SERVPRO Expedites Fire Damage Repairs in Clearwater

It is disappointing when your Clearwater home is gutted by fire, especially if you believe you could have addressed the cause before the damage occurred. It gets worse if fire restoration takes longer than you have anticipated. One unique advantage of seeking professional assistance is getting accurate information on the expected restoration timelines.

When you know what to expect during the fire restoration of your Clearwater home, you can make alternative plans or at least adjust your outlook on the loss, especially considering that some of the tasks you may regard as minor are likely to consume significant time. Our SERVPRO crew chiefs can evaluate your property and inform you of the expected issues.

Factors influencing fire restoration timelines

  • The teardown needed
  • Level of moisture present
  • Smoke odors

Fire damage ranges from partial to complete deterioration of materials. Partial deterioration is common in structural areas like the ceiling, walls, and fixtures like cabinets. Unlike contents that are easily lifted and relocated from the property, structural materials necessitate demolition, which takes time.

Reasons for Demolition

Teardown during fire restoration removes wall and ceiling panels, electrical systems, and insulation. These materials are removed for various reasons. The boards may be heavily soiled or charred. Electrical systems such as wires are compromised by the heat which melts their insulating covers. Wall and ceiling insulation accumulates soot residues or loses its insulating properties. Our SERVPRO technicians have sufficient equipment, including circular saws for cutting and heavy-duty vacuums for removing insulation that helps expedite the demolition.

Moisture and odors are part of fire damage. Although they are less prominent than the rest of the issues, they can be tedious to address. For instance, getting rid of moisture absorbed by materials requires time-consuming evaporation. Our SERVPRO crews set up several air movers and dehumidifier units to expedite drying.

Sources of moisture during fire damage

  • Firefighting processes
  • Cleaning actions
  • Damage appliances or pipes
