How Small Fires Create Significant Damage in Ormond

Fire Damage How Small Fires Create Significant Damage in Ormond Even though this fire was contained to the kitchen, smoke and soot traveled throughout the home.

Restoration after Fire Damage in Ormond Includes Structure, Contents, and Deodorization Techniques

House fires in Ormond can create unexpected hardships for your family, but SERVPRO understands how our presence can help with recovering and getting everything “Like it never even happened” again for you. Fire produces chemical changes, as well as physical ones. When things inside your house burn, their combustion produces smoke while becoming damaged. The smoke leaves a residue that continues to produce odors and contaminate anything that it comes into contact. 

Residents do not need a considerable blaze to experience fire damage in Ormond and the problems it creates. Smaller, more isolated fires can also cause issues. SERVPRO trains employees to the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) standards, preparing them for the wide variety of restoration tasks your house requires. Visibly, you can see the damage to your property's structure, as well as many of your family's personal belongings. Even after extensive cleaning and restoration work, odors can continue to make their way through the air and bother your family. 

At SERVPRO, we address your home's issues at the best opportune time. Deodorization work cannot begin before we clean and restore structural deficits, and we need to check the safety of the overall framework to ensure safe working conditions. Contents need attention to their situation, as well, and a rapid response to this area of your property means less permanent damage occurs. 

Cleaning of your home's contents involves brushes, sponges, small vacuums, and even toothpicks and cotton swabs, as the individual item requires. Some items can get cleaned best in our ultrasonic bath equipment. At your home, we search for areas containing soot inside walls, behind drywall, and in cabinets. We remove residue from such regions, and when heavy carbon seems embedded in materials, we might prime the area before restoration begins. 

Once the contents and structure no longer contain soot and smoke residue in accessible areas, we deodorize with different treatments. These can include thermal fogging, ozone or hydroxyl generation, among others. We discuss with you the benefits and drawbacks of each, as well as their effectiveness. Keeping communication open with our customers is one way we ensure their satisfaction and the completeness of our work.
