Why do Beekman entrepreneurs trust SERVPRO for fire damage restoration?  

A fire incident can be crippling to your business if not promptly restored. Professionals like SERVPRO can prevent the long-term effects by providing a quick and efficient fire damage restoration service to your Beekman commercial property. 

Structural cleaning is a big part of SERVPRO's fire damage restoration plan for Beekman businesses. It involves removing the soot and smoke residue from surfaces with the help of various techniques. However, the techs test to determine the appropriate cleaning method before cleaning the structure. The goal of the testing is to categorize the material into the following categories-

  • Washable- Material that can be wet-cleaned
  • Non-washable- material that can't be wet-cleaned

How are non-washable surfaces cleaned during fire damage restoration in Beekman?

Non-washable surfaces are not able to withstand saturation with water-based cleaning agents. Hence, SERVPRO techs use dry cleaning methods to remove smoke and soot residue from such surfaces in your Beekman property.  

Dry sponging is one of the most effective methods of dry cleaning. Sponges clean the smoke and soot residues through friction and absorption. The porous sponge absorbs residue from the surface as the sponge is pressed, rubbed, and pulled across the soiled surface. 

When does dry sponging work best? 

Dry sponging is ideal for cleaning flat and non-glossy surfaces. If the surface is glossy, the sponge might smear the residue necessitating a wet-cleaning method. SERVPRO techs use dry sponging to remove light-to-medium residues that are non-greasy. 

Although wet cleaning is a more effective method, it is not possible to use it in certain cases. For instance, wet cleaning can drive smoke particles into porous surfaces, causing staining. In such situations, dry cleaning offers a much better solution.
