Why SERVPRO Uses Immersion Cleaning Strategies for Fire Damage in Olathe

The household goods, furnishings, and personal possessions you treasure in your Olathe home are very much at risk for permanent damage in the aftermath of a fire. Our team of technicians possesses skills not limited merely to returning the walls, ceilings, floors, and other surfaces of your home to preloss condition. We also house resources at our production facility that can deep clean significantly soiled contents. Why do we have these options? They can avoid the expense of purchasing new items and also permit you to save articles for which you have a sentimental attachment.

When Would We Use Immersion Cleaning?

When you experience fire damage in Olathe, it becomes clear quickly that no surface nor item is safe from the residues smoke creates. Although some of the coatings left are light and ashy, these relatively easy to remove debris only form when a hot, paper or wood fire is the cause. As a fire moves through your home, many materials burn. Plastics, rubbers, synthetic fabrics, and proteins leave residues tightly adhered and harder to remove. Often the non-porous contents of your home are covered in thick, sticky, or lacquer-like soot, which is why we feel immersion cleaning can be very useful in removal.

How Does Immersion Cleaning Work?

Soot particles are tiny and can fill in the gaps, folds, cracks, and crevices on articles like blinds and intricately detailed decor. Why SERVPRO chooses to use immersion strategies is that soaking an object with appropriate cleaners can loosen the soot and grime. We make sure the object can withstand complete saturation, and often use a sink or basin to hold the cleaning solution and the soiled objects. After a soak, our technicians use towels or brushes to dislodge the residues, paying close attention to prevent breakage, yet remove the fire damage.

What Is Ultrasonic Cleaning?

Speed and even more efficiency are why SERVPRO chooses in some circumstances to use ultrasonic cleaning. We immerse the objects in an ultrasonic tank filled with the selected cleaning solution. Millions of bubbles generate when high-frequency sound compresses and expands the molecules of water mixed with a cleaner in the tank. The bubbles implode, compressing inward and creating an immediate increase in temperature and microscopic jet streams of cleaning solution, agitating and scrubbing residues off the objects. Only specially trained technicians control the ultrasonic process, ensuring items treated are not too delicate and that proper adjustments are made and monitored.

Specialized training and innovative equipment are why SERVPRO of Olathe / Lenexa can meet a broad range of contents fire damage cleaning needs. Contact us for a consultation at (913) 782-4693.
