How SERVPRO Experts Inspect & Secure Lakeland Homes After A Home Fire
Fire occurrences in Lakeland can create a wide variety of damages depending on the severity of the fire and the debris in the affected areas. Smoke forms a smaller debris type, while items not completely burnt by the flames can create a larger type. Whatever the size, it is necessary to remove all forms of debris created and left by the fire. Our team of professionals can assist with the removal & disposal of the debris. Our team of professionals are highly trained and certified FSRT, Fire & Smoke Restoration Technicians.
During the fire debris cleanup, it is necessary to follow the correct procedures for positive results. While the main objective is to restore the affected areas, it is also important to ensure that nothing useful is thrown away. It can be easy to throw away items that can be saved by accident but with our team, we have an effective process to salvage as many items as possible. Our SERVPRO technicians separate burnt items into categories such as unsavory and questionable. Our team then transport the questionable items off-site for further evaluation and cleaning.
The ash created after a fire also requires careful disposal, especially if the fire was severe in order to form it in large quantities. The main concern with ash is its natural tendency to spread primarily through air currents or when people walk around the affected areas. Our SERVPRO technicians use a wide range of advanced systems to deal with ash without getting it into the air. We use HEPA filtered vacuum cleaners to remove contaminants of ash from areas in which wet cleaning can cause further damage. We can use pressure washers for other areas.
Soot, as well as other smoke debris, have scattered during a fire. The main issue with these contaminants is the tendency to adhere to the exterior. Adhesion occurs because smoke keeps moving through heat flows, and heat opens pores on many surfaces, enabling residues to enter beyond the surface. Smoke residues are also acidic and therefore may corrode or stain some surface areas. Our SERVPRO technicians understand smoke debris easily because we know the behavior of smoke. For example, after organic products are burnt, the left residue appears to be moist and sticky, making it more difficult to clean natural materials such as dry wood relative to cigarette residue. Cleaning fire debris can be a hectic exercise. Call SERVPRO of Bartow / Lakeland at (863) 510-5962 for a smooth cleanup process. We're Faster To Any Size Disaster.
