Technicians Use the Appropriate Method to Clean Each Material Type

When your home has suffered fire damage, many of your possessions will need to be cleaned. SERVPRO technicians are trained in a range of methods matched to the type of material that shows signs of soot, dirt, and residue from chemicals used to fight the fire. During the cleaning and restoration process, you will see a variety of different strategies used to clean the contents of your home depending on the best way to remove fire damage from each type of item. Your technicians will share with you the reasons certain techniques are better for some items than others. We carefully assess each situation presented inside your house and proceed according to our certifications and experience.
The range of techniques used for fire damage in Citrus Heights moves from gentle to aggressive, each type selected by the degree of soiling and the characteristics of the materials affected. Light soiling and pretreating for more intensive cleaning often involves a dry cleaning with dusters, vacuums or special sponges. Surfaces that are solid yet permeable may receive a spray and wipe treatment with water or our cleansers to clean while limiting added moisture. Special circumstances call for the use of foam cleaning, often employed on absorbent materials like upholstery and bedding. If an item can be saturated without further harm, our technicians may use plain water or add in a cleaning agent to thoroughly remove heavy deposits of soot and other residues from some materials.
When an item is significantly coated with soot or a thick mixture of smoke, dirt and chemical residues we may need to use abrasive products and methods to remove the effects of the fire. Our staff is trained to use all due caution with this method as it can harm finishes, the technician achieving a balance between effective cleaning and limiting damage to your possessions. If appropriate, SERVPRO also offers immersion cleaning for objects that can handle being soaked. We also use ultrasonic tanks that combine cleaning solutions and water with the power of sound waves and heat to clean items. Special training is required to complete ultrasonic cleaning successfully, and our team will always include staff who are experienced and certified in this technique. A one-size-fits-all approach is never used when we commit to cleaning your fire damaged possessions.
