Most fabrics readily combust when exposed to heat and flames, resulting in total damage. However, since flames might not reach every section of your home before the incident is contained, partial damage such as soiling is also possible. Fire damage restoration is possible in such cases, albeit with some challenges. 

Although you might be used to cleaning various fabrics in your Suffern home, fire damage restoration cleaning in Suffern may be challenging to execute on the same materials. The difficulties may arise because of the type of fabric or what it is attached to. The types of soils also matter since fire produces a wide range of residues, including greasy ones. SERVPRO starts by evaluating your property, locating the fabrics, and establishing the best way to perform the restoration.

The fabrics that need restoration in a house include:

  • Beddings
  • Wallcoverings
  • Furniture covers
  • Carpets 

Using different approaches is crucial for the best outcomes when cleaning fabrics. The first step is removing dry soils, which comprise over 70% of the soils in the fabrics. Using dry removal methods such as vacuuming or dry cleaning sponge is essential since dry soils are easily removed when dry. Using dry cleaning sponges is more effective for fire-damaged fabrics compared to vacuums.

Wet cleaning is also essential when dealing with fabrics. Our SERVPRO technicians improve efficiency by manipulating the elements of cleaning to combat different aspects of the soiling.

The main elements of cleaning are:

By boosting any of the elements, our technicians can improve the outcome. For instance, heating the cleaning solution removes certain soils faster. Better agitation and the use of superior chemical agents also help.
