Fire Damage Restoration In West Palm Beach Sometimes Involves Cleaning Resilient Hard Floors
How SERVPRO Can Help Your Hard Floors After a Fire
Whenever something burns on your property in West Palm Beach, one major problem can have to do with soils and soot residues created by smoke and charred materials. When dealing with fire damage, our SERVPRO technicians spend much of their time figuring out how to clean and restore your contents and building materials that got negatively affected. The various surfaces inside your house can take different chemicals and methods to clean.
One major part of any fire damage project in West Palm Beach is cleaning the floors inside your house. Our SERVPRO team knows that floors can collect a large amount of smoke residues during and after an inferno burns. Also, gravity can force any particles that did not adhere to your ceilings and walls to fall to the floor. Work processes can also cause charred particles to get released into the air and then eventually settle onto your flooring materials. Therefore, as a part of the restoration process, we can clean the floors both at the beginning and at the end of all mitigation procedures.
Most houses have various types of flooring, including carpets and hard floors, both of which must be cleaned differently. Carpets often get cleaned by using hot water extraction methods with a heavy-duty truck-mounted extractor. Hard floors, on the other hand, can get cleaned using a variety of chemicals and methods depending on the severity of the situation.
Many homes contain some vinyl flooring, which is classified as being resilient. These types of materials consist largely of resins and polymers. These floors are also relatively soft compared to wood or concrete, and they come in either tiles or large sheets.
Light to moderate surface residues present on your resilient floors can often be cleaned by sweeping, dust mopping, or damp mopping. For more heavy soot residues, spray buffing could be implemented. During the spray buffing process, residues get removed then replaced with a spray buff solution. If the smoke residues are thick and they adhere well to your floor's surface, then the flooring could have to be removed and replaced.
