Types of Fire Residues:
Though there are a lot of different types of residues which are left behind after a fire, the following are some of the most common ones.
- Natural Fire Residue: This is the simplest form of fire residue. It doesn’t produce a lot of soot and is easier to clean. This type of soot is produced due to the paper and wood which has been burned in the fire. The soot is black, thick, and powdery in texture.
- Protein Residue: This kind of residue is normally found in a kitchen fire where meat is kept. It has a very bad odor and the soot is sticky. The color is often brown and yellow.
- Synthetic residues: It is the largest constituent of house fire residues because many things in our houses are made up of synthetic plastic and fiber. It produces the thickest, darkest and heaviest soot. Likewise, it is the most difficult to clean.
If you want to feel useful and take care of some of the mess before the professional arrive, here are a few DIY tips which you can use.
- Soot is acidic in nature. So when you are buying cleaning products for your house make sure it has a pH of more than 7 i.e. it should be alkaline.
- Use vacuum to remove powdery soot and ashes from your carpet. Do not use brushes as this will further aggravate the problem. Simple nozzle is fine.
- Dry all the fabric properly before sending it to cleaners.
- Use metal polishes to clean copper and bronze items in the house.
- Use spray cleaners and paper towel to clean glass surfaces.
- Use water pump or extractors to remove water pooled in corners and dents of house.
- Use foggers instead of ozone generators to get rid of smoke odor. Do not use room spray as it can react with the smoke dust in your house.
- Keep all windows and doors open while the restoration work is under progress.
