Fire Damage Restoration For Your Montgomery Home
Experiencing a fire in your Montgomery home is quite upsetting, and you could be feeling a sense of shock. Many people do not know what the first step to take is once the fire is out. Professional help to restore your home is going to be needed, and it is something that you should not wait on, as the longer you let the smoke and soot sit, the more damage occurs.
Make sure to follow any safety regulations given you by your local fire department after you’ve had a fire in your Montgomery home. After the fire is out, you can call our professionals at SERVPRO for help remediating fire damage. We have tools and experience that is needed to restore your home, so it looks “Like it never even happened.”
Take your children and pets to an environment that is smoke-free after a fire. Starting with a neighbor you trust for aid right away is good, then you can move to a temporary home with family or friends while the restoration to your home is being done.
Before beginning the restoration process, SERVPRO staff pretest certain items in your home to figure out the best restoration procedure. By doing an inspection and pretesting, we can find and identify the kinds of residues present and figure out what kind of surfaces need cleaning.
Residues have to be captured before we can remove them. We use air and fluids to release and carry the soils away. Air and fluids contain suspended particles in them once they come into contact with each other. Dissolving and vacuuming are two ways we contact soils and carry them off to dispose of them.
Smoke residues consist of solid particles that are mostly made up of carbon. Dry particles loosely attached to surfaces can be vacuumed. Particles containing moisture can make the surface absorb them and make them difficult to remove. We try to vacuum dry residues from a surface first before applying any wet cleaning products.
Soils and residues which are not loose particles have to be dissolved before we can remove them. Dissolving them and loosening their bond with the surface lets them be suspended in a cleaning product and then flushed away as we rinse or extract it from the surface. The kind of soil and surface are the two main factors in dissolving soils. Some are water-soluble, but others are not and need us to use a solvent-based cleaning product instead.
