Why SERVPRO Seals Interior Areas of Houses with Fire Damage in Jacksonville

Cleaning up smoke deposits and charred and blackened materials like personal belongings and building materials can stir up dust and increase the amount of pollutants in the air. Before starting such projects in Jacksonville, our building department team, working under General Contractor License # CBC1256211, boards up exterior doors we do not plan on using, as well as windows with broken glass or other security risks. They also tarp over any openings in the roof that might let in rain.

Sometimes, however, the family decides to continue living in their house in Jacksonville during fire damage mitigation, and this is why SERVPRO technicians seal interior doors, as well. Instead of keeping vandals and he elements outside, these interior seals keep living areas clean and free of dust, while allowing us to use out equipment in an efficient manner. 

Unsecured windows provide us with a location where we can expel contaminated air from our machinery. Although our air scrubbers use HEPA filters, the amount of humidity from firefighting efforts can cause additional problems if damp air, no matter how clean, gets recycled back into your house.

Sealing areas off from the usable space keeps the customer's family from breathing in smoke particles, as well as experiencing any unwanted odors from the fire. While not all families can do this and must leave for a short stay elsewhere, we do everything we can to ensure that those who do remain in their home can do so without any unpleasant experiences. 

Not having to hold or redirect mail, change routes to work and school, and collect medicines, papers, and personal items for use elsewhere can help families recover and get things back to normal with much less stress. The costs involved also decrease whenever a customer can refrain from finding other lodging. SERVPRO wants to help families as much as possible after a disaster, so we always discuss the options and explain the benefits and drawbacks involved.

Continuing to live in the house after fire damage while we mitigate the damage and restore structures can become noisy. This is because of the machinery that we use. However, there are different ways we can get these machines to run with less noise. We might place a machine on an opposite wall, away from the section of the house your family occupies. Other machines make less noise if placed on top of a thick pad.

After fire causes damage to your home, call SERVPRO of Jacksonville South at (904) 762-8066. We are always available to our customers in Town enter, Baymeadows, and San Marco.
