Cleaning Methods Employed by SERVPRO for Walls and Ceilings During a House Fire Cleanup in Wilmington

SERVPRO IICRC certified technicians use the following three methods to clean walls and ceilings of your fire-damaged home in Wilmington- 

  • Dry cleaning- Used if the smoke damage residue is non-greasy and light to medium. Dry cleaning is usually done with the help of a dry-cleaning sponge and requires less time to complete
  • Wet cleaning- Used in painted, metal, or wood ceilings or walls with heavy dry soot or light to the heavy grease-based residue. It might take a longer time to mitigate this type of damage. 
  • Peroxide active cleaning- Used mainly for porous ceilings and surfaces such as acoustic ceilings. The method is suitable for textured surfaces that might not be suitable for wet cleaning. The peroxide reacts with the residue and can loosen the bonds between surfaces, making it easier to remove.
