Factors of Fire Damage Cleanup in Wilton Manors Properties
Certain Conditions Impact Fire Damage Recovery
As leading fire damage professionals in the state, SERVPRO works quickly to reach homes and businesses impacted by fires and subsequent smoke effects. When these effects exist, the cleaning of the house can be influenced by several factors. Soot and soiling can target many areas of the property, including:
What Type of Smoke Damage
When SERVPRO professionals first assess fire damage in Wilton Manors properties, we must determine the nature of the damage.
What Type of Smoke Damage?
When SERVPRO professionals first assess fire damage in Wilton Manors properties, we must determine the type of smoke damage impacting the structure. A considerable difference exists between wet and dry smoke damage, but the cleaning can become even more challenging with added obstacles of grease and proteins.
Your home can often be warm after a fire for a lengthy period, but when surfaces cool, they become more challenging to clean and restore. Maintaining warmth in the workspace allows chemical processes to occur faster, with molecules moving more quickly than in colder temperatures.
Contact Period with Cleaning Products
Contact time measures the exposure period with cleaning products on soiled surfaces. In some situations, contact time must be lengthy to allow solvents or pairing chemicals to have the desired effects. Other potent cleaning agents can mar or ruin underlying substrates with too long contact time. SERVPRO professionals must continually monitor conditions to avoid unpleasant outcomes.
Environmental Moisture Levels
Humidity is an important factor in the salvageability of materials after a fire and how readily SERVPRO can clean specific surfaces. Reducing high moisture content can positively affect the overall cleaning, reducing the probability of soils staining surfaces or being unnecessarily challenging to lift and remove from affected materials.
Many factors can influence the ease of cleaning up after structure fires. Our professionals understand how to utilize these factors to provide a positive and swift result for your home. Give our SERVPRO of Ft. Lauderdale North team a call to help at (954) 734-1006.
