Can My Favorite Suit Be Salvaged After A Bronx Fire?
No One Wants to Buy a New Wardrobe After a Fire in The Bronx – Our Content Management and Cleaning Crews Can Save You Money by Restoring Your Clothing
More than one-quarter of all fires occur in the home. Bronx residences are not exempt from that statistic. The contents of your home become smoke damaged many times, even if it is a minor fire.
Do I need to toss my smoke damaged clothing?
Most of us have a favorite suit, skirt, or comfy bathroom that we would hate to lose. If you have suffered even minor fire damage to your Bronx home, the smoke can travel into unaffected areas. Soot, which is smoke that has settled, can creep into the smallest places. Smoke odor can cling to clothing. But here at SERVPRO, we have technicians trained to clean and restore clothing to preloss condition, but the key is moving quickly.
How Do You Clean Clothing that is Smoke Damaged?
Because smoke particles and odors can bond quickly with certain fabric types, the quicker they get cleaned, the better. If you have clothing that needs cleaning as part of your fire restoration service, you will be instructed to make three groups:
1. Immediate – clothing you need to use immediately
2. Non-immediate – important but necessarily needed right away
3. Seasonal – least important need
Once that is done, the cleaning process will begin. The crew will remove clothes from metal hangers and dispose of the hangers. Compressed air blows of smoke particles and dry, loose residue. A solvent-based odor counteractant helps dissipate odors. Dry cleaning or laundering doesn’t always remove all odors. In that case, thermal fogging further deodorize items.
