Ocean Park Damages from Fires Can Be Restored by SERVPRO

SERVPRO Restores Damaged Properties in Ocean Park Caused by Fires

The National Fire Protection Association reports that more than one-third of fires are structural in nature. Many fires are caused by smoking, electrical systems, or cooking food. Your home or business is an investment. After a structural fire, you need help to manage this disaster.

When you survive a fire, you may not feel like doing anything at all. You feel down, alone, and not sure what to do next to pick up the pieces from this life altering event. Your Ocean Park property may have sustained fire damages, and priceless mementos may have been lost in the blaze. Do not despair after this catastrophe;  SERVPRO can restore your property to its preloss condition under normal circumstances.

In restoring fire damage, you must consider the different types of destruction caused by fires. Materials may be partially or entirely consumed in the combustion event. Heat and smoke residue impact structural materials. Finally, water and chemical agents left behind during the extinguishing process can cause further problems with your home. Materials in your home may be burned, charred, smoked, or even damaged by intense heat. Rapid cleanup can mitigate secondary fire damage.

There are several levels of fire damage requiring different responses from our fire restoration technicians. The disaster is classified from minor to major. At each level, various restoration services are available.

Minor
With minor fire damages, you may see some smoke residue in certain rooms or areas. Few spots may need to be repainted and surfaces may require minor dry sponge cleaning or wet cleaning of interior hard surfaces and walls. Non-salvageable elements are few or none.

Medium
In a medium fire disaster, smoke damage is moderate, water damage is more significant and requires a professional service for removal. Large areas may need repainting or replacement of building materials.

Major
Major fires include severe and prolonged intense heat and fire damage, with significant smoke residues. Major structural repairs and rebuilds may be needed after the initial clean up. Smoke, soot, and ash demand remediation to prevent ongoing damage and to eliminate odors. These restoration tasks are best left to the professional Fire & Smoke Restoration Technicians from SERVPRO. Our team can use hydroxyl generators and ozone machines to capture and eliminate most of the airborne smoke particles. Fogging is a technique to finish the sanitizing and disinfecting of the restored area.
