Fire Cleanup in Reading
Fire Cleanup in Your Reading Home
Smoke and soot residue from a fire, no matter how small, have a way of getting into even the smallest crevasses within your home. Even after a kitchen fire, odors can permeate throughout the structure, impacting your entire home. The cleaning process for fires can be a complicated endeavor unless you have professional assistance.
If you need fire cleanup for your Reading home, the certified professionals at SERVPRO are ready to assist you at any time. We’re Faster to Any Size Disaster. Each fire and each cleanup is different, requiring the restorers to formulate a plan for your specific situation. Technicians locate, identify, capture, and remove residues from within your home.
There are four elements in effectively cleaning up residues following a fire. All four elements work together to attack smoke residues within the structure.
Temperature: Heating the cleaning solution increases the speed of chemical reactions allowing for faster cleanup.
Agitation: Using brushes, towels, air, vibrations, and even water to dislodge the lingering residues to distribute cleaning products evenly.
Chemical action: Using the correct cleaning products for the desired cleaning goal ensures the most effective residue removal. In some cases, restorers wish to emulsify, dissolve, or bleach the surfaces within the home and require different chemicals depending on the unique situation. This also includes fogging the home with a smoke-like chemical substance to attack the smoke residue at the micron level.
Time: Allowing for the correct amount of time for cleaning and deodorization is a crucial component. The time needed can vary significantly depending on the chemicals used and the type of residue. Too much time fogging, for example, can be detrimental to the restoration efforts. Too little time can leave lingering residue and odors.
SERVPRO technicians combine these elements to customize cleanup from your fire. Sometimes residues and odors can be challenging to remove, but restorers use the elements above to apply to each unique situation, ensuring the thorough removal of odors and residues.
