Our Fire Damage Restoration Experts Will Remove Soot And Smoke Residue From Your St. Petersburg Home
Controlling Soot and Smoke Residues during Fire Damage Restoration in St. Petersburg
To come up with efficient fire damage restoration techniques, service providers in the restoration industry must understand the theory of fire. It is all about knowing how smoke, heat, and fire affect various items and the structure. Soot residues are not the same, and even if they are the same, they end up resting on different surfaces. Some can be easy to clean, while some are challenging to remove from the various structural components in your St. Petersburg property.
When our SERVPRO team is performing fire damage restoration in your St. Petersburg home, we have to clean the soot and smoke residues that settle on attics, insulation, windows, and glass. It is a big challenge to clean up attics since most of their surfaces are porous, have unfinished wood, their shapes are irregular, and have limited access. During the restoration process, we can use a deodorizing pre-sealer to seal the unexposed structural timber. If you are storing some of your contents in the attics, removing them may be necessary before we can clean the area.
From experience, it cost less to replace insulation than to clean. Though soot residues change the appearance of the insulation, it does not mean its insulation capabilities have been compromised. In most cases, we remove and replace 3 - 4 inches of the insulation's top part. Before covering the lower layer of the insulation with a new one, we make sure it does not have any smoke odor.
We use a low-alkaline glass cleaner to clean window glass. By using a squeegee and a spray bottle to apply the cleaner, we can do the cleaning. We never forget the framework and all the components of the window construction. If there are cavities in the walls, we may decide to use foggers to neutralize the smell.
