Fire Damage Restoration In Delta Requires Using The Five Principles Of Cleaning

Structural burns take place across the country every day, which means that your Delta home could be at risk. Out of all the cases of fire damage across the United States, around 16% of them are caused unintentionally. Besides the unintentional or careless act causes, electrical systems malfunctioning also accounts for over 7% of the country's structural blazes.

Once flames ignite, they can quickly cause different types of fire damage inside your Delta residence. The smoke coming from the blaze can travel throughout your building and leave behind soils and soot residues. When mitigating smoke-related issues, some problems may require our SERVPRO technicians to remove and replace your affected contents or building materials. In minor situations, we can clean and restore many of the affected items in your home using the following five principles of cleaning.

1. Locate Smoke Residues
As soon as we arrive at your house, our SERVPRO crew attempts to locate all smoke residues present by thoroughly inspecting your structure. We start our inspection process at the source of the burn and then follow the smoke out to see how far it went.

2. Identify The Type Of Residues
By figuring out what fuels were burnt during the blaze, we can determine what types of smoke was created and what kinds of residues exist. Once we know if we are dealing with oily or water-based soot residues, we can then figure out the best cleaning method to implement.

3. Identify The Types Of Surfaces Affected
The surface of the affected contents or building materials will dictate which cleaning methods are safe to be used on the various types of surfaces.

4. Capture And Remove All Soot Residues
Since smoke residues adhere to the surfaces it contacts, cleaning can involve releasing the soots from the surface using chemical or physical actions. Once the soot particles get released, they are then removed from the affected surfaces and captured.

5. Dispose Of The Soot Residues
After all of the debris and soiled cleaning supplies are collected, our SERVPRO team disposes of them in a sealed plastic bag so that the waste does not contaminate other areas during the disposal and trash removal process.

If you ever need a professional restoration company to clean soot residues that remain after a structural fire, call SERVPRO of Montrose / Telluride at (970) 240-6970 24 hours a day. We’re Faster to Any Size Disaster.
