How to Deal With Different Levels of Fire Damage in Dayton
SERVPRO Quickly Remediates Any of the Three Primary Levels of Fire Damage
Different fires lead to different levels of fire damage, and it is crucial to understand how to approach the various types of incidents when you need to salvage your contents and return your property to its preloss state. It is evident that most materials get damaged during combustion, but it is also important to note that the fire extinguishing attempts can also cause additional damage. Dayton is not an exception to fires, and if you are a resident, some of the details we are covering here can help you a great deal.
The three primary levels of fire damage in Dayton that our SERVPRO technicians attend to are minor fire damage, medium fire damage, and major fire damage. When a property experiences a minor fire damage incident, it means the smoke particles only affect specific areas of the structure. Given that the damage is light to moderate, during the restoration, we usually do wet cleaning and dry cleaning of floors, walls, ceilings and other materials. Only a few items require replacement, and it might be necessary to repaint a few areas.
In medium fire damage incidents, there are moderate smoke residues at the site, and that means our SERVPRO technicians do more wet cleaning procedures during the restoration. There is also an increase of items that need replacement and the locations that require repainting. Where necessary, we refinish the floors and inspect cabinets, drywall, and various items to determine whether it is possible to salvage them. Otherwise, a replacement may be necessary.
Under major heat damages, there is severe heat, which means much damage occurs near the fire source. There is an even distribution of smoke particles within the site and, there is the need to do a lot of structural repairs. During the restoration, our SERVPRO team may be forced to set up an alternative source of electricity, move out all restorable items to perform off-site cleaning. It might also be necessary to use multiple deodorization techniques to remove smoke odors.
