Why You Need Our Experts After A Fire In Your Pike Road Home
Fire Cleanup Actions For Pike Road Homes
Pike Road homes can suffer from a variety of disasters. Flooding is more common than fire and can cause as much physical damage. Cleaning up after a fire, however, often requires more labor and additional skills and equipment only a professional service can provide.
Fire cleanup in a Pike Road home takes more than airing out property and scrubbing down surfaces covered in smoke and soot residues. SERVPRO specialists train to the standards of the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) to make certain we can clean and restore everything possible in a fire-damaged home.
To clean an item, our specialists have to break between the residues and other soils left behind after a fire. They use four action methods designed to clean almost any surface and material: Chemical, Lubrication, Mechanical, and Suspension and Dispersion.
We define chemical action as using one substance to alter another chemically. As an example, the residue trapped in a carpet. SERVPRO specialists use a reducing bleach solution, also called a fabric brightener, to alter the residue along with a concentrated shampoo to remove the residue and its stains. The chemical combination is especially effective on cotton and wool based carpets.
Lubrication action means our specialists make the residue or soil so ‘slippery’ that it slides from the property into the cleaning solution. The solution now holds or emulsifies the soil, making it easier to remove them both with a sponge, cloth, or vacuum.
Mechanical action means our restoration crews use agitation to break up the residues or soils. It is very effective on thick layers and for soils trapped in fabrics like upholstered furniture. Specialists use powered devices to break up large areas, but can also utilize a stiff brush on smaller spots of residues. Agitation is very effective to remove the majority of dry, non-greasy residues which can be absorbed by a property item if crew members use water or a chemical cleaner.
Suspension and dispersion happen when our specialists use a cleaning solution that dissolves the residue or soil. The broken down stain soil then mixes with the cleaning solution which holds and emulsifies it similar to how lubrication works.
With these methods, SERVPRO of Montgomery South can restore most property after a fire, unless the heat and flames physically damage it. Call our team today at (334) 284-1612 to set up an appointment.
