Elements of Cleaning
There are four elements that are required so that fire residues can be removed.
- Temperature-Heat increases the speed of chemical reactions in cleaning products. The correct temperature must be chosen depending on the cleaning solutions and the materials being cleaned.
- Agitation- Dislodges residues from surfaces and distributes cleaning products across surfaces.
- Chemical Action- Professional cleaning products work through several chemical reactions with residues and surfaces. The correct cleaning product must be selected depending on the action desired.
- Time- The amount of time needed for professional cleaning and deodorization products to work varies upon the product and type of residues.
Fire damage presents a great variety of cleaning challenges due to the many ways that heat, oxygen, moisture and gases interact to form smoke residues. Our SERVPRO of Farmingdale/Massapequa team responds to a variety of challenges created when smoke residues and odors affect different surfaces and materials. We have many procedures for restoration and we utilize them all before fire-damaged materials are declared "unrestorable."
