Professional Assistance From SERVPRO Can Help You Overcome Most of the Challenges Posed by Fire Damage

After a fire affects your Cutler Bay home, you must dispose of some items and restore others. The decision of whether to restore depends on the level of damage. The availability of resources is another factor that determines salvage is possible. Involving a professional team avails all the necessary resources, thus improving the outcome.

The fire restoration process for Cutler Bay properties can be broadly classified as content and structure restoration. Contents may be more difficult to deal with since most are composed of different materials with diverse physical properties. However, contents can be easily moved around the house or to a different location, unlike structural materials attached to the building. SERVPRO helps homeowners deal with these and other challenges of the restoration process. 

Other Challenges That Arise During Restoration Include:

  • Inspection and damage estimation
  • Prevention of secondary damage 
  • Overcoming safety hazards 

When planning to restore items, you need to establish the true extent of the damage they have. For instance, you need to establish whether the black residue on wooden items is charring or a heavy soot deposit. In case it is charring, you need to establish its depth, and in case it is residue, you should establish the properties, such as whether it is greasy or wet.

SERVPRO has the right resources for such tests. We use char depth gauges to check how deeply a material is burnt. Such testing helps establish whether restoration is feasible and the best method to use. For char removal, we use methods such as sanding or sodablasting to clean the item. 

SERVPRO of Cutler Bay provides the necessary help ensuring the satisfactory conclusion of fire restoration. Call us at (305) 278-8484 for assistance. We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster.
