Fire Restoration Process

              In the Restoration business, we (SERVPRO of Katy Cypress and Champions 1960) consider ourselves experts in the field. We see all kinds of disasters that we restore back to normal and make the property look brand new. Some of the messiest jobs we see are caused by fires. Fire restoration is a messy business that needs to be done and it’s hard to figure where to start if you don’t know what you are doing.

The first step is to determine the point of origin. Once you have done this you can start by cleaning every single surface. We (SERVPRO of Katy Cypress and Champions 1960) start with dry cleaning and if that doesn’t work then we move to cleaning with our own house made cleaning products. If we must use our products, then we do some testing on the walls where it is not very noticeable. Once we figure out the correct product we apply it accordingly to all the surfaces.

As we are cleaning the affected areas we have an air scrubber running. Air scrubbers are not literally scrubbing the air but they are the closest thing in existence to that. Air scrubbers literally get the particulates out of the air. If you are cleaning ash off the walls and ceiling, then there are a lot of particulates in the air. The have about 4 different air filters inside of them and suck the air in and blow out clean air. Air scrubbers must be running day and night during a fire restoration job.

So, after we clean all the surfaces of the affected areas we clean the floors. We have probably been walking throughout the job and have made a mess on top of what was probably a messy floor already. Check out Part II for more information on how fire restoration is done!
