When Your Grand Junction Home Suffers Fire Damage You Need Help From Our Experts
Get Professional Help Restoring Fire Damage Throughout The Grand Junction Area
Testing after fire damage occurs in your Grand Junction home helps restoration professionals locate smoke residues, determine if residue remains cleanable, and differentiate between pre-existing or new damages. All technicians with the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) use testing as their first action in any professional restoration.
Finding smoke residue caused by fire damage on the inside of your Grand Junction property can be a simple matter of observation. In many cases, we notice a clear difference between affected and unaffected areas. When a clear difference remains visible, your fire & smoke restoration technician (FSRT) moves on to determine how smoke affects specific items.
However, under some circumstances, smoke residue on walls and ceilings may not be evident from afar. Therefore, SERVPRO technicians use a dry, cleaning sponge on a small area to test for the presence of smoke residue. If smoke residue shows on the sponge, or there is a contrast between clean and unclean areas, smoke damage exists. The amount of contrast reveals the degree of damage and usually tells the technician which approach to take to restore the area.
SERVPRO technicians develop a method for testing early in their career, usually starting with surfaces closest to the source of the fire. A cleaning restoration technician (CRT) often tests areas with a heavy concentration of residues first, testing every different type of surface found in the affected area. Each surface type has a specific cleaning method assigned that provides the best possible results.
SERVPRO checks every area of the home, including those closed off during the fire. Smoke can easily penetrate closed areas, so we check behind closed doors, inside closets, drawers, and cabinets. We also test inaccessible areas whenever deemed necessary, as smoke and moisture can easily penetrate wall cavities, or under cabinets.
