Between 2009 and 2011, the U.S. Fire Administration reports 740 deaths in residential fires. In many cases these fires could have been prevented by cleaning out dryer lint or even switching to flame-less candles. While not all fires can be prevent, many homes and businesses can be restored with the proper services. Captain Cleanup offers fire restoration services in the Fort Myers area, helping many home and business owners get their property back to its former glory.
Fire restoration is a process that begins once the authorities declare the property is safe. Corrosion and staining of surfaces such as walls and counters are common effects of a fire as smoke is an acidic byproduct of fire. Not only has the smoke and fire caused damage to the property but the steps taken to put out the fire too causes damage. This is why our fire restoration services focuses on heat, smoke and water damage.
The first thing you should do if your property has had a fire is call Captain Cleanup. Our professional staff with assess the situation and begin work immediately. Next you want to open all windows, allowing air to circulate out the remaining smoke. Smoke contains carcinogenic gases that can affect your health, this makes it important to relocate yourself, family and pets until the fire restoration process is completed.
You need to contact your insurance company, report the situation and make a claim. Take pictures of the damage and inventory or damaged items that need to be replaced. Clear out anything you can safely to allow for a fast and safe clean up process.
