Dealing with the Challenges of Fire Damage Mitigation in Coral Springs Homes

Fire damage can overwhelm you as you try to deal with insurance while taking care of your family. Thankfully, the fire damage restoration experts at SERVPRO can help. We have the training and high-tech equipment to overcome fire loss challenges. Depending on what caused the fire, the nature of the materials burned, and the extent of combustion, different residues and contaminants can be released throughout your home and absorbed into its porous contents.

The contaminant residues in your fire damaged Coral Springs home may include char, soot, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), and ash. A quick response is key to preventing additional damage to your property and restoring it to its original condition. There are challenges involved in restoring a fire-damaged home, but our technicians can deal with them effectively.

Smoke Odors  

The smoke produced during the fire can get into your infrastructure, plumbing, and walls. Smoke turns into soot that can cause discoloration of affected surfaces. Smoke can leave unpleasant odors. Our highly trained technicians can identify different smoke scents. We can use specific cleaning solutions to remove the smells and water-based odor counteractants to remove the odors. Our team can add the odor counteract to cleaning solutions to control smoke odors. Water-based deodorizers work at various pH extremes and temperatures to neutralize a majority of malodors, replacing them with a pleasant scent.

Water Damage

Firefighters may have pumped a lot of water to extinguish the fire on your property. Although the water helped save your residence, it could have damaged different strictures and contents in your house. Mold grows quickly and has the potential to cause an unhealthy environment. Our team can remove any standing water using pumps or wet/dry vacuum cleaners. We can also use air movers and dehumidifiers to dry your home completely.  

Choosing the Right Cleaning Products

Our intensive fire damage restoration training enables us to select the correct cleaning products for different surfaces, such as water-based or non-water-based cleaners (dry or petroleum-based). For instance, we avoid using water-based cleaners when washing plaster walls because they are insufficient. Similarly, when cleaning chrome fittings, glazed surfaces, and porcelain finishes, we avoid using abrasive cleaners because they can cause these surfaces to become dull. To determine the right cleaning products and processes, we identify the residues produced during the fire and then restore the affected surfaces properly. Pre-testing surfaces and fibers are crucial to successfully remove soiling without damaging the material.

Encapsulation of Scents

Some scorched surfaces of your home could be inaccessible. We know that odors can remain on such surfaces even after we have used other deodorization procedures. To deal with such odors, it is necessary to seal the surfaces. Our SERVPRO crew can seal them off using chemical sealers to encapsulate the odors.
