SERVPRO Specializes in Fire Damage Restoration of Properties in Downtown Chicago

Fire damage in densely populated Downtown Chicago requires remediation by professionals equipped to handle such situations. SERVPRO of Evergreen Park/ South Chicago City is an Official Licensed Downtown Chicago Operator having trained technicians with experience facing unique challenges of the area.

One of the biggest tasks of SERVPRO restorers after fire damage to the Downtown Chicago building is the cleanup of smoke and soot residue. Our restorers apply scientific principles and elements of cleaning to restore materials to a preloss condition as quickly as possible. Mechanical agitation is often required if the residue is bonded tightly with the surfaces. SERVPRO techs use several tools for mechanical agitation, including sandpapers, steel wool, roto pads, and blast cleaning.

What is Blast Cleaning That SERVPRO Techs Use During House Fire Cleanup in Downtown Chicago?

SERVPRO techs use blast cleaning in case of heavy soot and residue buildup after extensive smoke damage to your Downtown Chicago property. The process involves using compressed air or rotary blasting equipment to blast (strike with force) some media against the soiled surface. Dry ice pellet blasting has the added benefit of not introducing more water during the cleanup stage. Soda blasting with sodium bicarbonate also can help to deodorize the fire damaged area.

We use several blasting media, including baking soda, dry ice, and even ground corn cobs. The amount of agitation produced depends on many factors including-

  • shape and size of the blast media, and
  • the speed at which it is blasted against the surface
