Ft. Lauderdale, FL Fire Damage Cleanup and Restoration

How Damaging Can Fires Become for Ft. Lauderdale Homes?

After a fire disaster, there is a finite timeline to begin emergency services, mitigation, and restoration practices in Ft. Lauderdale. The longer that your property goes without the repairs and cleaning it requires, the more widespread and concentrated conditions like soot, odors, and other threats become. From residues on walls and contents to removing harsh odors, our SERVPRO of Ft. Lauderdale South team has the products and personnel to help. With a city of more than 180,000 and growing, fires can be a constant threat at all hours of the night.

Cleaning Up Kitchen Fires in Ft. Lauderdale

Protein residues and grease can be a considerable challenge for even our experienced team to address. With more than 4000 restaurants in the city alone, a fast pace can leave your business vulnerable to unexpected disasters like flare-ups from the burners. Agitative cleaning and abrasive removal techniques like soda blasting and emulsification can often preserve underlying materials like cabinets, flooring, and wall systems. As a popular tourist destination, our city thrives on availability for customers, from its museums to the long stretches of beachfront.

Our Fire Restoration Process

Every fire damage event is a little different and requires a unique solution, but the general process stays the same. The steps listed below illustrate our process for the “typical” fire damage emergency.

Step 1: Emergency Contact

The fire restoration process begins when you call us. Our consultant will guide you through the crisis and may ask several questions to help us better understand the type of fire damage you experienced, determining the equipment and resources needed.

Step 2: Inspection and Fire Damage Assessment

We determine the scope of the fire and smoke damage by examining the affected areas and by testing the adjoining rooms for smoke and soot damage. An accurate assessment is crucial to the planning process. 

Step 3: Immediate Board-Up and Roof-Tarp Service (if needed)

In many fire damage cases, it’s necessary to board up missing windows and walls and to place tarps on a damaged roof. This helps to maintain security and to protect against further damage. 

Step 4: Water Removal and Drying (if water damage is present)

The water removal process begins almost immediately and removes the majority of the water. We then use dehumidifiers and air movers to remove the remaining water and complete the drying process. 

Step 5: Removal of Smoke and Soot from All Surfaces

We use specialized equipment and techniques to remove smoke and soot from ceilings, walls, and other surfaces. 

Step 6: Cleaning and Sanitizing

We clean and sanitize the restorable items and structures damaged by the fire. Our professionals use a variety of cleaning techniques to restore your belongings to pre-fire condition. We’re also trained to remove odors using industrial air scrubbers and fogging equipment.

Step 7: Restoration

Restoration is the final step—getting your home or business to its pre-fire condition. Restoration may involve minor repairs, such as replacing drywall, painting, and installing new carpet; or it may entail major repairs such as the reconstruction of various areas or rooms in a home or business.
