Why Is Water Damage Common After A Fire?
Fire can cause massive damage, especially when the structure of the building is affected. The flames will ruin furniture, walls, and belongings. But what many people don’t realize is that that damage is only the first part.
When a fire breaks out in a Norwalk home or business, the first concern is the safety of people and animals inside. Once that is covered, saving the structure and preventing spread is the next important action. That is where the efforts of firefighters come into play. In order to stop the fire, they must use a massive amount of water. It can often take over 2,000 gallons of water to put out a structure fire in a home or business. This may go even higher when a commercial structure is affected on a large scale.
Using this much water will go a long way in saving the framework of the building, but the damage caused will need to be remediated along with the fire damage. That is where SERVPRO of Trumbull, Monroe & Northern Bridgeport comes in. We are well equipped to handle both categories of damage.
