SERVPRO Can Use a Combination of Chemicals and Cleaning Methods to Clean Any Soiled Contents Inside Your San Jose Home 

If an inferno ignites inside your house in San Jose, the smoke created by the burnt materials can flow to every room inside your home. Once the smoke contacts cooler surfaces, it can solidify and turn into soils and soot residue that can adhere to the various surfaces inside your structure.

During any fire damage project in San Jose, our SERVPRO technicians know that cleaning contents can be as big of a job as cleaning your soiled building materials and structural components. Removing soot residues from certain surfaces of the contents inside your house can often be tricky. Some of your personal possessions could have irregular surfaces that can require different cleaning methods than your items that have smooth, non-porous surfaces. 

What types of techniques do you use when cleaning my contents?

    Dry Cleaning: Cleaning with dry sponges can be effective when cleaning medium to light soils and when used as a primary process to remove the excess soils before wet cleaning procedures.

    Wet Cleaning: Our SERVPRO crew can clean your items with water-based detergents when dealing with moderate to heavy soiling.

    Spray and Wipe: This wet cleaning process involves spraying a chemical with a spray bottle and then wiping the surface with a rag.

    Foam Cleaning: This method uses a foam-based detergent to remove soils from soft, upholstered items.

    Abrasive Cleaning: The act of using abrasives means that some sort of agitation is applied inside the chemical to aid with soot residue removal.

    Immersion Cleaning: Fully immersing some of your contents can be very effective when dealing with irregularly-shaped possessions. This process involves dipping the item into the cleansing solution, and we often use it when cleaning Venetian blinds.

If any of your furniture or other items inside your house in Saratoga or Monte Sereno ever get coated by soot residues due to the smoke created after a fire, call SERVPRO of Campbell at (408) 371-4001.
