Fire Damage Professionals In Grand Junction Describe The Elements Of Cleaning
If a fire ever starts inside your apartment complex in Grand Junction, your building materials and contents could be at risk. Even something burning inside a unit close to yours can cause you fire damage inside your home. Once the smoke has entered your apartment unit, it is wise to call in a professional restoration company such as SERVPRO. Our team of professionals knows how to handle many different types of smoke and soot-related issues.
When first setting up a game plan to mitigate your fire damage in Grand Junction, our SERVPRO technicians use the basic principles of cleaning to figure out the best method to use. During this first process, we carefully inspect your entire building to figure out exactly where the smoke went in your unit. We then figure out what type of soot is present by assessing what the fire burned and other conditions that took place as a result of the blaze.
Next, we identify the type of surfaces that need to be cleaned. The kind of surface will negate what type of methods we decide to use. Then, we use the proper chemicals and cleaning methods to remove and capture the soot residues. Lastly, we properly dispose of the soot residues making sure that they do not spread to unaffected areas.
As a part of the cleaning process, we utilize the following four elements of cleaning when working with soot and soils created by smoke from fire damage.
Heat increases the speed of chemical reactions in cleaning products. Our SERVPRO technicians select an appropriate temperature depending on the cleaning solution and the material being cleaned.
Agitation dislodges residues from surfaces and distributes cleaning products across surfaces. We agitate surfaces by using towels, brushes, air and water pressure, and sonic vibrations in ultrasonic machines.
3. Chemical Action
Professional cleaning products work through several chemical reactions with residues and surfaces. We select the proper cleaning product depending on the action desired, such as dissolving, emulsifying, bleaching, oxidizing, changing pH, or digesting.
The amount of dwell time needed for professional cleaning and deodorization products to work varies depending on the product and the type of residues.
