Fire Damage How A Fire At Your Neighbor's Property Can Damage Your Sarasota Home Smoke and soot from a neighboring property can invade your home.

Cleaning Smoke Residue from a Nearby Sarasota Structure Fire

Housefires thankfully do not always occur to just your Sarasota home. However, with the likelihood for any home nearby to experience this disaster, your property could remain at risk for the effects of a massive structure fire. The smoke residue is one of the biggest hurdles to overcome when a nearby home catches fire, as the outside and parts of the interior of your home can become affected by the spreading smoke and soot particulates in the air.

The exterior and parts of the interior of your home are susceptible to smoke and soot fire damage in Sarasota when nearby properties battle this disaster. While the primary home experiences the greatest brunt of fire damages and effects including structural damages, your home might only get coated in a thick residue from wet smoke from the smoldering property. Removing this residue requires specialized equipment and the expertise of our SERVPRO professionals, as many conventional cleaning methods can allow your siding or brickwork on the exterior of your home to become stained.

Even more detrimental than the need to clean the exterior of your home is the possibility of this smoke and soot damage reaching inside. Many homeowners run their air conditioning units year round, allowing a constant intake of air from the outside to get treated and forced through the ductwork. When this outside air is thick with soot and smoke particles, these get brought into your HVAC system and can get distributed through your home by bypassing a clogged filter.

Cleaning up the interior of your home, as well as the outside of the property, involves the use of high-powered vacuums that can remove the bulk of the residue resting on the material. Cleaning is an intricate process with industrial-grade solvents and detergents.

Sometimes your home does not have to be the center of the disaster to experience some of the effects. No matter what emergency your home faces, trust in the fast response and expertise of our SERVPRO of South Sarasota fire restoration technicians. Give us a call 24/7 at (941) 552-6319.
