Attention to Detail Is Why SERVPRO Effectively Cleans Raleigh Fire-Damaged Hardwood

When a fire moves through your Raleigh home, the harm done to walls and ceiling feels overwhelming, but drywall and ceiling tile replacement is relatively straightforward if restoration is impractical. The heartbreaking sight of sooty hardwood floors, cabinetry, and furnishings is another matter. Our technicians learn a broad range of strategies to clean hardwood during restoration-focused training courses, why we can bring most furniture, floors, and built-ins back to preloss condition.

Finish Matters

The first question we pursue when hardwood sustains fire damage in Raleigh is what type of finishes are involved. Depending on the age and construction of the furnishings, different finishes are present. Cleaning methods vary based on the finish. Our training and experience prepare our crews for likely restoration outcomes, why we start by determining whether the finish is:

  • Varnish
  • Shellac
  • Lacquer
  • Paint
  • Waxes 
  • Oils
  • Unfinished

Level of Damage Matters

We strive to be transparent in communications with you and your insurer, why SERVPRO is candid about the impact of significant fire damage on restoration potential. Cleaning works best if the integrity of the finish and wood's surface shows a limited extent of harm. Refinishing, repair, and replacement might enter the picture if we note the following damage:

Blistering -- this effect occurs when the surfaces affected were close to the heat, warping and cracking the finish and allowing soot to penetrate under the finish.

Staining -- this effect occurs if after blistering or other fire-related harm wet or protein-based soot infiltrates the wood.

Preferred Hardwood Cleaning Methods

Dry Cleaning -- used for unsealed or unfinished wood or where the residues are dry and ashy.

Details: Examples include feather or cloth dusting, dry sponges, and vacuuming.

Wet Cleaning -- Appropriate for moderate levels of wet or sticky soot using low alkali cleaners or mild detergents. 

Details: We move cloth or sponge in the direction of the wood grain, and apply oil-based furniture polish to replenish the wood's natural oils.

Semi-Refinishing -- Thick or adhesive residues might need a solvent-based cleaner that lifts off the uppermost layer of finish.

Details: We apply proprietary paste cleaners for a short dwell time (fewer than five minutes), and then remove with a soft, dry cloth, always wiping in the direction of the grain.  

Commitment to best restoration practices and the most effective products are why SERVPRO of North Raleigh & Wake Forest can return the beauty of your hardwood furnishings. Call (919) 790-1222 day or night for our professional assessment.

fire damaged kitchen Fire damage and its related odors can seem to linger for a very long time. Contact SERVPRO for effective remediation services and odor removal.

Why SERVPRO Succeeds in Raleigh Post Fire Damage Deodorization

A most frustrating effects of a house fire in Raleigh is the odor that can endure long after all signs of charring and soot are cleaned up, and your home looks as it did before the blaze. We learn in the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) training that each individual perceives smells differently, complicating matters for both you, members of your family, and our technicians. This unique way of experiencing the issue is why we are patient when addressing odors.

An Art as Well as a Science

The trick to eliminating fire damage odors in Raleigh is protocol, practice, and perseverance, why we invest in training and innovative products and equipment. We follow a procedure when seeking out and eliminating odors, repeating steps, and changing strategies until success. 

The Odor-Elimination Framework

Consistency is adhering to a proven protocol, ensuring that we do not miss a straightforward solution. This theory is why SERVPRO starts smoke and soot odor remediation by following with the below agenda.

  • Remove the odor source and debris
  • Deep-clean surfaces
  • Recreate the conditions that resulted in odors penetrating
  • Seal surfaces that continue to emit malodors

Debris and Deep Cleaning

If any charred and residue-covered debris remains, chances are high they continue to give off an odor. This persistence is why SERVPRO technicians go over your home with a fine-toothed comb more than once, looking for missed items. Checking in hidden recesses and taking on the next step, deep cleaning, with vigor can make the difference. We also try options like the placement of masking and absorbent agents as we discover spaces where odors are high to try to turn the deodorizing corner.

