How to restore smoke damage after fire accident?
When fire accidents occur, they tend to be uncontrolled with an unpredictable overall damage. Sometimes, you can lose the majority of your inventory, including quite valuable items. However, even if the fire itself hasn’t left a huge damage, there’s always a threat of secondary damage caused by lingering soot, hazardous chemicals, and smoke integrated into deepest structural levels of inventory. This secondary damage is preventable in the first 48 hours, and this is the crucial period when all the methods of fire restoration should be applied. Sometimes the damage is not so huge, so you may try to eliminate and clean some residual aspects on your own. However, if you want the damage to be thoroughly restored, the best is to handle the task to the professionals. Our fire restoration company offers all kinds of services in these troubling situations, including specific services for restoration of smoke damage.
Pre-cleaning or initial cleaning
Rough superficial cleaning, dusting, and vacuuming are the initial approaches at the burnt place. All the big items have to be removed or trashed if unrepairable. Using specific equipment with vacuum, our technicians clean major surfaces, such as floors, walls, windows and others. After this dry cleaning, we conduct the washing phase, using various solutions to eliminate the soot, smoke particles, and other pollutants completely and to prevent corrosion of your metal items. When required, rough methods are applied, such as scrubbing, brushing with specific brushes and polishing.
Deep structural cleaning
The furniture, carpets, clothes and other household items with absorbing texture require a different approach. Using powerful equipment according to the latest industrial standards our company provides deep structural cleaning, eliminating the smallest particles of dust, dirt, soot and smoke even from the inside layers of texture.
Elimination of hazardous odors
Neutralization of all odors remaining after the fire accident is possibly the most challenging task in fire restoration process. To eliminate smoke odors and other gas pollutants, we use thermal foggers, ozone and hydroxyl generators designed to absorb these substances from every pore, clean the polluted air and deodorize it in the end.
