SERVPRO Solves Many Forms of Fire Damage in Orlando Homes

After the fire, there're fire damage levels to address even in a home blaze that would qualify as a small scale. The key to lessening the secondary damage from smoke, soot, and water (used to extinguish the fire) is to begin the cleaning and restore the property as quickly as possible.

When SERVPRO arrives to remediate fire damage to South Orlando properties, our technician teams do several things at once to make the cleanup efforts go faster. We use containment when the fire is local to only a specific area in the home. Our technicians set up barriers to control the spread of odor-causing soot particles naked to the human eye. At the same time, other technicians take moisture measurements and determine the best course for drying with positioned air movers and humidifiers for fast results.

Once the affected areas are ready to dry using moisture probes, SERVPRO technicians determine smoke and soot residue that needs cleaning from surfaces and restorable objects using wet and dry sponges to remove all fire traces and odor. Our certified Odor Control Technicians (OCTs) determine how much the odor has spread throughout the home and affected building materials, fabrics, and porous items. We often use multiple methods to completely eradicate odor left behind by home fires, such as HEPA-filtered air scrubbers with charcoal filters. We also follow-up with a thermal fogging application to neutralize odors in carpeting, fabrics, and other porous items that may be holding stubborn odors from the fire. The solvent-based fog travels in the same manner as smoke and effectively overtakes and eliminates deeply seated odors.

We know cleanup needs to start as soon as possible for the best outcome from fire damage. Contact SERVPRO of South Orlando at (407) 985-3200 and talk to one of our certified technicians; we are available 24/7 to assist you.
