Fire Damage In Your Cleburne Homes

Cleaning up after a fire loss incident can be a vital element to bringing a property back to preloss condition.

Common Cleaning Methods for Fire Damage in Cleburne Homes

Cleaning is one of the most critical stages of our SERVPRO team to make fire losses “Like it never even happened.” for Cleburne homes. There are no universal approaches that work every time for every situation, however. As part of the experience and expertise that we can offer projects, we have the training to identify the type of material damaged, the residues or debris present, and potential concerns with specific cleaning techniques that could smear or stain particular surfaces.

Many products and tools can help to achieve fire damage cleanup for Cleburne homes. Each of these can help to accomplish dozens of specific practices designed to remove residues, debris, and other potential threats from the affected area. In severe instances where our advanced cleaning techniques cannot restore damaged surfaces or contents, we can rely on our team of licensed general contractors to help with controlled demolition, content management, and debris removal.

Ceilings and walls are among the most soiled of areas after a structure fire, because the circulation of the air during the fire forces smoke and soot particles upwards. Our SERVPRO professionals have multiple techniques for addressing residues left on ceilings and walls. We determine the best approach by the type of material affected and any additional factors like paint, wallpaper, and kind of soiling.

There are primarily three approaches to removing the residues, soiling, and debris from affected ceilings and walls after a structure fire. Dry cleaning with sponges and other tools is effective against non-grease soiling on surfaces.

Dry cleaning can also get used as a precursor to wet cleaning approaches. These would be effective on painted surfaces, wood, and metal materials. Dense concentrations of dry ash or soot or even oil-based residues can get removed with wet-cleaning approaches.

Peroxide cleaning is another approach that our SERVPRO team might implement in specific circumstances. This practice is one that our cleaning technicians already utilize for removing nicotine staining from ceiling materials. Because wet cleaning might be ineffective on textured ceiling materials, peroxide active cleaning can be an effective alternative.

Cleaning up after a fire loss incident can be a vital element to bringing a property back to preloss condition. No matter how we can help, give our SERVPRO of Crowley & South Johnson County team a call today at (817) 297-8588.
