Fire Damage Repair After an Incident in Middletown
Any negligence in the kitchen can lead to a fire. For example, you may leave a gas knob unknowingly turned on. Later, if you bring a lighter close to the stove, a fire ignites suddenly. What could have been a routine day at your home instantly becomes a disaster. Cleaning up the aftermath can be a bigger hassle.
Even if the damage may not look severe, having professionals manage fire damage restoration is paramount as they help check for damages in hidden areas, including the electrical system. The SERVPRO, the Middletown fire restorations team, is available 24/7 with powerful tools and processes to restore your home to a preloss state as soon as possible.
Hidden areas prone to smoke damage:
- Gas lines
Cleaning Porous Wooden Surfaces
Cleaning requirements usually vary depending on the severity of the fire. Smoke and soot deposits attach to surfaces and fabrics in other areas of your home. Unfinished wood, for example, the insides of cabinets, does not have a protective sealer or varnish; hence more vulnerable to smoke or soot damage than finished wood. These surfaces absorb a lot of soot and smoke residues, making them very difficult to clean.
When cleaning unfinished wood, it is advisable to eliminate loose soot using a dry sponge before wiping the surface with a cloth dipped in a cleaning solution. A clean water rinse follows before lightly sanding the areas with fine-grit sandpaper to remove any remaining soot stains.
Cleaning Up After A Kitchen Fire May Entail:
