Don't Let Smoke Get in Your Eyes

Fire Damage in a Coral Gables Home May Sustain Smoke Damage

Once your home in Coral Gables has sustained fire damage, obtaining professional fire damage restoration services is important. This restoration process is complex, and the following may sound counter-intuitive. After the inferno, water removal is required because of the firefighters efforts to extinguish the flames. This involves using special equipment to dry out the structure. Water pumps, wet vacs, and dehumidifiers are some of the state-of-the-art equipment employed by SERVPRO technicians for this very important task. Learn more about how securing smoke and fire damage restoration services can assist you by reviewing the following outline: 

The Smoke Damage Assessment

There are two primary components of the smoke damage restoration process: determining the extent of the smoke damage and identifying the type of smoke that has been combusted. For these reasons and more, it's almost always prudent for homeowners to hire professional assistance when smoke damage restoration becomes necessary. These skilled SERVPRO technicians possess the extensive experience, equipment, and expertise necessary to grapple with unwanted smoke damage irrespective of its severity. This restoration company will complete this process by doing a thorough assessment of your property. During this time, you'll also need to contact your insurance agent to ensure that they are aware of the fire damage. In some cases, the insurance company will refer you to a professional fire damage restoration company that they trust. SERVPRO works with over 300 insurance providers and property management companies. If this happens, the two companies will likely work together, SERVPRO providing input, to draft a cost-effective settlement, meaning that you may not have to pay as much money out of pocket. And the entire process can get underway more quickly.

Cleaning Your Home

After performing a thorough fire damage assessment, SERVPRO will move forward with the cleanup process. It is critically important that the cleanup project is initiated as soon as possible.  As previously stated, water removal has to be the number one priority. Otherwise, mold, mildew, and harmful bacteria will have an opportunity to start growing in your home.  Additionally, these remediation specialists will make use of cleaners and deodorizers to eliminate soot and smoke from your property, along with the odors.
