How We Get Started Removing Smoke Residues From Your Lakeland Home After A Fire
How Smoke Residues Form In Your Lakeland Property When It Experiences Fire Damage
Fire damage does not stop the moment the fire has been put off by the firefighters. The resulting soot particles and the water that was used to extinguish the fire may subject your property to additional damage. You need to work with restoration professionals to salvage your items and return your Lakeland Property to its pre-fire state.
All fire damage events that take place in Lakeland are not the same. Therefore, our SERVPRO technicians must come up with unique solutions that fit the different challenges. To understand the incident better, we have to perform a site inspection to determine the degree of destruction. It is a very crucial step since it helps us to come up with an action plan. When such incidents occur, the security of your property is compromised since roofs, walls, and windows may experience significant damage. We can board up the missing walls and windows as well as place tarps over the damaged roofs.
At this point, our SERVPRO technicians can locate and identify the different kinds of smoke residues in the structure. If your property experienced a fast burning fire, there are high chances of finding dry smoke residues at the site. These types of residues are dry and powdery, and they usually do not stain pale surfaces. Though they are easy to clean, it can be challenging when they fall on porous areas and into cracks.
Slow burning fires are usually associated with low temperatures and lead to the formation of wet smoke residues. Usually, they have a strong odor and are sticky and thick. They can easily smear on areas and can be challenging to clean. Some fire incidents can lead to the formation of protein residues. Protein residues have offensive and powerful odors and are virtually invisible, though they can discolor finishes, varnishes, and paints. The type of residues at the site determine the cleaning methods that our SERVPRO technicians use. Some of the techniques include thermal fogging, HEPA vacuuming, dry cleaning, and wet cleaning.
Irrespective of the type of smoke residues in your property, SERVPRO of Bartow / Lakeland Highlands perform comprehensive inspections and uses specialized equipment to clean and restore your contents. If you want your home or business "Like it never even happened," call us at (863) 510-5962.
