Why Professional Water & Fire Restoration Are Important, St. Augustine, Florida

There's no question floods and fires are incredibly difficult to deal with, even without handling the cleanup or water or fire restoration directly. According to professional restoration technicians at SERVPRO of Greater St. Augustine / St. Augustine Beach in Florida, in the event of fire or water damage, there are many reasons why you shouldn't try to tackle the aftermath on your own.

5 Reasons Why Professional Water & Fire Restoration Are Important

1. Supplies

Consumer-grade cleaning supplies aren't sufficient for a full water or fire restoration. For example, if you have significant water damage, what's available in-store isn't enough for proper mold remediation. Cleaning materials aren't the only aspect either; the correct equipment is usually only available to professional cleaning companies.

2. Speed

Companies like SERVPRO of Greater St. Augustine / St. Augustine Beach understand time is crucial when there's been fire or water damage. So, they work quickly and efficiently because, even if the surface appears clean enough, if corners, crevices, and other hidden areas aren't properly examined, smoke damage or mold can quickly worsen.

3. Complexity

water damageFull restorations involve many steps. Before the process of repairing the walls and installing new carpet can begin, there must first be an inspection, removal of contaminants, cleaning, and sanitizing. With so much to do, it's best to leave it up to the professionals who will work tirelessly until the job is completed.

4. Structural Integrity

If done haphazardly, cleaning and sanitizing can further compromise the structures of the building. Depending on the damage, these areas can be incredibly delicate; professional water and fire restoration technicians know how to carefully proceed to avoid further problems.

5. Health

Even for those without any respiratory issues, excess smoke residue and mold can be detrimental to your health. If left to grow, they can irritate your sinuses, eyes, and skin. Standard air filters and dehumidifiers do not suffice.
