Fire Damage Cleaning can make A Big Difference after Experiencing Fire Damage in Chicago After a fire soot damage can remain throughout your home

Cleaning, a vital step after fire damage.

The steps you take after experiencing a fire damage incident have a direct impact on your property. Given that such events are traumatic, you need to seek for professional services if you need your concerns addressed in the right manner. There is a lot you can salvage in your Chicago property when the proper procedures are put in place to mitigate the damage.

Our SERVPRO technicians perform emergency services with the aim of limiting the secondary damages that your Chicago property is likely to suffer after a fire damage event. We start by pretesting and in the process find out the contents that you need to replace, items that do not require any form of cleaning and those to clean. Once we complete the pretest, we let you know the scope of the restoration process so that you know what to expect.

Let us discuss some of the cleaning techniques that our SERVPRO technicians use when restoring your property. When it is necessary, our team can employ immersion techniques when we need to apply the cleaning solution to all parts of the material. With this technique, we can control the quantity and temperature of the cleaning product as well as the time of exposure to the cleaning agent.

When we do not need the cleaning product to saturate the material and prevent overwetting, we can decide to use surface techniques. For instance, we can wipe after spraying the cleaning agent on hard surfaces such as furniture. It is also appropriate to use foam cleaning if excessive moisture is likely to damage the materials.

After cleaning all the surfaces, it is time to perform deodorization. This process improves the quality of air and sterilizes surfaces to lower the chances of bacteria and fungi growth that are likely to cause health effects. Our SERVPRO technicians always put on protective gear such as masks, gloves, and overalls as a safety measure during the restoration process.

SERVPRO of Hyde Park / E. Bridgeport / Bronzeville attends to all forms of storm, mold, fire, and water damage. Call us at (312) 509-5000 if you want to work with a proven industry leader, and we can make “Like it never even happened.”
