Charred Structures Plus Smoke and Soot Stains Damage a Miramar Beach Home after a Fire

Burning is only one way homes in the Miramar Beach area become damaged during a fire. Other things happen during a blaze that add to the ruination of a dwelling. SERVPRO can help get everything cleaned up and made “Like it never even happened” again.

Restoring fire damage in your Miramar Beach house so your family can move back in means mitigating the damage from fire, smoke, soot, and water – with these last three capable of leaving stains or worse on otherwise undamaged surfaces.

As the fire inside your home burns, smoke travels to all corners of your home, and while the majority of the smoke follows the path of least resistance, smoke also fills every corner and area in your home. As it travels, this smoke adheres to heated walls, especially above windows and doors, as well as around any ventilation holes made by the fire department.

Without quick cleaning away of the soot particles stuck to these areas, staining becomes permanent. Repainting requires scraping away of the paint or heavy application of sealers and primers. We use cleaning agents that remove the soot and leaves the area free of grime and eliminating the stain. The sooner we begin, the easier it is for us to achieve the results you want.

The water used by the fire department acts a lot like the smoke as soon as it turns to steam. Steam can also carry particles from burning items inside your home and once in contact with surfaces, these substances make a stain. These stains permeate deeper than those caused by smoke and may require additional work to get your home looking nice again. We need to dry these areas in addition to cleaning them. An early start can allow us enough time to save these areas from swelling, which requires the installation of new, unmarred materials.

SERVPRO's IICRC-certified employees work together in teams to ensure complete mitigation of fire damage throughout your entire home. After a fire, it is equally vital that we restore dry conditions as it is to remove burned items and remove the soot that clings to surfaces. We also pay close attention to the odors that now plague your home, and discuss with you the different methods we can use to make things smell like they should again. Our specialists are experts in turning a heavily damaged house back into the home your family knows and loves.

SERVPRO of N. Okaloosa, Walton, Holmes & Washington Counties is ready for any disaster, day or night, every day of the year. Call us at (850) 267-0746 after fire damages your Freeport, Crestview, or Seagrove home.
