Recovering Safely From Fire Damage In North Fort Meyers
SERVPRO Professionals Can Quickly Remediate Your Property
Living on the Florida Gulf Coast can seem like a permanent vacation, and the last thing you expected to complicate matters was a house fire that changes a day at the beach to an ordeal of fear and confusion. SERVPRO will be there for you to help sort out the options and work with your insurance company if a moment of distraction or accident causes a fire in your kitchen or other area of you home. We will be on your site within hours of your first call, ready to assess the situation and develop a plan to bring your home back to pre-loss condition. Our technicians are well-trained and certified, very experienced in fire restoration techniques while also being very compassionate as you and your family deal with the aftermath of the fire.
One question you may have right away is whether you are able to continue living in your home after it has suffered fire damage in North Fort Meyers. Sometimes it is very obvious that you need to secure temporary housing if major structural parts of your home are damaged by the fire. If walls, stairs or floors are unstable, we may recommend leaving until they can be made safe. When mechanical systems such as heating and cooling are inoperable, or the water or electrical services are interrupted, we will work with your insurance company to find short term lodging until those components of healthy modern living can be restored. Any time parts of your home are open to the elements after fire damage, we will secure those areas and help you make the decision whether it is smart to stay before repairs are made.
Even if the structure of your home is stable enough to continue living inside, you may have experienced significant smoke damage, complicated by chemical retardant use, water damage that has led to microbial growth or other air quality issues. If the fire was confined to the kitchen area, secondary issues still can extend into other rooms of the house. SERVPRO can treat both microbial growth and odors with professional products, but care needs to be taken that you and your family are not exposed to harmful chemicals. If we can create a safety barrier between our working area and unaffected spaces in your home, it can be possible for fire damage restoration to be done while you live in a protected area.
