your fire and smoke damaged home and contents.   We will also treat your family with empathy and respect and your property with care.

Give the responsibility of restoration and repair to professionals who will do it right. Call SERVPRO of Oak Lawn today (708) 239-1444 to assist you with getting your home put back together.
