Professional Cleaning Techniques Used In Metairie Fire Damage Restoration
No two fires are alike, and each requires a range of techniques employed by our certified technicians.
One of the most useful skills restoration experts bring after fire damages your Metairie home is the ability to match the appropriate strategy, tools, and products to the specific issues a fire inflicted upon your house. Proceeding with technicians trained to Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration Certification (IICRC) standards is crucial. We offer the crews and the equipment necessary to resolve your fire damage emergency successfully.
Depending on the types of materials combusted, the fire damage to your Metairie home may need several different approaches to restoration. Materials that burn quickly and hot can combust almost wholly, deposit lighter ash and soot. Examples might be paper and dry wood structural components. Our crew takes care of this type of loose debris with HEPA filtered vacuums, dry sponges, and brushing.
If the fire involved damp materials or plastics and fabrics it probably burned more slowly, at a lower temperature, and less thoroughly. The aftermath when these items char tends toward dark, odiferous smoke full of unburned particles. These bits deposit in thick coatings that adhere to surfaces. SERVPRO employees use spray and wipe techniques, choosing cleansers that loosen the soot so that cloths follow to remove the coatings.
Food fires deposit a thin but tenacious layer of almost lacquer-like debris on surfaces. It also contributes to a persistent odor that must also be eliminated as the SERVPRO team manages the scene. We employ abrasive cleaners teamed with abrasive tools to break down the coating. Our team is familiar with how to remove the soot without damaging surfaces, a delicate balance learned during our continuing training.
Some items like intricately detailed glassware or window blinds can require immersion cleaning to get all of the soot off and out of crevices. SERVPRO production employees often inventory and remove these difficult to clean items to an off-property site where we use large tubs, specialized cleaners and methods, and even advanced technology like ultrasonic cleaning that utilizes the power of sound waves to dislodge the dirt and smoky residues.
