Fire Damage Restoration In Grand Junction Requires Controlling The Application Of Cleaning Products

Everyone knows that if an inferno ever breaks out on your Grand Junction property, the results can be quite devastating. Not only can fire damage take place very quickly once a spark inside your house ignites, but the problems created by a blaze can also take various forms. Anything the flames use as fuels can get entirely or partially consumed by the blaze. Sometimes, partially charred items can get refinished instead of being removed.

Smoke coming from burnt items can also cause you a different set of issues. During many fire damage projects in Grand Junction, our SERVPRO technicians spend much of their time removing soils and soot residues created by partially combusted particles or smoke. Once smoke contacts the cooler surfaces inside your structure, the particles harden and adhere to surfaces. Once these soils and soot residues are present on the surfaces of your contents and building materials, we can remove and clean them by utilizing a variety of techniques and chemical products.

However, sometimes certain cleaning techniques or chemicals could ruin the surfaces of items inside your house. For example, mechanical actions like agitation could strip paint from your walls. Or the chemical compositions of products used during the cleaning process could cause shiny surfaces to deteriorate. Therefore, our SERVPRO team always takes measures to control the application of cleaning products.

For instance, sometimes, materials are too fragile for methods that involve agitation. During these scenarios, our SERVPRO crew can use products that utilize absorption. Products like absorption powders remove soils and soot residues by absorbing them and pulling them off of the surface. Absorption products are often used with other cleaning agents that help break the soils away from the affected surfaces.

Surface cleaning techniques can also help keep the materials from getting ruined due to saturation. Products can get sprayed and then wiped to clean soot residues and prevent the chemical from deteriorating the item's surface. Foam cleaning can also be effective because less moisture is involved.

When restoring smoke-related issues, knowing how to control the application of the products so that the cleaning process does not ruin the item is essential. For help with cleaning soot residues, call SERVPRO of Grand Junction at (970) 241-8181 because We’re Faster to Any Size Disaster.
