A lightning strike started a fire in this house, creating damage to the roof.
When a fire is being put out, enough water is soaking the house to now create further issues of water damage. This is what we call a fire/water damage. Insulation and ceilings start to collapse as the fire has weakened the structure and the water creates further strain on the structure.
Our crews extract water from the house to begin drying out salvageable materials while disposing of unsalvageable materials. Crews will also place tarps on weakened and missing spots of the roof and board up any windows that may be missing in order to protect against further damage to the structure.
The detailed process of restoring a house after a fire/water damage is just one more reason why SERVPRO is the top-ranked restoration company on the Franchise 500.
