Why Moisture Management Skills Are Needed During Fire Damage Restoration in Brandon
SERVPRO Handles Both Water & Fire Damage Restorations in Brandon Business Premises
After subduing a fire at your workshop, you have to address fire and smoke damage, among other things. Moisture damage is a common outcome when properties burn down. Moisture issues can arise from firefighting processes or during the cleanup of the soiled areas. If such moisture is not addressed, it can lead to unnecessary damages.
If SERVPRO handles fire damage restoration at your Brandon workshop, we incorporate moisture management from the start. We set up dehumidifiers on arrival at the property to regulate humidity levels in the air as we embark on other restoration tasks.
Apart from causing damages such as causing drywall to crumble or wood to swell, moisture also aggravates fire damage. Exposure of residues such as soot to moisture causes them to set. Moisture can also spread the residues from the initially affected areas, thus leading to widespread staining. Moisture also determines the cleaning method that the restoration team can use in the property. For instance, methods such as feather dusting and vacuuming cannot work if residues are soaked. Moisture management skills help when dealing with:
- Fire and smoke damage
