Some Warning Signs of Sarasota Fire Damage That You Should Avoid
Competent Fire Damage Cleanup Crews Also Prevent Damage to Your Sarasota Property
A house fire in Sarasota does not merely cause problems directly related to the flames. Water used while extinguishing the flames soaks into walls and your belongings, including those that only suffer from a film of soot.
When SERVPRO sends a mitigation team to your home to perform fire damage cleanup in Sarasota, we do everything needed to make it “Like it never even happened.” Removing damaged items like sections of wooden trim, furniture, and personal belongings that burned only does a fraction of the work required to make your house a home again.
We also need to extract the water that can make your home susceptible to microbial damage. This extra water can also create weak spots in your property's frame where it might have previously seemed stable, even after the fire. We know that water moves from damp areas to dry areas, and we use this to force moisture out of the materials in your home. Warm air also holds more moisture than cooler air can, so we heat the air to increase the amount of water vapor it can hold. We use other methods to pull water out of your home, as well, ensuring it becomes dry again.
Another aspect of fire damage cleanup that we offer our customers is ridding your home of the odors you experience after a fire. Small fires can produce problems as widespread as more massive fires because smoke particles can remain airborne for quite a while before falling onto surfaces. The type of fire can also cause extreme odors that can prove highly distracting. High humidity during warmer days can strengthen smells, too.
Our IICRC-certified Odor Control Technician (OCT) can perform thermal fogging to effectively control these new odors. Using this method, we send neutralizing agents into the same locations that the smoke traveled during the fire. Once in contact with soot particles, a chemical bonding takes place and makes the odor-causing soot too heavy to become lifted into the air again.
