Fire damages are dramatic, but the smoke damage that follows is more insidious. Smoke lingers behind, clinging to your property's walls, vents, and other surfaces long after the flames have been extinguished. Lingering smoke will continue to damage the property if it isn't taken care of. Fortunately, the professional team at GCS Restoration is always ready to jump to action with their expertise and state-of-the-art equipment to offer you local smoke damage restoration services in Valrico, FL. Contact us at (813) 945-4730 as soon as possible so our crew can get to work to help you avoid further damage and lingering odors and help to bring your property back to pre-loss condition quickly and efficiently.
The flames are extinguished, and your home is being restored, but sometimes after a fire, it seems like the smell of smoke will never go away. This is because smoke particles are able to infiltrate every nook, cranny, and crevice in your home. These particles hide everywhere, including your ductwork and any porous material in the home, like furniture, flooring, and walls. At GCS Restoration, our professional odor remediation experts are always ready to help. We use specialized equipment and techniques to effectively extract the smoke odor from your home as part of our restoration process. Call us at (813) 945-4730 for all of your smoke odor removal needs in Valrico, FL.

It's never a quick fix, though we've gathered together a multi-discipline team of contractors and technicians to work in tandem to complete the work as soon as possible. From structural repairs to sand/soda-blasting to odor removal to contents cleaning, our fire damage restoration crew begins as soon as the project scope is determined, and we don't stop until the job is done and both you and the insurance company are satisfied with the results.
Most often, yes. You'll need to check your specific policy for the full scope of coverage, but generally, it's covered if a flame caused the damage. Your best bet is to hire a professional restoration company such as [company,data=name] to help you through the claims process. We know how to avoid some common missteps when it comes to making sure the entire loss is documented and covered. Many homeowners and insurance companies forget, for instance, to consider that your HVAC system will need to be cleaned of soot, and, since fires are extinguished using water, many areas of your home may need to be restored due to water damage even if they weren't directly affected by the fire.
Depending on the extent or location of the fire damage, some homeowners can move back in a few days or longer. The fire department will usually turn off electricity and gas to the property right away, and that won't be restored until a building inspector says that it's safe to turn those utilities back on. If you experienced significant smoke damage and the home's occupants include elderly persons, young children, or those with chronic health conditions, it may be wise to stay until the smoke cleanup is complete. Contracting with a company experienced in fire damage restoration can often get you back home sooner, because they'll have the resources to hire and manage the many tradespeople who will need to work together to make the home liveable again.
DIY soot removal is not recommended. Commercially available products can actually cause permanent damage to surfaces. Soot itself is primarily oil-based, but that residue also contains toxic, possibly biohazard contaminants.
Smoke damage is rarely limited to one area of the house, and it leaves behind a residue that can hide in crevices and out-of-reach areas, and a simple "airing out" may not be sufficient. We recommend consulting with a smoke damage technician who can help you troubleshoot the next steps.
