After a fire occurs, water damage might not be top of mind, but it probably should be. Sprinklers and fire hoses are tailored to put out the fire quickly. This is important in order to protect your home or business, but it can also cause an entirely separate type of damage. Both water and fire damage need specialized knowledge and equipment during the restoration process. Tackling water and fire restoration at the same time is no easy task. That’s why it’s important to call the experts at ServiceMaster Restoration by Bailey as soon as possible. In the meantime, use the tips below to help your recovery process run smoothly.
Moisture and standing water of any amount can take a toll on your property. Wood floors and cabinets can become distorted, carpets can breed mold and electronics can become irreparable. In addition, your home’s electrical system can be compromised. The longer water sits on your belongings, the more damage will occur. This damage quickly grows into mold which is not only visually unappealing but also can be harmful to your health.
