Cleanup and Debris Removal
The debris left behind by a fire can range from charred remains of belongings to structural damage. Removing waste is critical in preparing the space for reconstruction and addresses safety concerns. Our IICRC-certified teams meticulously sort through the debris and categorize items based on how to clean them. SERVPRO makes every effort to recover and restore sentimental items like family heirlooms or important documents.
Removal of smoke residues often progresses top-down to ensure thorough restoration and minimal recontamination. Additionally, if contents are present in the space, we hold them to the center of the room and cover them with protective sheeting during cleaning.
A breakdown of the systematic approach
- Ceiling cleaning
- Wall cleaning
- Onsite content cleaning
- Floor cleaning
Ceiling cleaning is typically the first step in the process. Soot and smoke residues often settle on the ceiling due to the upward movement of hot air during a fire. SERVPRO crews use specialized cleaning techniques, like dry cleaning methods and chemical solutions, to eliminate smoke residues from the ceiling surfaces.
