How Are Your Fire Damaged Contents Restored?

Restoring fire damage to your Dallas home is a job for the professionals. Successful restoration requires extensive knowledge about the damage caused by fire and years of experience. SERVPRO technicians can use multiple techniques to clean up the damage caused by smoke and soot following a fire damage incidence.
It is a technique that is best for light to medium, non-greasy damage. Feather dusters or cleaning cloths can be used during this step of cleaning. It is sometimes the first step before more thorough cleaning is attempted.
As the name implies, wet cleaning involves the use of a liquid to remove smoke and soot residue from the surfaces. This method can be employed by SERVPRO professionals if the damage is moderate to heavy. The process often involves cleaning with water with or without detergent in it.
Spray And Wipe Technique
It is a technique used to clean surfaces that can be damaged by the excess of cleaning liquid. As the name implies, technicians can use a spray bottle filled with a cleaning solution to spray the damaged area and then wipe it with a clean cloth.
The technique involves the use of a cleaning agent foam and is most useful for cleaning upholstery. This method ensures that there is minimum damage due to bleeding of dyes as the very small amount of liquid is involved.
If the smoke and soot residues are too tough to get off by wet or dry cleaning, professionals can use an abrasive surface such as a scrub. The scrub can agitate the stain-causing particles and remove them without harming the surface underneath.
SERVPRO technicians can use this technique if the material is safe to be completely immersed in a cleaning liquid. The process is ideal for Venetian blinds among other things. If the stain is too tough to remove, ultrasonic sound waves can be used to loosen it before wiping it away with a cloth.
