SERVPRO Combines Various Cleaning Procedures Saving Heavily Soiled Carpets

After a fire at your Willimantic office is contained, you have to embark on the restoration process. Tearing down destroyed materials and cleaning up soiled areas are the crucial restoration processes. Cleaning has extra benefits since it minimizes costs.

Before attempting fire cleanup at your Willimantic office, it is essential to consider its likely effectiveness. Otherwise, you might waste resources and incur some costs only to end up tearing down the materials when cleaning does not resolve the problem. Our SERVPRO fire restoration technicians can help you evaluate the situation and also carry out the cleaning where deemed necessary.

Evaluation of carpeted floors helps establish the soiling issues, which might include:

  • Accumulation of soot
  • Residues of firefighting chemicals
  • Strong odor
  • Moisture absorption

Cleaning is helpful when soiling is the problem. Therefore, if the evaluation reveals other issues such as delamination or charring, cleanup may not be a viable solution. Removing fire residues and other soils from the carpeted floors at your office requires several procedures to restore preloss conditions. 

A typical cleaning exercise involves: 

  • Pretesting
  • Spot cleaning
  • Deep cleaning 

Pretesting helps establish the fabric type and the soils left by the fire, including dry soot, ash, and wet or greasy residues. It also helps establish whether the soils are vastly spread or localized in specific areas. Where we find localized problems, our SERVPRO technicians use spot cleaning to deal with the affected areas before doing general cleaning. 

Vast sections of your carpeted floor can be heavily soiled, especially when people move around fighting the fire or inspecting the loss. Alternatively, moisture can worsen the soiling from the loose residues that spread during the fire. SERVPRO technicians combat such deep and widespread soiling with various advanced techniques, including bonnet cleaning. 

SERVPRO of Norwich and Windham County manage fire cleanup professionally, eliminating traces of soiling, “Like it never even happened.” Call us at (860) 887-0447.
