How SERVPRO Finishes DIY Fire Damage Cleanings Job in Wilmington
Wilmington Fire Damage Gets Cleaned Up for Good the Second Time Around
Many, many DIY projects are great to do around your home, but one of them you should never do is clean up fire damage on your own. Sounds simple enough, see smoke, wipe it away. Burn something in a pan or the oven, not too much visible smoke residue to clean up, wipe the kitchen and done.
Moreover, then a pungent odor from the fire damage in your Wilmington home begins to grow. Worse, you can smell it in other areas of the house that were initially affected by the fire. That is when you should call in a professional restoration services company to eliminate residual smoke damage to your property.
When you need follow-up after a DIY cleanup, it is vital to bring in a restoration services company that has both the training and equipment to neutralize smoke odors. They should eliminate cross-contamination of soot in the home. This company should also be able to clean the HVAC ductwork if necessary.
Special Attention to Protein Fires
When proteins burn in a pan or within an oven, there often is not much in the way of visible dark smoke residue that you expect to see. The protein strands combust and turn into a fine mist that spreads over surfaces and has a powerful odor. However, it is nearly invisible and challenging to clean. SERVPRO technicians use professional-strength solutions to clean all surfaces, including walls and floors, to ensure no protein residues get left behind.
Odor Control is Vital
The scent left by a protein fire is not one that a wall plug-in air freshener has the power to remove. It has the potential to spread throughout the home. This smoke requires elimination by both cleaning and neutralizing airborne particles at the molecular level using equipment such as hydroxyl generators and thermal fogging to reach odors within porous objects.
