The only way to restore most of the materials in the building is by rigorous evaluation, cleanup, repair, and replacement. Every fire comes with a unique type of damage. Low oxygen fires tend to leave wet, smoky residues that are harder to remove than the drier smoke residue that a high oxygen fire generates. Additionally, the water used to extinguish the fire can cause indoor humidity to rise significantly, allowing more smoke and residue to penetrate the wood in the structure.  Whichever type of fire you are dealing with; you need to contact a fire restoration company as soon as the firefighting crew departs. SERVPRO of West Tampa can provide quick and efficient fire damage restoration services for your Tampa home. We have highly skilled professionals who are certified by the IICRC, ensuring that you get back control of your home in no time.

SERVPRO of West Tampa

 SERVPRO professionals offer specialized services for getting rid of bad odors left by smoke or fire damage. We seek out the odor sources and eliminate them instead of simply covering them with a fragrance. This process involves using advanced deodorization equipment such as Thermal Foggers and Ultra Low Volume Foggers. Thermal foggers are suitable for confined spaces while ULV foggers can easily penetrate sites with odor-causing residues.  If the house contents are at risk of additional fire damage from prolonged exposure, we may recommend a move-out. Our experts are adequately trained on proper move-out procedures to prevent additional damage to your property, including efficient inventory taking. We use Contents Claim Inventory Service technology to generate comprehensive inventories for each room. Contents are grouped into questionable, salvageable, and non-salvageable items for easier settlement.  To determine the best cleaning services for the job, our technicians must first test the extent of the smoke damage. We use air and fluids to extract soils, either through vacuuming or dissolving. Vacuuming is particularly useful for removing dry particles that are loosely attached to surfaces. When they come into contact with moisture, solid particles can be difficult to clean off. Dissolving is used to remove soils and residues that are not loose particles. In this case, it is important to consider the type of surface involved to avoid damaging the material being cleaned. Some surfaces are vulnerable to water while others do not react well with solvents.Whether small or large, fire can occur unexpectedly and cause considerable property damage.  Fortunately, you have SERVPRO of West Tampa to count on for fast and efficient fire damage restoration services. In case of an emergency, contact us immediately at (813) 855-0888.
