Frequently Asked Questions About Smoked and Fire

Fire can cause serious damage and make your home Inhabitable. If a fire takes place in a business, it can risk shutting down for a long period of time. In both cases, it is important to have access to an excellent fire damage restoration team. Rapid Restoration Recovery Inc. Florida has been dealing with fire damage for over a decade. If you need our help, just give us a call.

Inhalation of ash and soot is just as bad for you as smoke inhalation. When the fire has been extinguished, it is important that your home and business are cleaned and sanitized.

We like to say that soot and ash are serious biohazards. To some, that may sound exaggerated, but it is true. Ash and soot contain carcinogenic substances which cause serious health side effects.

Even a small fire can cause deposits of soot and ash in your home. You may not be able to see it, but you can almost smell it. Often, soot and ash settle in the HVAC system. When you go to switch it on, soot and ash particles are dislodged.

These particles easily find their way into the rest of your home or business. To make sure your living or working environment is healthy, they need to be removed. Rapid Restoration Recovery Inc recommends your home or business be deep cleaned after a fire.

It is not only electrical wiring or natural causes such as lighting strikes that cause fires in a home.

One of the most common reasons behind home fires is grime and dirt. Surprisingly, dust and grime build-in in ducts and air vents are behind many house fires.

Grime deposited in air vents consists of dust, hair, and grease. Given the right circumstances, it can ignite. As part of fire damage, we always recommend air vent cleaning. If the fire started there, it is obvious you need to have it done.

However, if the fire did not start in the home’s ducts or vents, you should still have them cleaned after a fire. They will be packed with soot and ash which need to be removed.

On most occasions, air vent cleaning is part of a home insurance payout after a fire.

We are not going to say you can repair all fire damage, but more than often you can.

When it comes to working in a fire-damaged home or business, we use three basic strategies – mitigation, cleaning of the structure and removal of fire damage,  and content cleaning.

Sometimes, when the building has been exposed to intense heat and fire, we may have to rebuild some areas.
