First visit our page on what to do immediately after you've experienced fire damage.

When it comes to cleaning and remediation of property with fire damage, SERVPRO of Alexandria first determines which cleaning methods to use on the various surfaces and materials in a structure. Structural items include framework, ceilings, doors, windows, floors and floor coverings, bath fixtures, cabinets, light fixtures and the HVAC system.  In simple terms, if something can't be carried out of a building, it is considered structure.

All materials and surfaces fall into two categories: Washable and Non-Washable.

Washable - These materials and surfaces can be cleaned using a water-based cleaning product. This is possible because using one will not further damage the item or surface (floor or wall) being cleaned. We maintain an extensive inventory of cleaners for every type.

Non-Washable - These are materials and surfaces that cannot be cleaned using a water-based cleaning product. Doing so would cause further damage to the material or surface. Non-washable methods include dry solvent, dry sponges/cloths, and vacuums.

Over the years, SERVPRO of Alexandria has seen many examples of what can happen when an unqualified company or individual tries to tackle fire damage restoration. The assumption, for many, is that cleaning and removing damaged items is easy. The truth is it’s hard work that requires special equipment and techniques. SERVPRO of Alexandria technicians are highly trained in property restoration. From initial and ongoing training at SERVPRO's Corporate Training Facility to regular IICRC industry certifications, our Professionals are equipped with the knowledge to restore your property.
