Cleaning Fire Residues in Your Home
SERVPRO Technicians Respond Quickly and Use the Appropriate Cleaning Methods to Remediate Fire Damage in Your Home
Fires can be a devastating and traumatic event for homeowners. In addition to the loss of property and essential documents, they must cope with a massive cleanup. You left candles burning in the living, and somehow your curtains caught fire. Cleaning fire residues such as soot and ash is a big job that requires professional experience. If there is a fire in your Hampshire County home, make a call to the professionals right away. We have the skills to safely and effectively remove smoke and soot residues from your home and furnishings.
In Easthampton, SERVPRO offers fire damage cleaning methods to return walls and ceilings and other surfaces back to their preloss condition, whenever possible. There are various cleaning methods our team can use to clean soot, smoke, and ash from your home. Techs can use dry cleaning for light-to-medium non-grease-based residue. Technicians may also use this method to pre-clean before wet cleaning. Wet Cleaning can effectively remove light-to-heavy non-grease-based soiling. Foam cleaning can remove fire residue from upholstery materials that may shrink or bleed if wet. Some items may require immersion cleaning. With this method, items are dipped in a cleaning product bath to remove soot and ash. Peroxide active cleaning is the method for cleaning acoustical ceilings and other porous and nonporous ceiling surfaces. This method is primarily for ceilings with heavy soiling.
Agitation can also be part of the fire damage cleaning process. The crew may use water or air pressure, rotating brushes, wiping, scrubbing or sand-blasting to remove residues from various surfaces. Once the residues loosen up, the team can clean or remove them from the surface.
Before the cleaning phase begins, SERVPRO technicians perform tests to determine the correct cleaning method to use. The appropriate technique effectively removes residues from the surface without causing any further damage. During structure cleaning, the team may put plastic sheets in place to seal off the areas and to prevent fire residues from migrating to other parts of the residence. To remove smoke odors, technicians may use thermal foggers and air movers to neutralize and eliminate smoke odors.
