How Fire Restoration Curtails Escalation of Damages in Coral Springs Homes

Kitchen After Fire We aim to restore your property as quickly as possible, “Like it never even happened.”

SERVPRO’s Highly Trained Technicians Help Coral Spring Homeowners Limit Damage

Fire is highly destructive and takes only a few minutes to damage most items and materials. If the fire at your Coral Springs home burns for hours, the likelihood of salvaging anything is minimal. Even when a fire is put out before it consumes your Coral Springs property entirely, damages can still escalate later on, leading to high restoration costs or disposal of more materials.

Before taking any steps towards fire restoration at your Coral Springs home, it is essential to establish any factors that might escalate the damage beyond acceptable levels. That is why our SERVPRO technicians start restoration by evaluating the entire property. Evaluation can be simple such as wiping a cleaning sponge on surfaces to check for residue deposits or using a tool like a char gauge to check whether materials are structurally sound.

Some of The Common Factors Leading to Escalation of Fire Damage Include:

  • Weather elements penetrating the structure
  • Moisture left in the building after fire fighting
  • Fire residues reacting with materials

After fire incidents, your house might have openings such as shattered windows or roof cave-ins that allow rainwater and sunlight. Any contents or materials left undamaged by the fire are vulnerable to such exposure since indoor-use materials cannot withstand the weather elements. Even when the roof and walls are not compromised, the soot left in the structure is equally destructive. 

Some of the Actions That Can Curtail Such Escalation Include

  • Quick response
  • Structure protection
  • Stripping off unsalvageable materials

A timely response is the most crucial element in limiting the destruction after a fire incident. It is possible to set up structural protections such as roof tarps to keep weather elements out and pre-clean to remove soot residues from vulnerable areas such as chrome or stone surfaces. SERVPRO has a response standard referred to as 1-4-8, which means that we call the customer with an hour of notification about the loss and send a team to the site within four hours. In 8 working hours, we provide a full scope of the restoration work needed.
