Proper Cleaning Methods Used To Combat Fire Damage In Charleston Homes
SERVPRO Uses Professional Cleaning Methods to Fight Fire Damage in Homes in Charleston.
Having any size fire in your home can have far-reaching effects. The fire itself damages different surfaces; countertops, cabinets, flooring, carpeting, walls, or ceilings and anything else that comes in direct contact with the flames requires replacement most of the time.
But it isn't always the case, even basic cleaning efforts after fire damage incidents happen in your Charleston home can provide you with a rather significant reduction in the costs associated with a fire damage claim. Saving several assets you may have thought were lost to you forever.
At SERVPRO, our basic cleaning services used during your fire damage restoration are instrumental in providing you with quality options to help salvage many items including, structural, upholstery, and wood contents at a significant reduction in costs that would accompany full replacement.
SERVPRO technicians use several principle methods to restore many materials to a quality preloss condition after a fire occurs in your home. Our expertly trained restorers locate smoke residues by carefully inspecting the affected areas, beginning near the source of the fire and tracking smokes movement throughout the entire structure.
Next, we identify the different types of residues present and select the proper cleaning method to remove them efficiently. Determining the type of surface we're dealing with provides us with various cleaning products to use to preserve both the material and the surface itself. However, sometimes the material cannot survive the cleaning process and must be replaced.
With that in mind, SERVPRO technicians carefully use a variety of dry or wet cleaning methods to release and carry residue particles away from the affected surface safely and dispose of the residue, debris and cleaning waste in a proper manner. Four fundamental elements are used to suspend residues during removal:
Temperature - With the proper application of heat and cleaning solution selection, we can increase the speed of the chemical reactions in our cleaning products.
Agitation - By using towels, brushes, air, and water pressure or sonic vibrations in ultrasonic machines, this method dislodges residues from surfaces and helps distribute our cleaning products across each surface evenly.
Chemical - Products used to dissolve, emulsify, bleach, oxidize, or digest specific residues on different surfaces, producing chemical reactions to restore materials.
Time - As always, the longer any item or surface is exposed to various residues has an impact on the possibility of cleaning products working to produce desired effects.
However, by combining the principles and elements together, removing smoke residues and deodorizing smoke odors from the affected areas is entirely possible. Presenting you with several different types of procedures to restore items and cut any costs associated with your fire damage restoration.
