However, learning how to handle a fire's aftermath can mitigate the economic impact and emotional stress. Utilize the information and advice found below from SERVPRO to ensure that you can bounce back after a fire strikes your residential property:

Fires: Acknowledging The Physical Damage. When your home has sustained fire damage, the extent of the damage will be dependent upon several factors. A small, incidental flash fire by quickly be extinguished leaving minor repairs. With luck, little or no smoke damage occurred. A robust house fire can generate interior temperatures that can exceed 1,200 degrees, and this heat can produce more destruction than the actual flames. Additionally, smoke and soot, from the fire will snake its way through your possessions and living space. The result is unwanted odors and an oily residue that stains porous materials and is challenging to remove.
