smoke from a fire Smoke and soot damage made by fire is no easy task. SERVPRO uses the latest and most innovative equipment for every size of disaster.

SERVPRO Techs Use Several Cleaning Techniques During Fire Damage Restoration of Your Seattle Home

Cleaning the soot and residue left behind is a significant part of the fire damage restoration of your Seattle home. The techniques and cleaning methods that SERVPRO techs use to clean the structures depend on the amount and type of residue and the surfaces involved. 

From emulsifying the residue in a solvent to altering the residue chemically, SERVPRO techs use many cleaning approaches during fire damage restoration of your Seattle home. However, it often takes a mechanical agitation to dislodge residues left behind by smoke damage. SERVPRO techs can often clean light concentrations of non-greasy residues on non-porous surfaces through mechanical agitation. The amount of agitation required depends on the condition of the fire-damaged homes.   

How SERVPRO Techs Produce Agitation During House Fire Cleanup of Your Seattle Home? 

Heavy agitation during fire restoration is needed to dislodge thicker residues that form tight bonds with the surfaces. Some ways of producing serious agitation include the following-

  • Abrasive Powders- These powders have particulates that can exert an abrasive effect when applied correctly to a surface. SERVPRO techs use powders in the form of Liquid Crème Cleaners on non-porous surfaces such as stainless steel and high gloss paint. 
  • Roto pads and brushes- The rotating pads and brushes agitate, buff, or polish flooring surfaces of your fire-damaged Seattle home.
  • Blast cleaning- Utilizes compressed air to blast some media against the soiled surface during fire and smoke damage restoration. Some of the standard media used in blast cleaning include sand, baking soda, and dry ice. The amount of agitation depends on the size of the media particles and their speed.
