What to Do in Siesta Key Homes with Smoke and Fire Damage

The aftermath of a fire brings several challenges for restoration teams. First is the cleanup, which may include water extraction, removal of chemical flame retardants from the structure, and the haul-away of charred debris.

When SERVPRO technicians work on turning around fire damage in Siesta Key homes, they know that odor-causing soot becomes airborne quickly and spreads throughout a structure. The result is an entire home with a pungent smoke odor. One of the best actions a homeowner can take is to turn off the HVAC and close off the fire loss area as well as possible.

Cleaning Smoke Damage Helps Avoid Repainting

SERVPRO technicians have numerous cleaning agents to tackle walls with smoke damage. Dry cleaning sponges make short work of dry smoke residues and pick them up and lift them away from the surfaces. Wet smoke residues are somewhat more tenacious in their hold on the surface and often require the application of a solvent to loosen their grip for thorough cleaning. In many cases, this attention to detail saves homeowners the cost of repainting.

Why Fire Cleanup Needs to Start Quickly

In a fire-damaged home, water gets left behind, and mold infestations have the potential to begin as fast as 24 hours after the event. The technicians hold certifications in Mold Remediation #MRSR3181 and know the warning signs of mold colonies and how to stop them in their tracks.

Duct Inspection and Cleaning

Soot travels quickly through the ductwork of a home. If the HVAC has been running after a fire, SERVPRO technicians inspect and determine if the house needs duct cleaning. This inhibits the smell of smoke odor throughout the home.

Taking the Stress Out of Rebuilding

In the majority of fire damage cleanup situations, there is rebuilding and repairs that need to happen. With their general contractor license #CGC1504870, SERVPRO offers not only restoration but also reconstruction, so the transition is seamless for the homeowner with no need to find and verify a contractor after the fire cleanup completes.

Do not delay if there is fire damage in your home. Call SERVPRO of South Sarasota at (941) 552-6319, and the technicians can restore your home to its preloss condition, "Like it never even happened.