Recreating and Adapting Conditions

The most commonly discussed “recreation” strategy is thermal fogging. We combust deodorants at a high temperature to minimize their size, with the hope of having the small particles seek out and pair with the odiferous bits still airborne or settle. The pairing neutralizes the smell by changing the chemical composition of the molecules. Slight different science underlies ozone machines or hydroxyl generators that produce invisible particles that find and alter or break up the bonds between soot particles and the bad smells.

Sealing as a Last Resort

Some porous surfaces absorb and retain the odors despite all other efforts, why SERVPRO eventually recommends using a sealant to trap the odors inside. Although not the first choice, sealing works well when demolition and replacement is not an option.

Our investment in employee training and up to date equipment is why SERVPRO of North Raleigh & Wake Forest delivers post-fire damage deodorization success. Have confidence that one call to (919) 790-1222 is the first step toward eliminating malodors.

Let the Professionals Aid in Your Raleigh Home Remediation Plans

When a catastrophe happens in your home you need to call the remediation specialists at SERVPRO for help immediately.

Learn How SERVPRO Helps Local Raleigh Homeowners with Restoration Services

It can happen at any time of the day or night whether you are snug in your Raleigh home or at work or on vacation. Damage to your home occurring from fire, water, storms or even mold quietly growing undetected. No matter what type of loss has happened in your property, SERVPRO has the expertise and equipment to return your home to its preloss condition. 

Why SERVPRO? We know you have choices for restoration companies. We are part of the local community and take pride in supporting our friends and neighbors when they need assistance with cleanup from fire, water, or mold. Our technicians undergo extensive training and learn the best practices for mitigation as taught through the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC). This organization is considered the highest standard of quality in the restoration sciences industry. We work hard on every site with a goal to always restore rather than replace items. This mindset saves property owners the cost of replacement for things that might otherwise get counted as a loss.

Mold damage in Raleigh homes requires fast remediation. Mold relies on stealth to remain undisturbed. Each spore only needs warmth, steady humidity, and food such as wood, paper or sheetrock to maintain a colony that, once established, tends to spread rapidly. 

Many homeowners first discover mold from a musty smell that does not diminish no matter how much air freshener gets sprayed in the room. The key with mold remediation first and foremost is containment. When SERVPRO mitigates mold damage in a home, we first identify any areas of excessive moisture. These areas are likely to host mold colonies, and then our technicians contain those areas to stop spores from reaching other areas of the home. 

Dryness is the enemy of mold. It cannot exist when humidity levels average below 45%. Our technicians carefully take readings in the home until the affected areas verify less than optimum moisture levels to ensure the colonies cannot regenerate. 

Once dried, our certified Applied Microbial Remediation Technicians remove the mold. We accomplish this using gentle hand-scraping, or for stuck-on infestations, the use of lightly abrasive soda blasting is a highly effective method. After removal, we commonly apply an antimicrobial sealer to halt any regrowth.

Water damage in a Raleigh residence emanates from many sources. Any of the plumbing in the home has the potential to leak. Appliances such as dishwashers, washing machines, or the supply line to the water and ice maker in your fridge tend to give out over time.

When SERVPRO answers a call for water cleanup, we know the longer the premises remains wet, the more damage that happens. We arrive on-site quickly with every piece of equipment we require in our green service vans. Our certified Water Restoration Technicians scope the residence with our moisture detection equipment such as:

  • Non-Penetrating Meters: These detectors have two sensors and compare levels of moisture for anything between the two points and assist our technicians in determining exactly where moisture absorption begins and ends.
  • Penetrating Meters: Have surface-penetrating prongs that identify trapped moisture under the surface.
  • Hydrosensors: A penetrating meter that measures moisture within porous surfaces such as carpet or padding.
  • Thermo-Hygrometers: This type of detector measures both temperature and humidity within the water loss area, and assists our technicians in determining drying goals.

This advanced technology ensures we locate every possible place water migrated for thorough extraction. We have specialized equipment to assist in the mitigation of water damaged carpeting or upholstery, so there is a higher chance of restorability. 

