SERVPRO Uses Advanced Cleaning Methods during Fire Restoration in Morgan Hill

Fire damage such as charring or deep soiling of unfinished structural surfaces or fixtures is both an advantage and disadvantage. The advantage is that it is possible to use aggressive cleaning methods on such surfaces without worrying about ruining finishes. However, the porousness and roughness of such surfaces make most cleaning approaches ineffective.

When addressing fire damage in Morgan Hill homes, SERVPRO seeks ways to combat the challenges posed by unfinished surfaces. Using sophisticated cleaning and deodorizing methods helps combat the issue.

Blast cleaning using dry ice canons or a soda blaster helps reverse smoke damage or light to medium charring. Blast cleaning accelerates a medium such as solid carbon dioxide or sodium bicarbonate in a stream of air. When the medium hits the surface, it disintegrates, removing the foreign matter without stripping off the material.

After getting rid of the soiling, the next stage is to eliminate pungent fire residue smells since odor molecules penetrate deep into porous materials. A method such as thermal fogging helps since it vaporizes deodorizers creating half a micron molecule that penetrate deep into the odorous materials. SERVPRO offers unique solutions for:

  • Fire damage restoration
  • Fire and smoke damage
  • Smoke remediation
