Fire Damage Restoration In Daytona Beach Can Involve Various Elements Of Cleaning

After an inferno burns inside your residence in Daytona Beach, the biggest problem can become the presence of soils and soot residues. Once the flames get extinguished, it is possible that a majority of the fire damage will come in the form of soiled surfaces throughout your entire structure. Depending on the type of smoke present, it could be possible to save and restore your affected building materials and contents by cleaning them.

In some cases, fire damage in your Daytona Beach house could include removing and replacing items that got stained too badly from soot residues or charred deeply. In other cases, our SERVPRO technicians can clean the surfaces of your possessions and structural components and return them to the way they were before, "Like it never even happened." However, accomplishing restoration can be difficult if the residues are thick, and they adhere well to the surfaces they contacted. Whenever attempting to clean items that got negatively affected by soot or soils, we always utilize the following four elements of cleaning after fire damage.

 1. Temperature

Heat makes molecules move faster, therefore cleaning usually works better at higher temperatures. As the molecules move faster chemical reactions take place at a quicker speed.

 2. Agitation

When using agitation to clean soiled objects, our SERVPRO technicians either move the surface being cleaned, the cleaning solution or both. Agitation methods like water pressure, rotating brushes, or sandblasting can break the bond between the soils and the surface so that they can then be washed away.

 3. Chemical Action

Cleaning solutions make the cleaning process easier by bridging the gap between the soils and the water. The general rule we follow when picking the best chemical product to use is that like dissolves like. For example, oil-based soils get cleaned most effectively by using oil-based detergents.

 4. Time

The chemical reactions involved in using a certain solution to clean with it takes time for them to work their best. After applying cleaning products, our SERVPRO technicians follow the manufacturer's instructions and let the chemical sit for the recommended dwell time.

Using a combination of the elements of cleaning along with industrially approved chemicals and methods can help you save time and money during your restoration process. For professional assistance after a fire, call SERVPRO of North Daytona Beach / Ormond Beach at (386) 677-9993 24/7.
