Top 3 Restoration Services in South Florida

South Florida is subject to a combination of concerns with which residents have to contend on a regular basis. The climate makes the area vulnerable to the potential for tropical storms and hurricanes, wildfires and mold growth. The following are the top 3 most requested restoration services in South Florida.

Water Damage

From floods due to hurricanes or burst pipes, flooding of any kind requires prompt attention to prevent further damage. Water remediation services encompass removing the water, drying the premises, and rebuilding or restoring any affected areas. That can include removing flooring and wallboard, addressing any structural damage, remediating mold, and rebuilding and replacing damaged materials.

Fire and Smoke

When a fire occurs, a structure sustains damage from the fire, smoke, and water used to extinguish the blaze. Remediation services will remove the water, treat smoke damage, and repair destruction wrought by the fire. A remediation service also has technology that can salvage and clean many types of items that includes drapes, furnishings and electronics.

Home and business owners don’t have to experience a fire for their structures to sustain smoke damage. The smoke from wildfires will permeate buildings and severely compromise air quality. Smoke contains microscopic particles of unburned material, commonly known as soot. The particles penetrate even the smallest areas and have the power to cause allergy-like symptoms to serious health conditions.

Mold

All mold requires to flourish is a warm, damp environment. Mold is a naturally occurring fungi, but has the potential to infect homes at any time. The danger is higher after a fire or flood. Mold roots burrow into porous materials such as wallboard and simply addressing the surface infestation doesn’t kill the roots. Remediation services identify exactly what type of mold is present through laboratory analysis, puts measures in place to prevent it from spreading, removes affected materials safely, and can provide reconstruction services.

Can Carpets be Restored After Smoke and Fire Damage?

Modern technologies enable a remediation company to salvage a great many items following a fire, but carpeting typically isn’t one of them. It’s not just a matter of removing the water. Carpets that have been exposed to fire are contaminated by smoke, soot, and mold is a very real concern.

Remediation companies can remove soot, water and mold, but the problem after a fire goes deeper. Water from extinguishing the fire will soak through the carpeting and into the flooring below, which necessitate removal of the carpeting, floor boards and affected wallboard.

The tiny particles of unburned materials in smoke, known as soot, permeate even the smallest of cracks and crevices and contaminate carpets. There’s a good chance that area rugs may be saved after a fire, but not carpeting.

The odor of smoke can remain in homes and carpets for months, even after multiple cleanings, unless it’s properly remediated. Soot is a dangerous carcinogen that can aggravate allergies, exacerbate lung conditions, and cause long-term illnesses.

Adding to the problem is the potential for mold growth. The fungi occur naturally in the environment and causes little problem unless it finds a foothold in a home. The conditions after a fire provide an ideal breeding ground for mold. The fungi can begin growing and multiplying in as little as 12 hours. It sinks roots into any porous surface, including wood, wallboard and fabrics.

While homeowners will need to write off their carpets as a total loss, the services of a remediation company aren’t limited to water extraction, smoke removal and mold elimination. Immediately after the fire, a restoration company will secure the site to prevent entry by intruders or looters.

The highly trained professionals have industrial level equipment and solutions for every phase of the cleanup process. The companies can also provide rebuilding services to restore the premises and works directly with a homeowner’s insurer.

Odor Removal After a Home Fire

Fires leave a pungent odor and the smell will linger for months if not dealt with quickly and decisively. It doesn’t matter if the fire is large or small, the stench will remain. To fully appreciate the services of a restoration and remediation company, it’s important to understand the processes that take place during a fire.

Burning building materials don’t burn up completely. A fire emits smoke that carries soot. The soot is the unburned, miniscule particles too small to see with the naked eye, unless there’s a build-up. Soot is lightweight and easily dispersed throughout the home. It can infiltrate the smallest of cracks and crevices, bringing with it the unpleasant fire odor.

Soot contains toxic chemicals and carcinogens known to cause cancer. Some of those substances are arsenic, chromium and cadmium. Breathing in soot lodges those particulates into the lungs and they will be dispersed throughout the body. Soot has been linked to short and long-term effects that include respiratory illness, heart attacks and premature death.

Remediation and restoration professionals have the tools and expertise to remove odors from a wide variety of items. The company will have an on-site adjuster that will work directly with a client’s insurance company to make repairs and restore any salvageable items. The experts will inventory and pack any items that can be saved and transport them to where they’ll undergo an ozone treatment. Items will be cleaned, even electronics, to leave them smelling clean and looking great.

The company will ensure that soot is removed from the home and that floors and other affected materials are restored – or removed and replaced. All contents will be cleaned and even ductwork will be addressed. Restoration will take a little time and the company will even store belongings until it’s time to move them back into the restored home that’s free of soot and smells.

Fire Protection

Protecting Your Home from a Fire

Your home represents a considerable investment and it’s one of your most valuable assets – it just makes good sense to take measures to protect your property from fire. The leading causes of house fires that ignite from indoor threats are cooking equipment, heating systems, faulty wiring, lighting, blocked vents, and curious kids.

