Plantation, FL Fire Damage Cleanup and Restoration

How Destructive Can Fires Be to Plantation Properties?

Fires are among the most common restoration and mitigation callout that our SERVPRO of Ft. Lauderdale South team receives for Plantation in southern Florida. A single-family impacted by these disasters is traumatic enough, but structure fires can also destroy portions of larger structures like the University of Phoenix and the Pine Island Ridge Country Club. Our fast response can happen with our commitment to pre-stocked READY trailers, experienced professionals, and industry-leading fire restoration equipment.

Emergency Services Benefit Plantation Properties

Reacting quickly to emergencies often means employing our technicians and general contractors at the same time. Our building trade professionals can implement controlled demolition tactics to reduce the spread and severity of several hazardous post-fire conditions like soot, smoke, and odors. Temporary construction prevents secondary effects like water damage and flooding from structural breaches, which can be vital in public cultural centers like the Plantation Historical Museum or private institutions like the American Heritage School.

Fire Mitigation and Fire Damage Cleanup

Removing smoke and soot residues from surfaces and contents is a vital element to restoring a home or business after a fire loss. With so many accommodations and condominiums in the area for tourists to appreciate our proximity to the ocean, fire damage recovery efforts must occur quickly to prevent costlier damages from spreading fire loss effects. There are several fire damage cleanup strategies, including soda blasting, brushing, vacuuming, chemical solvents, and controlled demolition.

Our Fire Restoration Process

Every fire damage event is a little different and requires a unique solution, but the general process stays the same. The steps listed below illustrate our process for the “typical” fire damage emergency.

Step 1: Emergency Contact

The fire restoration process begins when you call us. Our consultant will guide you through the crisis and may ask several questions to help us better understand the type of fire damage you experienced, determining the equipment and resources needed.

Step 2: Inspection and Fire Damage Assessment

We determine the scope of the fire and smoke damage by examining the affected areas and by testing the adjoining rooms for smoke and soot damage. An accurate assessment is crucial to the planning process. 

Step 3: Immediate Board-Up and Roof-Tarp Service (if needed)

In many fire damage cases, it’s necessary to board up missing windows and walls and to place tarps on a damaged roof. This helps to maintain security and to protect against further damage. 

Step 4: Water Removal and Drying (if water damage is present)

The water removal process begins almost immediately and removes the majority of the water. We then use dehumidifiers and air movers to remove the remaining water and complete the drying process. 

Step 5: Removal of Smoke and Soot from All Surfaces

We use specialized equipment and techniques to remove smoke and soot from ceilings, walls, and other surfaces. 

Step 6: Cleaning and Sanitizing

Any restorable items will be cleaned and sanitized. We’ll use a variety of specialized cleaning techniques to restore your belongings to pre-fire condition. Our professionals will also remove smoke and other odors using advanced air scrubbing equipment and fogging devices with deodorizers.

Step 7: Restoration

Restoration is the final step—getting your home or business to its pre-fire condition. Restoration may involve minor repairs, such as replacing drywall, painting, and installing new carpet; or it may entail major repairs such as the reconstruction of various areas or rooms in a home or business.
