The three most common causes of property fires are from cooking mishaps, dryers, and electrical shortages. Even after the flames are gone there can be permanent damage left behind in the form of soot and other smoke particles. It is important to act fast, as the acidic properties of the particles left behind will begin etching certain materials in as little as twenty-four hours. Materials, such as plastics, can become permanently discolored just as quickly.
It is important to let Triad STOP Restoration assess the specific needs of your loss as the treatment can vary based on the cause and origin of the damages. There are a variety of cleaning and deodorization methods used depending on the type of fire as well as the type of material being cleaned. Knowing the right method of cleaning to pair with the type of smoke and the material being cleaned is crucial to getting the desired results. Cleaning the contents portion of a loss can be as big if not bigger than cleaning the structure and trying to handle this task on your own can be daunting if not impossible.
Smoke losses often require more extensive cleaning than other losses because nearly everything in the home or business can be affected. This type of cleaning is also tedious and time-consuming due to the nature of smoke particles. The smoke particles are almost microscopic and settle into the smallest nooks and crannies found on furniture, wall decorations, and anything else found in the home or business. Some items may need to be completely disassembled in order to clean the interior components. After the smoke and soot is removed, deodorization may be needed to remove any remaining odors. The sooner contents are cleaned and deodorized the better the overall outcome will be.
