When Demolition is Necessary After Brandon Fire Damage
Fire Debris Cleanup Technicians in Brandon Talk About Demolition Procedures
If something ever burns on your property in Brandon, it is possible that many of your building materials and contents can get ruined, forcing them to be removed and replaced. Even during small blazes, fire debris cleanup may need to be conducted by a professional restoration company such as SERVPRO. Whenever we arrive at your house after something burns, we start by figuring out the extent of the damage. During the initial inspection, we determine what we think we can save and which items we believe have been ruined and not salvageable. Once we determine which building materials and contents got damaged and which ones we can restore, we can begin the fire debris cleanup process.
During any restoration process, we try to save as many items inside your home as possible. A significant part of any fire debris cleanup project in Brandon is cleaning and removing soot residues created by smoke. Many items inside a building that suffer from a burn are restorable from being disposed of by cleaning or refinishing procedures. However, when flames torch objects inside the home they often get burnt beyond repair.
In most cases, we remove any materials like carpet or drywall that get torched. We accomplish the demolition process by removing the ruined items and disposing of them in sealed plastic bags. If the fire affected area is only a small portion of a large room, we can contain the burnt region during the demolition process so that soot and dust from the removal procedures do not contaminate unaffected areas of your home.
If there is evidence that structural components such as your wooden studs or subfloor got charred, then they may have to be removed as well. However, if the charring is only on the surface of the wood and cannot be seen a quarter inch past the surface, then the materials can be sanded down and treated. If you ever suffer from a fire igniting on your property, call SERVPRO of Brandon / North Riverview at (813) 741-3473 any time of the day.
