Is Fire Damage Cooking in Your West Coral Springs Kitchen?
Extra Problems After Fire Damage in Coral Springs Kitchen
Even a small size kitchen fire leaves several issues, including fire damage, water damage, foul odors, and there is the threat of mold growth. The cleanup needs to begin quickly, or soot has the potential to spread throughout the home.
Eliminating the chances of cross-contamination is one of the first actions SERVPRO technicians take against fire damage in Coral Springs homes. The containment may be simple barriers with thick plastic sheeting or negative air chambers, depending on the amount of damage and potential for foot traffic to spread soot.
Mold is a Threat After Fire Loss
SERVPRO technicians know that mold spores can germinate within 24 hours when ambient moisture levels are above 50% humidity, and temperatures average over 70F-degrees. They hold mold remediation certification #MRSR2994 and know the early warning signs of infestations. Proactive treatments involve complete water extraction and the rapid lowering of indoor air moisture levels through the use of air movers and dehumidifiers in tandem. Antimicrobial cleaning solutions work to inhibit mold as an issue.
Controlled Demolition is Often Necessary
As long as charred building materials and contents remain in the home, the danger of spreading soot remains. The cutting away and removal of burned items works to lower odors.
Readying the Property for Reconstruction
After the removal of the fire loss items from the house, the techs prep the home for reconstruction. Some painted walls have the potential for cleaning, however dependent on the heat of the fire, the possibility of deeply embedded soot in the paint remains. In those cases, the application of a sealant provides an odor-free surface that only requires repainting.
Inspection of Ductwork
If the HVAC system ran any time after the fire, there is a likelihood of soot within the ductwork. After the cleanup of fire loss in the home, they inspect and clean the ductwork as needed.
