Fire. It’s scary, lethal, and causes incredible damage to homes and businesses. From the time we are young, we’re taught the dangers of fire and what to avoid. As adults in our homes, we install smoke detectors and fire extinguishers. At our businesses, we invest in sprinkler systems and have escape routes planned for employees. Even with all this knowledge and preparedness, fires still ravage homes and businesses in Boulder, CO, and comprehensive fire damage restoration is needed as a result.
When called to a building fire, the firefighters responding to the scene are trained to do everything in their power to save the building and douse the flames. One of the techniques they use is creating ventilation holes. This is a tactic used to draft smoke out of the building and create clear exits for smoke and heat so the firefighters can enter the building safely.
These ventilation holes will serve not only to let the firefighters into the building but also help as an escape hatch. In multi-story buildings, these ventilation holes will move the smoke vertically out of the building. These holes allow more precise access to stop the fire. However, once the fire is out, it allows entry for pests, vandals, and the elements.
ServiceMaster DSI has trained technicians to be on the scene quickly to provide board up services for ventilation holes as well as servicing the Boulder, CO, area with complete fire damage restoration services. Water damage is also present after a fire, and we can assist with water removal and drying. If any items need to be removed from the home for cleaning we provide pack out services as well.
