When a Fire Occurs, Call the Experts

8/10/2022 (Permalink)

This is before and after a kitchen fire.

When a fire occurs, your main concern is safety. Once everyone has evacuated and the fire has been put out, you are left with ash and soot. Where do you go from here? Call in the professionals at SERVPRO of Gainesville West/Alachua County West. Not just the brand you can trust, but the family you can trust.

The first thing SERVPRO does when arriving on site is assess the situation. We will go through your home taking a look at all affected areas. Then we will pretest the restorability of items within your home. By pretesting, we determine what can be restored versus what must be replaced. We try our very best to restore versus replace, because we know how much you value your things.

One component that makes fire damage that much more difficult to clean up is smoke. There are multiple types of smoke, therefore there are multiple cleaning methods used for fire damage.

Examples of smoke include:

Wet smoke: plastics and rubbers are low heat, smoldering, pungent odor, sticky, smeary;

Dry smoke: paper and wood, which are fast burning, high temperatures;

Protein fire residue: evaporation of material; and

Fuel oil soot: furnace puff backs. 

Each type of smoke requires a different cleaning method and is therefore a cleaning job best left to the professionals. 

If you have a fire in your home or business, call SERVPRO at (352)374-6589. We will be more than happy to visit the site, assess the situation and provide you with an accurate estimate for fire damage restoration. Then, we can make it "Like it never even happened" for you.
