Post-Fire Safety Precautions In Brandon – What Do I Need To Know?
Why Safety is the First Concern SERVPRO Deals with When It Comes to Fire Restoration and Cleanup in Brandon
If a fire should strike your home in Brandon, you may not even be able to think clearly. Understanding what can happen and knowing what to do to make sure your family is safe is crucial.
My Home Looks OK – Can I Still Enter?
Many times, fires get contained quickly, and the damage seems minimal. Your first thought may be to go inside the home. Your natural instinct would be to see what has been damaged and if the house is livable. The reality is fire damage can be unseen. You can see what the fire and smoke have done to the items in your home. What you can’t see is things like carbon monoxide or structural damage. A fire damage restoration company in Brandon will ensure your home is safe before you enter.
Dealing with the Invisible
Carbon monoxide is a problem even after extinguishing the fire. This silent killer is not something you want to mess around with. Structural components may be compromised, but it will look just fine to you. Our professional crews know what to look for to ensure the safety of the structure. You do not want to put your family in danger should the building collapse. Other things that can be a concern are:
- Smoke and soot particles can cause health effects
- Hot spots
- Flooding from fire hoses
- Chemicals from the sprays the firemen use to put out the fire
