Why Apartment Fires Need Professional Fire Damage Cleanup

apartment building on fireA building fire is a dangerous and frightening experience. No one is ever expecting a fire, so the actions that come during and after the event are crucial. A fire at your apartment complex is even more unnerving than other residential fires as there are more people and more homes that can quickly be affected. If you do experience a fire in your apartment building, after making sure your residents are okay, it’s time to assess the situation and make a plan.

Cleaning up after a fire can be overwhelming, but thankfully you don’t need to do it alone. Here’s reasons why you shouldn’t try to clean up after a fire yourself, but instead hire a local Montana professional.

Visible Damage and Invisible Danger

After a fire, the visible damage is clear. But many people don’t know all of the invisible problems that are present after a fire. The extreme heat from a fire can bring the room temperature up to anywhere from 100 – 600 degrees Fahrenheit. This causes damage to walls and floors beyond just where the flames were burning.

In addition to damage caused by the intense heat and flames, firefighters will spray thousands of gallons of water at extremely high pressure to stop the fire from spreading and eventually exhaust it. There is usually a lot of structural damage, which is why you should not enter an apartment without permission from the fire department.

Flames and water from a fire cause visible damage to your building. The smoke from the burning flames and smoldering debris bring a new set of dangers into your environment. This is especially concerning for tenants of an apartment building because even though the fire may not have touched a particular unit, smoke from the fire could have traveled through the air ducts and released dangerous chemicals into other areas.

According to WebMD, “The products being burned, the temperature of the fire, and the amount of oxygen available to the fire all make a difference in the type of smoke produced.” Burning paint, furniture, and fabrics release chemicals into the air which adds another layer to what needs to be cleaned after a fire.

"Best service in town! I had water leaking through my basement ceiling from the overflow drain in my upstairs bathtub. They showed up immediately after I called, they were super professional and helped me find the leak and even told me how I can fix it myself. I was so impressed how well the turned my problem around."
