SERVPRO Knows the Proper Techniques to Restore Every Part of Your Home after Fire Damage

Your laptop is something you use every day in Cicero for work or fun. Excess power, whether it is provided through poorly regulated power flow or power spikes, causes heat damage to electronics. It includes wires in a damaged power cord, plus metal parts of your laptop which is connected to it. The chance for combustion grows as the heat in your device builds. When the heat gets to the flashpoint of nearby furniture or carpeting, it can set other materials ablaze.

An electrical fire leaves you with a lot of fire damage to clean up and repair, but knowing where to start can be daunting. Your Cicero home needs professional expertise to get it restored back to the way it was after a fire, so calling on our technicians at SERVPRO is the wisest thing you can do once the fire is out.

Our goal to is to clean your home to preloss condition, which involves removing the effects of the fire damage. We also remove smoke residues from surfaces of your home. The residues give off smoke odors as well, so we have to deodorize the affected areas to get rid of malodors. Fires can damage parts of your structure badly enough that they cannot be restored, so we need to dispose of these structural items.

Before SERVPRO techs start cleaning, we do testing to figure out the right cleaning method, which is one that effectively removes the residues from the material or surface without damaging it. We can wet clean washable materials; we apply a cleaning agent that is water-based to the surface that does not damage the material. Non-washable materials cannot be wet cleaned. Applying a water-based cleaning product could cause more damage, so we use a dry cleaning method instead.

The type of residues on a surface can also help us choose the method of cleaning. Residues that are oil or grease-based need a cleaning agent which is a dry solvent, even though products which are water-based would not harm the surface being cleaned.
