The Proper Way Of Cleaning Your Property After A Fire

Cleaning is an essential procedure during fire damage restoration. Though it sounds a bit straightforward, it is challenging since there are instances when you have to deal with finished, unfinished, painted, or unpainted surfaces. That is why restorers pretest surfaces for cleanability and then come up with the most appropriate cleaning methods. We are going to look at some of the procedures we perform when addressing fire incidents in Cicero.

When our SERVPRO technicians are cleaning ceilings and walls in your Cicero property after a fire damage event, we organize the structure such that the falling soils do not cause resoiling. If the team is using dry cleaning as an option, we start by cleaning the ceilings before moving to the walls. We also dry clean the floors after dry cleaning the walls. By cleaning walls from top to bottom and wiping from the dirty regions to the clean places, we avoid resoiling.

During wet cleaning, our SERVPRO technicians clean walls first before moving to the ceiling area. We do that to prevent streaking the walls since there is a possibility of the cleaning solution dripping. The cleaning process also starts from the bottom to the top to ensure the dirty areas do not streak. In situations where the ceiling is so high, we can use an extension pole together with a spotting pad holder. Alternatively, we can reach 8-foot ceilings by using a 5-foot ladder.

If your property has an acoustical ceiling, our SERVPRO team uses a unique technique that preserves its sound-deadening properties. The method is known as peroxide active ceiling cleaning. It is also effective on porous surfaces as far as such areas do not deteriorate after exposure to water-based solutions. Since stabilized hydrogen peroxide is present in the product, we cover natural materials such as cotton, paper, and wool as a precautionary measure.

The goal of SERVPRO of West Loop / Bucktown / Greektown is to return your property to its earlier state after experiencing Any Size Disaster. You can get in touch with our specialists by calling (773) 434-9100 to learn more about the available options.
