Fire & Water - Cleanup & Restoration

Fire Damage, Water Damage, and Maybe Mold in Tallahassee, Oh My!

9/17/2019 (Permalink)

Active blazing fire on a kitchen stove. We know fire damage can consume your home in Tallahassee, if not taken care of properly the damage will get worse.

SERVPRO knows there stuff, when it comes to a fire in your Tallahassee home.

Fire damage delivers a host of issues to a residential property. The charred debris, the water from extinguishing efforts, and then the prospect of mold brings the need for professional restoration services to the forefront. 

Clearing fire damage from a Tallahassee property necessitates several steps to ensure the home is safe for habitation. Soot is unhealthy to breath (not to mention the foul odor) and requires removal for a healthy environment to live in. The challenge comes for SERVPRO technicians as soot particles exist smaller than humans can see, and that is why they deploy specialized equipment to remove these microscopic specks. 


Consumer-grade equipment simply cannot match the specialized machinery SERVPRO technicians have access to. Air scrubbers for the removal of soot particles to robust odor control units increase the chances of restorability to more of the building structure and contents for the best outcome. 

Fire Debris Cleanup and Removal

It is vital to remove any charred items as they have zero restoration potential and spread odor. Sheetrock frequently shows double damage from not only the fire but also water damage. Once wicked into the sheetrock, it buckles and warps requiring cutting away. 

Correct Cleaning Methods

A single room may show different types of smoke damage and require different methods of cleaning depending on the temperature of the blaze and the items consumed by the fire. For example, high heat fires produce a dry smoke that causes more damage when exposed to liquid cleaners and instead needs a dry-sponge cleaning approach for removal. While wet smoke residues require suspension using oil-based or solvent cleansers to release their grip on the surface for successful removal. Metal beams attract smoke webs around the ceiling; in particular, they are found in corners and can be swept away cleanly. 

When fire damage is a problem, contact SERVPRO of North Leon County at (850) 536-6599. Our emergency response technicians are available 24/7 to make the fire loss to your home and contents "Like it never even happened."
