What Happens When There's Smoke, But No Fire In The Fireplace?

Especially during the brief winter days in San Antonio, people tend to "light-up" their fireplaces for not only some added warmth, but just the pure ambiance. However, since these particular home fixtures are used so rarely, homeowners may not realize when there is a "hidden" issue lurking in their fireplaces.

And such was the case for one family, who realized that they still had smoke filling their home – even though they had carefully extinguished the fire they had burning earlier that evening. Knowing the flue HAD been open, they began to investigate and discovered a fire on the INTERIOR of their fireplace. Fortunately, they called the trained techs from SERVPRO of Northwest San Antonio to remediate both the smoke and fire damage...who, just as our slogan says, made it "Like it never even happened."
