SERVPRO technicians can clean up the aftermath of a fire in your Naples home

It can be shocking to view your home for the first time immediately after a fire. During the fire, one of the techniques firefighters use is to douse flaming items with water and move them to the center of the room. Each time something gets added to the pile, water is also added. Afterward, there is a pile of room contents and structural elements such as sheetrock that gets saturated in the center of the room. It may not look like the Naples home could come back from this, but with professional restoration services, the potential is there.

Are Furnishings Covered in Soot Beyond Fire Damage Restoration?

SERVPRO techs handling fire damage restoration in Naples homes, approach the cleanup carefully to ensure the best recovery methods get chosen based on the item getting cleaned and the nature of the smoke residues getting removed. When working on post-fire loss furniture, some things that weigh in on the potential for reuse include:
    •    The construction materials that make up the furniture
    •    If the piece has water damage
    •    Whether the joints of the furniture have heat damage

After testing the residue to determine if it needs a solvent-based proprietary cleaning agent that will not mar the surface to remove the smoke damage, the techs carefully clean the furniture and save the homeowner the cost of replacement.
