When it comes to the most efficient cleaning of your building's contents after a fire, knowledge and experience are key factors. For example, certified technicians know that dry-cleaning is the best choice for clothes and fabrics damaged by smoke odors and soot. They also know that ultrasonic methods work better for non-porous items. Experienced technicians will choose from a variety of cleaning methods to get the best results for each particular item. They will also pretest items to see if they can be cleaned sufficiently; this saves time and money.

The Option for Content Storage

A professional fire mitigation company sometimes removes items from your building. This has several benefits in terms of the overall restoration job:

  • A more efficient restoration process
  • Better protection for fragile contents
  • More attention to individual items

If dry-cleaning is necessary, a move-out provides better access to the clothes or furniture. The removal of the items from your company in Laurel, MT, is done carefully and efficiently, making sure nothing is broken in the process. The items will be returned to your company based on its needs.

The Possibilities for Content Cleaning
When done effectively, the skilled cleaning of items can save a company extra expenses. Technicians can often restore items at a fraction of the cost of replacing them. For certain items, they will use methods such as foam cleaning and immersion cleaning, while for more fragile items they are more likely to rely on spray and wipe techniques. Abrasive cleaning, which involves agitation of dirty surfaces, is appropriate in some circumstances. Wet cleaning often works best for removing heavy to moderate residues.
Dry-cleaning is best used for cleaning light residues as the result of a fire, or for advanced cleaning before wet cleaning. Trained technicians will look for the best cleaning method for each item, using their knowledge and experience to make the right choices.
