When Does a Fire In Your Tampa Home Requires Kitchen Remodeling?
SERVPRO Works Hard to Salvage Fire Damaged Materials and Belongings
The recent fire in your Tampa home likely left its mark in several different ways. While professional restoration services can combat the foul odor and aesthetic damages in a multitude of ways, what happens when the damage is too severe to get restored at all? This circumstance is the case for many kitchen fires that affect homes. While the blaze itself might stay contained within this specific area of your house, the damage that occurred while extinguishing efforts were underway is too considerable to clean and restore.
While it could be simple for you to say that your kitchen requires remodeling after a fire damaging occurance in your Tampa home, the process of actually getting to that point is not always so streamlined. There are several steps in between the damage from the fire and renovations and remodeling. Fortunately for you, our experienced SERVPRO professionals can help you through every part of this process to help you repair, restore, and ultimately remodel your home’s kitchen. We can partner with general contractors to make your space better than new.
From the moment that our technicians arrive at your home following the fire, our initial assessment of the damage helps to determine what can get restored with our expertise and equipment. You might find that your kitchen area, where the bulk of the fire occurred, is not a complete loss. This process also gives our SERVPRO team a starting point for cleanup and restoration, as we work to preserve and salvage any part of your kitchen that is not irreparably damaged.
The restoration process combines a lot of the state of the art equipment that we have at our disposal to clean up the smoke/soot damage, to deodorize the area of the noxious scent left behind after the blaze, and also to address additional concerns like water damage from extinguishment. Once these processes are underway, our experienced professionals can quickly determine what materials, appliances and structural components of the room cannot get salvaged with our efforts. The final decision is yours and your insurance adjuster if this is applicable.
In these circumstances, our team utilizes their training in controlled demolition to carefully remove irreparably damaged materials found in flooring, ceilings, walls, cabinetry, or contents of the room for a replacement. This process is intricate and concise, ensuring that areas that can successfully get restored get left intact, and only the pressing concerns get removed.
Sometimes a kitchen fire in your home requires remodeling to reverse the fire damage successfully. If you are facing severe damage to this or any area of your home following a fire, contact SERVPRO of West Tampa. You can reach our emergency response team anytime by calling (813) 855-0888.
