Manteno Possessions Are Cleaned of Soot from a House Fire by SERVPRO
Different Types of Fire Damage Require Different Clean Up Methods to Restore Property in Manteno
The restoration and mitigation specialists at SERVPRO take pride in the results of their IICRC training. We learn new techniques that help us restore your Manteno property and clean your possessions. We want to make everything like it was before the disaster, “Like it never even happened.”
To do this, SERVPRO employees use specific methods to clean different items in your Manteno house of the effects of fire damage. We use both dry and wet methods, depending on what we are in the process of cleaning and restoring. Our teams can do some of the work at your home, without needing to remove the items to our facility. We place these belongings in a secure area of your house where they do not impose on our other team members who are performing other restoration work.
Just like we use brushes, vacuums, and dry sponges to remove a large amount of soot from interior structures like walls and cabinet doors, we can use similar methods for many items that require attention to detail. Portrait frames with deep grooves can suffer corrosion and discoloration when soot remains embedded for too long. While we clean, we also take note of any bubbling or other effects caused by heat.
Sometimes, we need to apply cleansers in a wet or damp cleaning method to rid items of the blackened mess that mars their finish. Ceramic-coated tubs and windows are two examples. When we restore things that we can safely wash while submerging the item in water, we can use ultrasonic cleaning machinery.
The tiny waves produced inside an ultrasonic machine form bubbles in the water. These act much like the bubbles in hydrogen peroxide at lifting foreign substances from the surfaces of the item placed in the machine. Ultrasonic cleaning does not require any soap or detergent and does not bleach anything like hydrogen peroxide might.
Because it uses no foaming agents, rinsing is never required. We need to dry the items cleaned this way and return them to you. We can clean jewelry, stuffed toys, ceramic and porcelain pieces, and many other things. The results often surprise our customers with how well it works, even in tiny grooves and other areas that brushes barely reach.
SERVPRO of Kankakee County can help you restore not only your Bonfield, Aroma Park, or Momence house after fire damage happens, but also your personal belongings. Call us at (815) 935-0077, so we can help your family recover faster.
