SERVPRO Fire Cleanup Can Help Your Business

In commercial projects, we usually employ a larger workforce to aid with:

One problem facing businesses after a property fire is wet smoke. Wet smoke can be challenging to remove from walls and has an oily, odorous texture. This type of smoke is oil-based and does not respond to water-based cleaning agents. Applying a standard detergent to wet smoke residues can further spread the damages than clear them away. To combat a greasy or oily residue, it is necessary to apply an oil-based solvent. Our technicians frequently use these solvents applied directly to the wall surface and allowed to dwell for the recommended time. The cleaning product actively dissolves soot particles during dwell time and suspends them in the solvent. Our technicians can then wash away both the solvent and the suspended soot using a rinsing agent.

  • Solvents have unique dwell times, which require the careful following of instructions to administer.
  • Some materials such as metal can have an adverse reaction to solvents and require traditional abrasive cleaning products to avoid corrosion.
  • Rinsed solvents cannot be disposed of in conventional sewer networks and must be disposed of in an environmentally friendly manner.

If your business suffers from wet smoke residues, contact SERVPRO of Seal Beach / Los Alamitos / Cypress for fire restoration at (562) 431-9400.
