Fire Damage Professionals In Tallahassee Talk About Basic Cleaning Principles

If a fire ever starts on your property in Tallahassee, there are various problems that could take place. Fire damage can exist in various forms, including burnt materials and soot residues. Many times structural blazes get put out with water which can create other issues. Adding moisture to the situation can create moisture-related issues, including soot getting soaked deeper into your building materials.

Luckily, our SERVPRO fire damage technicians in Tallahasse have vast amounts of experience in mitigating various types of problems. Our highly trained team provides fast 24/7 service so that we can start restoring your structure immediately after the burn takes place. We also have at our disposal advanced technology and techniques that help us be successful when attempting to return your house to its previous state, “Like it never even happened.”

Our fire and smoke restoration technicians or FSTs at SERVPRO know that cleaning soot residues and soils can be a significant portion of your restoration project. Most cleaning procedures involve either changing or altering the soils or residues. Our FSTs frequently use the following chemicals to clean and remove soot residues and other stains.

1. Enzymes
Enzymes are living organisms. They digest protein soils like starch, dairy products, perspiration, body discharges, blood, eggs, and fish slime.

2. Bleaching Agents
Bleaching works by chemically altering a stain to reverse the coloration of a stain.

3. Removing Water Stains
Our SERVPRO FSTs often use a peroxide-based water stain remover called Brown Out.  Brown Out produces a chemical change to remove “browning” caused by overwetting or slow drying of fabrics or carpets.

4. Removing Rust
When removing rust stains, we frequently use a strong acid chemical called rusticide. This strong acid has a pH of 2 and dissolves rust stains on cotton, linen, silk, wool, synthetic fibers, and carpeting.

5. Deodorizing Through Chemical Changes
Ozone is a colorless pale blue gas consisting of highly volatile O3 molecules. When ozone molecules contact odor-causing molecules, they oxidize the odor molecules, neutralizing them and breaking them down to smaller, less offensive materials.
