Seek Professional Help from SERVPRO to Handle the Fire damage in Your Centerville Property

Several factors cause fires in homes that leave property owners in a devasted state with no idea of where to begin. The professionals from SERVPRO can get your life back to normal by restoring your Centerville home to its preloss condition.

Where should I begin?

Begin by seeking help from SERVPRO technicians who have the skill and experience to restore your Centerville property after fire damage. Our technicians can conduct a comprehensive inspection of the damage. We help our customers to record and document everything in the property for insurance purposes. Our technicians can remove valuable items like upholstered furniture immediately after the inspection so that smoke and soot do not embed themselves into the fibers.

How secure is my property during the restoration process?

Our priority during the restoration process is to protect the property from more damage. We can seal any openings to protect the structure from rainfall and intruders. Our team of technicians can attach plywood to the surface around the holes.

How do you conduct the cleaning and soot removal?

It is difficult to clean out smoke residues after a fire. Our team has access to hi-tech equipment and tools to clean it. Since the stain goes beyond the surface, we can deep scrub, sand, and refurnish the surfaces to rid of the soot on hard surfaces such as the floor.

To remove stains on carpet and furniture, we can use a natural fabric brightener. We mix the product with shampoo super concentrate to remove oxidized stains from cotton and wool.

What about the water damage on my property?

We understand that firefighters often use gallons of water to fight the flames Residual water from fire extinguishing efforts can cause mold to grow throughout the affected areas if it is not mitigated properly. The increased moisture interacts with mold spores. In confined spaces, this allows the mold to proliferate on porous sources. Our water damage restoration service involves:

    •    Inspecting the affected areas.
    •    Extracting water using portable pumps.
    •    Thorough drying using air movers and dehumidifiers.
    •    Cleaning and wiping down all affected surfaces with anti-microbial agents.

Our SERVPRO technicians can also use a ventilation box fan to generate high-velocity airflow. The equipment moves dry air in the property, helping the affected surfaces to dry faster. Also, the box fan removes the charcoal-like odor in the affected area.

After a fire loss in your home, contact SERVPRO of North Leon County immediately at (850) 536-6599 for effective restoration. “Like it never even happened.”
