Steps that Help Protect a Structure after Fire Damage in Largo
When fire razes your Largo home, there is a need to take some steps to help protect the structure from secondary damages. When performed correctly, such steps help prevent aspects of the damage such as smoke residues from causing additional damages. They also ensure safety for occupants and restorers who may access the building in its damaged state. Our IICRC, Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification, certified Fire and Smoke Restoration Technicians can help protect your structure.
Conducting building inspection helps establish whether the fire damage incident in Largo left any health or safety hazards. Lingering smoke which might be noxious or contain harmful gases poses health risks. Partially burnt sections such as stairs are safety hazards because they can collapse under the bodyweight of someone using them. Our SERVPRO technicians take note of such areas and secure them or post warning signs to protect anyone visiting the affected property.
Fire damages walls, roofs and even causes windows to shatter depending on the cause or the intensity of the blaze. Firefighters also douse the flames with gallons of water leaving wet areas. These aspects can cause several secondary damages. Our SERVPRO technicians board up the property and install roof tarps which helps prevent damage by weather elements and keep vandals out. We also extract any standing water using our truck-mounted water extractors and take other steps to dry excess moisture.
Initial cleaning of contents affected by the fire is necessary. It helps ensure the occupants have items to use as they wait for the completion of the restoration. Initial cleaning also helps prevent secondary damage from the effects of acidic soot residues. Our SERVPRO crews pre-clean carpets and furniture to remove massive soot deposits. We also wipe porcelain, stone and metal items to prevent staining. We also remove charred item remains immediately from the property because it helps reduce the emotional toll fire incidents have on the occupants.
