Replacing Things Costs More than Fire Restoration

Fire and related soot can make your once-comfortable home a blackened, dirty, smelly mess. Fire restoration efforts can rescue your West Lafayette home without having to replace everything.

Although your residence might seem like a complete and total loss, technicians skilled in fire restoration assist others in West Lafayette quite often. SERVPRO knows how to clean it all up efficiently. The methods we use to restore your belongings reduce the cost of getting back on track. 

Some of these methods, depending on the item in need of fire restoration, include:

  • Dry cleaning (not the type that requires special solvents!),
  • Wet cleaning,
  • Spray and wipe,
  • Foam cleaning, and
  • Abrasive cleaning.

Dry cleaning uses no water or other liquids and works well for fabric decorations like needlepoint or crochet, but only if lightly soiled. We also use this to reduce the amount of soot coating your belongings before using a liquid cleaning method. 

Some cleaning methods, such as carpet cleaning, target a specific material within your residence but to prevent further damage, we must begin as soon as possible. Carpet cleaning is a wet cleaning method. We use this cleaning technique to recover most dishes, cookware, many toys, or anything we can submerge in water.

For more control over an item's moisture content or the amount of cleaning chemical we apply, we can use either spray and wipe or foam-based cleaning methods. Porcelain items from your grandmother might need more delicate cleaning or contain a mixture of materials. Dolls with cloth bodies with a head made of painted porcelain require a lot of TLC and delicately applied cleaning solutions, quickly wiped away and handled carefully. 

Your favorite upholstered rocking chair or recliner might fade or discolor if allowed to get overly soaked. Foam from our cleaning products is all it needs, so we use that to make things clean and bright again.
