While small fires are scary, most of us feel relieved because we know how easy it is for fires to rage out of control and consume a house. The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) found that a fire can move from a spark to full destruction in under five minutes. Our Douglas & Otter Tail Counties are just as relieved as you are when a fire spares you, your family, and your property.
The United States Fire Administration (USFA) urges homeowners to look carefully around the home to be sure that there are no remaining embers or sparks, and to be mindful of the extensive damage that smoke, soot, or water can create major damage.
If firefighters suppressed the flames, then you can be comfortable that there is no more risk from fire, but the smoke, soot, and water remain.
Firefighters may have cut holes in the roof or broken windows to allow the smoke to escape and slow the fire’s growth. They may also have broken into the walls to ensure that no embers remain.
Usually, however, smoke and soot are still present in the house:
- Behind and on walls, on the ceiling, between the roof and the ceiling
- In the air ducts and HVAC system
- On other surfaces
Smoke and soot are jaw-droppingly corrosive; they can weaken structural beams and scar metal. They are also greasy, which is not only unpleasant, but attracts dust, pet dander, and other grime. You have probably noticed that smoke is a tenacious odor; after a residential fire, the existing odors are heightened and added to the smoke and soot that circulate through your property.
When you call our Douglas & Otter Tail Counties office at 320-219-6505, you are calling experienced, highly skilled professionals who want only one thing: to make the damage “Like it never even happened." at the minimum possible disruption to your life.
We’re in business for you.
