Separating The Temporary And The Long-Lasting In Metairie Fire Damage

Most homes in Metairie with fire damage show immediately apparent signs of it - from tar-coated walls and ceilings to warped materials and deep-seated odors, the signs and symptoms of a recent fire should be apparent to anyone walking through the home. However, not all of these effects are permanent, and some may go away with some light cleanup and a little bit of time.

Of course, not all fire-related problems can be solved so quickly and may require the help of a professional mitigation and restoration company like SERVPRO to eliminate. Here is a brief overview of what should and should not be troubling you for years to come after a fire.

Damage That Sticks Around
Many of the lasting effects of fire damage to Metairie homes only become apparent once temporary considerations have been pushed aside. Smoke odors can remain in a home for many years after a fire but may be impossible to identify while the area is still dirty and coated in ash. Other issues have much to do with ash, soot, and other materials being given the time and opportunity to settle in and create more long-lasting consequences for the home. SERVPRO's fast response times and mitigation strategies help to control how much of this deep, costly damage takes root after a fire.

Problems That Go Away
Some of the most worrisome signs of damage when you first look at the aftermath of a fire are often among the easiest to clean up. Heavy coats of ash can create an ugly picture in your home but are often swept away with ease. Discolored walls and other surfaces are also easily fixed with a thorough cleaning and a fresh coat of paint. Keep in mind, however, that precision care must be exercised during the cleanup of these materials to avoid the creation of caustic or otherwise damaging substances in the home.
