What Cleaning Practices Remove Surface Residues?
Much of the choices made in restoring fire damage to West Palm Beach condos and residences involve understanding the type of smoke residue and debris present. Every type of fire can present a different obstacle for restorers like our SERVPRO team. Grease and kitchen fires often result in protein residues on exposed surfaces like the cabinets and counter-tops. There are several potential approaches to removing these residues and restoring the underlying materials.
- Agitative Cleaning – Agitative cleaning involves several different potential processes such as brushing, steel wool, vacuuming, or feather dusting to remove thicker groupings of particulates on the surface.
- Media Blasting – By combining baking soda along with pressurized air or water, we can often break apart thick residues on surfaces generated by proteins and grease without damaging the substrate underneath.
- Chemical Solvents – We have multiple cleaning products designed to address oil-based soils and water-based threats alike. Chemical solvents can emulsify surface soiling to rinse or wipe it away.
As threatening as fire losses can seem, our SERVPRO of Lake Worth team has the experience and a potent line of cleaning products to help restore exposed elements and contents. Give us a call anytime that you need us at (561) 588-9777.
