Our Fire Damage Technicians Explain Our Various Cleaning Methods We Will Use In Your Arizona City Home
Different Methods Of Cleaning Fire Damage In Arizona City Homes
When there is a fire in your home on a small scale, many homeowners clean the damage themselves and move forward getting life back to normal. This can be a mistake because if smoke residues and soot are not correctly addressed, they can spread throughout the home bringing unpleasant odors with them.
Fire damage in an Arizona City home is a task the technicians at SERVPRO have the experience and equipment to handle whether it is a corner in a room or an entire property. The cleanup starts during the initial phone call, and when our locally-based team arrives, we bring everything we need in our stocked service vans and get to work.
When the fire is localized to a particular area, we concentrate on containing the smoke residue and soot particles and stop them from spreading through foot traffic. Thick plastic barriers are placed over doorways and vents. Sheetrock and building materials that cannot be restored through cleaning are removed. Then we work on identifying the items that can be restored for the homeowner.
The goal of SERVPRO technicians is always to restore rather than replace, and we stay current on the latest advances in the restorative sciences so we can help property owners save more of their contents and home after a fire loss. Cleaning involves more than merely using sponges and wiping. Depending on the type of surface, residue or stain, we have a specialized method to remediate different materials and surfaces. Chemical cleaning is used when our technicians are tackling a residue or stain trapped in upholstery or carpeting. Different chemical combinations are used to specifically address different types of material to be lifted out of fibers.
Some sticky residues are cleaned using a method called lubrication. The technicians coat the residue and make it "slippery" so it releases its grip on fibers and can be wiped with a sponge or vacuumed away. Thick layers of dirt or residue dried and trapped upholstery can be lifted out using mechanical action. It works much like the agitator in a washing machine and breaks up and releases the dried material.
Attention to detail and expertise with restoration methods is what makes SERVPRO of Casa Grande at (520) 421-1894 the choice for turning around any size fire damage in your home. We are available 24/7 for your convenience.
