SERVPRO Knows How to Handle Fire Restoration in Plantation
Emergency Fire Restoration Steps to Limit Overall Damages
When a home in Plantation suffers fire damage, emergency measures can be taken to limit the development of further issues. Fortunately for local homeowners, SERVPRO understands this and knows what should and should not be done to mitigate overall fire-related problems.
Once on-site, SERVPRO facilitates fire restoration efforts in Plantation by actively working to limit the severity of damages that need to be addressed. In the long run, these proactive steps make it much easier to perform house fire clean up, smoke remediation, and fire restoration work on fire damaged homes. The specific things our trained technicians initially do to mitigate blaze-related damage are:
- Conducting preliminary safety inspections, establishing emergency electricity for necessary cleaning and restoration efforts, pre-cleaning excessively sooted contents, and securing the property by fencing in perimeters and boarding up windows
- Setting up drying equipment, removing excess interior moisture resulting from firefighting measures, and starting the deodorization of the residence
- Warning residents about what they should not do to protect their property; this includes telling them not to wash walls, clean carpets or upholstery on their own, operate uncleaned or unchecked electrical appliances/equipment and avoid sending soot-soiled garments to dry cleaners inexperienced in handling fire-damaged clothing
- Advising occupants about what they can do to help remediators and speed up restoration work; this involves recommending that they limit movement within their home to prevent the spread of soot particles, avoid touching contents with soot-covered hands, clean and protect chrome fixtures with a lubricant, and change the furnace filter and cover the air registers of HVAC systems operating during a fire
With all of this in mind, it is no wonder why SERVPRO of Ft. Lauderdale South is one of the most trusted fire restoration services in this area. So, whenever you need your fire-damaged home cleaned up and restored, don’t hesitate to call us at (954) 776-2000.
