My Floors Sustained Damage in A Fire, How Do I Fix Them?
SERVPRO Uses a Variety of Techniques, Equipment, and Products to Repair Your Oceanside Floors
Fires can cause damage throughout your Oceanside home. Unfortunately, damage often appears from the ceiling to the floors after a fire. Smoke residue manages to work its way into even the smallest nooks and crannies. Recovering after a fire can be complicated, requiring multiple restorations and deodorization methods.
Will I Have to Rip Out My Floors?
SERVPRO Technicians Make Every Attempt to Fix Your Flooring After a Fire
Dealing with fire damage throughout your Oceanside home can be completely overwhelming, especially when it is widespread. Restoration after a fire is multifaceted in that you need to remove and clean smoke residue, deodorize, and repair structural damage. Your flooring may be one of the last things that you notice if there is more widespread damage. If you have vinyl or wood flooring, smoke residue can settle into the porous surfaces and become almost impossible to remove through vacuuming, scrubbing, or other conventional methods. Our technicians may use rotary floor machines to strip damaged finish or deep clean carpets.
How Do Rotary Floor Machines Work?
- Brushes and drive blocks attached to the bottom of the machine agitate the flooring to clean the surface.
- The strong movement of the brushes strips the flooring, removing any stubborn residue.
- If cleaning carpet, there is a solution tank to aid in ease of cleaning carpets.
- When needed, they apply the solution, release the solution, and move the roto machine in circles to work it into the carpet.
Since there are different types of residue depending on the kind of smoke created by specific burning substances, various methods are employed to best clean and bring the home back to preloss status. In addition to cleaning your flooring, technicians use deodorization methods such as fogging to eliminate the evidence of a fire.
