Fire Damage in an Atlanta Attic
An electrical short caused a spark that caused a fire in this Atlanta attic. The Before Photo depicts the torn foil reflective insulation material and the charred trusses. Since the burning reached a depth of less than 1/4", the structural strength was sufficient to support the roof and the below ceilings. We used an ice blasting method to scrape the smelly, black layer from the untreated lumber, and the result is pretty impressive. Check out the After Photo. This technique is waterless, so there is no fear of adding more factors to the fire damage cleanup like water drying or mold growth. The airborne odors were captured with a small air scrubber and ported to the exterior to help prevent degradation of the air quality in the living quarters of this home. Count on us to make it "Like it never even happened."
