What Damage Can a Fire Cause?
Fires can be both destructive and devastating to Fort Myers homes and businesses. Properties that have experienced a fire can suffer not just direct damage from flames, but also from smoke and soot as a result of the fire. This damage can occur even in small fires and can cause extensive repairs and restoration to be needed.
What Type of Damage Does Fire Cause?
- Structural Damage - This type of damage occurs when the fire burns through the structural components of the building, such as the walls, ceilings, and floors. The intense heat can cause structural weakening – this damage can make a building unsafe to enter or occupy.
- Smoke and Soot Damage - Smoke from a fire can penetrate into every nook and cranny of a building, causing severe damage. Smoke can also cause respiratory problems for people who are exposed to it.
- Water Damage - Firefighters often use large amounts of water to extinguish the fire, which can saturate the property and its contents. This type of damage can cause mold and mildew to grow on surfaces, as well as warping and swelling of wood materials.
- Heat damage – This type of damage can affect anything that was directly exposed to the flames of the fire. This can cause warping and melting of building materials and personal property as well as damage to property that may become permanently discolored or smoke-damaged from the amount of heat generated during the fire.
- Electrical Damage - This can occur when the fire melts or damages electrical wiring. This type of damage can create hazards such as live wires or sparks, which can pose a serious risk of injury.
The experienced Fort Myers fire restoration pros at Dryzone Inc can handle all your restoration needs following a fire, regardless of the type of damage experienced.
What Does Smoke Damage Look Like?
Smoke damage can lead to lasting effects long after the fire has been extinguished. The tell-tale signs of smoke damage in your home or business can include discoloration of walls and fabric, residue on surfaces, a smoky odor that may linger long after the fire is down, and possibly furniture, cabinets or other items with soot on them or melted plastic. Beyond the visual evidence of smoke damage, it can also create respiratory issues due to its impact on air quality. It's important to have our qualified Fort Myers smoke restoration team assess your property for any smoke damage that may have occurred if you have experienced a fire in your property.
The Effects of Soot Damage
Structures and contents not directly damaged by the fire are typically coated with a fine black residue from the soot of the fire. Often making matters worse is when soot gets in the air conditioning and air ducts sweeping it into additional areas. Mix that soot with the humidity that results from the effect of water on flames, and you have an acidic residue that will continue to cause further damage the longer it is allowed to remain. That's where Dryzone Inc comes in. Our experienced team can assist with all your soot restoration and cleanup needs throughout Fort Myers to help remove any residue that has been left behind.

Our Expert Technicians Answer YOur Questions
What are the benefits of using my own restoration provider?When you hire us, we work for you and work to get your property repaired on time and with the highest quality. We’re also a one-stop shop, meaning not only can we help dry out and remove mold, but we’ll also repair it to its pre-loss condition. Using the insurance company’s preferred vendor may not offer the most experienced technicians and you’re not quite sure who you’ll have in your home, also in many instances, you’ll have to hire a separate general contractor or repair company to build back what the restoration company tore down. All our technicians are WRT certified (Water Restoration Technician) through the IICRC and all technicians are also fully pre-qualified and background checked. We’re fully insured and bonded and are ready to help you get your life back to the way it was before your loss. Call us today at (239) 360-5207 and let us help you get back on track.
Do I have to use the restoration company my insurance tells me?Absolutely not. Most times insurance companies act in their own interest and will offer you the cheapest restoration company around. Even though they may be certified, they’re working for the insurance company. We always suggest shopping around and finding the restoration provider you trust and feel the most comfortable using. We work with all insurance carriers and can handle billing through whatever carrier you have.
How do you know if you have mold?There are several symptoms of a mold problem. Musty smells, dampness, discoloration, excessive allergies. If you notice any of these issues you may have a mold issue. We can do both a visual inspection and if need be, hire a 3rd party air quality test to ensure results are not biased.
