Can Smoke Residues Cause a Lot of Damage?

If not properly cleaned, smoke residues in Santa Rosa Beach homes can destroy many surfaces they touch, including glass, marble, and metal. SERVPRO technicians have the skills and equipment needed to preserve the most furniture and other property possible in each home. 

What Are SERVPRO’s Primary Methods of Cleaning?

Our fire damage cleaning methods fall into two categories: Dry and Wet. Each uses different tools and actions to remove the residues left behind after a house fire.

  • Dry Cleaning – Technicians use feather dusters and dusting cloths to wipe off light-to-medium, non-grease-based residues with no need for water or a cleaning agent. For thicker layers of these residues, technicians can use dry, cleaning sponges or vacuums with special filters to capture and remove larger particulates.
  • Wet Cleaning – Restoration team members use this more aggressive method for moderate-to-heavy residues. Each method requires water, sometimes with a cleaning agent to break down the residue for easier removal. The item may be saturated with a combination of both, depending on the material being cleaned. 

What Are Some of the Common Methods of Wet Cleaning Used? 

  • Spray and Wipe – Technicians apply water or a mix of water and cleaning agent directly to the residue stain with a spray bottle. They then wipe the stain with a white, clean towel and repeat as often as necessary.
  • Abrasive Cleaning – If the surface is rough, such as stone or marble, technicians use a thicker cleaner and hand or powered agitators. It allows them to penetrate the surface as deeply as the residues to remove them. 

To begin the restoration process for your home here or in Miramar Beach, call SERVPRO of N. Okaloosa, Walton, Holmes & Washington Counties at (850) 267-0746 today. We are here to return your residence back to its original, pre-fire condition.
