Let SERVPRO Handle Your Fire Damage Restoration in Your Somerset Home

Instead, let the technicians at SERVPRO repair the fire damage to your Somerset structure. We can perform the comprehensive restoration services you need in a timely and convenient fashion. We grasp that this is a stressful time, and we do our best to take that worry away by working with you and your insurance carrier to be consistent with budgeting and timelines. 

Cleaning Ceilings and Walls After Fire Damage

Wall and ceiling cleaning procedures address different surfaces. SERVPRO technicians identify wall and ceiling surfaces while we pretest for cleanability. The factors determining the best method to use include the kind of surface, the type of soil, and whether a surface is dry cleanable or wet cleanable. Three forms of Cleaning will take care of most walls and ceilings:

  • Dry Cleaning Sponge – This can be used for ceilings of all types with light to medium non-grease-based soiling. The dry cleaning sponge can also pre-clean excess non-grease-based soils before wet Cleaning.
  • Wet Cleaning - is used on metal, painted, or wood ceilings with heavy dry ash, soot residue, or light-to-heavy oil-based residues.
  • Peroxide active Cleaning - can clean acoustical ceilings and other porous or nonporous ceiling surfaces, especially those with heavy nicotine or tar staining. The coating on blown, textured ceilings could dissolve if treated with aggressive wet cleaning procedures. Instead, we use the peroxide active ceiling cleaning process.

When your home experiences fire damage, you can call SERVPRO of Southeast Somerset County any time at (908) 251-9097. We will be there quickly to help prevent further damage so you can rest easy.
