SERVPRO Technicians Use Many Cleaning Methods to Effectively Clean Soot After a Fire

The fire in your home is an unsettling occurrence for you and your family. Fortunately, you and your loved ones are okay. Unfortunately, there is smoke and soot damage in the den. A lit candle is the cause of the fire. You forgot to blow it out when you left the room and minutes later the flame engulfed the curtains. We suggest calling trained professionals, like us, to clean your home correctly. If not, the smoke and soot residues may cause permanent damage to the walls, floors, and ceilings in your home.
Our skilled and IICRC certified SERVPRO fire damage team in Delta utilizes advanced cleaning techniques to restore your home. One of the methods they may use is dry cleaning if the residues are dry and non-grease based. Typically, this is the initial step we take when removing soot and grime after a fire. Our professional team cleans surfaces with cloths or sponges. In some incidences, the crew may utilize vacuums to remove fire residues.
Wet cleaning is another method we can use to remove soot from surfaces in your home. With this method, SERVPRO techs use water with or without a cleaning agent. Generally, our crew uses this method to remove moderate to heavy residues from the walls and ceilings. Foam cleaning is a method our team may implement when cleaning fire damage surfaces such as upholstered couches or chairs and fabrics like curtains or drapes.
Another SERVPRO cleaning technique we may apply is called spray and wipe. Our technicians spray a cleaning agent on the surface and wipe it with a clean cloth. The cleaning agent is spayed in the form of mist and is ideal for surfaces that cannot tolerate saturation by soaps or detergents. Abrasive cleaning is also a method we sometimes employ. It involves the use of abrasive cleaning agents and pads to remove soot from walls and other surfaces. This method is not appropriate for delicate materials, which is why our techs most often use this technique to clean charred surfaces.
If you experience a fire in your home, call SERVPRO of Montrose / Telluride at (970) 240-6970. When possible, we can restore your home to its preloss condition and make it look “Like it never even happened.”
