Fire Damage Restoration Here we have a house on fire that looks to be among some of the worst fires. Fire is no joke as it is extremely dangerous and damaging to property

SERVPRO, that's right!

You've had a fire! Disasters happen, accidents occur, unfortunately this part of life and an event many face every day. I mean a fire can destroy someone's home or means of work that can put yourself or myself in a great amount of stress! When a fire happens sometimes its small and can be put out easily with minimal damage but if there was any kind of smoke then the ducts should be cleaned as these ducts absorb this kind of smoke. If a fire occurs on a larger scale, things can get a lot more difficult as it may bring structural damage or even water damage depending on how the fire was put out. 

SERVPRO of Greater St. Augustine / St. Augustine Beach 

Our team is highly trained, equipped and informed on all procedures for any size fire damage at any time! We should be the first call after our first responders because it's something you want to get taken care of as soon as possible! SERVPRO cleans, preserves, restores and reconstructs as needed. Our team removes soot by scrubbing and cleaning every inch of the affected area as well as all the items in the area affected. If your home has structural issues from the fire, we also do work in demo and recon. Restoring your home or business after fire damage to its pre-fire condition is our main goal. As a leading fire damage restoration company, we specialize in fire damage cleanup and fire restoration, smoke damage cleanup, and removal of smoke odors. Our team will deep clean and remove soot from walls, carpets, and upholstery. 

After any fire damage situation, your primary focus should be safety:

  • Is it safe to stay in the house?
  • Electrical and "slip and fall" hazards are some of the most prevalent concerns.
  • Only do activities that are safe for you to perform.
  • Wet materials can be VERY heavy. Be careful!

Step 1: Emergency Contact

The restoration process begins when you give us a call. Our specialist will ask a series of questions regarding the fire damage event that will help us arrive quickly with the appropriate equipment and resources.

Step 2: Inspection and Fire Damage Assessment

We will carefully inspect and test adjoining rooms of your property to determine the extent of the fire, smoke, and soot damage. This step is crucial to developing a plan of action.

Step 3: Immediate Board-Up and Roof-Tarp Service

Fire damage can often compromise windows, walls, and roofs. To maintain security and to protect against further damage, SERVPRO can board up missing windows and walls and place tarps on damaged roofs.

Step 4: Water Removal and Drying (if water damage is present)

The water removal process begins almost immediately and removes the majority of the water. We will then use dehumidifiers and air movers to remove the remaining water and complete the drying process.

Step 5: Removal of Smoke and Soot from All Surfaces

SERVPRO uses specialized equipment and techniques to remove smoke and soot from ceilings, walls, and other surfaces.

Step 6: Cleaning and Sanitizing

We will clean all of the restorable items and structures that were damaged by the fire. We use a variety of cleaning techniques to restore your belongings to pre-fire condition. We’re also trained to remove odors using industrial air scrubbers and fogging equipment.

Step 7: Restoration

Restoration is the final step—getting your home or business to its pre-fire condition. Restoration may involve minor repairs, such as replacing drywall, painting, and installing new carpet; or it may entail major repairs such as the reconstruction of various areas or rooms in a home or business.

3 Steps to take After St. Johns County House Fire

10/6/2022 (Permalink)

A house fire to your St. Johns County home can completely interrupt your family’s lives. Whether the fire erupted in a single room or affected several bedrooms, it’s vital to take safety precautions before entering the home. These will yield the best results for fire restoration and ensure no one is injured in the process.

1. Schedule an Inspection

No matter how safe your home may seem, schedule an inspection first. SERVPROs fire restoration professionals will check that no live electrical components create a shock or other fire risk and will test gas piping for leaks. They’ll also look at structural damage to make sure the home is safe to enter. This crucial step will reduce the potential for injuries and also kickstart the recovery process.

2. Don’t Start Fire Restoration On Your Own

As tempting as it is to begin cleaning up, wait for the professionals. You can open windows, but avoid plugging in box fans or turning ceiling fans on. These may spark electrical problems or worsen the smoke smell and ash cover. Ideally, you shouldn’t use the electricity at all until an electrician has made necessary repairs. The best course of action is to stay off site until fire damage repair begins.

3. Stay Off Furniture

If you start clearing debris with professionals, stay off of furniture. Most pieces are salvageable if ash and soot don’t sink into the fibers. Sitting on a sofa or bed may press them in and embed a permanent ash smell. Professional fire restoration companies have the proper equipment that deep clean sofas, mattresses, chairs, and other furniture that is lined with fabric. SERVPRO will be able to wipe down the soot, deodorize the fire smell, and return your St. Augustine home back to like it never even happened.