Thorough dryness is paramount to halting secondary water damage issues such as buckling sheetrock, warped hardwood floorboards, or mold. Using our thermo-hygrometers, SERVPRO technicians carefully set drying goals that are unique to each location. No residence has zero percent humidity. Some air moisture is vital for air quality, but it should not be enough to allow mold spores to germinate.

After thoroughly cleaning and disinfecting the water loss areas, we give the homeowner a detailed report of the actions taken during mitigation as well as any repairs necessary. 

When a Raleigh home has storm damage, we act quickly to begin water cleanup. Often by the time our emergency response teams arrive, in many cases, the water has receded or wicked into sheetrock, disappeared within wall cavities and requires speedy removal. 

SERVPRO technicians tarp over any damaged areas of the home to prevent any further water from entering the property during mitigation. We then perform water extraction and controlled demolition techniques such as flood cuts as needed to save as much of the structure as possible. 

If our technicians are unable to clean and restore water-damaged items on-site, we pack them out for in-plant cleaning on a case by case basis. After water removal and drying the home, we then thoroughly disinfect the property, so it is safe and healthy for habitation. 

Fire damage in Raleigh homes ranges in size from a small corner of a kitchen with charring and smoke damage due to a hot pan catching aflame to an entire home destroyed by an intense fire where the best outcome is to prepare the property for reconstruction.

Soot travels quickly, and airborne particles can easily be smaller than the human eye can see. SERVPRO technicians install airlock barriers or use heavy plastic sheeting over doorways and vents to contain the work site area. Removal of smoke residues requires testing it to determine the type of fire that left the residue and the proper kind of cleaning method for the best outcome. Improper cleaning of soot and smoke residues has the potential to cause further damage. 

After fire debris removal and cleaning, our technicians concentrate on odor removal. We have several types of specialized equipment for odor control as fire loss often leaves behind significant scents that require a layered-approach to complete odor eradication. When SERVPRO technicians complete fire loss mitigation, we leave behind no residual reminders within the property.

When home disasters strike, contact SERVPRO of North Raleigh & Wake Forest at (919) 790-1222. Our emergency response teams stand ready 24/7 to support our local community with assistance mitigating fire, water, storm or mold damage and make it "Like it never even happened."

Remediating Raleigh Fire Damage Can Be Complicated

Raleigh House Fire? Call SERVPRO for a Stress-Free Cleanup and Restoration

SERVPRO Carefully Manages Restoration Services After a Fire

Cleaning up a Raleigh home after a fire is directed at the big items. First efforts are to examine the structural property and determine what is needed to restore floors, ceilings, and walls. That is where much of the restoration cost comes from, but it is not everything. 
 
To completely remediate the effects of fire damage in Raleigh homes; a professional restoration company looks at every item in the home. SERVPRO understands that the items most important to a homeowner are rarely ever walls and ceilings. It is the personal touches like light fixtures and in rooms like the kitchen or living area made by the owners. 
 
Kitchen cabinets are among the first personal choices made by a homeowner. The exteriors are usually covered with a clear varnish to emphasize the appearance of the wood, so we remove the handles and back plates to examine the entire surface and then use a mild cleaning agent to remove smoke and soot residues. 
 
Interiors are usually unfinished or exposed wood. Our first action is to wipe them down with a dry sponge. That normally removes the residue, but for thicker layers, we wipe down each panel and shelf with a wet sponge dipped in denatured alcohol. If the soot has penetrated the surface, we use sandpaper to remove it. 
 
Accents in the living room help define a homeowner’s style. We use special detergents and washing machines to clean curtains and drapes, but we also take care of the drapery rods and valances as well. SERVPRO IICRC certified technicians remove them from the walls and wipe down every piece of hardware. Then, they spray silicon on them to protect from future damage. We thoroughly clean the walls before rehanging them. 
 
Light fixtures in both rooms and throughout the house are not just personal, but can also be very expensive to replace. To clean them completely, we remove them from walls and ceilings and use as mild a cleaning agent as possible to prevent staining any metal finishes or etching glass covers. 
 
