Assessing Damage to Coconut Grove Homes After a Fire
Fire disasters can be overwhelming for Coconut Grove homeowners, as damaging conditions can spread quickly through the property even after extinguishment occurs. With many properties that rely on being open and available to the public, such as the open-air mall CocoWalk, damage evaluations should begin as soon as possible. We have experienced and friendly project managers that can walk through damaged businesses and houses with the owner to ensure that the right information gets cataloged, including the current effects, the damaged contents, standing water concerns, and pre-existing conditions.
Smoke Damage and Fire Cleanup for Coconut Grove Structures
Combustion can lead to the production of smoke and soot damage that adheres to surfaces and contents throughout a home or business. Fires that threaten massive structures like Florida International University could impact hundreds or even thousands of students and faculty. Soot can be a dangerous presence in fire loss environments, so we employ air scrubbers and hydroxyl generators as soon as possible. We also have effective cleaning strategies to protect original construction materials in some cultural centers like the Miami Science Museum and the historic Trapp Homestead.
Fire Damage Repairs and Reconstruction
As a leading fire restoration company in the region, we offer a full-service approach that provides restoration services and reconstruction as necessary. While this can benefit larger structures like Mercy Hospital, it can also save homeowners time and money on making fire losses "Like it never even happened."

Our Fire Restoration Process
Every fire damage event is a little different and requires a unique solution, but the general process stays the same. The steps listed below illustrate our process for the “typical” fire damage emergency.
Step 1: Emergency Contact
The fire restoration process begins when you call us. Our consultant will guide you through the crisis and may ask several questions to help us better understand the type of fire damage you experienced, determining the equipment and resources needed.
Step 2: Inspection and Fire Damage Assessment
We determine the scope of the fire and smoke damage by examining the affected areas and by testing the adjoining rooms for smoke and soot damage. An accurate assessment is crucial to the planning process.
Step 3: Immediate Board-Up and Roof-Tarp Service (if needed)
Fire damage can often compromise windows, walls, and roofs. To maintain security and to protect against further damage, we can board up missing windows and walls and place tarps on damaged roofs.
Step 4: Water Removal and Drying (if water damage is present)
If needed, we can begin the water removal process with powerful pumps and extraction units. This removes most of the water. We complete the water removal and drying process with industrial-strength dehumidifiers and air movers.
Step 5: Removal of Smoke and Soot from All Surfaces
Your property’s ceiling, walls, floors, and other surfaces will likely have smoke and soot residue. We’ll use specialized cleaning products, equipment, and techniques to properly clean your home or business.
Step 6: Cleaning and Sanitizing
We clean and sanitize the restorable items and structures damaged by the fire. Our professionals 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 process or restoring your home or business to its pre-fire condition. Restoration may involve relatively minor repairs, such as replacing drywall and painting, or it could include significant reconstruction of entire rooms.
