Cleaning is one of the services that our SERVPRO team offers when attending to fire damaged
property. One of our goals is to reduce the fire damage claims. Remember, if you do not act quickly,
you might end up with expensive options such as replacing restorable items and resurfacing parts of
your structure. We are going to look at some of the principles of cleaning that we use when restoring
Starting from the location where the fire originated from, our SERVPRO technicians carefully inspect
the site. During the inspection, we identify the various kinds of residues, and this helps us to come
up with an effective cleaning method. The cleaning process we choose should remove the smoke
residues efficiently and not cause any damage to the surface.
There are four essential elements we take into consideration to suspend and remove the smoke
residues: : temperature, agitation, time and chemical action. Our SERVPRO technicians understand
that chemical reactions increase as the temperature increases and thus we are keen to select an
appropriate degree of heat that corresponds well with our cleaning solution of choice. If we want to
dislodge smoke particles and distribute cleaning product on areas, we can use agitation. In this
process, we can use sonic vibrations, water and air pressure, brushes and towels.
Digesting, changing pH, oxidizing, dissolving, bleaching and emulsifying are some of the chemical
actions we take into consideration when cleaning your property. Depending on the action we desire,
we select a proper cleaning product. Time is also critical during restoration, and it is dependent on
the type of cleaning solutions we use and residues at the site.
