Pretesting Your Items After A Fire

5/3/2022 (Permalink)

At SERVPRO of Southwest Wichita, our technicians use pretesting to determine the scope of the loss, type of fire loss, and the method of cleaning for areas that have been affected. Pretesting helps determine what items are restorable or repairable vs. those items that will need to be replaced. Every surface is different and will require a certain method of cleaning.  

We use several methods of cleaning your contents, including: 

  • Dry Cleaning - Used for cleaning light residues or to pre-clean prior to wet cleaning. 
  • Wet Cleaning - An effective cleaning method for removing moderate to heavy residues. 
  • Spray and Wipe -Effective for items that can’t withstand wet cleaning. 
  • Foam Cleaning - Used for upholstery fabrics that might shrink or bleed if wet cleaned. 
  • Abrasive Cleaning - Involves agitation of the surface being cleaned. 
  • Immersion Cleaning - Contents are dipped into a bath of the cleaning product. 

Every fire damage event is a little different, and requires a unique solution, but the general process and approach stays the same. We have a method that has been perfected over the years and the tools and chemicals that are needed to get you back to your preloss condition. Call SERVPRO of Southwest Wichita to have a professional come in and figure out the best course of action. Our 24/7 emergency line is 316-260-9011!
