Common Issues Restoring Fire Damage to a Charleston Kitchen
When a cooking fire gets out of control, leaving fire damage behind, there are numerous challenges to restore the kitchen to its preloss condition fully. Due to the possibility of spreading soot, fire loss should be professionally restored.
SERVPRO of Downtown Charleston technicians know any loss to a Charleston home is stressful, and fire damage to a kitchen is especially hard as it is one of the rooms in the house the entire family uses regularly.
As part of the extensive training the technicians undergo, nothing is more important than making homeowners feel at ease during the restoration process. The techs work hard to save homeowners the cost of replacing damaged items through their cleaning and preservation methods to return the home and contents to their pre-fire condition.
Cleanup of Charred Materials
Items and building materials without the potential for restoration and reuse get removed from the premises quickly. The techs photograph and enter the things on a detailed report, including photos to prove the loss, to assist the homeowner in expediting their insurance claim.
When the fire gets extinguished, water is often an issue as part of the fire loss mitigation. The techs use portable pumps to extract the water and contain the area during drying to avoid spreading soot throughout the home.
Restoration of Items
SERVPRO of Downtown Charleston techs has access to advanced cleaning solutions as well as methods to ensure damaged items have the best chance for a positive outcome from fire or smoke damage. Immersion cleaning works well on non-porous items, and the use of certain solvents releases the grip smoke residues can have on objects.
Foodstuffs Probably Have to Go
Soot particles can be smaller than the human eye can see and can travel along the grooves of screwtop containers and contaminate foods. Anything other than canned goods will most likely require disposal for possible contamination.
The final layer of fire damage mitigation involves odor neutralizing. SERVPRO of Downtown Charleston has cleaners to get rid of smoke residues and also equipment to eradicate odors at the molecular level, never to return.
