Fire damage restoration in your Naples home can be more complicated than you might expect. There are several kinds of damage needing to be addressed, plus each must be handled differently. You are looking at damage from soot, fire, smoke, and water from firefighting efforts.
Fires leave behind a lot of ash and soot. When it mixes with water, you are left with a gray-black sludge which makes cleaning difficult. Plus, it depends on the kind of materials that were burned and how hot the fire was. Dry soot can be wiped up easily. However, oily soot takes more to clean up, especially on fabrics and porous surfaces. SERVPRO technicians can determine the kind of soot which is present in your home and clean them effectively.
Fire damage is the most obvious and most straightforward to clean and restore. Many materials have visible damage or are destroyed. Some plastics, metals, and composites have damage which is hard to see and weakens them with no noticeable signs. It is important you have our experts inspect your property after a fire.
The most frustrating damage can occur from smoke damage. The odor lingers for a very long time if you do not let us treat it. Smoke seeps into surfaces in your whole property, getting into floors, walls, and furnishings in areas which weren’t even affected by the fire. We use specialized tools such as deodorizers and air movers to ensure all traces of smoke are gone. We check your ductwork and air filters as well.
