Fire Damage In Charleston Is No Match For Our Skilled Technicians
Professional Help Is Necessary When Restoring Fire Damage In Charleston
When flames engulf a property, the danger is obvious. However, the threat does not end after putting out the fire. The combustion process introduces gases and aerosols in the affected environment, and if not cleared, they might lead to health problems when inhaled. In addition to affecting the occupants, the structure also continues to deteriorate in different ways after the fire goes out. Debris and residues, some of which are acidic, can cause such deterioration. The water used to put out the fire from your Charleston property might also lead to deterioration. With the professional restoration services that we offer, it is possible to safeguard the structure and its occupants.
Some level of preparation is necessary before starting the restoration of fire damage in Charleston. It might include the separation of items based on the level of damage. Our SERVPRO technicians separate items into salvageable, unsalvageable and questionable categories which helps reduce the chances of throwing out salvageable items. With our electronic CCIS, content claim inventory service, we can even group items room by room. We also board-up the structure, which helps prevent further damages by intruders or weather elements.
The smoke produced as a fire burns causes some of the damage, so cleanup is necessary. While it is possible to wipe off some of the soot, most of the residues require further steps for proper cleaning. Our SERVPRO crew uses various approaches to clean your property. Mechanical agitation helps dislodge debris from affected areas. We also use some professional cleaning products, which work through chemical action that either dissolves or suspends the soils effectively removing them from the affected material. From our experiences handling clean up after fires, we understand the easiest ways to deal with different kinds of soiling. For example, we know that like dissolves like, so we evaluate the type of soiling before choosing a cleaning solution.
Some aspects of fires like smoke damage and bad odors spread easily even to parts of the property not reached by the flames. By working as a team, our SERVPRO crew cleans and deodorizes all affected areas.
