Fire Damage In Cape Coral Home Leaves Water Damaged Mess

Fire damage is bad enough in a home. Often after a fire, water damage from extinguishing efforts is also an issue. In some cases, the addition of the excessive moisture can push some items that had the potential for reuse through cleaning, past the point of no return in terms of restorability through our specialized cleaning methods if there is any delay in cleanup.

SERVPRO answered a call to cleanup fire damage in a Cape Coral kitchen. An oven fire spread throughout the room, and there was not only soot and smoke residue but water damage as well. Soot is caustic, metal, for example, corrodes if soot remains on the surface, and the introduction of water amplifies that trait.?

Our technicians extract the water and scope the room to ensure that no areas of excessive moisture remain. Then we wipe down wet surfaces to get as much soot cleaned away on those surfaces as possible. Because hot air expands during a fire, soot winds up deeply embedded into porous objects and even the paint on the walls. We carefully inspect both possessions as well as the walls and floors for restorability potential through cleaning to lessen the amount of fire loss for the homeowner.

Standard fire cleaning techniques SERVPRO uses include:
    •    Dry cleaning sponges for removal of high-heat fire residue
    •    Wet sponges used in tandem with our professional cleaning solutions to cut through greasy, smeary smoke residues
    •    Full immersion cleaning on non-porous items

After fire debris and smoke cleanup, it is vital to remove any lingering smoke odors and guard against mold. Our technicians ensure the indoor humidity levels are below ideal conditions for spore germination and growth. We also apply any needed odor control measures to leave the property smelling fresh instead of charred and musty.

When fire damage happens, contact SERVPRO of Cape Coral at (239) 573-5911 no matter how big or small the problem. Our certified professionals have the training and equipment to make your fire loss "Like it never even happened.”
