Fire & Water - Cleanup & Restoration

Smoke Damage in Downtown Chicago Business?

11/29/2021 (Permalink)

Downtown Chicago is seen at night. We are trusted leaders in fire damage restoration in Cook County.

You can count on SERVPRO® of Downtown Chicago to respond quickly and immediately begin the cleanup and restoration process when fire damage happens. The fuels burned in a fire leave different residue signatures in the smoke and soot. We test the soot to determine which type of smoke damage occurred.

Smoke and soot facts:

  • Hot smoke migrates to cooler areas and upper levels of a structure
  • Smoke flows around plumbing systems, seeping through the holes used by pipes to go from floor to floor
  • The type of smoke may significantly affect the restoration process

Cleaning Methods

  • Dry Cleaning - used for cleaning light residues or to pre-clean before wet cleaning
  • Wet Cleaning -an effective cleaning method for removing moderate to heavy residues
  • Spray and Wipe - effective for items that can’t withstand wet cleaning
  • Foam Cleaning - used for upholstery fabrics that might shrink or bleed if wet cleaned
  • Abrasive Cleaning - involves agitation of the surface being cleaned
  • Immersion Cleaning - contents are dipped into a bath of the cleaning product
