Help for Fire Damage - Contents, Structure, & Soot

When a house burns, each person affected experiences several stressors on the Holmes and Rahe Stress Scale. These can add up to a significantly high score. SERVPRO understands how a traumatic event like fire damage can bring long-lasting stressors into your life. We can provide the contact information of several organizations in Seminole that provide fire-related assistance to area residents. 

We implement other ways to help reduce the overall stress felt by our customers. Our experience and knowledge can put people at ease when we explain the processes involved. Assuring our customers that this event is not permanent helps lessen the hopelessness of many people.

SERVPRO helps families cope with the fire damage their Seminole home sustained by speeding up the recovery process. We do this by working as efficiently as possible while:

  • Cleaning contents and surfaces,
  • Rebuilding weakened structures, and
  • Eliminating odors

A large percentage of the stress felt after a fire comes from the immediate and unexpected loss of multiple items used by your family. For many of these things, we can use an ultrasonic cleaning unit. Quickly coming clean, we can return such items to you and reduce the immediate need to replace these items. Wiping down the surfaces that your family is most likely to touch or come into contact with when checking on your home during the restoration process means you won’t carry a reminder of the fire with you. 

Wherever fire damage affects the structural integrity of your home, we can rebuild it. New wood can make these places stable again. Doing this requires the elimination of water beforehand.

Researchers have found that scents often trigger our memories. How burnt things smell compared to how the same items smelled before is strikingly different. Removing charring on structures and bagging up destroyed debris is the first step in eliminating heavy, pervasive odors from a house with fire damage. Each step further reduces the strength of the scents. Others include dry ice blasting, thermal fogging, using an air scrubber, and masking agents.
