The Ultimate Guide to Fire Damage Remediation in Your Brookhaven Home
Cleaning Your Brookhaven Property after a Fire Damage Experience Counts
Several problems that negatively affect our properties result when we experience fire damage incidents. Since most of the homeowners are not experts or do not have specialized restoration equipment to restore their property, it is necessary to work with professionals to reduce further damage and get your home or business back to its feet. Some of the areas that the fire ruins and renders them not fit for work includes countertops, cabinets, and walls. We are going to look at some of the processes that experienced restoration professional in Brookhaven use when attending to your property.
Our SERVPRO technicians can clean your cabinets, lighting fixtures, insulation and attics in your home during fire damage restoration in Brookhaven. Cabinets can be unfinished or finished, and that helps us to come up with an appropriate cleaning method. It means we have to start with an inspection, which helps us determine whether there was any preexisting damage and document everything before the cleaning process starts. The interior of most cabinets is typically unfinished wood, so, we use a dry cleaning sponge to remove the smoke residues. Some cases may force us to use sanding to remove the stubborn smoke particles.
We have to clean the lighting fixtures when we are cleaning the ceiling area. Our SERVPRO team turns off electrical power before cleaning these appliances. If we are not sure whether the cleaning solutions can affect the fixture's finish, we can start by pretesting. We understand that soot settles behind the light fixtures because of the lower temperatures of such areas. We use hand washing when the residues at the site are light to moderate; otherwise, we may decide to use the low-pressure steam cleaning technique. If we had to disassemble the chandelier when cleaning, we have to reassemble it back at the end of the cleaning process.
Generally, it costs less to restore your contents when compared to what you have to spend when refinishing or replacing. Since we have to dispose of the waste at the end of the cleaning process, we have to abide by the state and local regulations.
