Choosing The Right Cleaning Actions After A Fire

Several factors determine the cleaning actions we employ during fire damage restoration. We understand different rooms of your structure might be having different materials which means the same building might have different types of soot residues. At the same time, the methods we use to clean fragile materials are different to what we use when cleaning items which can withstand aggressive agitation in your Dayton home.

We are going to look at the absorption and immersion techniques which our SERVPRO technicians use when addressing fire damage incidents in Dayton. If we come across items which are likely to experience additional damage when subjected to the direct application of the solvent or water-based cleaning agents, we use the absorption techniques. During this process, we apply absorptive powders on the material, and the soot residues get cleaned through absorption. We then perform vacuuming to extract the captured particles. We prefer this technique when we are dealing with porous surfaces such as carpets, draperies, bricks, and concrete.

In some cases, our SERVPRO technicians can combine solvents and the absorptive powders. If we have to do that, we first treat the soils with the cleaning agent and then apply the powders on the treated surface. Once the surface is dry, we vacuum the area. Mixing the solvents and the powders before applying to the target area is also another option.

When cleaning some items, it may be necessary to control the temperature and quantity of the cleaning agent. Our SERVPRO team achieves that by using the immersion technique. An example is an ultrasonic cleaner which cleans through the use of sound waves. Since full immersion in a cleaning agent is necessary, the process is best suited to items which are just small enough to fit in a machine or tank.
