SERVPRO Takes Various Precautions to Protect Floors From Unnecessary Damages

When cleaning your fire-damaged property, most of the debris and soils settle on the floors, which can make the removal process challenging. If you are not cautious, your efforts to remove stubborn soils can end up damaging the floors of your Raleigh home.

Taking appropriate precautions during fire cleanup of your Raleigh property can help protect various parts of your floor. When the restoration is handled by a professional like SERVPRO, you can be assured of sufficient protection since the technicians have access to a wide range of tools and accessories to tackle various tasks. 

Some helpful accessories when cleaning floors include:

  • Dollies or lifting straps for moving heavy furniture and appliances
  • Furniture pads or blocks for safe placement of furniture on wet floors
  • Different wand types for cleaning different surfaces like tiles and carpets

Equipment hoses may cause unexpected issues such as door jamb and trim damages when they rub against surfaces. Our SERVPRO technicians use corner guards when cleaning floors to prevent such unnecessary issues. 

Different approaches are necessary when dealing with various floor materials to ensure thorough cleanliness or to prevent deterioration. When cleaning hardwood floors, it is essential to do it repeatedly to remove fire residues thoroughly. When mopping, our SERVPRO technicians change the water several times. For carpets, the method used should introduce minimal moisture to ensure faster drying and prevent the glues holding the materials together from deteriorating.
