What Common Misconceptions Hamper Fire Restoration in Orlando Properties?

11/26/2021 (Permalink)

Many people think the danger is over after the fire is extinguished, but hazards still persist.

SERVPRO Ensures You Are Fully Informed About Hazards, Secondary Damage, and Other Issues

Fire can damage your property significantly, even if it burns for a few minutes leaving you with a ton of work to do or a hefty bill to foot. For most people, quickly restoring the property is ideal so that one can move on with life. While this is true, other beliefs may end up being counterproductive to the fire restoration efforts.

The issues that hamper fire restoration in Orlando properties can manifest in different ways. Some can stop the processes after you start, while others might lengthen the timeline to complete the exercise. You might need to halt the restoration due to injury or severe discomfort while carrying out some tasks. You might also take too long to complete the effort when you ignore some issues at the start of the process. Involving a professional like SERVPRO can help you avoid such outcomes since our technicians have the training and experience to avoid common mistakes.

Some common misconceptions about fire damage include the belief that:

  • The danger is over after flames are out
  • Damage stops when a fire is extinguished
  • Speedy action always helps

Since you have to access the affected areas of the house to fix fire damage, you should spare a thought for your safety. Fire creates various hazards, including leaving harmful gases, sharp objects, and unstable structural elements. If you are injured while attempting to address damages, unnecessary delays occur. Our SERVPRO teams anticipate such hazards. That is why we are equipped with various PPE, including hard hats, rubber boots, and heavy-duty gloves.

Fire damage is never static. Even after extinguishing the flames, the property continues to deteriorate. The additional damage comes from moisture and corrosive residues. Failure to address these issues early can complicate and lengthen the restoration process. Our SERVPRO technicians pre-clean soot from vulnerable materials such as stone and metal, preventing corrosion. We also set up dehumidifiers for moisture management.
