Removing Bathroom Exhaust Fan Fire Damage in Raleigh
SERVPRO Electrical Fire Damage Restoration
Exhaust fans are one of the fixtures many Raleigh homeowners can unintentionally overlook during their maintenance tasks. However, various changes in condition, especially without regular inspection, can leave these devices vulnerable to ignition. Excess dust can overheat the motor more quickly, for example. These fires can leave behind overwhelming amounts of soot that, when combined with moisture, can corrode metals and leave behind hard-to-remove stains.
Raleigh SERVPRO fire damage restoration covers everything from HVAC inspection and soot removal to structural repairs and deodorization. Repairs and mitigation are performed per SERVPRO standards and restoration industry guidelines set by the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC).
Electrical fire cleanup considerations for bathrooms
Electrical fires can leave extensive soot damage and structural deterioration in various hard-to-reach areas, including HVAC systems and ceiling cavities. SERVPRO techs can take the following steps to mitigate bathroom fire damage:
- Removing bathroom soot from ceiling to floor, starting with light, dry soils before moving on to heavier stains and charring
- Safely containing and disposing of debris with a combination of PPE, disposal equipment, and negative air pressure machines
- Partial duct sealing and HVAC cleanup with agitation tools ensure that airways in the home are free of soot. Sheet metal and duct board are often restorable, while flex duct needs replacement
- Performing odor control with thermal fogging, which binds with soot on a particle level to eliminate it
SERVPRO also provides water cleanup for homes that require fire suppression after ignition and takes inventory of contents affected by the disaster.
