Commercial Fire Damage Specialists In Stockton Talk About Basic Cleaning Principles

Kitchen blazes are one of the most common types of insurance claims in the Stockton area. This means that it is possible that someday your bakery could suffer from commercial fire damage. Once an inferno starts, it can cause a variety of different problems. The heat and flames can torch your building materials and contents, and the smoke coming from the burnt materials can create other issues.

Our SERVPRO fire and smoke restoration technicians or FSTs know that a significant portion of projects involves the cleaning of soot residues and other soils created by smoke. During any commercial fire damage situation in Stockton, we can use many different tools and techniques to remove soot from the surfaces of your building materials, contents, and structural components. Cleaning items coated in soot residue is much more cost-effective than having to replace the item. 

When removing soot residues and soils, our SERVPRO FSTs utilize several industrial cleaning principles. The first step is to locate all of the smoke residues by carefully inspecting the affected area. We then identify the different types of residues found in your house. We then figure out the type of surfaces that got affected. The methods we use to clean items in your building will vary depending on the types of surfaces and soot residues present.

Once we know what methods will work best, we capture and remove the residues. The soils created by the smoke bond to the surfaces they contact. We use dry and wet cleaning processes to release and carry residue particles away from the affected surfaces. We then dispose of the debris and the cleaning waste.

When cleaning, there are a few fundamental elements that must be involved. First off, the temperature of the surface plays a major role in how easy something can be cleaned. Heat can increase the speed of chemical reactions in most cleaning products.

For most soils to get released, some form of agitation must occur. Our FSTs use towels, brushes, or air and water pressure to help dislodge residues. Soils also get released by chemical reactions taking place. Cleaning detergents chemically react with the soil molecules to make them less adhesive.
