Fire & Water - Cleanup & Restoration

Dinner Gone Wrong in South Miami Needs House Fire Clean-Up from SERVPRO

This South Miami kitchen had a stove-top flash-fire that ruined a portion of the kitchen, creating the need for fire and smoke damage restoration and cleanup. SERVPRO technicians arrived at the scene, as seen in the Before Photo with charred building materials and the range hood in the floor with the need for smoke damage cleanup evident in this South Miami kitchen. 

SERVPRO Recommendations for Avoiding Fire Damage in South Miami Kitchens While Cooking  

Protein fires are among the most common types of house fire cleanup jobs in the South Miami area. SERVPRO recommends that homeowners keep a fire extinguisher within proximity, such as in a kitchen cabinet or mounted in a discreet place on a wall within the kitchen to put out fires before the fire and smoke damage occur in the South Miami kitchen. A big mistake SERVPRO techs see often happens when there is a fire on a stove-top, and the homeowner attempts to put out the fire by dumping water on the flaming pan. Upon contacting the hot oil, the water turns into vapor and rises, bringing the flames. This action causes a high heat situation that spreads fire and smoke damage rapidly and is a situation that SERVPRO techs regularly handle in South Miami.

Removal of Charred Items in South Miami Kitchen During Fire Restoration 

SERVPRO technicians removed the building materials and articles that had no prospects for fire and smoke remediation actions. Fortunately, SERVPRO techs only needed to perform controlled demolition on a limited number of kitchen articles. One cabinet by the stove-top and the overhead range had the greatest fire and smoke damage as non-salvageable fixtures. 

SERVPRO's Contents Claim Report Assists With South Miami Fire and Smoke Damage Insurance Claims

As the Before Photo shows, the fire damage restoration efforts focused on a small kitchen area; however, soot tends to spread easily.

When SERVPRO techs dispose of items or renew them through fire restoration methods, it gets documented in a report that gets provided to the South Miami residents' property owner for assistance when filing a loss claim. 

SERVPRO Finishes Up the Fire Restoration in the South Miami Kitchen

Once completed, the kitchen was ready for the needed repairs to make the fire damage in this South Miami kitchen "Like it never even happened."
