Photos showing how hot the nails got during a fire loss

SERVPRO of Southwest Las Vegas has access to SERVPRO’s 50 years of fire damage trainings and materials. SERVPRO has been a leader in the Las Vegas area for over 18 years mainly because we do have access to these trainings which allow us to handle any type of fire damage. One of the many things which are confusing in a fire damage is what to do with the drywall. A trick that SERVPRO uses, and as shown in the photo, is looking out for nails. In the photo you can see where the nails are located in the drywall. SERVPRO knows and understands when this happens it means the drywall needs to be removed in that area. If the drywall does not show nails then SERVPRO will try to clean and save the wall if possible. If after the cleaning the walls smells heavily of smoke then SERVPRO will request removal. But to be safe and insure the job is done right it is always best to contact SERVPRO and allow the professionals to handle the situation
