Fire Damage Cleanup in Your Dayton Home

4/4/2018 (Permalink)

It is important to keep lighters and matches out of the reach of children to prevent fire damage to your home.

SERVPRO Responds Quickly to Restore Your Home after Fire Damage

Children are naturally curious, and they can sometimes cause a fire in Dayton because of this curiosity. Wanting to know what would happen if something was set on fire can create a big problem for your home and family. Keeping any lighters or matches out of reach of children is the best thing to do to avoid curiosity turning into a disaster. Smoke alarms in your child’s room are also good, plus practice a home escape plan with your family in case of fire. Teach children how dangerous fire can be and how quickly it spreads.

If your child has caused a fire in your Dayton home, the fire damage and the entire experience can be quite traumatic for everyone. At SERVPRO, we understand all of this and want to help you restore your home for you as quickly as possible. We have all the training and equipment needed to do so and take care of everything so you can focus on your family during this time.

When the fire took place in a child’s bedroom, various structural components need to be attended to during the restoration process. Usually, lighting fixtures are cleaned while we are cleaning the ceiling. We ensure the electrical power is turned off before we clean any electrical fixture. We pretest cleaning solutions to make sure they do not affect the finish on the fixture. The area behind the light fixtures is cleaned, not just around them.

When our IICRC certified techs clean windows after a fire, we not only clean the glass but also the framework and any hardware that is part of the construction of the window. To remove residues from the glass without leaving streaks, we use a low-alkaline glass cleaner. It is applied with a spray bottle, and then we squeegee off the smoke residues. Once the ammonia in the product evaporates, the remaining glass cleaner dries to a neutral pH.

When inspecting draperies, we also check the drapery rod as well as the drapery material. We ensure the rod is attached firmly to the wall and is not coming loose while we clean. If we have to take down valances, a complex mounting situation, or tie backs, we make careful notes so we can reinstall them correctly after cleaning. We may also take several pictures so you can remember how the draperies were mounted.

Drapery rods usually can be wet cleaned, using a cleaning product appropriate for the number of residues and the kind of material. Once cleaning is done, we lubricate moving rod components with a silicone spray if needed.

SERVPRO of Lafayette takes the time to thoroughly clean every component in your home in Dayton, Wyandot, or Colburn affected by the fire. Get in touch with us by dialing (765) 420-0077 as soon as possible once the fire is out so we can help you get your home back to normal.
