With an Experienced Crew and Fast Service, SERVPRO is One of the Best Choices for Fire Cleanup in Downtown Chicago

Hiring the proper cleaning and restoration service after a fire incident can significantly reduce repair costs. You need a company like SERVPRO with a proven track record of handling fire cleanup projects in Downtown Chicago.

SERVPRO professionals can begin the fire cleanup of your Downtown Chicago home within minutes after receiving your call. After scoping the property for the extent of damage, the technicians prepare a plan to restore the materials to preloss condition as quickly as possible. SERVPRO techs employ several cleaning techniques to remove residue left behind by fire and smoke damage.   

Can SERVPRO techs remove oily residues from fire-damaged homes in Downtown Chicago? 

SERVPRO techs take some innovative approaches to tackle oily residues on various surfaces of your Downtown Chicago home. Depending on whether the residues are light or heavy, SERVPRO technicians apply either of the following techniques:

  • Emulsification: If the residues are light, the techs use water-based detergents to pull the oily soils away from the surfaces and form an emulsion that can be washed away. 
  • Dissolution: If the residues are too heavy for the detergents, techs use oil-based solvents to dissolve them before removing them. 

What kind of oil-soluble solvents do SERVPRO techs use during fire cleanup? 

SERVPRO only uses solvents that meet the toxicity and flammability standards set by Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). We also ensure that the area is well ventilated and take all safety precautions while using oil-based solvents.
