Useful Actions That Help With Your Fire Cleanup In Slidell.

A fire leaves several wastes including partly burnt materials from the structure or the contents within. Cleanup, therefore, requires several actions. Some of these actions remove wastes from the site while the other actions help restore the affected materials. We have IICRC certified FSRT, Fire and Smoke Restoration Technicians who can handle the process fast but effectively.

When doing fire cleanup in Slidell, it is essential to account for all the contents that were in the premises before the fire. From a casual look of items covered in smoke, it is easy to throw away useful items in the process of debris removal. Our SERVPRO team uses an electronic CCIS, Content Claim Inventory Service, which helps keep track of items based on whether they are salvageable or not. We can also use it to group items room by room.

Restorative cleaning helps save contents or parts of the structure damaged by heat and smoke from the fire instead of replacing them. There are several reasons why restoration may be the preferred choice including saving costs and preserving sentimental value. Our SERVPRO technicians inspect the affected areas to determine the extent of the damage since extensive levels of damage cannot be reversed through restorative cleaning. We use regular abrasive action such as wire brushing or specialized techniques such as soda blasting to clean the affected surfaces.

Smoke damages reach most corners of the property during a fire. This happens because convectional currents drive the smoke. In this process, hot air displaces cooler air, so as long as the fire burns, the smoke keeps moving. The residues left vary depending on the type of material burnt. The intensity of the fire might also affect the cleaning efforts because scorching temperatures open up pores on surfaces driving smoke residues deeper. Our SERVPRO technicians rely on the chemical action of professional cleaning agents, which dissolves, bleaches, emulsifies or oxidizes residues. We also use mechanical agitation to remove smoke residues from the affected property.

SERVPRO Will Minimize Damage and Costs For Slidell. 

Failure to get a professional restoration service can aggravate the damage that an enterprise suffers after a utility room fire or electrical fire. Soot damage and smoke damage are some of the most dangerous elements to watch out for after the fire truck and firefighter have cleared the premises. Even after the fire dies, smoke lingers in a building and seeps into every corner the longer it stays without removal. Soot, ash, and smoke will ruin upholstery, carpeting, flooring, and walls. Fire damage cleanup companies use advanced techniques, tools, and products to fix different types of damages. Effective restoration after commercial fire damage ensures that problems don’t arise later which may cost more money to repair.

Once the fire truck has cleared the location of a commercial fire damage, the next call should be to fire restoration experts. Besides cleaning up the soot and smoke, technicians will guarantee the building adheres to safety standards by ensuring that the fire suppression, fire hose, and fire sprinkler system are up to code. Whether it’s a factory or utility room fire, experienced restoration experts can deal with the smoke damage, carpet cleaning, and repairs.
