Commercial Fire Damage Restoration in Daytona Beach Requires Chemically Altering Soils

Any business that cooks and sells food such as your coffee shop and bakery in Daytona Beach is at risk for having something burn. A cooking mishap or an appliance malfunctioning could cause your company extensive commercial fire damage. Once anything burns inside your building, smoke can quickly spread across your structure. Smoke starts out as hot as the flames, and then it is attracted to cooler surfaces.

Once smoke contacts cold surfaces, the partially combusted particles can harden and cause soils to adhere to surfaces inside your place of business. During most commercial fire damage projects in Daytona Beach, our SERVPRO technicians spend much of their time working towards cleaning and removing soils and soot residues caused by smoke. Every time something burns, the flames created by the blaze devour different items to use as fuel. When various materials get torched, different types of smoke get created.

Our SERVPRO team knows that various kinds of smoke adhere to the surfaces present inside your coffee shop differently. For example, when fires burn fast and hot and have plenty of oxygen, they produce dry smoke, which can be relatively easy to clean and remove. And then when the blaze has less heat, is oxygen-starved and the fuels burn slowly, a wet smoke is created. Most restoration situations require the removal of both wet and dry smoke created by the different types of fuels present inside your coffee shop and bakery.

When our SERVPRO crew cleans soot residues and soils created after a burn, we utilize various chemical products and techniques. When removing wet smoke residues that adhere well to the surfaces inside your coffee shop, we often use detergents that chemically alter the soils to remove them. For example, enzyme digestion works by using living enzymes to digest proteins like blood, starch, and bodily discharges.

Bleaching is another way to chemically alter soils, and it works by reversing the discoloration effects of a stain. Oxidizing agents and bleaches work by adding oxygen to the residue molecules, which helps break them up. Reducing bleaches work the opposite way by taking out oxygen and reducing the bleaching powers of the oxidizer.

We know that cleanliness inside your coffee shop is essential, so we work towards cleaning all soils left behind after a fire and making your business' building seem, “Like it never even happened.” For help with any smoke-related issue, call SERVPRO of North Daytona Beach / Ormond Beach at (386) 677-9993 24 hours a day.
