Fire Damage Specialists
People do not ever plan on something going wrong in their homes. House fires are an incident that everyone knows can happen, but most people do not think that it could happen to them. However, accidents can take place even here in Punta Gorda. House fires are rare, but it is good to have a plan for them just in case.
Of course, the first step is to make sure the fire is out, and everyone is safe, then the damage can be assessed. At this point, it's wise to contact SERVPRO's fire damage experts in Punta Gorda. The specialists come in and figure out what needs to be done to restore your home back to its original condition.
When a home gets burnt, a fire causes two types of damage. In parts of the home adjacent to the source, the house's structure may get burnt or charred. In other places of the structure, smoke and soot produced from the fire can cause damage to places in the house that are not right next to where the fire burned.
Areas of the home that suffer burn damage will either get treated or replaced. If the drywall did not get burned too badly, then the walls can get scrubbed and then sprayed with a special sealant paint. If the drywall got burnt badly enough, then it must be removed, and the stud must get inspected. In some cases, if the studs do not get burnt then they can get sanded down and sprayed with a special paint that seals in odors.
When a fire takes place in a home, smoke from the fire can damage other places in the home besides just the room the fire burned. Our crews at SERVPRO are skilled at smoke damage and odor restoration. Smoke damage in the home can get treated by scrubbing the soot off of areas with specialized sponges and chemicals. In some cases, an ozone machine is used to get odors out of contents inside the home, carpet, and curtains.
