SERVPRO Uses the Latest Techniques and Products to Mitigate the Damages from Smoke and Fire

The smoke and soot after a fire can leave the contents of your fire-damaged home in a total mess. If the residue after a fire is not promptly cleaned, it can lead to permanent damage to surfaces, including the walls, ceilings, and floors.

Luckily, here at SERVPRO, our IICRC-certified professionals employ some of the most advanced cleaning methods to restore the fire damage to your Delta home. Here are some techniques that professionals can use to clean up after a fire incident.

Dry Cleaning

If the residue is dry and non-grease-based, dry cleaning is perhaps one of the best methods to clean it up. It is usually the first step in cleaning the damage after a fire incident. Feather dusters and dusting cloths are often used in this method. The professionals can also use vacuuming to remove any loose debris from surfaces during this procedure. This helps to prevent smearing and staining.

Wet Cleaning

It is a more aggressive cleaning technique that involves water with or without detergent. SERVPRO Technicians can use this method to clean moderate to heavy residue. The method is also useful for grease-based soot and using proprietary cleaning agents.

Spray and Wipe

This technique involves the spraying of a cleaning agent and wiping it down with a piece of cloth. As the cleaning agent is sprayed in the form of missed, the restorer has more control over the amount of the cleaning agent when employing this method. Spray and wipe is an excellent method for services surfaces that cannot be saturated by a cleaning agent.

Foam Cleaning

In this method, a cleaning foam is used to clean the surfaces. The technique is most commonly used to clean upholstery and fabric that other cleaning agents can damage. Phone cleaning is best if the residue is light and the material is delicate. This is almost a moisture-free method for cleaning.

Abrasive Cleaning

This routine involves the use of an abrasive agent to clean the surfaces. It is not suitable for delicate materials. The abrasive pads can cause damage to the surfaces if not correctly used. In the case of charred attics, a soda or ice-blasting can be utilized to minimize time and mess.
