SERVPRO restorers face several challenges during the fire damage restoration of your Hackettstown home. One of the biggest of which is to determine the cleanability of the surfaces involved. Fire and smoke damage can present significantly different cleaning and restoration situations depending on how the surfaces interact with the fire in progress. SERVPRO technicians use a multi-step approach to tackle these unique situations. 

Factors Affecting Cleanability of Fire-Damaged Homes in Hackettstown.

Some factors that determine how difficult it is going to be to clean your fire damaged Hackettstown home include the following:

  • Type of surface- Porous surfaces allow the particles of smoke and soot to penetrate deeper, making them difficult to clean. Non-porous surfaces such as vinyl wall coverings and glossy and enamel paints are relatively easy to clean.  
  • The temperature of fire- Hotter fires produce smoke particles that have higher kinetic energy and can penetrate deeper. Heat can also char materials and melt or bubble finishes.  
  • The temperature of the surfaces- Hotter oily smoke residues tend to deposit on cooler surfaces forming a film and making the surfaces hard to clean. 
  • Type of material- Burning synthetic materials such as plastics and polymers produce difficult to clean residues than natural materials like wood and cotton.
