If your home has suffered fire damage, SERVPRO has the certified restoration professionals that treat your home with care. We maintain a 24 hour a day operation to assist our neighbors put it all back together after a fire or any other disaster.
Most of the damage from a fire is due to smoke and soot residues. The cleaning and restoration costs quickly become expensive. To help keep costs at a minimum and return home owners to a safe, clean house, we follow a plan developed over decades of experience.
First, we perform a thorough inspection to determine how far smoke has traveled through the house. We do this by finding the source of the fire which also helps us define the thickness of the residues at different points in the home.
Finding the source enables us to identify the type of residue. Our technicians can make the identification by seeing what items burned in the fire. Once we know what materials make up the residue, we can determine the best cleaning method to remove it.
Next, we identify the material of the item covered in smoke residue. Certain cleaning compounds and tools are unsuitable on porous surfaces like plastic countertops or upholstery. Wire brushes that we use for cleaning fireplace bricks are unsuitable for wooden surfaces such as a dining room table and chairs.
Once we have collected this information, we start to remove residues from the personal and structural property. For dry residues, we use commercial vacuums to remove the larger amounts and then wipe down surfaces with either dry or wet cloth. We attempt to use water to finish the task before utilizing a chemical cleaner.
For wet or sticky residues, we start with a chemical cleaner and a brush to break up the residue. It makes removal easier and quicker. Technicians repeat this process until the surface is free of residue.
When we have cleaned everything, we dispose of all collected residue and other contaminants according to Federal and Florida state environmental regulations. After disposal, we perform a final inspection with the home owners and then turn the house back over to them.
