Florida Couple Praises Restoration Specialists

Since 1972, Restoration Specialists has been provided residents in Brooksville, Gainesville, Lake City, Lecanto, and Ocala, Florida, with specialty home repair and restoration services. A select contractor for a number of insurance companies, Restoration Specialists works with insurers to restore the homes of clients, such an Ocala family who relayed their positive experience with the company.

The family’s home was damaged by Hurricanes Frances and Jeanne while they were in New Hampshire, coming to terms with the death of their adult daughter and helping their son-in-law care for their three grandchildren. When news of the hurricanes hit them, they flew to Florida where their insurer recommended Restoration Specialists to take care of the restoration of their home. They had a meeting with the company, made the appropriate arrangements, and left the construction company to do the heavy work as they went back to their family in New Hampshire.

The company restored the couple’s home by installing a new roof and insulation system, replacing the interior ceilings, redoing the paint and wallpaper, installing new floor tiles, and redoing some carpentry. The homeowners were extremely happy with the results.

Cleaning the Home After a Fire

Restoration Specialists offers disaster recovery and rebuild services to homeowners in such Florida communities as Brooksville, Gainesville, Lake City, Lecanto, Leesburg, and Ocala. Dedicated to helping clients minimize damage and restore their property effectively, Restoration Specialists provides advice for cleaning one's home after a fire.

When cleaning up after a fire, the first thing a homeowner must do is learn which techniques to use on particular surfaces. Chrome and other polished surfaces are often the easiest to address, as one can safely wash them with detergent and rinse with clean water. The homeowner can then coat them with petroleum or another polish to restore shine.

Porous surfaces are more challenging to clean. Experts often recommend sending garments for professional cleaning, though some leathers can be cleaned with a damp cloth. Once the leather has dried, saddle soap can be applied secondarily.

Homeowners can brush or vacuum small amounts of smoke particles, but heavy ash and residue can be more dangerous. One should only work with these following public health guidelines, wearing a mask, and using safe cleanup practices. Otherwise, they are best left to a professional.

Experts also advise homeowners to secure professional support for the cleaning and repair of severely damaged walls and ceilings. This is particularly important if there is a chance of water damage, as moisture can settle in insulation and lead to mold growth even after cleanup is complete. Professionals will also secure any open windows or roofs, so as to avoid the chance of water damage while repairs are ongoing.
