Your Local SERVPRO Provides All Services Plantation Residents Need to Recover from a Fire

When restoration professionals in Plantation arrive after the fire, prioritization of firefighting water and chemical mitigation and remediation seem surprising. The destruction caused by the fire requires water recovery efforts to proceed immediately for detailed reasons that a reputable disaster company makes clear from the start.

How Does Water Damage Complicate Recovery Efforts?

The firefighters use all the extinguishers and water needed to knock back the flames when responding to the fire damage at your Plantation home. Significant safety issues present because of the quantity and contamination of the water, and these concerns must resolve before our team cleans up smoke and fire residues. Unsafe conditions caused by water include:

-Slip, trip, and fall risks
-Electrical shock
-Collapse of ceilings and walls from water weight and pressure
-Damage to building materials, including moisture migrating far from the fire site
-Mold growth
-Contact with toxins and hazards such as lead and asbestos leached into the water

Will I need to Hire Different Contractors for Water Damage?

Industry best practices demand that restoration professionals master all aspects of responding to a fire loss, including removing water and drying the structure. SERVPRO trains and equips our managers and technicians for comprehensive disaster response, counting water and fire damage restoration as the foundation of all we do.

What Are Other Advantages of Our All-Encompassing Approach to Fire Damage Restoration?

While one crew is concentrating on the water damage, our project manager uses the time to assess the smoke and soot damage so we can move forward quickly. As we switch to the cleaning and deodorization of the fire residues, we also evaluate the repair and rebuilding of the original damage or any controlled demolition. As general contractors, we can transition to these final restoration steps seamlessly.
