How Do I Clean Common Household Items After a Fire in Augusta?
Check Out the Cleaning Strategies Used by SERVPRO to Handle Fire Damage in Your Augusta Home
After a fire, most of the initial focus is on cleaning structures and surfaces. But many household items require special cleaning techniques, strategies, and materials, so you should consider using the advice and help of experts to restore these items.
What is the best way to identify the household items that need special cleaning procedures?
SERVPRO professionals know which items need special attention, and they can help homeowners make a list of these items after suffering fire damage in their Augusta home.
What are some common kitchen items that have to be cleaned?
• Crystal and china
What are some of the special cleaning procedures and products for kitchen items?
One example would be dishes and china; the procedures for these two items are often completely different. Dishes are prone to heat damage, and they should also be cleaned quickly to prevent a residue buildup. China is more delicate and should be cleaned by hand, rather than exposing different pieces to harsh detergents or placing them in an ultrasound machine.
What are some examples from other rooms in the house?
• Decorative items
• Venetian or vertical blinds
• Bathroom fixtures
How are drapes and blinds usually cleaned?
Drapes can be cleaned by hot water extraction or by machine dry cleaning. The cleaning decision is based on several factors, including the type of fiber, the condition of the material, and level of smoke residue. Blinds can be cleaned by immersing them in an ultrasonic tank or by placing them on a padded surface and using wet-cleaning.
What about bathroom fixtures?
Heat and smoke residue can cause stains on fiberglass fixtures, especially on fixtures with light colors. Liquid creme cleaners are used to remove these residues.
