Fire Damage Restoration In New Britain Involves Various Elements Of Cleaning
Even small blazes inside your New Britain apartment complex can cause your unit problems. For example, heat or smoke coming from an inferno burning inside another unit could cause some types of fire damage to exist inside your dwelling. The most common incident to occur is that smoke coming from a fire in another part of your complex gets into your structure and leaves behind soils and soot residues.
Most fire damage projects in New Britain require an extensive amount of cleaning. Sometimes, charred materials can be removed by agitation and cleaning methods. Also, when things get burnt, charred materials can build up on other surfaces. Smoke can also cause soot residues to exist on any surface it contacts.
When residues exist after fire damage, our SERVPRO technicians utilize various techniques and chemicals to clean and remove all soils present. However, all of the methods involve the four following elements of cleaning, which are temperature, agitation, chemical action, and time or TACT.
Since the hotter molecules are, the faster they move (for the most part), the cleaning works better at higher temperatures. However, cleaning products have certain temperatures where they work best, and the products can get too hot to where the ruin the surfaces they are cleaning. Higher temperatures can also reduce the surface tension of water-based solutions and allow the products to dissolve soils better.
Agitation can be defined as moving the surface, the solution being cleaned, or both. Agitation can be used by our SERVPRO team to free or dislodge soils.
- Chemical Action
When using chemical action to dissolve soils, the key principle to remember is that like dissolves like. Therefore, water-based solutions work best on water-based residues, whereas oil-based solvents are most effective when battling oily soils.
The amount of time it takes for the soils to dissolve and the chemical actions to work properly is called the "dwell time."
