Latest video update from a Fire Damage project SERVPRO of Greater St. Augustine/St. Augustine Beach is currently working on.
This short video illustrates the following steps in Fire Damage removal process:
1. Wipe down. All soot accumulated on walls, ceilings and other surfaces must be removed. Typically that is one of the first steps in Fire Damage remediation, following debris removal of course. Once the wipe down is complete, smoke damage will be reevaluated and the structure may be repainted.
2. This is an older structure, like most of St. Augustine buildings around down town. In the 50's and 60's it was common to use plaster and many other materials and steps that no longer performed in the trade. One example of that in the video is the textured ceilings. It would be too much of a job to remove all that plaster and since plaster is a solid material we are able to use some of SERVPRO's patented chemicals to remove smoke and fire damage from this St. Augustine home.
3. It may take multiple applications to get the heavy soot off around the duct registers.
