Fireworks Create Accidental Fire Damage to Westwood Area Homes

6/15/2018 (Permalink)

Fireworks are a fun way to celebrate holidays. Sometimes they can start fires and cause damage. Contact SERVPRO to remediate.

SERVPRO Responds Quickly to Fire Damage Issues Regardless of the Cause

Many residents in Westwood enjoy setting off fireworks during the summer months. Sometimes things go wrong, however, and cause injuries to people or damage to property. When areas outside your residence sustain damage in this manner, pests such as rodents and insects can come inside your dwelling all too easily.
 
If your Westwood house sustains fire damage in this manner, the holes burned into siding can seem minor. However, pests do not require large openings for them to set up their little nests inside your walls. SERVPRO prepares our technicians according to IICRC standards to mitigate such situations adequately. This keeps future problems with mice, termites, ants, and similar pests from ever becoming horrible nuisances for you and your family.
 
Problems with infestations are only one situation that can result from damaged areas in your home's exterior walls. Rainwater can also substantially damage insulation, wiring, and interior walls. If burnt out areas occur around second story levels, water can damage ceilings, also. SERVPRO technicians can remove affected areas of siding and help you locate matching sections.
 
Burned areas of your lawn can also become eyesores that your neighbors see, and we can also help remove any problems in the area. Discarded papers, sticks, and other debris from fireworks can quickly get sucked up into lawnmowers and become dangerous projectiles.
 
In homes where fire damage causes more extensive damage than just a few minor holes, SERVPRO employees are also able to remove the damaged materials so replacement work can happen more easily. Often, though, we find that cleaning materials first reveals minimal damage that does not require this extra cost. Saving our customers money through restoration by cleaning instead of replacement of materials means making everything "Like it never even happened" can cost considerably less than expected.
 
SERVPRO of Beverly Hills / Westwood wants you and your family to enjoy a safe and fun summer. When fire damage from any source causes your home damage, call us at (310) 390-7540 so we can help you protect your home.
