Fire Damage Cleanup and Restoration

fire damage cleanupFire can be mesmerizing, interesting and even beautiful. But it can be equally menacing, damaging and even deadly. Thankfully, most of the fire scenarios we see at Joe Taylor Restoration result only in the need for fire damage cleanup and restoration, not in severe injury or loss of life.

A good example of a situation that required Joe Taylor Restoration’s fire damage cleanup services is a severe case of residential fire and smoke damage that occurred in Coconut Creek, Florida.

When the homeowner began cooking that evening, she had no idea that something she did on a nightly basis would result in the total loss of her kitchen, her dining room, the floor throughout her house, a large amount of drywall, and most of the ceiling. But that is exactly what happened.

When a kitchen fire or any other type of fire gets out of control, as in the Coconut Creek case, proper fire damage cleanup is a necessity. The damage can be extensive, not only because of the fire itself, but because of the smoke and soot that affects everything from furniture to walls to light fixtures. Effective remediation includes containment of the area that was burned, removal of much of the building materials sometimes down to the foundational structure, and a thorough cleaning to rid the home of soot and ash.

Joe Taylor Restoration employed all of the above techniques in this fire damage cleanup situation. Special technology, such as HEPA filtration with charcoal filters, and Hydroxyl Generators were used to filter and  “wash” the air- ridding it of odor and other contaminates and restoring the air quality inside the structure.

Fortunately for the homeowner in this case, her home was not a total loss. However, with the removal difficulty presented by the marred flooring, fire damage cleanup and restoration took additional time, and complete recovery and repair will likely be a significant journey for her.

Fires can be enjoyable, but fire property damage can be devastating and frustrating. By employing the best and most experienced in fire damage cleanup and restoration, the situation can be considerably less overwhelming.