Fire Protection

Today’s homeowners also have to worry about outside elements that can damage or completely destroy homes that including wildfires. The following are some easy and inexpensive ways to protect your home against a fire. Some can even result in savings on your house insurance.

Smoke Alarm

One of the most effective and inexpensive methods of fire protection are smoke alarms. They’re an early warning system that can save lives. Placement will depend on the layout of the home. It’s best to have them professionally installed and maintained for optimal performance.

Fire Extinguishers

The devices are essential for putting out small fires before they become major conflagrations. They limit damage and an extra benefit is that they reduce the amount of pollution emitted by smoke when materials are burned. Check them regularly to ensure they haven’t expired.

Exit Lighting

A fire produces smoke and soot that decreases visibility. When combined with the panic that accompanies a fire, it’s easy to see why exit lighting is critical. It provides you and your family with highly visible illumination that directs them to exits, allowing them to escape. The lighting also helps people avoid injuries from stumbling over furniture and other obstacles while evacuating.

Cooking

A majority of house fires begin in the kitchen. Never leave cooking or baking endeavors unattended and that includes outdoor kitchens or grills. Keep flammable items as far from cooking as possible.

Heating Sources

Portable heaters are also a major cause of fires, along with outdoor heaters, fireplaces and bonfires. Never leave heaters or open flames unattended and keep the heat source away from flammable objects. It’s also a good idea to keep firewood at least 30 feet away from your home and clear vegetation from around the perimeter of the home that could fuel a fire.

Fire Restoration Services

The pain of reconstruction after a large, catastrophic fire isn’t easy; but, thankfully, fire damage restoration companies are prepared to help in the reconstruction process. With a trained, experienced team, much of what used to be lost can be brought back into life. When fire damage happens, it happens fast. It can spread in a variety of ways and create many different problems, from structural to aesthetic. In order to prevent future loss, and help return something to its original function and aesthetic appearance, the fire restoration process needs to be swift and thorough. That means getting all the right professionals on board.

Clean up

The first step to restoring any property damaged by fire is clean-up. Professional fire damage companies know how to properly remove the mess from your home. They will have special equipment to help get rid of black smoke and will have fire safety precautions in place to limit smoke damage to carpets, wood, or insulation. After the fire is over, they will need to evaluate the structural integrity of your building. In many cases, that means they will need to re-dry carpeting and remove mildew. Any insulation will have to be stripped down and inspected for damage.

Odor Removal

For smoke odor and black soot removal, fire restoration companies use special firefighting products to kill the bacteria and chemicals in smoke. This includes an extinguisher, which is either pumped in or placed inside the building. Deodorant is another important element for fire damage cleaning. Professional companies have powerful deodorizers with low concentrations of toxic chemicals that will neutralize odors. If you have smoke odor and black soot removal needs, contact a cleaning and restoration professional as soon as possible.

A final step in smoke restoration involves using warm water and mild soap or detergent to clean affected areas. This cleans the area and prevents dry heat and cracked paint from occurring after soot removal. Once the area is properly cleaned and dried, it is then treated with a fire retardant. This is to further prevent moisture from the surrounding air from reaching the affected areas and re-contaminating them. If you are unsure whether or not your home needs such treatment, consult your local fire department.

If smoke damage occurs in a home or other structure, contact a professional restoration service immediately for rapid and effective help. If smoke or soot damage is allowed to continue unchecked, it can cause serious structural problems that can ultimately lead to serious health problems, as well as premature death.

Candle Safety in your Home

Candles are becoming an increasingly popular method of scenting the air and eliminating odors. They’re particularly popular during holidays, but can easily ignite a fire without the proper precautions. The following tips enable individuals to safely enjoy candles in their home whether they’re being used to create ambiance or they’re providing light if the power goes out.

Burning Candles

Rule No. 1 is to never leave a candle burning unattended. There should always be at least one person in a room where the candle is burning and never leave them lit when leaving home. If everyone moves to another room, extinguish the candle. The safest way to put out a candle flame is with a candle snuffer.

The Base

Always place candles on a solid base for stability and one that’s large enough to comfortably catch any wax drippings.

Distance

Burning candles should never be placed near flammable items such as drapes, books or paper, furniture and bedding, carpets, or decorations. It only takes moments for those types of materials to ignite.

Moving Candles

You should never move a candle while it’s lit or the wax is still liquified. Bear in mind that liquified wax can take several minutes to completely cool and solidify.

Burning Limits

Candles aren’t designed to be burned down to a nub. Change them out before they burn too low. A good rule of thumb is to replace taper candles when about ½ an inch of candle length remains and two inches for pillar candles.

Spacing

It’s never a good idea to place candles too close together. Dripping wax from one can ignite another. A good safety distance is to leave at least three inches between candles.

Wicks and Drafts

Candle wicks that exhibit a high flame should be trimmed. Wait until the candle cools sufficiently. If the flame is flickering repeatedly, the candle may be in the line of an unknown draft. Extinguish the flame and when it’s safe to do so, move it to a different location.
