After A Fire Has Damaged Your Daytona Beach Home, Call Our Specialists For Help!
Fire Damage Restoration In Your Daytona Beach Home
Fires in home garages or workshops in Daytona Beach are a serious matter. Typical workshops and garages have all kinds of flammable materials in them, such as gasoline, paint thinner, sawdust, greasy rags, and wood. There are often heat sources as well like furnaces and water heaters. The key to making your garage or workshop as fireproof as you can is to ensure you have the right equipment and you practice safe choices.
When a fire has left behind fire damage in your Dayton Beach garage, however, you need help cleaning up the mess. SERVPRO staff have been expertly trained to restore your work area after even a small fire. With the knowledge and equipment needed, we can make it, so it was “Like it never even happened.”
Establishing safe habits is your first step to fire prevention. When you sand or cut wood, for example, wood chips and sawdust are created. These small pieces are very combustible, so they need to be swept up right away. After using any solvents, paint, finishing oils or stain, seal the containers and store them safely. Dispose of any oily rags as well to avoid spontaneous combustion. Putting them in a steel bucket with a self-closing lid is one way, or you can hang them on a line in a single layer to dry away from fire and heat sources.
When you request us to help you clean up fire damage, SERVPRO technicians also need to eliminate the smoke smell. Some of the equipment our crew uses include ozone generators, air scrubbers, and thermal foggers. An ozone generator helps us eliminate various odors from the fire, generating ozone which chemically reacts with molecules that cause odor. Air scrubbers remove airborne particles, including gases and odors. Thermal foggers vaporize petroleum or solvent-based deodorizers and generate a fog or smoke that consists of microscopic particles. These particles create a fog that is similar to the smoke from the fire, letting the deodorizer interact more effectively with the residues that are causing the odors.
You should also make sure you have the right safety equipment stocked in your workshop or garage which includes a fire extinguisher, preferably close to an exit door. You also need a smoke alarm, and you might want to think about installing a sprinkler system as well.
