Return Your Property to Its Pre-loss State after Fire Damage in Chicago
Team SERVPRO Arrives With the Training and Equipment to Tackle the Damage Left by a Fire
According to the National Fire Protection Association, around 1,342,000 fires were reported in the US back in 2016, and 475,500 were structural fires. That shows how severe fire damage is and the need to have working options if you ever experience such incidents. Professionals in the industry offer critical restoration services which can help you return your Chicago home to its preloss state if you ever go through such experiences.
If you decide to work with SERVPRO as your restoration service provider once you experience fire damage in your Chicago property, there are certain things you should expect. The moment we arrive at your home, we first find and identify the type of residues, and this helps us to determine the most suitable cleaning process to use. Dissolving and vacuuming are the most common techniques we use to capture and remove smoke particles from the site.
There are certain aspects we look at before we decide on vacuuming as a technique. For instance, the residues need to be dry and loosely attached to the surfaces for the method to be efficient. When there is moisture, there is a possibility of the surfaces absorbing the particles, hence making it difficult to remove.
Before our SERVPRO technicians remove soils and residues that are firmly attached to the surfaces, there is a need to perform dissolving. When we dissolve them, we weaken the bond connecting the particles to the area, and that makes it possible for a cleaning product to flush away the dirt. We are careful when choosing the solvents we use since we understand that some of them can react with surfaces and lead to further damage.
Once we capture the residues, our SERVPRO technicians follow the local regulations and dispose of the particles. When then perform deodorization to neutralize the odors and improve the quality of air in the building. Deodorants also have antimicrobial properties that prevent the possibility of mold growth.
