Determining the Right Cleaning Methods During Fire Damage Restoration in South Orlando
Cleaning Methods During Fire Damage Restoration
If you want to reduce the claim of a fire damage incident, then seeking restoration and cleaning services can help. Ending up replacing what was restorable is expensive, and that's why you need to make the right decisions as soon as you can. Cleaning is part of the work that professional restorers perform when responding to such events in South Orlando. We're going to cover some of the cleaning principles that we follow when returning your contents to their preloss condition.
When our SERVPRO team arrives at your South Orlando home to attend to fire damage, we perform a site inspection, which helps us locate the smoke particles. Usually, the inspection starts when the fire starts; then, we determine how far the residues have traveled within the building. It's a huge mistake to assume that all smoke residues all the same. A fire burns different items, which means that different smoke particles can be in the same area. Identifying the different particles helps us to come up with the most appropriate cleaning method.
Our SERVPRO team also selects a cleaning method that preserves the surface or material that has the smoke residues. Some cleaning techniques may be too aggressive to the point of making some surfaces or materials unsalvageable. At this point, we're ready to capture and remove the particles. Remember, there's an interaction of different proportions of moisture, gases, oxygen, and heat during the smoke particles' formation. These variables make it challenging to choose a defined cleaning method to fix all fire damage incidents.
To break the bond between the residues and the surface, we understand the elements of cleaning - temperature, time, chemical action, and agitation. Chemical reactions speed up as the temperature increases, so we have to settle on the right temperature - which usually depends on the item we are cleaning and the cleaning agent we are using.
