The Biggest Problem After a Fire in Rockledge can Oftentimes be Water Damage
Saving a Structure from Effects of Fire Damage in Rockledge
After fire affects a structure, several steps are necessary to restore it to its preloss condition. Structure means anything permanently fixed to the building. Therefore, fixtures such as cabinets, HVAC systems, floors, and attached floor coverings are part of the structure. We offer professional restoration services that can help deal with the damage "Like it never even happened."
Water plays a part in any restoration effort of fire damage in Rockledge. From the efforts to quell the blaze to the cleaning process, water is involved one way or another. Most of this water ends up soaking into the structure, so walls, floors, ceilings and any other part of the structure made from porous materials so proper drying is necessary. Taking this step helps prevent moisture problems like rotting, warping and microbial growth. Our SERVPRO technicians help extract any standing water from the building immediately restoration starts. We also dry the structure thoroughly after finishing the cleanup process.
Depending on how intense the fire is, it might affect the supportive parts of the structure. Assessing the level of damage on frames helps determine the next step. In most cases though, the damage is restricted to charring or heat searing fixtures such as cabinets, doors among others. In such cases, we have to remove the affected materials and replace them with new ones or refinish the affected surfaces.
Do you know that it is possible to ruin the structure in the effort to mitigate the effects of a fire? Depending on the method used when cleaning smoke deposits from surfaces, it is possible to create more problems. For example, aggressive wet cleaning on textured ceilings might dissolve the finish. When our SERVPRO technicians clean your structure, we use different approaches including specialized techniques such as peroxide active cleaning. Doing this helps remove deposits without harming the finishing of the affected surfaces.
