a fire damaged office with soot covering the desks and debris everywhere When fire damage affects your office, the carpeted floors can sustain smoke damage as well. Call SERVPRO to start the remediation process.

Tactics SERVPRO Enhances Slidell Fire Restoration With

You may have chosen carpeted floors for your Slidell premises because of the advantages like better aesthetics, cleaner workspace, and noise reduction. These advantages seem to disappear after a fire incident. Fire damage on carpets can range from burns to deep soiling when soot settles on the floor.

Most magnitudes of carpet fire damage in Slidell premises are reversible apart from burning. SERVPRO has the resources necessary to restore your carpeted surfaces to their preloss condition.

Main things to address

  • Unpleasant odors
  • Stains or discoloration
  • Quality of the pile
  • Delamination

Apart from soiling and burning, physical damage is highly likely in a fire-damaged facility. Foot traffic and dragging heavy items on the floors can cause delamination or tear some sections. Since it is impossible to fix such problems, our SERVPRO technicians identify sections with severe physical damage to determine whether some areas must be cut away and disposed of.

Soiling by fire

Smoke spreads residues all over the property, leaving it on walls, ceilings, and items. Ultimately, most of these residues are driven to the floor when interfered with during restoration efforts or by gravity forces.

Preventing soiling is hardly achievable since carpets cover vast areas. However, preventing the soils from setting is realistic and necessary. Our SERVPRO technicians help achieve this by taking appropriate procedures in good time.

Some useful actions

  • Capturing dry residues
  • Cleaning based on material type
  • Controlling cleaning agent application

A significant percentage of the fire residues left on surfaces in your workplace is dry and powdery. Removing these residues before introducing water-based cleaning methods simplifies the process. SERVPRO crews vacuum the dirty floor deeply to capture soot residues from the fibers. The vacuuming can be done independently or enhanced with dry solvents.

The most preferred carpet materials for commercial settings include Olefin, Nylon, or Polypropylene. Cost or durability may have been the main driving factor when choosing the material. When selecting a restoration approach, our technicians consider how it might affect your material.
