Hiring SERVPRO for Fire Damage Restoration Can Save Saratoga Residents Time and Money

Cleaning and restoration after fire damage is a complex task that requires expertise and professional tools. SERVPRO uses various cleaning techniques during fire damage restoration of your Saratoga home, depending on the type of surface involved. The goal is to restore the structure to a preloss condition as quickly as possible. 

Before the fire damage restoration of your Saratoga home can begin, the SERVPRO techs categorize the affected materials into the following categories-

  • Washable: These materials can be wet cleaned, and the application of a water-based cleaning product does not damage them.
  • Non-washable: These are materials that can't be wet cleaned. The application of a water-based cleaning agent might cause damage to such materials. 

How do SERVPRO Techs Use Soda Blasting During House Fire Cleanup in Saratoga?

Soda blasting is an abrasion cleaning technique that SERVPRO techs sometimes use to remove soot and smoke particles from your fire-damaged home in Saratoga. The method involves propelling baking soda crystals (Sodium bicarbonate) against a fire-damaged surface with the help of equipment called a soda blaster. As the crystals impact the surface, they shatter, dislodging the smoke and soot particles in the process. 

Soda blasting is a safe process that does not involve harsh cleaning agents and chemicals that might cause damage to the surfaces. It is a quick process that is highly effective in cleaning smoke and soot residues from various surfaces, including metal, concrete, and wood. 

Another potential advantage of soda blasting is that the soda blast media (sodium bicarbonate) used during the process can also absorb odor-causing particles and help in the deodorization process.
