Fire brings devastation to your property and once it is extinguished the real trouble begins. Not many people know, but burnt furniture and walls are not the only damage the fire accident causes. After the fire we are left with rooms filled with toxic smoke and soot that covers almost every surface in the affected area. As if that wasn’t enough firefighters usually do some water damage to your property, but no one can blame them, they did their best to put the fire out.

What can a home or business owner do after such disaster happens? Well, the best solution is to call a professional restoration company that will help him deal with everything that comes after a fire disaster and restore his property to the pre-fire condition.

Fire damage is not to be taken lightly. A lot of people try to recover from these situations by themselves, but that is not recommended. There are a lot of potential hazards that can affect your health and safety in many ways and none of them are good. Here are some of the hazards that lurk in fire damaged properties.

• Toxic fumes
Toxic fumes are present in almost every property that was affected by the fire. Besides smoke that is cancerous, bad for your lungs and can instantly kill you, there are other fumes coming from lead-based paint if you had any on your property, ash and soot can also cause serious health conditions if inhaled, etc. This can all be avoided if you take proper precautions and carry protective gear. Luckily, Trec 24 Hour Flood Clean Up workers come with all necessary equipment to handle toxic areas with ease. Additionally, our workers are trained to spot and isolate any other potential hazard, so it won’t spread to other areas and properties.

• Structural hazard
As we all know fire burns walls, foundations and other important parts for structural integrity of one building. When we first arrive we cannot know how much damage fire caused to your home or business. This is why you must not go in there until our technicians arrive and evaluate if everything is structurally sound and safe to enter. If you don’t follow our advice there is always a risk of the walls collapsing on you or falling through floors. Don’t forget that wood is most affected by the fire and the vast majority of houses are built from this material.

• Electrical hazard
Lastly, electricity poses a huge hazard in fire damaged buildings. Not only does the majority of fires start from bad wiring, but it can also spark another fire if not properly handled. The first thing that the fire department does when they arrive at the scene is turn off the power on the whole property, but once the fire is extinguished, we need the power back on for our restoration machines. Any loose wire might spark another fire and that is why our technicians go in first and check for any of them hanging from the ceiling or sticking from the walls.

Once everything is hazard-free we can start our restoration process. Depending on how much damage your property has suffered it will take us anywhere between a few days and weeks. If you need a more precise time frame you can call us at this number (940) 239-3898 so we can evaluate what amount of damage we are talking about.
