The effects of flames, heat, and smoke from a fire are detrimental to a structure and its contents. However, restoration processes can also cause damages if used incorrectly.  For instance, wet cleaning is an effective way to remove smoke residues, but saturation can cause materials to crumble or set residues leading to staining.

When SERVPRO embarks on fire damage restoration in Riverhead properties, we use alternative cleaning approaches if we determine wet cleaning can cause damages. Dry cleaning is one viable option, although we can also use specialized methods such as soda or dry ice blasting. Dry cleaning involves various things, including:

  • Dry sponge cleaning
  • Brushing
  • Vacuuming
  • Compressed air cleaning

Even after choosing a dry-cleaning approach, our SERVPRO technicians are IICRC certified and take additional steps to protect the property from further damages. For instance, we lay canvas or other protective material over the furniture when cleaning walls with sponges since the rubber crumbles into minute pieces, which can soil the furniture unnecessarily.