Restoring a home means more than just cleaning the carpets and wiping smoke damage from the walls and ceilings. SERVPRO of North Raleigh & Wake Forest understands that our customers want to return to their home, and not just a house. If you need our help, call (919) 790-1222 today.

Water Loss in Your Raleigh Home? Why Not call SERVPRO for Professional Cleanup and Drying?

Why SERVPRO Combines Advanced Skills and Equipment during Water Cleanup in Raleigh

Water loss can happen at any time since water plays a significant role in day-to-day life. The steps you take after noticing the loss play a significant role in determining the outcome of the incident. Among the steps that should be prioritized is cleanup. Cleaning up the affected area helps remove standing water and any soiling or debris from the incident. We are IICRC certified, so we offer highly skilled teams and use state-of-the-art equipment to restore your Raleigh home.

An exercise of water cleanup in Raleigh should address both current and future problems. In most cases, the current problem is making the affected areas habitable again. Extracting any standing water and drying contents should help make the area habitable. Our SERVPRO technicians use advanced equipment such as dry-wet vacs and truck-mounted water extractors to remove water fast from all affected areas. The water extractors have pumping and vacuum capabilities, which allows collection of standing water and extraction from soggy materials such as carpets.

Extraction removes most of the water. However, a significant percentage remains as moisture, which is more stubborn to deal with especially when involving materials like wood. This moisture is also likely to cause long-term problems if not adequately addressed. Our SERVPRO technicians tap into their Applied Structural Drying skills to overcome challenges in the drying phase. In addition to using advanced drying equipment such as air movers and dehumidifiers, we also use unique approaches. For example, when drying hardwood floors, we can seal the damp area with a plastic sheet to control the drying process further preventing issues like the splitting of floorboards.

Water loss incidents can also cause bad odors because of microbial growth or from wastes pushed into concealed spaces. Our SERVPRO technicians rely on their training to identify problem areas where mold can grow, or wastes pushed and remain hidden for long. We clean and deodorize such areas eliminating any odors.

In case of a water loss incident, call SERVPRO of North Raleigh & Wake Forest at (919) 790-1222. We're Faster To Any Size Disaster.

How Water Damage Can Create a Mold Issue in Your Raleigh Home

12/7/2018 (Permalink)

Water damage inside the drywall can cause mold. Call SERVPRO at the first sign of water damage.

Raleigh's Water Damage Experts Discuss How Inject-Dry Systems Are Used

The goal during any water damage situation is to remove moisture as quickly as possible and preferably within 48 hours so that fungi cannot form. When your home in Raleigh gets negatively affected by moisture, professional companies like SERVPRO can help reduce the severity of the issues created. In most cases, we speed up the natural evaporation and drying process by utilizing air movers and dehumidifiers. The air movers create air flow so that water keeps evaporating from wet surfaces while dehumidifiers remove moisture from the air and provide the fans with hot, dry air. However, when certain building materials receive water damage, other measures must be taken to drop moisture levels and prevent mold growth quickly.  

When water leaks into your home, it usually accumulates on the floor first. Then, it soaks into your drywall and starts to wick its way up your walls, possibly causing extensive water damage to your Raleigh residence. If wall cavities get wet, fungi can form on the paper backing of the drywall and the wooden studs to which the drywall is attached. In some scenarios, our SERVPRO technicians cut the drywall a foot or two up from the floor so that air can get pushed into the wall cavity. In other situations, we use advanced technology to dry out the drywall and the wood trapped behind it without tearing up your walls.  

When your walls get wet, we often use injectidry systems to get air behind the drywall material by drilling holes into your drywall. We then connect the tubes coming from the injectidry unit to the holes in the walls so that the machine pushes air into the wall cavity, thus speeding up the drying process. The use of injection drying can save you and your insurance company the cost of replacing a large amount of drywall.  

Our highly trained team always strives hard to provide fast 24/7 service if you ever suffer a property disaster. If you ever notice that your drywall got wet after a water leak, call SERVPRO of North Raleigh & Wake Forest at (919) 790-1222 right away.
