How American Restoration Water and Fire Can Help

The recent forest fires around Ruidoso, nestled in the Sierra Blanca mountains of New Mexico, has resulted in the loss of more than 1,500 buildings and impacted many more. The aftermath of a widespread forest fire disaster and the resulting flash floods and water damage from summer rains is often overwhelming, leaving property owners unsure of where to begin with the recovery process. This is where American Restoration Water and Fire steps in, offering comprehensive restoration services to help residents and business owners in Ruidoso, Alto and the Ruidoso Downs region recover and rebuild. Call us now to get started at 505-206-5277.

The Impact of Smoke, Fire and Water Damage

Fire damage is immediately visible, with charred structures and burnt belongings. However, the consequences of a fire extend far beyond what is visible. Smoke damage is insidious, infiltrating every nook and cranny of a property. It can cause:

  • Structural Damage: Beyond the obvious charring, fire can weaken the structural integrity of buildings, making them unsafe.
  • Health Hazards: Smoke and soot contain toxic chemicals that can pose serious health risks if not properly cleaned.
  • Lingering Odors: The smell of smoke can permeate furniture, clothing, and walls, making it difficult to live or work in the affected space.
  • Water Damage: Damage from our monsoon rains in the burn scars can also lead to water damage and mold growth. If your home or business has had any water infiltration, call us immediately. Mold growth can start in 24-48 hours, even in our dry climate.
  • Asbestos Testing: We strongly recommend an inspection and testing for asbestos in homes or properties built prior to the 1980s so that workers cleaning up do not inhale asbestos or dispose of it improperly.
