Fire Damage Restoration in Raleigh Happens Fast with SERVPRO
Dissolving Residues During Fire Damage Restoration
Residues and soils that are not loose particles must be dissolved during fire damage restoration of your Raleigh home. SERVPRO techs use EPA-approved solvents to loosen the bonds between soils and surfaces, allowing them to be suspended.
SERVPRO techs use water-based and solvent-based solutions to clean residues during fire damage restoration of your Raleigh home. We also perform a pre-test to ensure that the cleaning agent does not cause any damage to the surface. As the techs suspend the soils in the cleaning solution, it is rinsed or extracted from the surface.
Steps to Dissolve Soils During House Fire Cleanup
SERVPRO techs use three steps to dissolve soils during the restoration of your Raleigh home-
- Wash: During this step, the SERVPRO techs apply a cleaning agent to the surface and agitate it to penetrate and loosen the soils. Once the residues are dislodged, they dissolve or suspend in the cleaning agent.
- Rinse: It is a step of removing the residues using a cleaning agent. The techs use pressure, agitation, or absorption to penetrate and extract the cleaning agent containing the residues.
- Dry: Drying is the final step of wet cleaning. SERVPRO techs remove all the water or solvent from the material during this step. Air movement, controlling humidity, and temperature can accelerate the drying rate. If the restorers don't remove the solvents completely, they can cause potential secondary damage.
