Experienced Professionals Care for Various Fire-Damaged Materials in Gorman Homes

11/2/2021 (Permalink)

Dark grey smoke in the air. Let SERVPRO of North Durham help with your many fire-damaged materials after a fire.

The type of material affected requires different cleaning practices in fire-damaged Gorman properties. 

SERVPRO professionals understand the magnitude of post-fire loss effects in homes and businesses. Migrating particles and smoke damage can ruin installed materials without swift action and mitigation solutions provided by our fast-responding technicians. 

Cleaning Carpeted Floors 

Fire damage restoration for Gorman homes means addressing how the fire has impacted installed building materials in your house. Carpets are a common staple and one that soot particles and smoke damage can readily affect. Cleaning these flooring elements is possible with one of several potential options, including:

  • Conditioning
  • Hot Water Extraction
  • Deluxe Bonnet Cleaning

Cleaning Wood Surfaces and Fixtures

Wood can be a wild variable in fire restoration, primarily because of different types and applications. Soot and smoke damage on these materials requires us to work quickly to prevent the destruction of these exposed elements when acidic soot compositions etch the finish or varnish of finished wood surfaces. Wood créme cleaners are non-abrasive products that do not overwhelm damaged wood with moisture threats. 

Cleaning Tile Floors and Backsplashes

Tiles can exist in several areas of your house but are traditionally installed as kitchen or bathroom flooring, as well as accents to the walls of these rooms in a backsplash fashion. When fire damages exist, soot can cover the tile face and get into the grouted joints of the tile. Cleaning includes strong alkaline cleaners for the tile faces and solutions like muriatic acid for cleaning grout. 

With so many building materials and contents present in every fire-damaged home that our SERVPRO of North Durham assists, we must come prepared for various restoration approaches. Our experienced restoration professionals have effective mitigation and cleaning methods to return homes to preloss condition fast. Give us a call today at (919) 467-0880.
