We Use Different Types of Cleaning Agents when Mitigating the Soot from Fire Damage in Middletown Homes
A large percentage of restoring a damaged home in Middletown involves cleaning both the contents, the structural components, and the structure itself. Stripping these of the soot deposited by the smoke often reveals a lot less damage than what the homeowners previously thought existed.
When mitigating a Middletown home of smoke and fire damage, we use different cleaning liquids to get the job done fast. We know our customers want to get moved back into their home, and getting everything safely clean again takes special equipment as well as some elbow grease.
We use general surface cleaners for wet cleaning of a majority of the surfaces found in a home. These include countertops, walls, ceilings, many wallpapers and paneling types, appliances, and several varieties of furniture. These types of cleaning agents have a low pH, so they do not strip surfaces of their finishes while we remove the soot.
SERVPRO knows you want your windows, mirrors and Formica countertops sparkling again. We have a specially-formulated glass cleaner that gets the job done. We know how to get these streak-free, as well.
For cleaning up heavily soiled items, or where we found copious amounts of greasy soot, we rely on heavy-duty cleaners. These get metal components of stoves and furnaces clean again. When your carpet contains soot, we use this, mixed with a super-concentrated shampoo, to make your carpet beautiful again.
When your home contains natural stone or brick, a fire and its smoke can leave these looking like a complete loss. Many tiles and their grout can leave you with the same impression after a fire. However, SERVPRO technicians use strong acid cleaners to pull soot out of the pores and get these materials clean again.
For switch plates and other items on your walls, we have a thick liquid creme cleaner that pulls soot off surfaces and leaves them free of grime. For wood, we depend on another creme explicitly designed for clearing the pores of wood of soot that otherwise might leave discoloration and stains.
One of our most gentle cleanser types is based on oxidation. These can remove stains, as well as soot. We trust this type of cleanser to help us mitigate many kinds of damage because of the way stains disintegrate and odors diminish.
While we use personal protective equipment when using these cleaners, SERVPRO wants you to know that either these dry without a residue or that we rinse the cleansing agent off the surface we cleaned. Your family's safety is of utmost importance to us, and our goal is to eliminate all hazards before you move back home.
