Is painting required after a fire?

This photo was taken after several cleaning passes with a chemically absorbent sponge specifically made for soil removal. The sponge is designed to warm the surface through friction and draw the soil out and into the sponge.This is a necessary step towards soot removal and can be followed by wet cleaning if not painting however, sealing and painting is generally required.

Interior of a home's duct work covered in soot from a recent fire.

SERVPRO techs are trained to assist you with your duct work after a fire loss.

Inside the primary ductwork, commonly called the 'Plenum,' you can see it has been heavily affected by a fire and soot has covered the interior which is made of an insulated fiber board. With steel duct work, cleaning, sealing and applying an anti microbial is commonly successful, however, due to the porous nature of the fiber board, replacement is generally recommended.

Fire sprinkler system damaged structure after cold weather event.

A cold weather snap froze the fire sprinkler system in this local manufacturing plant, causing major water damage to about 4000 square feet of office space. After the office staff was relocated to minimize downtime, SERVPRO removed the damaged carpeting and drywall, remediated the water damage, and supervised extensive reconstruction from start to finish, returning the space to pre-damage condition - "Like it never even happened."

SERVPRO technicians are trained to dry hard to access areas.

Heavy rain water from a recent storm entered a school auditorium through the roof where repairs were being made and had not yet completed. SERVPRO used thermo technology to quickly identify where the water was trapped in the ceilings that ranged from 10 feet to 30 feet high. A trailer mounted dehumidifier was brought in to supply enough dry air that turned the auditorium into desert like conditions.

SERVPRO technicians are trained to identify barriers that prevent drying.

When considering drying materials rather than replacing the balance of time and cost are always a contributing factor. A single layer of carpeting can quickly and cheaply be dried and restored, that is unless there is a layer of vinyl hidden under the carpeting which would trap the moisture in the subfloor. This scenario would extend drying time several days if ever successful, costing unknown amounts and secondary damage would likely be the result.

SERVPRO techs are trained to investigate obvious and subtle damage.

Damage caused by water loss can be very obvious and easily discovered, it can also be subtle and only discovered after other problems have been created such as mold or rot. SERVPRO technicians are highly trained and familiar with water damage giving them what's needed to help you quickly discover all affected areas and materials before secondary damage become an issue.

SERVPRO called to a local gym and fitness center

School auditorium that was flooded with rain water

Heavy rain and rising water came in through the wall in a local school auditorium.

Being away from any flood plains it is not often that rising water poses serious concerns. However, occasionally mother nature shows her strength by dumping massive amounts of water and overwhelming our terrain and thus causing damage to our homes and community structures. SERVPRO was called to a local school where a recent storm forced rain and ground water into the auditorium.

Specialty drying in Martin, Ga.

Getting SERVPRO techs onsite quickly is vital when it comes to saving valuable materials. like this home in Martin, Ga. where our techs were able to save hardwoods by installing a sealed vacuum system coupled with a plastic drying chamber. This set up captures hot, dry air from Low grain dehumidifiers and forces it into/under the flooring. Thanks to a quick action these floors were saved.
