Dangers of DIY Fire Damage Assessments of Your Oak Cliff Home

After a disaster in your Dallas or Oak Cliff home, many owners want nothing more than to get back inside and determine the scope of the damage for themselves. While you might do this to better understand the effects of a disaster on your property, many others do it to begin to assess an expected cost to restore or repair damaging effects to the house. The best solution after a fire has occurred within your home is to reach out to our rapid response team to get a thorough and honest evaluation of the effects and damages.  We can walk you through the process and provide your insurance company with the details necessary to get you back to normal as quickly as possible.

One of the concerns about the DIY assessment of fire damage to your Oak Cliff property is the possibility of structural failure and weaknesses. Fire can affect materials like wood flooring and supports can quickly burn to the point of structural compromise, and these issues may not be recognized easily. Our highly-trained technicians have extensive knowledge of fire restoration and recovery so that we can offer effective solutions for our customers regardless of the severity of the incident.

With structure fires, many materials and products can come into contact with the spreading blaze. What results sometimes is a volatile combustion of materials and chemicals that could be hazardous to breathe. Our SERVPRO team that arrives on site does so with the full measure of our personal protective equipment designed to keep us safe even in potentially hazardous conditions.  In addition, tools like our hydroxyl generators and air scubbers with HEPA filters can help to remove potential contaminants, particulates, and odors from the environment while restoration work gets underway. 

In conclusion, while it might be tempting to rush into your home after a fire has been extinguished, please keep yourself and your family safe and trust the experience of our SERVPRO of Southwest Dallas fire restoration technicians.  Give us a call anytime at (214) 463-5880.
