Why SERVPRO Handles Fire Debris Cleanup in Lakeland Better


Fire incidents in Lakeland leave a wide range of debris depending on the intensity of the flames and the materials in the affected areas. Smoke forms the smaller debris type while items partially burnt by the flames form the larger kind. Whatever the size, there is a need to remove all forms of remains left by a fire. With a team of certified FSRT, Fire & Smoke Restoration Technicians, we can help you deal with removal and disposal of the remnants after a fire incident.

It is necessary to follow the right procedures for positive results during fire debris cleanup in Lakeland. While the goal is to leave the affected areas clean, it is also good to ensure that nothing useful is tossed in the process. It is easy to throw away items that cleaning or other restorative actions can help save. Our SERVPRO technicians separate burnt items into categories such as unsalvageable and questionable. We then transport the questionable items offsite for further inspection and cleaning helping you save additional items that you would have thrown away.

The ash formed after a fire also requires proper removal especially if the fire was intensive to form it in large amounts. The main problem with ash is its propensity to spread mainly through air currents or if people walk around the affected areas. Our SERVPRO technicians use various advanced equipment to deal with ash without getting it into the air. We use HEPA filtered vacuum cleaners to remove ash residue from areas that wet cleaning can damage further. For other areas, we can use pressure washers.

Soot and other smoke debris spread the most during a fire. The main problem with these residues is the tendency to adhere to surfaces. The adhesion happens because smoke moves through heat currents and, heat opens up pores on many surfaces allowing the residues to penetrate beyond the surface. Smoke residues are also acidic and can, therefore, corrode or stain some surfaces. Our SERVPRO technicians handle smoke debris easily because we understand smoke behavior. For example, when synthetic materials burn, the residue left tends to be wet and smeary, thus making it harder to remove compared to smoke residue from natural materials like wood which is dry.
