Initial Containment Solutions
Starting fire restoration in Everett businesses means isolating the damaged portions of the restaurant to allow mitigation and recovery to be streamlined and more productive. Plastic sheeting over structural openings, boarding, tarping, and air filtration equipment can often work together to designate the workspace, keeping unaffected areas operational.
Dislodging Soils Before Surface Cleaning
Removing soils from fire damaged surfaces involves several steps. The first, and arguably most important, is releasing the bulk of the debris and particles resting on the material. Depending on the degree of the damage, this might take several different types of mechanical actions, which include:
- Mild Agitation – the actions needed for gentle agitation are safe for most surfaces. These actions are necessary to remove light damage, where devices like vacuums and feather dusters can be effective.
- Medium Agitation – Medium agitation involves more complex cleaning implements such as crumbly cleaner, which self-destructs as it pulls harsh soils from sensitive substrates. These cleaners can help with protein residues common after kitchen fires in restaurants.
- Heavy Agitation – heavy agitation practices are for extreme or overwhelming soot presences. These types of abrasive cleaning involve blasting, standing, steel wool, or the application of abrasive powders.
