Cleaning Various Structural Components During Fire Damage Restoration In Marco Island
Fire Damage Restoration
Your home or business cannot usually run after a fire damage incident. That means you may need restoration services before the next business day. Cleaning services are part of the restoration procedures, and with the technology that service providers use, it is possible to remove the smoke, soot, and odors. We are going to look at how we clean different structural components when attending to fire incidents in Marco Island.
Cabinets, lighting fixtures, attics, and insulation are part of the structural components that our SERVPRO technicians clean after fire damage events in Marco Island. The method we use when cleaning your cabinets is dependent on whether the surface is finished or not. Since soot particles can penetrate into crevices and recessed sections, we may decide to remove the knobs and any other hardware when necessary. With a dry cleaning sponge, we can remove smoke residues from a cabinet whose interior is made of unfinished wood. We may then use denatured alcohol and sanding to remove any remaining smoke residues.
When our SERVPRO technicians are cleaning the ceiling of your structure, we also clean the lighting fixtures. Before we start cleaning, we switch off the electrical power and then pretest our cleaning solutions so that we settle on the most appropriate one. The method that we use should not affect the fixture's finishing. We are careful when cleaning the chandeliers and depending on the situation we are dealing with, we may choose hand cleaning or decide to go with low-pressure steam cleaning. Where necessary, we can disassemble the chandeliers before doing the cleaning.
It is always challenging to remove residues from the attics since their surfaces are normally made of unfinished wood, are porous, and in most cases irregular in shape. By using a deodorizing pre-sealer or a duct sealer, we can seal any unexposed structural timber during the restoration. If there are some contents at the attics, we can remove them before doing the cleaning.
