Hand Trails in Fire Losses

Hand Trails in Fire Losses

What you see pictured here is the trails left behind from a method called "Left hand/Right hand." When you cannot see, you have to rely on your other senses to maneuver through the collapsing structure. Fireman will keep their left hand on the wall, while searching with their right hand or visa versa. This helps them understand the layout of the structure and lead them through the building without using their eyes.

What is Lingering Under Your Carpet?

What is Lingering Under Your Carpet?

In most cases, when carpeted flooring is soiled, the pad underneath absorbs water as well. In order to make sure all water is extracted, carpeting needs to be pulled back so that the underlying material can be examined. Insufficient drying could lead to mold and rot otherwise.

Smokewebs

Smokewebs

This isn't your typical Halloween decoration. In fact, these are not made from cobwebs at all. Smoke webs occur when when the ionization process of burning synthetic materials (rubber, plastics etc.) create charged particles that tend to cling to certain surfaces. These charged particles will attract to themselves repeatedly and form "chains" of soot. Smoke webs are especially common in low heat or smoldering fires which produce "wet smoke." The webs are common in stagnant air spaces such as the corners and edges of ceilings or cabinets.  Soot from synthetic materials is tacky, pungent, and smears very easily with conventional cleaning products. Our Production Staff uses professional grade chemicals specifically designed for smoke and soot produced by any material. No matter how big of a fire damage, you should always contact your local SERVPRO. We'll make it "Like it never even happened."

Fire Damage Restoration With Soda Blasting

Fire Damage Restoration With Soda Blasting

At Ridgeview Baptist Church, we performed soda blasting procedures as a restoration method. Soda blasting is the use of bicarbonate of soda, also known as baking soda, in conjunction with compressed air for the removal of fire damage, smoke damage, mold damage caused by water damage, or any other coating. The process is abrasive, but relatively gentle, and can be used on virtually any surface. As well as being surface friendly, soda blasting is environmentally friendly, it is an eco-friendly, nontoxic and nonhazardous alternative to other cleaning and stripping methods. Additionally, soda blasting leaves a thin film of white powder dust on the surface being cleaned that helps to inhibit the formation of rust on metal for several months after treatment.
