Dangers of DIY Fire Damage Assessments of Your Oak Cliff Home

After a disaster in your 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 understand the effects of a disaster on your property better, 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.

One of the concerns about the DIY assessment of fire damage to your Oak Cliff property is the possibility of structural failure and weaknesses. With widespread fire effects, materials like wood flooring and supports can quickly burn to the point of structural compromise, and not all of these damages might get readily seen to untrained individuals. 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.  Tools like our hydroxyl generators with HEPA filters can help to remove potential contaminants, particulates, and even noxious odors from the environment while restoration work gets underway. 

It might be tempting to rush into your home after a fire has gotten extinguished to determine for yourself how bad the situation might be. To keep yourself and your family safe, you should trust in the rapid response and experience of our SERVPRO of Southwest Dallas fire restoration technicians. We can show up fast with the equipment and experience to make a difference. Give us a call anytime at (214) 463-5880.
