A Small Fire Can Do A Lot Of Damage

There's no such thing as a small fire. Regardless of the size of the event, a fire in one room can damage belongings and surfaces throughout a home and cause odors that may last for years.

National fire statistics indicate that a residential fire occurs approximately every 90 seconds somewhere in the United States. However, when an Insured suffers a fire, only one fire matters. Your belongings are a treasure of life, and a reflection of hard work and achievements. Photographs, books, and other personal items have a value that cannot be put into words. SERVPRO of Fairfield Franchise Professionals have the ability to help restore your belongings.

Emergency Fire Damage Tips:

  • Limit movement to prevent further damage
  • Place clean towels or old linens on carpeted traffic areas to prevent more soiling.
  • Don't attempt to wash any walls or painted surfaces without first contacting SERVPRO.
  • Don't attempt to shampoo carpet or upholstered furniture without first consulting SERVPRO.
