Agitation Used During Fire Debris Cleanup In Chicago
Structural burns that occur in Chicago can go from being minor to severe quickly if efforts do not get made to extinguish the flames and promptly mitigate the damage caused. Even smaller blazes can require fire debris cleanup conducted by a professional restoration company such as SERVPRO. The longer charred materials are left inside your home; the longer burnt odors can linger.
During every restoration project we conduct, our SERVPRO crew takes many measures to deodorize your home and return it to its preloss state, "Like it never even happened." In many situations, malodor particles get removed from your Chicago residence once fire debris cleanup gets conducted. When anything burns inside a building, the burnt particles and soot residues left behind by the smoke created can be a prime source for unpleasant aromas. In some cases, though, further deodorization procedures must be taken to rid the structure of all of the foul odors present.
During any fire-related restoration project, our SERVPRO technicians first work towards securing the building. We can inspect your property and look for any potential hazards. If we find things like broken light fixtures or burnt drywall that is hanging down, we quickly mitigate the potential safety issue.
Once we make the work area safe for all occupants, we start removing any severely burnt items from fire damage. Often times after a burn, many things will be charred to the point where they have to be removed and replaced. But, many times, we can save items by cleaning and refinishing them.
For example, if charring is only present less than a quarter-inch deep in your building materials like your wooden studs, then we can often remove the charred content, seal the item, and then refinish it if necessary. Agitation, in one way or another, can be one of the most effective methods to use when removing charred material.
In situations where the charred materials are in-depth, sanding can be used to remove it. In cases where the charring is not as deep, steel scrub brushes can be used to remove the burnt materials. In other situations, soda blasting or dry ice blasting can be useful when removing charred materials.
Our team of restoration experts knows the best ways to save your possessions and building materials by removing the charring, sealing, and refinishing the items.
