Need Assistance with Cleaning Up After a Fire in San Jose – Call SERVPRO

Cleaning up after a fire in San Jose involving removing soils and particles that are not loose must be completed carefully to avoid damaging the surface they are on. Cleaning a material with the wrong cleaning agent can cause the soils and residues to adhere tightly to the surface or cause smearing or penetrating further into the fabric. Porous materials need careful handling avoid further damage.

SERVPRO examines the types of residues and surfaces before beginning fire cleanup in residences or commercial buildings in San Jose. We dissolve soils and particles before removal. Dissolving the residues loosens the bond they have with the item's surface. The residue particles become suspended in the cleaning product, which can flush away as the cleaning products are rinsed out. We are cautious about the type of cleaning agent we use. Some materials can be damaged by water, while others may suffer damage from solvents.

We use a three-step process to remove soils and residues once a cleaning agent is selected. 

  • Wash – a cleaning agent, is applied to the surface and gently agitated.
  • Rinse – soils are removed with the cleaning solution used as a rinsing agent
  • Dry – once the cleaning agent is removed, along with the soils, dry the item using a combination of air movement, heat, and low humidity.

SERVPRO provides a complete suite of services to help clients after a fire, in addition to cleaning soil and residue from surfaces. These services include:

  • Fire damage restoration
  • Smoke damage restoration and remediation
  • Water and fire damage cleanup
