SERVPRO Has the Professional Equipment to Handle All Types of Fire Cleanup in Clayton Properties

When a Claymont property undergoes professional house fire cleanup, many homeowners assume anything with a coating of soot is an automatic disposal. That is not necessarily the case. 

SERVPRO techs have ongoing, comprehensive training for handling fire damage restoration in Clayton properties. This education entails more than learning how to deal with structural issues. The technicians establish cleaning stations outside the worksite manned by other techs ready to perform different cleaning applications to restore contents from the house. Examples include:

  • Washable items for the Esporta Washing System
  • Immersion cleaning for non-porous items
  • Abrasive cleaning for stuck-on residues on non-porous articles

Carpet and area rugs without signs of heat damage get handled in similar ways. SERVPRO technicians have steam cleaning equipment that can refresh and restore rugs and carpets. The process usually starts with a tech vacuuming the area to be cleaned to remove any loose soot or debris. Then a steam cleaner is used to remove any embedded soot and debris. This process can also remove water stains that happened during the first responders fighting the house fire. When it is not feasible to clean the carpets or rugs on-site, SERVPRO can bring them into their warehouse for manual cleaning. 

SERVPRO of Brandywine / Wilmington at (302) 762-8080 brings professionalism, experience, and compassion to every Claymont fire damage restoration service. The certified technicians are available 24/7 for any size house fire cleanup needs.
