We Overcome All The Obstacles In Silverdale After A Fire
Special Approaches for Resolving Unique Fire Damage Challenges in Silverdale
When there is a fire incident in your property, various challenges can crop up, especially when cleaning up residues left of contents and construction materials. Hiring a professional restorer like SERVPRO to help you restore your property after fire damage is a great way to ensure any challenge is addressed.
The combustion process causes different kinds of fire damage in affected Silverdale properties. Smoke is one product of the process because the process does not consume all the materials. Smoke settles on surfaces leaving residues on all types of contents within the house. Cleaning upholstery materials can be challenging because some of the residues penetrate beyond the surface. Wet cleaning such items can remove the wastes, but it might destroy the item. Our SERVPRO technicians used specialized cleaning procedures such as foam cleaning. We apply some foam on a brush or sponge then use it to clean the material. This method is perfect for cleaning residues from box springs and mattresses.
Although soot is the common residue produced by fire damage incidents, it can also provide other products such as tar, grease, and wax. When deposited on fabrics, they can be challenging to clean off or may spread during cleaning, leaving stains. Our SERVPRO technicians use specialized cleaning agents such as volatile dry solvents to clean such materials. The solvents suspend or act as a lubricant, effectively removing the residue. Even though the solvents ease cleaning, they pose some risks too, such as removing colors or distorting the fibers, but with the advanced training, our technicians receive, we use approaches that prevent adverse outcomes.
Fires affect wood even when the combustion process does not consume it. For example, residues left on wooden surfaces alter the appearance and emit a bad odor. Unfinished wooden surfaces can be more challenging to clean because ordinary methods such as wet cleaning force residues to penetrate the surface through the pores. Our SERVPRO technicians use dry cleaning sponges to remove such residues. In case it does not work, we can clean the area with denatured alcohol.
