Specific Fire Damage Effects Could Have Lingering Impacts on Norwich Homes

One of the reasons that fire damage must be combatted with urgency is its threat to homes and businesses. While acute damage is often the most severe and pressing of the concerns, long-term issues could result when the restoration is not conducted properly or to the fullest extent. Multiple potential problems could result.

Combustion Deterioration

Fire restoration in Norwich homes must resolve a spreading fire's impact on the structural materials exposed. Building materials are easily destroyed by spreading fires, but this damage is not always as visible and apparent as you might think. Careful inspections for structural integrity must often be done to avoid later issues.

Smoke Malodors

Smoke damage is another lingering concern for the household as well. Burning of specific materials can produce severe and offensive malodors that are difficult to remove. SERVPRO professionals take time to ensure that the appropriate deodorization practices occur so that the smoke smells of a former fire do not become long-term, intermittent struggles for the homeowner.

Water and Mold Damages

If a fire is improperly managed, it is likely that the methods used to extinguish the blaze were not fully restored, either. Lingering moisture and damp pockets can deteriorate exposed building materials and encourage the growth of mold colonies.
