Creating a Safer Environment in Lake Nona Homes After a Fire

1/5/2022 (Permalink)

Indoor air quality IAQ is a key component of fire damage restoration in the Lake Nona area of Florida

Emergency services stabilize and secure a fire-damaged Lake Nona property when restoration begins.

Fires are not uncommon for Orange County and its thousands of residents. Fire damages are among the most common callouts for our experienced restoration professionals. To account for this, we have a rapid response team that can implement needed emergency services and mitigative strategies to avoid preventable destruction.

Clearing Bulk Materials and Debris

One of the first steps in the early recovery of fire damage to Lake Nona homes is to address the heaps of collapsed, ruined materials in the house. Structure fires overwhelm installed construction materials, making the removal of charred remnants, ash, and debris critical for reducing harsh odors, airborne contaminants, and formidable soot residues.

A Focus on Safer Air Quality

Creating a safe and stable post-fire environment in a home requires our technicians to appreciate and account for airborne contaminants and hazards. Circulating carcinogenic particles like soot present an immediate and overwhelming risk to those without appropriate protective equipment. Utilizing tools like HEPA air scrubbers can trap these contaminants and make the environment safer. HEPA scrubbers help with:

  • Odors 
  • Mold spores
  • Soot particles
  • Ash

Eliminating Potentially Harmful Water

Another early mitigative action that our professionals can take is to focus on the water left behind after extinguishment. Depending on the spread and severity of the house fire, it can be expected to see many of the rooms saturated with water used to quell the blaze. Extraction and early drying solutions prevent unnecessary tear-out and reconstruction wherever possible.

There is no mistaking the violent and destructive force of fires spreading through homes and businesses of the Greater Orlando area. As leading restoration professionals, our SERVPRO of South Orange County team can help overcome the threats of fire damage as fast as possible. Give us a call today at (407) 226-2621.
