Capturing And Removing Smoke Particles During Fire Damage Restoration In Forbing

Postponing fire damage restoration after a fire occurs in your home or business can be overwhelming. The longer you take to correct the damage, the number of areas that need repairs increase - which ends up increasing the cost of the restoration work. Alerting your home insurance company and licensed restoration professionals should be your priority. We can assess the level of damage in your Forbing property and outline appropriate cleanup procedures.

When our SERVPRO technicians attend to fire damage incidents in Forbing, they have the task of finding and identifying the various types of smoke residues at the site. The tests we perform during this stage helps us to come up with the most suitable methods of capturing and removing the particles. While some of the residues loosely attach to the surfaces, some are firmly attached, and we have to use fluids and air to release and carry them away.

Dissolving and vacuuming are the most common processes that our SERVPRO team uses to capture and remove the smoke residues. If the site contains dry particles that are not firmly attached to the surfaces, then vacuuming may be our preferred method. Particles that have come into contact with moisture may be hard to remove since they bond with the surface becomes stronger and it may be necessary to use a wet cleaning process.

Our SERVPRO technicians use dissolving to weaken the bond between the particles and the surfaces. After weakening the bond, we can then suspend the residues in a cleaning product and readily flush it away. The cleaning product that we select should not react with the surface in any way so that the area does not deteriorate. Wash, rinse, and dry are the three steps that we follow when using the dissolving method. At the end of the cleaning process, our team disposes the residues as per the state and local requirements. For instance, we cannot release the waste into a septic system or gutter.
