When it comes to fire damage cleanup in Sarasota, there are a number of techniques and methods that the professionals at Accutech Restoration use. We have been receiving quite a few phone calls and emails from people looking for advice as to how we handle fire damage cleanup in the Sarasota area, so we wanted to post an article that would collect it all in one place.
Professional Fire Damage Cleanup Methods in Sarasota
Sarasota Fire Damage Cleanup Method #1: Flooding, Water Damage and Mold Removal
One of the biggest fire damage cleanup jobs isn’t actually caused from the fire itself, it’s caused from the water used to put out the fire. We will go through and inventory everything that has sustained water damage and let you know your options as far as restoring or replacing every piece of property.
Sarasota Fire Damage Cleanup Method #2: Interior Walls Cleaning and Disinfection
Fires can devastate the interior walls of a home and some will need to be replaced. Most walls that are only damaged on the surface or stained with soot, can be cleaned and disinfected to get them looking new (AND BEING SAFE!).
Sarasota Fire Damage Cleanup Method #3: Furniture Refurbishing
Smoke and water damage to furniture can be very difficult to cleanup, but with the right tools and professional cleaning solutions (steam), we can usually save most of it. Our methods are designed to not only clean the appearance of furniture, but remove smoky odors and remove mold that may be in it.
Sarasota Fire Damage Cleanup Method #4: Laundry and Dry Cleaning
Your clothing, if stored close enough to the source of the fire, will absorb a lot of smoke, and that odor is very difficult to remove. We have professional laundry and dry cleaning experts who can get your clothes smelling fresh so you don’t have to throw them out and replace them.
Sarasota Fire Damage Cleanup Method #5: Deodorizing
Your entire house will likely smell like smoke – even after the physical appearance has been restored. A big part of the fire damage cleanup job involves getting rid of this smoky smell and making the home comfortable to sit in again. We have professional deodorizing techniques to rid your home of smoky odors quickly and completely.
Sarasota Fire Damage Cleanup Method #6: Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC)
Smoke and soot will most likely get inside of your heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems and removing it from duct work can prove a difficult task. We have specialized HVAC technicians who know exactly how to cleanup the fire damage inside of your heating and air conditioning systems and duct work.
Sarasota Fire Damage Cleanup Method #7: Kitchen and Food Safety
Kitchens are the biggest source of house fires in Sarasota, and considering this is where we prepare the food we feed our families, it’s important to make sure the fire damage is not only cleaned up, but that the area and all dishes are sanitary. Also, we have the expertise to inventory your food (from cupboards, refrigerators and freezers) and determine what is safe to eat.
Sarasota Fire Damage Cleanup Method #8: Exterior Pressure Washing
Finally, once we get the inside of your house cleaned up of fire damage, it’s important to go around the exterior walls and pressure wash any soot stained areas (around windows and vents). We also have professionals painters who can get the exterior of your home looking like new.
