3 Reasons Why Board Up Services Are Important After A Fire

SERVPRO offers board up services after fire damage in your home has caused glass windows to shatter.

When fire damage occurs in your North Atlanta Home or business, it can cause a variety of damaging costs. Did you know that house fires can produce heat up to 1400 degrees Fahrenheit? High temperatures, combined with a lack of oxygen to your home, will cause your property doors and windows to blow out. In addition to a lack of oxygen, fireballs will be shot around your property, causing damage to the interior of your home or business. 

SERVPRO of North Fulton Has been to the go-to fire damage restoration company for the Sandy Spring Fire Department. This strong relationship has been created because we are fast-acting and there when our local firefighters need a home or business boarded up.  

Having your property boarded up is beneficial for the following three reasons: 

  1. Preventing further damage from weather

Fire damage clean up is not something that can be completed in 24 hours. Most home fires have a combination of leftover debris and soot damage to the walls. Rather than offering same-day installation of windows and doors, we find it best to provide board up services while we wait for the damages to settle. When we board up a home or business after a fire, we are negating the potential damages caused by rain or other storms. Heavy rainfall can cause water damages to an unprotected building. As well, implementing wood planks to cover your property entrances will prevent debris from entering your property. 

  1. Reduce potential theft

Unfortunately, we have heard stories of people that target damaged buildings as a free pass to steal the belongings inside damaged properties. We do our best to help the property owners remove all of the undamaged belongings, but sometimes valuables are forced to be left inside due to safety precautions. When SERVPRO boards up your property after fire damage, we hope to secure the belongings of your property from thieves. 

  1. Keep out unwanted animals. 

Properly covering a building after a fire occurs will help prevent any four-legged creatures from making a new home. Before our professionals can replace your property to prior loss conditions, we must cover any entranceways where unwanted pests could enter.  

Having fire damage to your property can be extremely stressful, so we are here to help our North Atlanta residents every step of the way. As you can see, once we receive the initial call, we will send out a crew to board up any broken windows and doors to prevent bad weather, thieves, and pests from entering your property. 

If your home or business has recently suffered from a fire loss, we want to help you mitigate it. Our highly trained fire damage staff is available 24/7 365 days a year to help our North Atlanta residents with any size fire loss. Call us today at (770) 992-2777  to schedule an appointment.
