Fire is Fast, but so is SERVPRO of Plainfield/Naperville South

You probably learned in school fire drills to line up and get out of the building quickly because fire moves too quickly for dawdlers to make sure their crayons are lined up. Teachers and parents taught you that people are more valuable than things. They were right!

Nonetheless, you might be surprised at how much damage even a small fire can do in a short time. Worse, the smoke damage will keep corroding wire, staining paint, and causing other problems until it is professionally removed.

Remediation of fire and smoke damage is tougher than it looks. You may think you’ve gotten rid of stains or odors only to find them back within hours. That’s why insurance companies require homeowners to hire companies that have certification in remediating fire- and smoke-related damage on a variety of household materials such as:

  • Textiles (window treatments, clothing, carpets, rugs, linens, upholstery)
  • Flooring (linoleum, LVT, stone, ceramic, hardwood, marble)
  • Other materials (leather, metal, certain plastics)
  • Appliances and electronics
  • Wiring
  • Roof
  • HVAC and air vents

Our SERVPRO of Plainfield/Naperville South teams are experienced at assessing damage and may surprise you with how much of the structure and how many belongings they can save.

Trivia Time!

This week’s Walk on the Mild Side delves into care and feeding of houseplants, or rather the lack of care and feeding of houseplants. Apparently one of the inmates at the Office of Information Hardly Anyone Remembers managed to kill off an air plant, so is now being tasked with finding a plant that’s (a) not made of plastic or paper and (b) hard to kill.

Easy-care houseplants:

  • Rubber plant (not made of rubber!)
  • Chinese evergreen (even in low light)
  • Norfolk Island pine (supposed to dry out between waterings!)
  • Dieffenbachia
  • Snake plant (another one where that is supposed to dry out between waterings – great for those who put plants to the side and forget about them)

It’s only plants that some of us ignore.
