Restoration of fire-damaged surfaces is a highly technical practice that requires expert knowledge. What you don't know is that the fire recovery process doesn't just end up removing carbon from the surface.
The combustion process usually produces acidic by-products which then attack the surface, and especially the metal surface, if not neutralized. It's not enough to just rinse with water. This acid must be chemically neutralized so that the building is free from corrosion problems or the unpleasant smell of smoke caused by fires in the future. You can hire professional fire cleaning services that clean the entire area for you.
Chemical neutralization process:
First of all, when dealing with fire service inquiries, the team needs to analyze the location of the fire to determine the precise cause of the fire – chemical, electrical, etc. and narrow it down to the real cause where possible to determine the exact elements of the combustion equation.
Once determined, the appropriate chemical is applied according to individual requirements to neutralize the entire building and prevent residual acid corrosion over time. Failure can cause total corrosion of the roof truss as well as other structural components.
Chemical neutralization is the most applicable method for removing acid and carbon stains. The remaining substrate determines the product to be applied. After neutralization, the resulting substrate can now be rinsed with high-pressure water.
Odors arise when smoke penetrates into the cavities in the walls of a building. This odor can be suppressed with the help of a special covering material which is applied, thereby eliminating the unpleasant smell of smoke.
