SERVPRO’s Individualized Fire Restoration Plan Transforms South Miami Residences After the Unique Types of Damage Created by Smoke and Soot

The soiling left behind a South Miami household fire is unlike ordinary dirt, grime, wear, and tear. Choosing to try to manage the residues created by the heat and flames and incompletely combusted building materials with a general-purpose cleaner and technique dooms you to nearly inevitable failure. You also risk exposing yourself and your loved ones to toxic substances through skin contact and inhalation.

What Is So Different About Fire Residues?

Fire restoration in South Miami requires professional intervention. As the flames burn through structures and contents, a broad range of chemical reactions occur, creating carcinogenic gasses and hazardous soots -- tiny particles of partially burned materials floating in the air and coat surfaces. Common construction materials transform into thick, sticky, malodorous, and dangerous residues. The debris is highly corrosive, immediately commencing destructive processes to all surfaces they touch.

How Do Professional Restorers Approach Fire Cleanup?

A fast but safety-minded response is required. SERVPRO techs use proprietary cleaning products and the knowledge gleaned during the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) classes to match cleaners, tools, and methods to a variety of soots. We also take advantage of our inventory of advanced equipment to control hazards and protect our team.
    •    Wearing personal protective equipment (PPE) during assessment and restoration tasks
    •    Constructing temporary containment areas using 1.6 mil polyethylene and installing negative pressure air scrubbers to filter the atmosphere and seal the perimeters of workspaces.
