SERVPRO Performs House Fire Cleanup to Restore Pre-Loss Conditions

The soiling of various materials is typical in the aftermath of a fire and is characterized chiefly by sooty or stained surfaces. Restoration of such surfaces requires cleaning. However, it differs from the regular cleaning that you perform around your house every day.

Cleaning during fire restoration in Lake Nona properties involves removing residues from the exterior and interior surfaces of the structure and its contents. The distinction between contents and structural items is essential because we can move contents for offsite cleaning while structural materials can only be cleaned where they stand. When done professionally by SERVPRO, restorative cleaning takes care of many issues.

Typical fire-related problems that you do not have to worry about after such cleaning include:

  • Strong smoke odors
  • Blistering or charring
  • Airborne particles

Smoke movement is uninhibited since convection currents drive it, leaving deposits in many house sections, including inside closets, wall cavities, and other hard-to-reach areas. Therefore, restorative cleaning may involve the disassembly of various fixtures. Fire Restoration Technicians from SERVPRO are trained on how to manage such deconstruction safely. We also rebuild and refinish the targeted areas.

Smoke constitutes different materials, including solid particles, aerosols, gases, and suspended particles. A significant percentage of these materials end up embedded in various materials resulting in varying cleaning difficulties. One way SERVPRO eases the process is by using specially formulated cleaning products.

The most commonly used products include:

  • General surface cleaners with low pH
  • Heavy-Duty cleaners which are highly alkaline
  • Glass cleaners which combine solvents and cleaning agents
  • Liquid crème cleaners that contain mild abrasives

SERVPRO of South Orange County handles fire restoration tasks professionally, eliminating all traces of the loss, “Like it never even happened.” Call us at (407) 226-2621.
