SERVPRO - Cleaning And Restoring Burley Homes After Fire Damage
Burley residents have a rich history tied to the Westward Expansion. That does not prevent fires and other disasters from striking area houses, apartments, and condos, however.
Burley residents with fire damage need an experienced, trained, and well-equipped service to return their home to its pre-fire condition. SERVPRO restoration teams train to meet industry standards for removal, cleaning, restoring, and repairing both personal and structural property.
The physical damage from heat and flames is, fortunately, often limited to only one or two rooms. Affected personal property usually requires disposal either directly from the damage, or because it is more cost-effective to replace the item rather than expend the labor and materials to attempt a repair.
For structural property damage, SERVPRO team efforts depend on the material. Wall paneling, ceiling tiles, and floor or ceiling trim burn or warp quickly. Sturdier material like wall framing and other, wood supports resist open flames better, so our technicians can often sand down the affected surfaces to forego replacement.
What pervades the structure and can affect every exposed item are the residues left behind by smoke and soot. For many residential fires, cleaning up and restoring property is the major cost in labor, cleaning agents, and equipment.
If the fire burned quickly and was very hot, most of the residues left are powdery and easier for our technicians to clean using sponges, brushes, and cleaning cloths. For thick layers, they may use a spray bottle with a mild cleaning agent to break up the layers for easier removal.
When fires burn slowly, and at comparatively low temperatures, the residues are often very sticky and more difficult to remove. Team members use scrub brushes and powered agitators with stronger cleaning agents to break up the residue layers and remove them from the property without harming the surface. If the residues remained on the property long enough to pit or stain the surface, then disposal is usually the more cost-efficient option.
