Our Experts Can Help With Smoke Damage From Your Lompoc Chimney
Many older buildings in our service area still have working chimneys and fireplaces. Tar and creosote may have built up on the inside of the chimney after years of use. Occasionally the tar and creosote catch on fire, causing a chimney fire, which can have devastating consequences if not dealt with quickly. The fire department has lots of experience putting these fires out, however in the process sometimes cause damage to the home.
SERVPRO has been in business in Lompoc, providing fire damage restoration for over two decades. We have dealt with almost every situation that can be imagined. Our team's experience and training provide our customers with rapid recovery and restoration while mitigating the overall damage.
Damage from Chimney Fires
At the very least, firefighters have tramped through your home with their gear tracking in dirt and water. However, there has been a fire in your chimney, which usually means smoke damage throughout the house. Hopefully, they were able to douse the fire before the fire spread from the chimney into your home or sparks ignited your roof and caused even more damage. There may also be fire retardant chemicals around your fireplace and on your roof.
Restoration vs. Replace
The objective at SERVPRO is always to restore your home vs. replace furniture, personal items, and flooring. This approach reduces the total losses of the fire claim with your insurance company. Quick action by our team with air movers can remove the majority of smoke residue from the home before it has a chance to settle and adhere to soft and hard surfaces.
The restoration team identifies the type of surface and the type of smoke residue in your home. Factors such as temperature, agitation levels, chemicals involved, and time form part of the decision regarding how to clean each item and remove smoke residue.
Fast action can significantly reduce the damage from smoke residue in your home. We aim to return your home to its original condition, “Like it never even happened.”
