Fire & Water - Cleanup & Restoration

Contents Cleaning

3/16/2018 (Permalink)

A home fire can be devastating. The most important aspect is that you made it out of your home safely. You will begin asking yourself if some of your belongings can be saved. SERVPRO of McKinney professionals are experts in cleaning your contents after a fire. We can help answer these questions on what is restorable and what is not for you as we walk the property.

The first thing you will have to do is get rid of the water and moisture. Not doing so will cause further secondary damage and allow mold the chance to grow. We have the proper equipment to extract remaining water and air movers and dehumidifiers to properly dry out your structure. Put furniture on wood blocks if possible and hang clothes, draperies and pillows outside to dry. For non-damaged items, content storage is recommended so nothing can cause harm to them. We can help in this process as well.

For clothes, our professionals recommend dry cleaning. Don’t attempt to clean the clothes, draperies and any other textile items yourself as this can cause permanent damage to them and generally will not remove the soot. If salvageable, a restoration expert can remove the soot from your damaged items.

After you get rid of the soot, you will want to get rid of the smoke smell in textiles and throughout the home. Thoroughly vent your home as much as possible. The experts at SERVPRO of McKinney use specialized procedures such as ozone treatment and thermal fogging to effectively remove the smell. We have a ozone room at our warehouse to place your contents in.

Non-porous items are generally easier to clean than porous items. Ultrasonic treatment and high-pressure water are some of the procedures used. Our equipment and specially formulated cleaning products can successfully remove contamination from your belongings and restore them to preloss condition. 

These are a few of the helpful ways you can follow to clean your content after a home fire. The professionals at SERVPRO of McKinney have the proper expertise, tools and equipment to get the job done right and can help with dry cleaning, content cleaning and content storage.
