Mount Kisco Homeowners Trust SERVPRO with Fire Restoration   

Cleaning and restoration can reduce the cost of a fire damage claim and are much cheaper than replacing and resurfacing. However, fire restoration in your Mount Kisco home must happen fast to be effective. The smoke and soot particles can continue to damage the surfaces if not quickly removed using appropriate methods. 

SERVPRO techs apply scientifically backed principles and elements of cleaning during the fire restoration of your Mount Kisco home. We aim to quickly remove the soot particles from surfaces and return the structure and contents to their preloss condition. 

Cleaning Actions to Remove Smoke and Soot from Fire-Damaged Homes 

The objective of SERVPRO fire restoration experts during restorative cleaning is to break the bonds between the soils and the surfaces. As the soot particles tend to form strong bonds with the affected surfaces, SERVPRO techs need to use the combination of the following four cleaning actions:

  • Mechanical action
  • Lubrication
  • Chemical action
  • Suspension and dispersion

The mechanical action involves dislodging the soot from the surfaces using abrasion. These methods are best to remove loosely attached, dry residue from surfaces. However, if the bonds between the soot and surface are strong, restorers must break them by chemically altering the soot particles. SERVPRO techs use oxidizing or reducing bleaches for this purpose.   

The Role of Solvents in Fire Damage Restoration 

SERVPRO techs use solvents to dissolve the soot particles or suspend them to remove them easily from the surfaces. Oily residues that are difficult to remove using mechanical or chemical action are often dissolved, dispersed, or emulsified in an appropriate solvent cleaner for easy removal.
