Riverview, FL Fire Damage Cleanup and Restoration
Fire restoration and recovery services are not universal for every damaged home or business in Riverview. Understanding what a property needs quickly eliminate wasted efforts, resources, or time when our SERVPRO team first arrives at your home. When you consider any of the seventeen schools within the city limits, a fire in any of these institutions impacts more than just a family. Because there are many callouts for this type of restoration, we continue to expand and train those on our roster with Fire & Smoke Restoration (FSRT) or Odor Control (OCT) certifications.
Soot Removal and Surface Cleaning in Riverview
Soot remains one of the most hazardous and dangerous remnants of a recent fire, so managing these effects is critical to protect restoration professionals and occupants of the house. As a carcinogenic particle circulating in the environment after extinguishment, soot is created by the partial combustion of fuels like wood. Cleaning up after these residues and airborne particles requires several specific tools and approaches, including:
- Air scrubbers
- HEPA filtration equipment
- Solvents and detergents
- Soda blasting
- Controlled demolition
How SERVPRO Technicians in Riverview Approach Smoke Odor Removal
Deodorization is one of the final stages of fire restoration in your home. There are multiple approaches to neutralizing smoke and fire odors in the house. However, debris removal in the earliest mitigation stages can reduce concentrations and severity of harsh and noxious scents. Thermal fogging, hydroxyl generators, and ozone machines are common choices for odor elimination.

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
We are available 24 hours, 7 days a week. When you call, one of our representatives will ask a series of questions about the fire damage to your home or business. This information helps us respond immediately with all the needed equipment and resources.
Step 2: Inspection and Fire Damage Assessment
We carefully inspect and test adjoining rooms of your property to determine the extent of the fire, smoke, and soot damage. This step is crucial to developing a plan of action.
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)
If needed, we can begin the water removal process with powerful pumps and extraction units. This removes most of the water. We complete the water removal and drying process with industrial-strength dehumidifiers and air movers.
Step 5: Removal of Smoke and Soot from All Surfaces
Your property’s ceiling, walls, floors, and other surfaces will likely have smoke and soot residue. We’ll use specialized cleaning products, equipment, and techniques to properly clean your home or business.
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.
