fire damaged home and contents Don't hesitate when fire damage affects your living space. Contact SERVPRO for remediation services which include dealing with lingering odors.

SERVPRO Technicians in St. Petersburg Use Specialized Techniques and Cleaning Products 

You may be reeling from shock after your St. Petersburg home withstands fire damage. Once you make sure your family and pets are all safe and accounted for, now it is time to assess the damage. Inevitably, your furniture, appliances, valuables, and other belongings have residue on them that require specialized cleaning. 

Is Restoring a Better Option than Replacing? 

In most cases, restoring the contents after a fire within your St. Petersburg home is a less expensive option than replacing damaged items. Whenever possible, SERVPRO fire restoration technicians clean, deodorize, and repair both the contents of your home and the structure itself. Depending on the severity of the damage and your unique situation, technicians may clean items in an off-site location. 

What Techniques Work to Remove Residue?

  • Dry cleaning:  Removes dry, non-grease based soils
  • Wet cleaning: Saturates the item to remove heavy or grease-based residues
  • Foam cleaning: Foaming agents for delicate items or upholstery that cannot handle saturation such as mattresses
  • Abrasive Cleaning: Agitates residues off of a surface
  • Immersion Cleaning: Submerses the item such as venetian blinds entirely in water containing a cleaning product  
  • Ultrasonic Cleaning: Submerses the item, agitates it and scrubs it through high-frequency sound waves and micro-imploding bubbles

What Types of Cleaning Products Do Technicians Use?  

  • For Wet Cleaning: Specially formulated SERVPRO® Orange, Orange Plus, and Green
  • For Abrasive Cleaning: Stain Scrub Crème Cleanser containing a gritty abrasive
  • Immersion Cleaning: Ultra Content Cleaner to assist in removing soils 
  • Ultrasonic Cleaning: Ultrasonic Cleaning Agent, Marantz Activator, or Morantz Miracle  Chemical all help remove soil while the machine agitates the item

For 24/7 assistance after disaster, contact SERVPRO of NE St. Petersburg at (727) 522-0000. We make it, “Like it never even happened.”
