We can help you clean up and repair your home after a fire so that you and your family can get back to your regular lives.
 
When cleaning up after a fire, four elements affect how residues and soils are suspended in our cleaning products – temperature, agitation, chemical action, and time.
 
Heat causes molecules to move faster. The faster they move, the faster the speed of the chemical reaction between cleaning solutions and soils is. Every cleaning product has its temperature that is appropriate. Heat also reduces the tension of water-based solutions, which lets the products to penetrate surfaces and dissolve soils better.
 
Agitation is when the surface being cleaned is moved, or the cleaning solution is moved, or both. SERVPRO techs use agitation to free or dislodge soils. Once we break this bond, we can wash the soils away.
 
Cleaning solutions help us bridge the gap between the water and soil, making the process of cleaning easier. Several chemical reactions are used to get results when removing smoke residues. We use these various chemical actions to break the bond between smoke residues and the surfaces they are clinging to.
 
When it comes to restoration, time refers to dwell time. It is the time we need for soils to dissolve and the chemical action to work. Dwell time varies for different cleaning processes and professional products. Time requirements are based on various factors like the kind of soil, the kind of material, the method of agitation, and the temperature of the cleaning solution.
 
SERVPRO of N. Okaloosa, Walton, Holmes & Washington Counties understands the various factors that affect cleaning up fire damage so we can thoroughly clean your home the right way.
