Small fires can cause damage to your home, even though they are more localized and not as destructive as a large house fire is. A flare up in one area of your home should still have the damage repaired as quickly as possible. Scorched carpeting, burnt wooden flooring, soot-covered walls, bubbled wallpapers, and so much more can be easily repaired professionally with great results.
When you’ve had a small fire in your Palm Beach home or discovered fire damage that was unreported by your former tenant, you’ll want to get it repaired as soon as possible. At Express Emergency, no fire damage repair work is too large or complicated, nor ever too small. We repair all types of homes and businesses, including those made of brick. Fire damage can include soot and scorching of fireplace fronts, which can be removed, revitalizing your living room or den.
Cooking fires are very common and can lead to damaged countertops, cabinets, and islands. Always keep a foam type fire extinguisher handy for such an event. We can clean and repair these fast so that your culinary skills don’t have to take a backseat to restaurant fare for long.
Other areas in your home where you might experience fire damage the most are in the bathroom. Hair dryers, curling irons, crimpers, and straighteners all have been known to cause fires. These appliances pull a great deal of current and can overheat or cause arcing. They don’t have to be carelessly dropped into a tub of water to cause grave concerns. Because of the higher humidity, and at times, direct exposure to water, outlets must remain dry. Many older homes in Palm Beach should have all outlets in bathrooms and kitchens replaced with GFCI, ground fault circuit interrupters, to prevent shorts, shocks, and possible electrocution. Because of the similarities in the interior of a bathroom to a kitchen, with the countertops and cabinetry, repairs may be comparable to those needed in kitchens damaged by fire, although the soot left behind is not as oily in a bathroom. However, personal care products can create their own messes when exposed to the high heat that is generated by a fire.
Drying up any standing water post-fire, wiping down smoke and soot covered surfaces, and removing odors from smoke all are part of a comprehensive service provided by Express Emergency.
