SERVPRO of Edison Helped Restore This House After a Fire

7/23/2019 (Permalink)

Just a small crack in the chimney mortar caused unimaginable damage.

Fire is an unpredictable disaster that can cause long-lasting damage and destroy a home if not remediated properly.Even the smallest of fires can be a life altering experience for owners and occupants of a home. We recently were called in to help a local family remediate and recover from a fire damage in their home. Having put out the fire in their fireplace, the family went to bed, not anticipating that an unknown crack in their chimney would have such a devastating effect on their home. A hot ember became trapped in the crack, causing a fire to start in the chimney. Fortunately, the family smelled the smoke in the night, called in the fire department and everyone was safely evacuated. The fire was limited to the family room, but the smoke spread throughout the house, causing damage to the contents in the kitchen, living room, laundry room, bedroom and garage. Many restoration companies reached out to provide service, but they chose to work with SERVPRO because we were the company that made them feel most comfortable and assured that their home would be returned to its original condition. We quickly began work to remediate their property. We brought in a dry cleaning specialist to remove and clean their content, and also removed the content that was damaged beyond repair. We then cleaned the home to get rid of the smoke damage. This is just one story of how we made a disaster “Like it never even happened!”
