SERVPRO Offers Fast, Reliable, and Efficient Fire Damage Restoration to Gaithersburg Homes

Cleaning the fire and the smoke residue is one of the primary challenges facing SERVPRO restorers during fire damage restoration of your Gaithersburg home. An understanding of the behavior of fire and smoke helps SERVPRO restorers to overcome this challenge.  

SERVPRO technicians use several methods backed by scientific evidence to clean residue during fire damage restoration of your Gaithersburg home. Not all fires are one in the same, and neither is the residue that is left behind. Successful smoke remediation is contingent on experts using the right cleaning strategy based on residue and the surface affected. SERVPRO experts use various cleaning agents to remove the smoke damage by enzymatically breaking down or oxidizing the residue. However, removing the water stains and the rust that can develop due to over-wetting material poses a unique challenge during fire-fighting efforts.

Cleaning Methods SERVPRO Uses During House Fire Cleanup in Gaithersburg 

Apart from the residue due to smoke and soot, a fire-damaged home might also have water damage from the water used by the fire-fighters. SERVPRO experts use the following strategy in Gaithersburg homes to clean it-

  • Water Stains- Seen on fabrics as ‘brown spots’ caused by over-wetting or slow water evaporation. To remove them, SERVPRO uses peroxide water stain remover. It chemically interacts with detergent to slowly liberate hydrogen peroxide, which oxidizes the stain and removes it. 
  • Rust Stains- We use a solution of oxalic-phosphorus acid solution to remove rust. It has a pH of 2 and dissolves rust stains on cotton, linen, silk, wool, synthetic fibers, and carpeting.
