SERVPRO Techs Can Cleanup Any Size House Fire Damage in a Glendale Property

Fire damage in Glendale properties does not happen equally. Different materials burn at different heat levels and cause different types of residues. SERVPRO technicians have the training to recognize through the smoke damage left behind whether or not they are dealing with cleanup from high heat or lower heat blaze. 

Glendale home fire restoration after a high heat fire can deal with multiple issues during the cleanup process, such as: 

  • Holes in floors from the fire burning through floor joists
  • Temperatures can reach 1100 degrees Fahrenheit that bakes soot onto surfaces
  • Roofing can be badly damaged when the fire occurs in the attic

The technicians make temporary repairs as needed, like tarping over holes in a roof or placing heavy boards over holes in the floor to make the worksite safe. Once the structure is safe to work within, the techs get to work on the home's contents and the building materials to restore as much as possible. 

When an article in the home gets covered in smoke damage, it is not necessarily headed for disposal with no hope of restoration. SERVPRO technicians have specific applications for the removal of baked-on soot residues. One of the most common tactics that the technicians use involves dry ice. This type of ice is made from cooled CO2 formed into pellets that are around minus 109 degrees Fahrenheit. The techs have the equipment to blast these pellets onto surfaces and work much like sand or soda blasting, but dry ice is gentler on surfaces. When the ice hits the soot-covered surface, it reverts to a gaseous state and evaporates, meaning no cleanup from the media used to remove the residues.
