    4 Reasons to Hire Professional Cleaners After a Fire in Your Home

    Once the initial emergency of a house fire subsides, the reality of needing to clean up the damage sets in. Cleaning up after a fire can be emotional and leave you wondering where to start. If you find yourself in the unexpected position of needing cleaning or repairs after a fire, consider these four reasons to hire professional cleaners.

    Mold and water damage

    The travesty of a house fire is that not only does fire damage your home, but it is very probable that you will also have extensive water damage. ServiceMaster of Spartanburg understands that acting quickly can help restore your property and reduce the likelihood of mold growth. Our professionals remove water quickly and thoroughly. We make sure everything is dry with our special dehumidifying equipment.

    It's dangerous!

    Cleaning up after a fire isn't as simple as hauling everything into a dumpster. Any remaining soot is technically referred to as "Products of Incomplete Combustion" and can be hazardous to breathe in. Letting the professionals clean your home and remove soot and smoke residue properly ensures that you limit your exposure to harmful elements.

    Eliminate odors

    Your home may emit a few strange odors after a fire. Professional cleaning can help eliminate odors caused by:

    • Mold from sitting water
    • Smoke and soot particles
    • Melted materials that emitted odors when exposed to open flames

    Professional knowledge

    The professionals at ServiceMaster of Spartanburg thoroughly inspect your home and then create a custom plan of action tailored to your unique situation. During the initial inspection, our team of professionals can save you time and money by sharing which items can be restored and which items must be replaced.

    Ease the emotional burden of cleaning and get back on your feet quicker with professional cleaning services. If you or a family member need assistance after experiencing a home disaster, contact us to schedule an appointment.
