Are Carpets Savable after a House Fire?

A fire damaged room in a home. Call SERVPRO after your fire damage, let us help get your Fremont home to better than before.

SERVPRO in Fremont Has a Tiered Approach to Deal with Carpets Damaged by Fire

Carpets can vary in fibers, density, and material. Any of these variables can affect the cleaning methods used by technicians to restore items after a house fire. SERVPRO has five individual cleaning methods for carpets that are targeted from light soot damage to extensive soiling. 

One impact of fire damage in your Fremont home is the release of hot soot and ash. Once the building cools, these particles can settle onto fabrics and become lodged into fibers. The techniques we use to clean these textiles can be grouped into two distinct categories. Maintenance cleaning is generally for light soils. Restorative cleaning uses more aggressive methods and equipment intending to return heavily damaged carpets to a preloss condition. 

  • Maintenance cleaning involves bonnet cleaning using a rotary machine alongside pre-conditioning agents. 
  • Hot water extraction is another method of maintenance cleaning that can help to remove light soils from carpets. 
  • Rotary jet extractor is a piece of advanced equipment for heavily settled soot and soils that can return a carpet to its preloss condition under most circumstances.

Restore fittings to a pre-incident condition. Contact SERVPRO of Newark, Southwest Fremont for fire damage restoration at (510) 737-8793.
