San Francisco Entrepreneurs Are Looking for Thorough Fire Restoration

San Francisco business owners know that when their business is not open, it is not earning money. However, they will still have overheads, such as staff wages, rent, and insurance to pay. That is why, in the event of a disaster, it is vital to open again as soon as possible.

Entrepreneurs in San Francisco need fire restoration services upon which they can rely. That is why SERVPRO should be your first call – we are Faster To Any Size Disaster.

Which office furnishings can be affected by fire?

Soot is a grimy, sticky substance that, unfortunately, bonds with many kinds of material. Soot damages all types of office furnishings, including:

  • Desks and chairs
  • Carpets and rugs
  • Cushions, wall hangings, and throws
  • Drapes and blinds, including Venetian blinds

Venetian blinds are a favored choice of window covering in offices as they fit most sizes of windows. But what happens when fire damages the blinds?

How does SERVPRO clean Venetian blinds?

Two main cleaning methods are suitable for Venetian blinds.

The first is immersion cleaning. We mix Ultra Content Cleaner with hot water and immerse damaged items in it, using a sponge to dislodge soils, which is particularly useful for small patches of soot.

However, if the blinds require full immersion, ultrasonic cleaning is an excellent choice. The steps are:

  • Decide on the correct water temperature, cleaning solution, and frequency of bubbles
  • Place the blinds in an ultrasonic tank filled with water and cleaning solution
  • Switch the machine on – the device creates millions of bubbles that implode and create microscopic jet streams that agitate and remove soils

What about the rest of the office?

Do not worry – we are here to clean your business premises from top to bottom. Our teams have the equipment and skill to scrub soot residues from walls and ceilings, furniture, wood, metal, and even HVAC systems. We also carry out repairs to put your premises back the way it was and make sure it is safe to use once more.
