Palm Harbor, FL Fire Damage Cleanup and Restoration
How Quickly Can SERVPRO Arrive After a Fire in Palm Harbor Homes?
As a preferred vendor with many area insurance companies, we are often aware of disasters before potential customers ever call. Our preparedness for emergencies can help us to mobilize more quickly when every moment counts. While all restoration companies are at the mercy of the time it takes fires to get extinguished and first responders to clear the property for entry, we can be ready to move on your house's mitigation needs at this time.
How Can SERVPRO Cleanup Soot Residues?
Soot remains one of the most hazardous and potentially ruinous effects of combustion. These carcinogenic particles can circulate throughout the property, landing on structural surfaces and contents in the house and creating a thick residue. Depending on the materials burnt, residues can be acidic and stain underlying building materials. There are several cleaning practices that we can attempt before choosing a more direct path like controlled demolition. Some of these practices included:
- Dissolving soils
- Emulsifying soils
- Soda blasting
Are Odors Able to Get Removed?
While odor removal does not occur until one of the final stages of restoration, this is still a critical process in making losses "Like it never even happened," for Palm Harbor homes and businesses. While many tools can play a part in neutralizing harsh odors after a fire, including foggers and hydroxyl generators, we also have multiple products to reduce the severity of smells until this phase, such as counteracting beads.

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
The fire restoration process begins when you call us. Our consultant will guide you through the crisis and may ask several questions to help us better understand the type of fire damage you experienced, determining the equipment and resources needed.
Step 2: Inspection and Fire Damage Assessment
We determine the scope of the fire and smoke damage by examining the affected areas and by testing the adjoining rooms for smoke and soot damage. An accurate assessment is crucial to the planning process.
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)
The water removal process begins almost immediately and removes the majority of the water. We then use dehumidifiers and air movers to remove the remaining water and complete the drying process.
Step 5: Removal of Smoke and Soot from All Surfaces
We use specialized equipment and techniques to remove smoke and soot from ceilings, walls, and other surfaces.
Step 6: Cleaning and Sanitizing
We clean and sanitize the restorable items and structures damaged by the fire. Our professionals use a variety of cleaning techniques to restore your belongings to pre-fire condition. We’re also trained to remove odors using industrial air scrubbers and fogging equipment.
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.
