Fort Lauderdale Residents Trust SERVPRO with Fire Restoration

Apart from causing cosmetic damage to your home, the smoke and soot particles also wreak havoc on the structural integrity of your home. SERVPRO® techs prioritize removing these residues during the fire restoration of your Fort Lauderdale home. We use state-of-the-art cleaning agents and equipment to restore your home “Like it never even happened.”

SERVPRO techs adapt the basic cleaning concepts during fire restoration of Fort Lauderdale homes based on the situation. We use multiple ways to agitate surfaces and various products to produce chemical reactions to remove residues.  

Using Elements of Cleaning During House Fire Cleanup 

SERVPRO technicians utilize a comprehensive approach known as TACT for effective fire restoration. The methodology incorporates Temperature, Agitation, Chemical action, and Time, each playing a pivotal role in suspending soils and residues in a cleaning product.

  • Temperature: Heat accelerates the movement of molecules, thereby enhancing the chemical reaction between cleaning solutions and soils. However, excessive heat can be detrimental, unsafe, or damaging to the cleaned materials. So, SERVPRO technicians adhere to the optimal temperature guidelines for each cleaning product, ensuring safety and efficacy.
  • Agitation: This process involves using friction to break the bond between soil and surface. Techniques like water pressure, air pressure, rotating brushes, scrubbing, wiping, and sand-blasting are employed. 
  • Chemical Action: SERVPRO's approach includes using detergents, acidic and alkaline solutions, and bleaches to break the bond between smoke residues and surfaces. The selection of the chemical agent is crucial and is determined based on the nature of the soil and the surface being cleaned.
  • Time: Referred to as dwell time in the restoration industry, it represents the duration required for soils to dissolve and for the chemical action to take effect. This period varies depending on the material, soil type, agitation method, and the temperature of the cleaning solution. 

SERVPRO's fire damage restoration emphasizes the balanced interplay of these elements to ensure that your Fort Lauderdale home is restored to preloss conditions as quickly as possible.
