A fire loss can happen in the blink of an eye and leave behind copious amounts of work to clean up in your home. There are numerous dangers associated with this type of restoration, such as:  

  • Sagging ceilings or unsafe walls and floors
  • Soot can be a potential irritant to breathe or come into contact with
  • It can be unsafe to clean up fire loss on your own, and over-the-counter cleaning solutions can cause more damage to surfaces. 

What Should I Expect During Fire Damage Restoration?

SERVPRO techs approach each fire damage restoration job in St. Petersburg properties in an organized manner. They remove the charred items and carefully describe and photograph them before taking them off-site. This information goes into a report to assist homeowners in expediting insurance claims. The techs use controlled demolition to remove the damaged portions and leave anything part of the structure that needs repairs to return to normal within the home.  

When it comes to repairs, there is no way to rebuild on top of smoke odors. The technicians use different methods to ensure there are no remaining fire scents left in the property including:   

  • Air quality improvements such as air scrubbers during mitigation to capture airborne particulate
  • Cleaning agents to lift away soot off surfaces
  • Hydroxyl generators to neutralize fire odors
  • Thermal fogging to penetrate porous items and halt odors within

Washable fabrics such as pillow covers, clothing, and bedding have a chance for restoration through the use of the powerful Esporta Washing System, which can clean smelly items with pungent smoke odors and leave them like new after just one wash.

SERVPRO of NE St. Petersburg at (727) 522-0000 has years of experience performing fire damage restoration in local properties. With their state-of-the-art equipment and advanced methods, the techs can return your home to its preloss condition.
