Fire Damage Cleanup After a Lightning Strike to Your Ham Lake Home

Lightning Strikes, Fire & Smoke Damage in Lake Ham, and SERVPRO for Restoration and Clean Up

The Nature of Combustion Directs the Fire Cleanup and Restoration

Lightning damage is not often thought about but is more common in Ham Lake than you might think. Lightning strikes to your home can damage certain things like electronics. However, they can also spark a fire and cause fire damage. The damage in a case like this can be devastating.
Your Ham Lake home cannot always be protected from fire damage, and when a lightning strike causes a fire, it can be a very frightening experience. At SERVPRO, we recognize that these events are daunting and you may not know where to turn next. Our staff are professionally trained to be able to handle fire damage of any kind, so you can feel at peace when you put your trust in us.
Fire damage restoration includes getting soot residues removed from different materials and surfaces in your home. Not all soot is the same, and some are not easy to clean, while other soot is very difficult to remove. Luckily, we understand smoke and combustion.
Combustion, an exothermic chemical reaction, happens when a material is burning. If the wood is burning, it is combusting. Combustion usually occurs when a solid turns into a gas because of heat. As combustion occurs, the material burning is breaking down and combining with oxygen while heat is given off.
Fire needs three components to work – fuel, heat, and oxygen. Fires form smoke when these elements are not in the balance, so incomplete combustion makes soot and smoke residues. These residues are corrosive and need to be removed as soon as possible after a fire occurs, or more damage continues to happen to your home and possessions. This also produces that different culprit to vanquish from your property--odor.
At SERVPRO, we know that we need to work quickly to clean your home because of this. Anything that can be restored, we clean and sanitize. If something cannot be salvaged, we take it out of your home so it can be replaced.
SERVPRO of Coon Rapids/Central Anoka County is ready anytime you need us to clean up the fire damage in your home. If you reside in the areas of Oak Park, Hamm Lake, or Anoka, give us a call at (763) 712-9712 so we can restore your home as quickly as possible.
