Cleaning Fire Damage Residues From the Ceiling of Your New Milford Home

Smoke and fire damage never stop when the fire has been put out by the fire trucks. There is more that happens behind the scenes which is likely to destroy your belongings if the right actions are not taken as soon as possible. Remember, the water they used to put off the fire is still in your property and if not extracted and appropriate cleanup procedures put in place, then your New Milford property is likely to experience unnecessary destruction. This article discusses some of the actions that we take to prevent such eventualities and return your home to its preloss condition.

Let us start by looking at three main procedures that we use when restoring the walls and ceilings of your fire damaged New Milford property. If your building has painted metal or wood ceilings and it happens that heavy smoke residues settled on its surface, then we may consider using wet cleaning. The method is also appropriate when cleaning dry ash from the mentioned surfaces. If our SERVPRO technicians are cleaning light or medium smoke residues, then we can opt for dry cleaning. It is a technique where we use a cleaning sponge to remove the particles. In most cases, we employ dry cleaning techniques before we can start using wet cleaning procedures – which is only possible when dealing with non-greasy soling.

Some fire damage incidents may leave heavy tar soling or nicotine particles in acoustical, porous or non-porous surfaces. In such situations, our SERVPRO technicians use a method known as peroxide active cleaning. We prefer this method when there are chances of dissolving the coating that exists on blown ceilings. During cleaning, we use disinfectants to deactivate mold spores and reduce the chances of its growth.

SERVPRO of Teaneck / Englewood has the experience and expertise to deal with all sizes if fire damage incidents. Prevent your building from experiencing unnecessary loss and call (201) 266-0482 to have all your questions answered.
