If you're unlucky enough to suffer a fire in your home and business, chances are after the fire department is gone, you have a mess you have to take care of. But before you break out the cleaners and vacuums, you need to understand what's involved in cleaning up after a fire.
Beyond the obvious burnt areas, your house will probably reek of smoke. That's because in a fire, smoke has gone everywhere and permeated your carpet. If you do not hire a professional cleaning service ASAP, there's a huge chance the smoke smell will set in your house for good. Other damages could possibly water damage, which can cause mold and mildew should the carpet remain wet.
UCM Services Orange County will first remove anything that is not salvageable that contains the smoke odor. This is important as anything that contains the odor can continue to contaminate other materials. Then we will assess your carpets, rugs, upholstery, and other fabric base ditems for the necessary cleaning and deodorizing required.
You can help restore your home by getting air to circulate through the house and ensure that your home is well ventilated. Use fans. These are helpful to get rid of the smoke and also help dry out your carpet. We will bring in dehumidifiers and fans to use on wet carpets in order to prevent mold from growing.
