Soda Blasting, Ice Blasting, and Sand Blasting after Major Fire Damage in Leominster
House Fires Cause Tremendous Damage & Headaches - SERVPRO Can Provide Peace of Mind
Most of the time when we talk about the restoration of homes after a fire, we are talking about soot and smoke removal. However, when fires burn at a high temperature, they can cause structural damage as well. These types of fire are generally referred to as major and leave behind charred furniture, structure, and fittings. Despite the seemingly permanent impact, many of these items can be restored rather than replaced using the right equipment.
Severe fire damage in Leominster homes requires intense restoration efforts. At SERVPRO, we use IICRC certified technicians who know how to remove, replace or restore items as well as which parts can be salvaged. Where substantial damages are present, we may have to pack out items to a nearby cleaning facility to fully restore them using ultrasonic cleaning methods.
As for the structure, a careful assessment and pre-test of materials can be carried out by your SERVPRO technician. Although a test process may seem time-consuming, it is an essential part of the work we do. For natural materials, the use of a sandblaster can help to remove charring without the expense of replacing furniture or structure. This equipment removes the charring layer by layer leaving behind a smooth, remediated surface. For your homes more delicate items soda, or ice blasting can be equally effective at removing damage but are less abrasive than sandblasting. However, we need to test the materials before we can apply equipment like this so we can ensure the right outcomes are achieved.
In any fire, the lingering odor of charred materials can be an unpleasant reminder of the event for a homeowner. SERVPRO is certified in odor control techniques using water-based or desiccant chemical foggers to help find and neutralize unpleasant odors. A thorough deodorization of your home can make the fire damage seem "Like it never even happened."
