Apartment Fire in Riverside, Damage from Water Sprinklers

What to do about wet insulation after a fire

This three level apartment building in Riverside caught fire due to a microwave.  The water from the fire sprinklers and fire fighters affected the bottom level garage.  

Why choose SERVPRO?  One sign that SERVPRO of West Riverside City will look for is any wet insulation. During the fire cleanup, we will check the insulation to see if it feels wet to the touch or if any water seeps out from underneath the walls where the insulation sits. The water used to put out the fire will moisten the insulation, but that water can drip out of the insulation and cause more serious damage to the structural elements nearby. Before pictures shows the insulation being removed.  The after picture shows after demo is completed.
