Fire losses can be a derailing experience for your daily life and can become a destructive force against your Lighthouse Point home. Because of the time-sensitivity of these situations, we have case managers that can work promptly with our customers to determine the best course of action to bring your residence back to its original condition. Our years of experience in fire loss recovery and accreditations through the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) as Fire & Smoke Restoration Technicians (FSRT) and Odor Control Technicians (OCT) help us to provide our customers with a confident response.
As challenging as fire damage can be for Lighthouse Point homes, few effects are as damaging and potentially dangerous as soot. These microscopic particles can cause health hazards for those exposed, and that is why our Express team takes initial steps to improve indoor air quality as emergency services and mitigation tactics begin. Circulating soot in the environment can often get reduced, or entirely removed, through the use of air scrubbers and other HEPA filtration equipment.
Circulating soot is not the only concern after a structure fire, however. Many of the upper portions of wall surfaces, ceilings, and other materials can get coated with smoke and soot residues. The residue is acidic and can mar surfaces if it goes unchallenged. Staining and erosion of surfaces cannot get restored, so our Express Emergency Services technicians focus on a fast and thorough removal of soot residues. We can begin with light and moderate agitative cleaning techniques, including vacuuming and brushing, to reduce the concentration of soot residues. More direct abrasive cleaning techniques, including media and soda blasting, can also have an immediate effect on removing soot and reducing harsh smoke odors that might exist as well.
As one of the premier restoration teams in south Florida, we can help you see your job through from start to finish. We have mitigation and cleaning technicians as well as a full division of licensed (#CGC1523615) general contractors to help rebuild and remodel after destructive structure fires. No matter how we can help, give our Express Emergency Services team a call today at (561) 513-5977.
