Fire & Water - Cleanup & Restoration

Fire and smoke damage can be catastrophic

Heat melting plastics

The soot and smoke damage is the obvious part; and the odor is of course noticeable even from outside a heavily damaged structure. Water damage from the fire department is not nearly as noticeable but can be just as devastating. but it is heat damage that requires a trained eye, and a highly experienced assessor to address.  There isn't much in the way of mitigation when it comes to heat damage; once it's done it's done! It's restore vs replace from start to finish.   Food and medications are chemically altered. Makeup is generally ruined as well. As you can see in the photo plastics are re-shaped, and even dense substrates can be stretched or even compressed.  Heat damage is yet another reason to consult with SERVPRO(r) of Hyde Park/ Central Austin.   Check out our Before and After Photos
