Focused Action Aids Fire Restoration 

Fire restoration is not a universal approach for every home. Technicians must customize solutions to the type of smoke damage present, the location of the impacted surfaces and contents, and how long these materials have been exposed to corrosive soot particles. 

Before Surface Cleaning Begins

Pre-treatment can be a compelling start to fire restoration in St. Petersburg properties. This effort removes loose debris from impacted elements to show what soot damage remains and help determine the needed approach to finish restoration. Some of the pre-cleaning options include: 

  • Dry Vacuuming
  • Brushing
  • Dusting
  • Non-Wet Wiping

Choosing Effective Cleaning Agents

Choosing the right cleaning product is vital to making the right choice for the affected material and the type of smoke damage. Testing the surface with selected cleaning products will help decide if the underlying substrate can withstand the active ingredients of the chemical agent without surface damage. 

Aiding with Mechanical Action Approaches

Mechanical action plays an essential part in the cleaning process and is likely one of the aspects with which the customer is familiar. With spills and stains, it is common to scrub cleaning solutions into the fabric or carpeting, allowing the friction and motion to reach more areas and be more efficient. Similarly, SERVPRO professionals use actions like brush scrubbing, steel wool scrubbing, and other agitation to improve the reach of applied surface cleaning products. 

Warming the Work Areas

Manipulating the temperature of the workspace and the affected materials can directly impact how effective chosen cleaning agents can be. Warmer environments have faster moving molecules, so chemical processes occur quicker. Ultimately, this means less contact between the chemical agent and the soiled surface. 

Several immediate steps can help steer your residence's fire restoration and recovery. We are rapid responders capable of getting these formative steps started in the earliest mitigation phases after the first notice of loss. Give our SERVPRO of NE St. Petersburg (727) 522-0000.
