What Is the Easiest Way to Clean the Ceiling After Fire Damage in My Apartment?

SERVPRO Provides Resources that Match the Cleaning Challenge Making It Easier to Restore Your Soiled Ceiling

Cleaning the ceiling can present many challenges, especially considering most smoke residues settle on its surface when there is a fire in your property. SERVPRO technicians have several resources that can help ease the cleaning of the ceiling in your Syracuse property.

What complicates ceiling cleaning after fire damage in your homes?

  • The unusual position
  • Delicate materials
  • Ceiling fixtures

The location of the ceiling leads to awkward posture when cleaning, which can complicate the process or even lead to injuries. Our technicians use various accessories to simplify the process. For instance, we have different types of ladders, which help ensure proximity to the soiled areas. Alternatively, we can attach extension poles to regularly brush or cleaning sponge holders, for telescopic access to the ceiling when standing on the floor and at a less tiring angle.

Do ceiling materials affect the cleaning process?

Houses have various types of ceiling constructions, including:

  • Conventional ceiling
  • Suspended ceiling
  • Tray Ceiling

Apart from the conventional ceiling, the other types add some level of difficulty to the cleaning process because of the design or the materials used to make them. For instance, if you have a suspended or drop ceiling, it is made of lightweight acoustic materials. Regular cleaning can damage it by over-wetting the panels. Our SERVPRO technicians use specialized cleaning methods such as Peroxide Active Cleaning, which eliminates over wetting.

We also overcome problems associated with different designs. For instance, the waffle-like coffered design or the multiple levels of the tray ceiling create crests and basins, which make it harder to remove residues. Our technicians have access to different resources, including chemical sponges and compressed air equipment, to help reach the residues conveniently. 

With the right support, it is easier to remove soiling from a ceiling after fire damage. Call SERVPRO of Downtown Long Beach
