Basics of Cleaning For a Successful Fire Damage Restoration Experience in Dunkirk
SERVPRO Performs Detailed Fire Damage Cleanup Procedures in Dunkirk
Cleaning your property after a fire damage incident may appear easy, but this is not always true. Several cleaning elements should be considered for the cleaning job to be effective. At the same, we have to consider the type of surface we are cleaning when choosing the cleaning procedure to remove the smoke particles.
Our SERVPRO technicians undergo the necessary training to help them perform appropriate fire damage cleanup procedures in Dunkirk. For instance, some surfaces may require more agitation than others. When you do not have the required cleaning basics, you might damage items or surfaces that could have been easily salvaged using the right restoration techniques.
The following are the main elements that we consider when cleaning your fire-damaged property:
- The temperature of the cleaning solution
- Level of agitation
- Cleaning time
- Desired chemical action
By increasing the temperature of the cleaning solution, the molecules move faster, and the reaction between the soil and smoke particles increases. Despite that being the case, there is a temperature limit where each cleaning product is effective and safe. Our SERVPRO technicians always perform pretests and observe the label directions.
We may introduce agitation to break the bond between the smoke particles and the surface we are cleaning. Agitation can be introduced through sandblasting, wiping, water pressure, scrubbing, and rotating brushes. We choose the agitation procedures selectively since one can be effective on a certain surface and fail to work on another.
Cleaning solutions can be acidic or alkaline in nature, and when used, they initiate different chemical actions. The goal is to dissolve the soil and make wiping or washing from affected surfaces or items easy. We are always keen on their dwell time to ensure the needed chemical actions and dissolving happens.
