SERVPRO Chooses Strategies that Simplify Residue and Odor Removal during Raleigh House Fire Cleanup

The challenge of fire and smoke cleanup varies depending on the items the fire burns or the type of fuel involved. Grease fires produce significant smoke and leave sticky residues even when physical damage such as charring is minimal. Cleaning takes several approaches to restore the soiled areas and eliminate odor.

Prioritizing some fire and smoke cleanup steps in Raleigh properties helps improve the outcomes. For instance, quick removal of burned or charred items helps mitigate pungent odors. Our SERVPRO technicians wheeled trash cans to collect damaged materials from your loss site, moving them outside the house. Eliminating the charred remains paves the way for the other cleanup processes.

Removing Soiled or Charred Materials is Necessary Whether Performing:

  • Water and fire damage restorations
  • Fire restoration
  • House fire clean up

Addressing smoke damage requires cleaning residue deposits on surfaces and addressing any materials lodged beyond the surface. As a fire burns, the heat opens up pores of various materials, increasing the difficulty of cleaning such surfaces. 

Our SERVPRO technicians use different approaches to combat the challenges. For instance, heating cleaning agents improve their efficiency in cleaning residues. We can also use specialized fire restoration techniques such as soda blasting, which helps strip off wet smoke residues and other stubborn soils faster. Deodorization helps finish any traces of pungent odor.

Typical Fire Deodorization Techniques Include

•    ULV fogging

•    Thermal fogging

•    Activated oxygen
