Seeing your beloved home charred beyond recognition after a fire incident can be heart-breaking for any homeowner. Hiring professionals like SERVPRO for the fire restoration of your Gaithersburg home can help you put this traumatic incident behind you.

SERVPRO techs use several techniques, products, and pieces of equipment to clean the soot and smoke damage during fire restoration of your Gaithersburg home. The approach used depends on the extent of the damage, the type of smoke residue, and the surface involved. We use a combination of temperature, agitation, and chemical action to clean various surfaces.  

How do SERVPRO Techs Eliminate Tough Smoke and Soot Residue During House Fire Cleanup at Gaithersburg? 

Eliminating tough and oily residue after fire damage to your Gaithersburg can be a difficult task. SERVPRO techs rely on their knowledge of chemistry to deal with such difficult residues. In most cases, agents that can cause chemical alteration of the debris are used while cleaning harsh residues. 

Enzymes are often used to eliminate protein residues that are difficult to remove using traditional cleaning agents. Enzymes are biomolecules that break down the soils into simple water-soluble substances that are removable with detergents. As enzymes are effective over a narrow pH range, the SERVPRO techs maintain a neutral pH during their use. 

Bleaching agents also work by changing the chemical nature of the soils by either oxidizing them (oxidizing bleaches) or reducing them (reducing bleaches). The goal is to convert a water-insoluble residue to a water-soluble one so that it can easily wash away.
