SERVPRO Considers Fire Damage Extent When Restoring Teaneck Premises

A critical piece of equipment, like an oven, can be a recipe for disaster in a bakery. A problem in the transportation system or heat exchanger may cause oil to escape into the baking chamber of an indirect-fired thermal oven, thus causing a fire in a Teaneck cake shop. You can call SERVPRO for efficient cleanup and rapid-fire damage restoration in your commercial property.

SERVPRO technicians are experts at fire damage restoration in Teaneck premises. We restore internal and external surfaces that have been fire or smoke damaged, such as brickwork, walls, ceilings, flooring, air conditioning, and ventilation systems. By factoring in the type of finish and extent of the damage on the furniture in your shop, our crew can effectively restore the surface from smoke damage.

Useful Actions During Smoke Residues Removal

  • Finding the residues
  • Categorizing the residue types
  • Identifying the surface affected by soot residues  
  • Removing and properly disposing of residues

Aspects to Consider When Cleaning Wood Surfaces

When cleaning wood surfaces, we consider the different finishes like shellac, varnish, paint, waxes, or lacquer, which affects furniture's resistance to smoke odors and particles. This might limit or expand the range of cleaning methods we use.  

Cleaning Methods Effective During the Restoration Process

  • Dry cleaning
  • Wet cleaning
  • Abrasive cleaning

Our cleaning methods begin by removing as many dry soils from the surfaces as possible using a vacuum, feather dusters, dusting cloth, or a dry cleaning sponge. Unfinished wood surfaces easily absorb smoke residues and odors and are best cleaned using dry cleaning methods. If water-based products are used in such a case, they allow absorption of smoke residues deeper into the pores, thus causing staining. We might also use denatured alcohol if the sponge is not effective enough. SERVPRO technicians use a mild detergent to clean and apply oil-based furniture polish to restore the wood's natural oils for moderate levels of soot residues on wood furniture.
