Firefighters typically use large amounts of water as well as foam fire suppressants to extinguish a residential fire. The chemicals in that foam and the water used to put out a fire can get absorbed by a home’s drywall and building materials. These materials may then soften and crack or crumble. Interior drywall, wood framework, carpeting, and carpet padding can also absorb the water used by firefighters.
If your home has suffered through a fire, call 24/7 Water Damage for proper cleanup and restoration. Our technicians
will extract all traces of water and fire suppression foam, as well as residual ash that has settled onto walls and in carpeting. We will also thoroughly scrub away all smoke and soot stains, and even remove the odors that often linger after a fire, so your home is clean and sanitized and smells fresh and new.
