Different Cleaning Products That Help in the Restoration of Fire Damage Incidents in Jacksonville

Fire incidents soil properties in many ways, including leaving residues on solid surfaces and other types of materials, necessitating extensive cleaning. The use of professional cleaning products helps address different cleaning challenges.

General surface cleaners

The widespread nature of fire damage soiling in Jacksonville properties often means there is a need to clean different materials simultaneously. Some detergents can help clean all painted and washable surfaces without causing additional damages. A general surface cleaner has very low alkalinity with a pH around 10, which is strong enough to remove soils but protective to semi-gloss interior paint. Our SERVPRO technicians use such cleaners on ceilings, painted walls, hard surface furniture, countertops, and wet cleanable wallpapers.

Heavy-duty cleaners

Sometimes fires leave greasy soils and other hard-to-clean residues. It can be difficult to remove such soils even with aggressive agitation or other cleaning techniques. The use of heavy-duty cleaners helps overcome such difficulty. The detergents have high alkalinity and contain ammonia. Although they are highly effective, they can damage materials such as aluminum, enamel paint, chrome, or any highly polished surface because of the ammonia. Our SERVPRO technicians take different precautions when using such cleaning agents, including using them sparingly and mixing them with warm water or general surface cleaners. When cleaning carpets, we only use heavy-duty cleaners on synthetic fabrics because they cause yellowing or bleeding in natural fabrics.

Liquid crème cleaners

Restoration of fire damage can present unique cleaning challenges, including black marks, stubborn spots, rust stains, and greasy surfaces. Regular cleaning procedures might not deal with such challenges exhaustively. Liquid crème cleaners can provide the power you need to deal with such challenges because they contain mild abrasives. Our SERVPRO technicians use them to brighten, deodorize, and polish hard surfaces. We do not use them on porcelain, stainless steel, bathtubs, or other materials that can be damaged by the abrasives.

The right cleaning agents can help resolve soiling challenges that arise when restoring fire damage. Call SERVPRO of Jacksonville South at (904) 762-8066 to help address any difficulty aspect of an incident, "Like it never even happened."
