Only A Professionals Should Clean Smoke Damage From A Fire, this is way you should call us, We have over 32 years in the cleaning business.
The danger has passed, but without a professionals to help clean up the smoke damage, the building will never be return to normal.
The principles behind fire restoration are not a fairly simple task, it requires a lot of experience and manpower to perform the duties and require adequate training and this means that it shouldn’t be attempted by a homeowner on his or her own.
While fire is over and out, once it is gone, what it leaves behind will continue to affect the house. Ash and smoke, will cause extensive corrosion, etching and discoloration, not to mention lingering odors.
A Professional cleaning company that clean fire and smoke damage can stop this before it becomes a major problem, assuming we are contacted soon enough.
There are many companies out there that advertise their ability to restore areas affected by fire, and claim they have proper training and certification to do this services, but only employee people, we at Schuh’s Services stand behind our workmanship.
We are professionals that can clean smoke damage and restore items affected by a fire, and have been doing so for over 30 years. We must be called to the site as soon as possible to halt the ongoing issues that ash residue can cause.
The ash from a fire in your home will discolor and damage most surfaces.
Anything made of plastic or was close to the fire will start discoloring within minutes, fiberglass and finishes on appliances will begin to yellow in most cases . Metals may also tarnish, the ash will cause walls to discolor permanently, along with clothing and upholstery. Wood and vinyl will need to be refinished or replaced, and metal will start corroding.
If a good professional cleaning company isn’t hired to clean smoke and fire damage, the costs for restoration will skyrocket.
Metals may need to be replaced, carpet will permanently discolor and glass may be severely etched, which will necessitate replacement. It will also become apparent that the odors caused by the disaster may still be present and intense enough to be distracting. Because ash is acidic, the longer it takes to hire experts, the more destruction it will cause.
The first thing a trained professional company will do when on site is to identify all affected materials and remove if necessary. A cleaning company must properly clean smoke and fire damage and be extremely thorough. Ash residue is easily disturbed and can spread through the building with ease, causing nearly everything to need restoration and cleaned.
The experts will identify what can and cannot be salvaged, Once this is done, the restorers will clean with a specialized detergents that are formulated for neutralizing this kind of odor.
This entire process is very detailed, and hiring a professional that can be trusted to do the job right is very important.
Air Scrubbers are a very necessary part of many renovation
and restoration job sites. When dealing
with Category 1, Category 2 or Category 3 contaminated water an Air Scrubber should
be considered mandatory
. Quite often
contractors will complain that insurance adjusters refuse to pay the rental
fees for running this equipment. The
fact is that in most cases the contractor does not educate or explain the
reasons to the adjuster why this equipment is necessary. It is important to remember that the safety
of the inhabitants of the home or commercial building far supersedes the lack
of education or understanding of an adjuster as to why this equipment is
necessary. Another question that should
always be addressed during a water loss is whether there is the potential for
lead or asbestos in the scope of the project.
Are there any very young, elderly or immune compromised individuals
living or working within the structure?
Again, there may be multiple reasons to explain the justification for
the use of an Air Scrubber....or multiple Air Scrubbers.
What about a Fire, Smoke Damage or Mold Project? The use of multiple Air Scrubbers during
these types are not only standard protocol but when used in conjunction with
activated charcoal filters can be an outstanding tool for removing soot and
smoke damage odors quickly and effectively.
Air Scrubbers come in a variety of sizes and styles.
Remember, it is important to know the cubic feet of air
space to be treated. A minimum of three
air changes per hour is required for effective treatment.
