Fire Damage Replacement In Cutler Bay
Fire Damage Replacement
Cutler Bay missed the worst of Irma’s damage, but that does not mean our city is free from other risks. It is still storm season, and a house fire is a year-round risk for everybody.
Compared to flooding, Cutler Bay fire damage is rare, but that makes no difference to someone who watched smoke billowing out of their doors, windows, and perhaps even the roof. Although direct flame and heat damage is usually minor compared to smoke and soot residue removal, SERVPRO knows the cost to replace structural damage can be extensive.
If there is major damage to the home, our response team follows a prescribed task list that allows us to remove and replace walls and support structure in a safe, yet rapid manner to reduce costs and quickly return residents to their homes. Once we have the all-clear from the local fire marshal, we remove all damaged property from the house and perform our inspection, starting with the foundation.
A fast-burning fire often blisters and cracks the concrete surface. Our response team uses hand tools and powered grinders to remove the damaged areas and prepare them for new concrete. The surface we pour blends seamlessly with any undamaged surfaces.
Now that we have a solid floor, team members begin work on the support structure. Every SERVPRO technician is trained to install temporary support columns and jacks while others start replacing wall framing, window, and door frames, and even load-bearing walls if we determine the wood suffered too much damage or absorbed too many odors to remain in place.
Putting a home back together does not stop with installing new supports and hanging sheetrock though. Heat and smoke also destroy kitchen appliances, water heaters, and HVAC systems. Our personnel is certified with most major manufacturers to install their machines and hook them up to local utilities. As this is part of our service, it is cheaper to engage us than to set-up a separate appointment with either the manufacturer or the retailing store.
Restoring and rebuilding your home is not just a job to SERVPRO of Cutler Bay. Every house is one of our neighbors, and we work hard to maintain that attitude with every customer. If you require our services or have a question, call us today at (305) 278-8484.
