The Ultimate Guide to Fire Damage Remediation In Sarasota
Removing Stubborn Soots and Odors after Fire Damage in Sarasota
The problematic aspect of most fire restoration jobs is in removing stubborn soots and odors rather than replacing structure or appliances. We call this process returning the property to its preloss condition. Doing so requires deodorization as well as a full range of chemical agents to remove all signs and smells of soiling professionally. Our service uses local technicians that are highly trained in the safe access, assessment and application of property restoration.
You can arrange a service to remediate losses after fire damage in Sarasota by reaching out to us on our twenty four hour emergency line. Notifying us of the extent of damages allows us to tailor the skillset of technical support. SERVPRO staff hold Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certifications (IICRC) in a range of property restoration areas. We can send both Odor Control Technicians (OCT) and Fire Restoration Technicians (FRT) to your property within four hours of notification of loss.
The types of smoke damage caused by fire are as variable as the fire itself. A slow burning fire typically causes massive buildup because there is more time for the smoke to erode finishes and become embedded in the surface. Synthetic materials, for example, burn slowly and create unpleasant odors. SERVPRO use abrasive cleaners with corrosive chemical agents that can prove useful in removing stubborn stains without risking the spread of soiling to unaffected areas or surfaces.
High-temperature fires that involve the burning of natural materials can spread soots quickly across the home. As these soot travel, they can drop onto surfaces, mattresses, and upholstery. A SERVPRO technician can use a foam cleaning technique on soft surfaces that reduces the risk of shrinkage or bleeding dyes. We can also apply a liquid deodorant solution to find and neutralize odors from inside fabrics or soft furnishings.
As a rule of thumb, deodorization works best by recreating the conditions that spread the odor in the first place. Since fire odors are caused by smoke, we use thermal foggers to vaporize deodorants and fumigate the property. Since vapor behaves in a similar way to smoke, this method can be particularly useful in clearing ventilation shafts or other cavities in the home.
