One minute you can be preparing your family’s favorite meal and the next the unthinkable happens and your kitchen is engulfed in flames. All it takes is a moment of inattention or the inadvertent bump of a pot holding hot oil, and you and your family can find yourselves on the outside looking in as the fire department battles a fire in your home. Recovering from the effects of a kitchen fire are hard to do without professional help, making a call to SERVPRO for consultation, restoration, and repairs a wise choice. The damage done by smoke and fire can be extensive even if the blaze was confined to one area of your home, but our professionals know the steps to take to get you back into your home fast.
When faced with Rexburg fire damage, rely on our certified technicians to inspect all areas and systems of your home and then to develop a comprehensive plan to clean and deodorize interior areas while also arranging for repair or replacement of fixtures, furnishings, and structures damaged by heat, smoke or flames. We are trained to evaluate the safety of the building and HVAC systems post-fire, ensuring that appropriate measures have been taken to preserve structural integrity and air quality.
If your home uses duct work for heating, air conditioning, and ventilation, it is critical that all mechanicals and components be checked for heat or smoke damage. These areas are typically hidden from casual viewing yet have the potential to spread smoke and fire damage residue throughout the building even after the fire is out, and obvious damage and soiling have been repaired or cleaned. SERVPRO technicians will work with other HVAC experts to clean, repair and restore your heating, cooling and airflow systems after a fire.
Informed decisions will be made to restore or replace different elements of your systems, including sealing areas that cannot be cleaned effectively, blocking any continued movement of post-fire debris or smells throughout your home. Regardless of the source of smoke and fire damage, heating and cooling systems can transport dangerous substances to every corner of your house, requiring the skills of our team to contain the airborne hazards.
