The Importance of Testing for Restoration of Fire Damage to Pinellas County Homeowner
Cleaning the mess left behind by fire is more complicated than you might think. The challenges stem from the fact that a fire is not one single action, but rather a series of reactions. Each result is unique and can be influenced by materials, temperature, airflow and surface textures. The only way to combat the varied challenges of fire is by taking a varied, educated approach to restoration.
When we approach fire damage in Pinellas County, we make no assumptions about the best method of cleaning. A SERVPRO technician is trained to thoroughly pre-test the affected area before any work begins. A pre-test provides us with invaluable information about the type of smoke we are dealing with, the nature of the materials that have burned and how well they respond to different methods of cleaning.
It is not uncommon for properties that require restoration to be at high risk of secondary damages. The water used to contain a fire whether by sprinkler or because of fire-fighting efforts can set residues causing permanent damage and staining. Equally, porous materials or older surfaces absorb soot and can be more difficult to clean. By testing for every variable, a SERVPRO technician can accurately assess outcomes and ensure an efficient service.
Cleaning and restoration are more cost-effective than replacement in the majority of services we carry out. These savings you may enjoy by our service remaining within the budget of your insurance claim. By us working with your insurance adjuster, the result can lessen the likelihood of your insurance rates increasing after a claim. SERVPRO has many different methods to restore your home and prevent costs from stacking up.
When it comes to clearing away soot and smoke residues wet cleaning is beneficial. For set residues, we may apply abrasive cleaning solution or steel wool to the affected area. Porous or delicate contents can benefit from dry-cleaning along with expensive fabrics and upholstery. No matter the type of material, SERVPRO can work toward a restore over replace method throughout the service. Often we can continue cleaning of personal possessions at our facility using Esporta washers and ultrasonic tubs. We provide many options in our quest to restore and not replace.
