Different Types of Fire Damages to Coral Terrace Properties

Understanding the type of residues and lingering effects left behind after a Coral Terrace structure fire is vital to choose the appropriate cleaning and fire damage restoration approach. Smoke residues and soot are often among the most challenging obstacles, and these require understanding the type of coating and soiling left on surfaces and contents. Restaurants like you might see near the Coral Villas Park and AD Barnes Park often battle protein residues when grease fires ignite portions of the bustling kitchen area. Homes battling humid conditions might face wet smoke threats, which becomes a thick and challenging coating on wall surfaces, ceilings, and contents.

Fire Cleanup and Restoration Services

As a leading fire restoration company in Coral Terrace, we continue to train and educate our responding technicians with the latest strategies, methods, and equipment. When properties like the Nicklaus Children’s Hospital and the West Gables Rehabilitation Hospital require cleaning and mitigation services, we have confident and qualified personnel to get the job started quickly to minimize the spread of the incident and the patients and staff affected.

Fire Damage Repairs

Rebuilding after a fire loss is not uncommon, and with nearly 25,000 residents in the community, devastating structure fires are an inevitability. With in-house contractors, we can help homes get the repairs and build back they need after a fire loss. We have trained building trade professionals to help with larger structures too, such as the Biltmore School.

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 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 (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)

The water removal process begins almost immediately and removes the majority of the water. We 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

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

Any restorable items will be cleaned and sanitized. We’ll use a variety of specialized cleaning techniques to restore your belongings to pre-fire condition. Our professionals will also remove smoke and other odors using advanced air scrubbing equipment and fogging devices with deodorizers.

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.
