Not many disasters can scare property owners like fires do. This is because of how a fire’s flames immediately consume anything in their way and how the soot and corrosive byproducts left behind spread and create more damage. Within 72 hours, soot and corrosive byproducts can cause permanent damage to anything they have affected. ServiceMaster Restoration of First Coast provides residential and commercial properties in Fleming Island, FL with fire and smoke damage restoration services. Our technicians work to contain corrosive materials and limit the damage they can cause, as well as fix any damaged materials.
A lot of properties contain synthetic materials that burn quickly and, when burned, release corrosive byproducts that result in additional damage. Because of this, it is essential that restoration is done right after the fire has been extinguished. Corrosive byproducts and soot keep settling in a property even after a fire has been put out. Additionally, they cause etching and tarnishing that can become permanent. By using specialized equipment and powerful chemical cleaning products, our technicians remove etching and tarnishing from upholstery, carpeting, chrome, aluminum, tile, brass, marble, porcelain, and other household surfaces.

Smoke Damage Restoration
Smoke is, for various reasons, potentially the most damaging part of a fire. This is because smoke not only spreads to areas unaffected by flames, but because its soot can cause damage even after the fire has been extinguished. In addition, smoke causes damage by leaving behind an oily residue that affects ceilings, walls, and furnishings. If smoke residue and soot damage aren’t addressed in a quick enough manner, then any affected materials risk permanent damage. With our smoke damage restoration services, we can remove soot and residue by using powerful cleaning products.
Another issue smoke presents is odor. The smoke odor is absorbed by porous building materials, making it difficult to remove such smells. To eliminate such odors, ServiceMaster Restoration of First Coast uses advanced deodorization equipment and techniques.
Fires in a property threaten the safety of anyone within the space. Knowing this, when a fire is present, immediately evacuate the property, and call your local fire department. Once the fire has been extinguished, seek professional restoration right away.
