What Happens After a Fire
Often after a fire, there is a noticeable odor and structure and contents appearance. The sights and smells can be overwhelming and the feeling something needs to be done can be overwhelming. This is where a thoughtful reaction can save time and money. SERVPRO of Fayetteville is trained to respond to and restore your home or business to a preloss condition.

The number one priority is safety. Certain hazards may be present. Individuals entering the structure and see what has happened should be aware of the damages and how this may have affected the structure. Overhead objects (ceiling, fixtures) may be compromised as well as flooring stability. Air quality may have been affected by the fire and resulting methods to extinguish the fire. Respiratory protection may be required in the initial stages of cleaning and deodorization.
