- About Us
The smoke and soot that remains after the fire has been put out could cause a bigger problem than the flames did. Smoke affects rooms that the fire never reached. The odor embeds in the walls and can travel through the spaces around pipes to spread odors throughout your Chippewa Falls home. Chemically abrasive soot, if left for too long, will permanently destroy glass and other items. As soon as the TRAC Solutions team arrives, they will begin the restoration process to reduce permanent damage and the overall cost of repairs.
Every home is different: construction materials, layout, furnishings, etc. When TRAC Solutions responds to your request, they will create a plan that might include the following:
All fabrics will need to be cleaned: clothes, curtains, even clean towels in the linen closet. All dishes and pans need to be washed. Even the cans in the pantry need to be wiped.
In the process of putting out the flames, your firefighters might have used special chemicals. Fire-fighting foam is a stable mass of small bubbles of lower density than most flammable liquids and water. It works in four ways:
The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) suggest extra steps when aerial fire retardant or firefighting foam residue is present on the house. Use a three step method: 1) mild detergent and brushes to scrub and dilute the dried residue, 2) rinse with clean water then 3) pressure washing. Scrubbing is necessary to remove the residue.
Trac Solutions offers residential restoration services for fire, water, and storm damage as well as mold remediation, cleaning services, and basement waterproofing.
