Cleaning Up Your Home In Shreveport After Fire Damage

Disasters that do not discriminate, fires in Shreveport can occur no matter the condition or age of your home. The chance that a fire could start is always present, for any number of reasons. A majority of homeowners realize this fact, and it is probably the most common fear for people when purchasing a home. When fires happen, however, few homeowners are prepared for the repercussions.

If you’ve experienced a fire and fire damage in your Shreveport home, we understand that this is a time of overwhelming emotions, including sadness, anger, and confusion. That is why at SERVPRO, a professional restoration company, we handle each case that comes to us with care.

When cleaning and restoring materials in your home which have been damaged by smoke, tour goal is to restore these materials to their condition of preloss. We use some general principles of cleaning to accomplish this task.

SERVPRO staff first locate smoke residues by carefully inspecting the area affected. We begin at the source of the fire and trace how far the smoke traveled through your home. Different kinds of smoke residues can be present in the same area of loss. We select the cleaning method which will most effectively remove the type of smoke residues present.

We also identify the affected surface types, which determines the cleaning methods and products that are all right to use. We carefully preserve the material or surface we need to clean, and some elements can be unrestorable since they cannot withstand the cleaning process.

Since smoke residues bond with surfaces they contact, we use dry and wet processes of cleaning the residue particles can release and be carried away from the surface that was affected. We can then properly dispose of the debris and waste from cleaning.

As fire damage restorers, we have to respond to a variety of challenges created when odors and smoke residues affect various materials and surfaces. We adapt basic concepts of cleaning for each situation to ensure we are successful. We have several ways to agitate surfaces, multiple products to make the chemical reactions needed, and various cleaning procedures for using dwell time and heat to remove residues. We use the complete range of restoration procedures before determining that a fire-damaged material is unrestorable.
