Expert Restorers Can Help You Handle the Fire Damage in Your Covina Residence Efficiently

After a structural fire, what usually comes to the mind of property owners is the devastation that the flames cause. However, smoke can also be just as harmful to a house as the blaze. Many of the compounds of smoke are acidic, toxic, or odor-causing.

Smoke and soot residues can cause surfaces like walls, ceilings, and upper cabinets to look blackened and burned. Cleaning up your Covina home after fire damage can be challenging. Smoke residues can attach to soft goods, furniture, and carpeting, among other surfaces, and they can be difficult to remove. Smoke particles travel through ductwork and the open air. They can get far from the areas where the flames affected and settle mostly in cooler areas such as behind draperies and inside building cavities.

Proper fire damage cleanup and restoration is a technical effort that gets more difficult with time, even for professional restorers because smoke’s compounds penetrate more deeply into affected surfaces. One of the things that SERVPRO technicians do during the fire restoration process is to protect individuals from toxins. Our team can set up isolation barriers between ruined and occupied areas, use fans to ventilate the home and wear personal protective gear like goggles, nitrile gloves, respirators, face masks, and full clothing to stay safe. We can take some steps to restore your property to its pre-damaged condition, including:

Physical cleaning
Our Fire & Smoke Damage Restoration Technicians (FSRTs) can physically remove smoke residues from hard surfaces using dry or wet cleaning procedures depending on the type of affected surface and the residues present. We can also use specialized alkaline detergents to clean curtains and clothing. If there are smoke residues in finished wood surfaces like chairs, dressers, and tables, our technicians can use wood oil soaps to remove them.

Odor removal
When materials burn, they produce different odors. It is necessary to use specialized cleaning equipment and strategies to ensure effective removal of the smells. Our SERVPRO team often combines several deodorization techniques to produce the desired results. We can use water-based odor counteractants to neutralize odors.   These products can mix with water instantly in various dilution ratios and applications. We add them to cleaning solutions to control smoke smells and other unpleasant odors. Another process we rely on to remove smells is thermal fogging.
