Coming Home After a Fire!
There are so many things to consider when returning home after a fire. Some things to watch out for are structural damage, mold, and poor roof drainage. Not only will there be damage caused by heat and soot, most people are unaware that water damage comes hand in hand with fire damage. If water has collected in your walls or ceilings, it can cause the floor to buckle and/or weaken the structure. A lot of water is used to put out a house fire, if that water is left pooled on the roof, it can make its way into the ceiling, walls and crawl space of the home. If not taken care of in a timely fashion, this can also lead to mold.
