Restoring Items in Your West Lafayette after a Fire Damage Experience

Replacing all your fire-damaged items should not be the only option you have once you experience the unfortunate incident. Such an option is costly, and working with restoration experts is highly recommended. We are experts who use specialized techniques and equipment to clean your property and items. Below, we look at some of the processes that we use when attending to such situations in West Lafayette.  

Remember, there might be several items in your property, and the method that is suitable for a particular item may not be useful when cleaning another item. For instance, the processes we employ to clean fire damaged porous items in West Lafayette are entirely different from what we use when cleaning non-porous items. As an example, we may prefer dry cleaning techniques when we aim to remove light to medium non-grease particles from your non-porous contents. During such a process, we perform vacuuming, use dry cleaning sponges and dusting clothes or feather dusters to remove the surface dust.  

If the surfaces are full of moderate or heavy smoke particles, then our SERVPRO technicians may decide to use wet cleaning. It is an aggressive cleaning technique that involves the use of water together with a cleaning agent. In some instances, we may decide not to use a cleaning agent, but thorough saturation of the surface or item we are cleaning is necessary.  

Abrasive cleaning may be an option for surfaces that can withstand mechanical actions. To prevent such surfaces from scratching, we apply a lubricant, which is usually an appropriate cleaning agent that we place between the surface and the abrasive material. Our SERVPRO technicians may recommend a replacement of porous items such as cardboard or wood. They usually have tiny pockets of spaces which smoke and soot can permeate and make it challenging to clean.  

You can rely on SERVPRO of Lafayette to clean your commercial or residential property after a fire damage incident. We are trusted professionals who work around the clock to make it "Like it never even happened." Call (765) 420-0077 to get professional help.
