In the Age of Information, SERVPRO Specializes in Fire Damage Remediation in Town Square
Fire Damage Experts In Town Center Describe Different Methods to Clean Contents
If a fire ever starts on your property in Town Center, there are three main methods professional restoration companies such as SERVPRO use to remediate issues caused by the blaze. The most expensive option is replacing items, and it only gets implemented if the fire damage has burnt objects so severely that they cannot be refinished or cleaned. In some cases, the charred materials exist only on the surface and refinishing the substances can bring them back to their preloss state. In more minor situations, objects inside your home can be restored using various cleaning procedures. Before we begin any fire damage mitigation work, we comprise a list of the objects in your home and outline whether the item needs to be replaced or if it can get refinished or cleaned.
When figuring out whether or not an item is cleanable, our SERVPRO technicians test-clean the surfaces and see which chemicals work best. When remediating fire damage in Town Center, our team can use several different methods to clean soots and soils from the various surfaces inside your building. When a fire burns it uses a variety of fuels, therefore the soot residues that remain have different chemical compositions. Every different type of soot or soil adheres differently to the various surfaces inside your home. When cleaning your contents, we utilize several different methods to return them to their preloss condition.
In some scenarios, our SERVPRO technicians can use wet cleaning methods. During wet cleaning, we apply alkaline based detergents on a rag and then rinse them off with clean water, and then dry them with a towel. For hard surface contents, we spray the detergent onto them and then wipe off the chemicals.
For easily ruined surfaces, we often use foam cleaning because it does not damage fragile surfaces. For more severe situations we can utilize abrasive cleaning methods that get applied with steel wool or other scrub pad. For some items, immersion cleaning proves to be the best. During this method, we drop your contents into detergents and then rinse them off. If you ever need help restoring your possessions after a fire, call SERVPRO of Jacksonville South at (904) 762-8066 24/7.
