Fire Damage and its Effects.

9/1/2021 (Permalink)

A fire can lead to serious and significant property damage and any number of problems that will negatively impact your quality of life and cost you a lot of money until you get them repaired. Many people don’t realize the full extent or nature of fire damage or a large number of different services offered by SERVPRO of Santa Rosa County.  Fire damage can ruin walls, cabinets, counter tops and much more leaving them looking dilapidated and not fit to live in.

When it comes to repairing the obvious and immediate damage to your property, SERVPRO of Santa Rosa County will  prioritize damage that could lead to further damage. A good example of this might be a burned stair case that is in danger of collapsing. Likewise, if you have a hole burned in your roof or in your wall then this might risk wind and rain blowing into your property and could even leave you vulnerable to trespassers and thieves. Again, this will be a very early issue that SERVPRO of Santa Rosa County will look at.

What to do and not do after a fire.

  • Is it safe to stay in the house?
  • Electrical and "slip and fall" hazards are some of the most prevalent concerns.
  • Only do activities that are safe for you to perform.
  • Wet materials can be VERY heavy. Be careful!

What is Black Mold?

Black Mold is a name commonly used for Stachybotrys chartarum.  It is one of the most infamous mold because it can grow in houses and affect animals and individuals differently.  

Stachybotrys is known as a toxic mold because it produces toxins called mycotoxins.  SERVPRO of Santa Rosa County and our highly trained technicians can help eliminate your mold issues.  

What Does Black Mold Look Like 

Black mold is a greenish-black gelatinous mold. It is usually slimy because of a wet layer on the top. However if a toxic black mold colony's water source runs out it can appear dry and powdery.

There are several molds that look similar to toxic black mold. If you find what you think might be Stachybotrys the only way you can tell for sure is to have a mold expert look at a sample under a microscope.  SERVPRO of Santa Rosa County will perform an analysis and receive the results quickly within 24-36 hours and can begin remediation immediately!

General cleaning is done to remove ash and soot from ceiling to floor for Fire Damage. Later, when almost all other aspects of the remediation are complete, thorough carpet cleaning takes place. Thermal fogging or chemical scrubs may be utilized to combat the dirt, smoke, and soot that are caught in the recesses of the homes hard surfaces, including ceiling, walls and flooring.

Having a professional come to assist with drying and dehumidifying after water damage is a large part of mold prevention.
