Tiny Wire Worked Loose in a Switch Plate or Socket can cause Extensive Fire Damage in a Largo Residence

It doesn't always take much to start a fire. A small wire that ends up corroded from too much humidity can short out and start a fire in your Largo home. You might never notice any difference in the strength of the electricity in that area from other parts of the house. 

Electrical fires cause some homes in Largo isolated fire damage. Our building services department, General Contractor License # CBC1250662, helps in these situations by making repairs to your electrical wiring where needed. Reconnecting loosened wires or making other needed repairs also helps reduce the chances of another fire.

Depending on the location and its cause, a fire could spread and create additional fire damage, or it might burn plastics and leave thick soot deposits. Cleaning soot away from surfaces helps us in determining which materials need restoring and which others became too damaged for this method. Some materials are damaged beyond our ability to clean them, so we need to remove them and then, once we finish, have our building team reinstall new materials. 

Cleaning happens with a sponge, in many places where flat surfaces exist, but others require smaller tools. Trim around doors and windows, switch plates and sockets, and air vents also need a thorough cleaning. Furniture also requires wiping down with special dry sponges and in some places, light application of cleaning agents, brushes, and vacuuming. 

Household linens often collect large amounts of soot during a fire. This soot can eat away at the fabric if left alone, so we vacuum much of the soot away from the textiles. Different materials require different cleaning types, and we discuss these with you to provide the best results. 

The personal belongings of your family members fall into several different category types and SERVPRO has matching methods to restore most, if not all, of these. We have access to different methods that can clean items made of soft materials or non-porous ones. Anything that needs packed up and taken to our facility for cleaning gets inventoried as we place the items in the boxes. We also do the same for any items and building materials that were too damaged for restoration.

SERVPRO of Largo is always ready and near you when your Dunedin or Clearwater Beach residence sustains fire damage from overheated electrical wires or appliances. Call us at our service line, (727) 586-0060, for help in restoring your property “Like it never even happened.”
