Cleaning During Fire Damage Restoration of Sevierville Homes
SERVPRO® Helps When Sevierville Fire Restoration Requires Advanced Resources
A fire incident is scary since it can reduce your investment and years of work to a pile of rubble when the flames consume materials. Although many Seviervillefire incidents are contained on time, they still cause dire issues, such as general soiling and staining. A proper cleaning approach is essential for successful fire damage restoration.
Safely completing fire damage restoration in your Sevierville property is essential, so enhancing safety at every stage, including the cleaning process. Accessing appropriate protective gear is one way to safely complete the procedures despite hazards such as sharp objects, harmful residues, and risks such as frayed electrical cables. Our SERVPRO crews are well-equipped with protective clothing and accessories such as splash goggles, respirators, gloves, and rubber boots.
PPE eases cleaning tasks such as
- Tearing down charred drywall remains
- Abrasive cleaning, such as sanding to restore charred areas
- Applying chemical agents to heavily soiled or stained areas
- Manipulation contents around the work site
Preparing the loss site before starting cleanup helps improve the process, although you may consider it a waste of time. Preparation establishes order, determining what cleaning aspects to prioritize or delay.
How preparation improves the cleaning process
The soiling and damages caused by fires are usually widespread; therefore, resolving them requires significant effort, resources, and time. However, some resources, such as equipment and accessories, can create bottlenecks that impede the process. Our SERVPRO crews start the process by isolating a section of the property as a staging area for holding the equipment when not in use or for mixing cleaning products eliminating impediments such as tangled cables and hoses or slick floors, allowing for timely execution of cleaning processes.
Necessary cleaning steps after a fire
- Vacuuming with a HEPA-filtered device to remove most soot and ash traces
- Wiping flat surfaces with chemical sponges to remove attached soot without leaving smudges
- Aggregating and resizing debris into manageable chunks
