What Type of Cleaner Should I Use on Fire Damage in North Kingstown?
SERVPRO techs know post-fire cleanup in North Kingstown homes require multiple types of equipment and cleaning agents
After a fire in your North Kingstown home, it can be tempting to fill a bucket with your favorite cleaning product and go to work. However, that is one of the worst things you can do because not all smoke residues are the same, and applying liquids to some types can cause marring of surfaces. SERVPRO techs use multiple applications and cleaning solutions to ensure the best outcome throughout the work-site.
How Do I Get Fire Damage Off Wood Furniture?
There are some considerations before diving in to clean up the remnants of fire damage on furniture in your North Kingstown home.
• Is the furniture made from hardwood
• Are the joints swelled or cracked from heat or water exposure?
• Is charring seen on the item?
• Are the residues wet or dry smoke?
If you cannot answer all those questions with a definitive answer, it is best to let SERVPRO techs inspect and clean your furnishings. While furniture with burned areas may not have the potential for reuse, the techs carefully test residues and surfaces to choose the best restoration method. Specific cleaning actions get used for lifting away dry smoke, most often found on walls, but occasionally on furnishings depending on the heat of the fire.
They can also use their moisture detection equipment to ascertain if there is any problem with water inside the furniture that needs to get dried before any restorative efforts. Best of all, they have access to many professional wood soaps, waxes, and sealants to ensure the furniture will not have any reminders of the previous smoke damage.
