SERVPRO Fire Damage Technicians Out of Forbing Talk About Restoring Contents
Fire & Smoke Residues Require Cleaning As a Phase of Cleanup and Restoration
Whenever a fire ignites on a property in Forbing, burnt materials are not the only problems that can occur. Smoke can spread throughout a structure and cause more issues than just fire damage. Smoke consists of particles that did not wholly combust during the blaze. When these partially burned particles hit cooler surfaces, they coat the materials with soot residues. Sometimes affected items can be easily cleaned, but often the soot is impossible to remove forcing the object to be replaced during the fire damage restoration process.
Soot created by smoke can cause problems with both structural materials and your possessions. In many cases, during a fire damage project in Forbing, we remove contents from the affected areas to clean and treat them. Restoring your building materials and personal items separate from each other helps prevent secondary problems as a result of the restoration procedures. It is also easier to remove soot from your contents once our SERVPRO technicians move them to a clean and disinfected location.
If items inside your home get negatively affected during the fire, then they need to be cleaned, deodorized, and restored. When our SERVPRO technicians remove your contents for cleaning, we follow some general steps. First, we remove the boxes of your dirty possessions from their storage location to our cleaning area. We then unpack each box comparing the items in the box to the inventory list to ensure accuracy. Then, we clean each object using a standard set of procedures. Ultrasonic cleaning may be employed for specific possessions.
As each item is being cleaned, we perform additional deodorizing such as implementing an ozone machine or thermal fogging as required to eliminate foul odors to the structure. Once all of the elements are both cleaned and deodorized, we pack them back up in new with fresh packaging paper and update our inventory sheets. Lastly, we move the boxes filled with clean items to our clean storage warehouse until we schedule the time to bring them back to your home. "Like it never even happened."
If you ever think your contents require soot cleaning after even a small fire starts inside your home, call SERVPRO of South Shreveport at (318) 865-4655 seven days a week.
