Fire Damage Cleanup Restored by Using Dry Cleaning Methods

Once something burns at your property in Orlando, you have a possibility of structural issues. Fire damage cleanup can come in a variety of forms. Heat can burn flammable materials inside a structure, forced with removal and replacement of your building materials and contents. Smoke coming from the blaze can also cause soils, soot residues, and intense aromas to exist.

Luckily, our experienced and trained SERVPRO team knows how to restore the various types of issues present. We know that mitigating fire damage cleanup in South Orlando can include a variety of replacing, restoring, and cleaning of your affected building materials and contents. Each fire burns in a different way, which can create a variety of types of smoke and soot residues. The various kinds of residues can adhere to each surface in your home differently.

During most restoration projects, our SERVPRO technicians utilize various methods to clean and remove all soot residues from your house. When working with hard surfaces, we can use water based-detergents and other wet cleaning methods. However, wet techniques could cause the soot to soak deeper into the material when cleaning porous surfaces, making it much more difficult to remove. Dry cleaning methods using agitation can prove useful when cleaning more porous surfaces.

Using mild agitation methods, we can remove residues that don't adhere well to surfaces. SERVPRO conducts the technique with softer tools such as feather duster or brushes. Vacuums can also be useful when removing some soot residues and using compressed air to blow off the soots.

Residues that adhere to some of your contents and building surface materials could work better in medium agitation cleaning techniques. Dry sponges are an example of a medium agitation method, and they can be useful when removing soot residues from drywall. Dusting cloths or crumbling cleaners that work like a pencil eraser can also help the cleaning process.

When mitigating smoke-related problems inside your home, it helps have the necessary tools and techniques available. For professional assistance after a fire, call SERVPRO of South Orlando at (407) 985-3200 24/7. We're Faster to Any Size Disaster.
