Why Do You Need Professional Fire Damage Restoration After a Fire to Your Littleton Property?
Smoke and Soot Particles and Odors Need SERVPRO Restoration Methodologies for Comprehensive Cleanups
Fire damage to your home can be a traumatic experience for any homeowner. Apart from the damage due to the heat, fire can cause significant damage to your property and belongings due to smoke and soot. The smoke particles can coat walls, ceilings, and almost any surface and cause permanent damage if not cleaned quickly and efficiently.
The particles in the smoke contain unburned carbon that can be very difficult to remove after a fire to your Littleton property. Furthermore, not all soot particles are alike, and it takes a multi-step process to eliminate them. It is a job for the professionals who have years of training and expertise in fire damage restoration. Here are some of how professionals get rid of the smoke and soot damage from your property.
Strategies are developed based on the type of soot residue
The plan to restore the smoke damage depends on the type of smoke residue. Here at SERVPRO our team of expert restorers evaluates the type of smoke residue and prepares a plan accordingly. The dry smoke residue is easier to clean compared to the wet smoke residue. As dry smoke residue does not stain the surface as intensely as wet smoke residue, it is easier to remove by wiping. Our IICRC certifies technicians use less aggressive methods to clean such films.
Wet smoke residues, on the other hand, are significantly more difficult to clean. SERVPRO technicians use a variety of methods such as wet-cleaning, foam-cleaning and abrasive cleaning to mitigate the damage caused by wet smoke residues. The heat streams during a fire can drive these smoke particulates deep into cracks and crevices and porous surfaces further exacerbating the cleanup difficulty.
Smoke and soot pose another challenge during the restoration process- the odor. If proper precautions are not used during the restoration process, the odor can linger on long after the fire. SERVPRO technicians use equipment such as Ultra Low Volume (ULV) foggers, heat foggers, deodorizing beads and other methods to combat the odors after a fire. Our technicians have years of experience in managing odors after fires of all sizes. We get your home smelling like home again in no time.
