Fire Damage to Home SERVPRO of Woodland Hills 818-882-4556

After a fire, our goal, at SERVPRO of Woodland Hills, is to restore and save as many of your belongings as possible. After a fire some of your belongings could be salvaged but there are some that should be disposed of after a fire. It is important to carefully consider what should be kept and what should be discarded. When certain materials are exposed to high temperatures, they release chemicals, including:


      2. Nonorganic Fibers

      3. Wiring

 You should dispose of anything you plan on putting in or onto your body. Items such as medicine, makeup and toiletries should always be replaced. This means you should get rid of most foods, items in plastic containers, and anything containing harmful chemicals.  When dealing with fire damage, it’s better to be safe than sorry. Hiring a professional fire remediation company like SERVPRO of Woodland Hills is always recommended when navigating these kinds of decisions.
