Using the proper technique for fire damage clean up

Walls and ceilings damaged by smoke and soot Notice the soot staining on the walls. Using household cleaners is not only very time consuming, but may set the staining, making the situation worse

As you may know, September is National Preparedness Month, and, good for you, you have made an emergency kit, full of items in case of emergencies.  You have extra cash, water, medicines, and clothes all stored away in a water proof container.

But, just because it’s in your kit doesn’t mean it’s right for every situation.  For instance, you have a jack in the trunk of your car.  That’s great, but it doesn’t help you put gas in your automobile.  Or maybe you have an electric can opener in your survival pack, but it won’t work in there’s no power.  You need the right instruments for the right situations.

Let’s talk about fire damage clean up for a second.  Having a cleaner like 409 or Mr. Clean handy is wonderful, but if you tried either of these products to remove smoke and soot stains from drywall, you may set the stain permanently.  Or using your regular washing machine to clean heavily smoke-stained fabrics may end up doing the same thing, and ruin the clothing.

SERVPRO Bedford Park/Burbank has the proper protocols and equipment to handle all your fire and smoke issues, from removing smoke staining from drywall to eliminating the smoke smell from enclosed rooms.

Suffered a fire in your home, and not quite sure what to do?  Here’s a suggestion:  call the cleaning and deodorization experts at SERVPRO Bedford Park/Burbank.  708-430-3600.  We will come out, assess the damage, and help you devise a plan to get things back together again.­­­
