Whether a fire happens in a residential home or a commercial building, water damage tends to be a factor, also. In a house fire, if it grows and lasts long enough, fire department usually comes and puts it out with powerful and damaging streams of water. The pressure from the fire hoses can do a lot of damage to the structure and if left wet, can lead to further water damage and organic growth. We suggest you call us (and your insurance company) immediately after you have secured everybody’s safety, and the fire department is gone. In the case of a commercial building having a fire, typically there are ceiling sprinklers that will put out the fire, or lessen the fire until fire department comes. Either way, there will be water everywhere. Again, call us out- because water moves quick, and the longer you wait to have us out, the more damage and costly remediation will be.
