Fire is the reason we go to great lengths to make sure that everything is turned off before we hit the sack or leave for an extended trip. We’ve all sat up late to make sure all the embers in the fireplace fade away, and we’ve lectured our kids on the dangers of playing with matches. And for good reason. It’s called fire, it is every homeowner’s nightmare, and fully capable of reducing your home or business to burned out rubble in short order.
A fire can completely destroy your home, along with valuable furniture, clothing, possessions, heirlooms, antiques….not much is fireproof enough to resist damage, and what is left behind can be severe, requiring specialized treatment for proper repair and restoration. If the fire didn’t damage a given area, the chances are very good that smoke and soot did.

There are a number of active threats at work in fire damage situations. Smoldering embers create toxic fumes that are dangerous if inhaled, and leftover water and foam can cause the accelerated propagation of mold. Mold shows up within 72 hours of a fire and be extremely difficult to get rid of and remediate. Damaged electrical units come with the threat of electrical shock, and leaking gas mixed with smoldering ash or open flame can cause subsequent ignition.
