Do You Need Help Assessing Minor Fire Damage in Your Pensacola Home?
SERVPRO Offers Helpful Ways to Look at Fire Damage Remediation
A fire that flares up in your Pensacola home, fortunately, is brought under control swiftly. After the shock of the blaze and the relief that it was short-lived, putting the whole affair behind is desirable. The question many homeowners have is whether what seems like slight damage needs special attention. There are several reasons to bring in fire mitigation experts even if the aftermath seems insignificant.
The minor fire damage done to your Pensacola home after a grease fire in the kitchen might seem to be confined and cleanup manageable. Before you try to tackle the task yourself or have a general cleaning service handle the mess it is prudent to have one of our experienced fire project managers take a look at the scene. Our team is well-qualified to assess the apparent damage and look for secondary issues and the inadvertent spread of soot, smoke, and other fire residues into additionals spaces in the house.
Any fire event requires a means of suppression. Typically that involves chemical extinguishers, water, or both. The damage possible if the water is not removed and the area dried out correctly can be more severe than the fire itself. SERVPRO crews evaluate the extent of the water saturation and residual moisture, including tracing any migration of the water from the fire site to adjoining rooms and levels inside your home. We plan and complete water removal and dry out all affected structural components and contents first. This ensures secondary damage like mold growth or progressive building material deterioration does not occur.
Many homes have interconnected heating and cooling ductwork. If the HVAC system was in operation or the vents were open during the fire smoke and soot easily moves from the fire site to other rooms in the house. The IICRC training SERVPRO technicians complete anticipates this possibility. We investigate the potential spread of the fire residues and take steps to include that dispersal in our fire restoration plan. Our team is also experts in HVAC ductwork cleaning, deodorization, and sealing if necessary.
