SERVPRO Cleans and Refinishes Hardwoods in Nutley

When you envision a fire in Nutley, you may think of wood going up in flames. However, there may be hope for repairing or cleaning your hardwoods. It depends on the severity of the fire and its damage to materials and belongings in your home. Whether it be flooring or furniture, it is essential to remember that you may not need to dispose of them. There are various techniques and products that may help restore your hardwood materials and furnishings.

What if the Floors Are Blistered or Stained After a Fire?
Fire damage restoration is not always cut and dry for your Nutley home. Sometimes a portion of the impacted area or item can be repaired, while other parts of the same site require more attention. If there is severe blistering on a hardwood floor, technicians most likely refinish the wood rather than simply cleaning it.

What are the Techniques and Products that Help Technicians Use to Restore Hardwood Furniture?
    •    Dry Cleaning works best for unfinished wood and a dust-like residue. Technicians use vacuums, feather dusters, and dry cleaning sponges to dry clean hardwood floors and furniture.
    •    Wet Cleaning with mild, low-alkaline cleaners works well for moderate to high levels of residue. It is important to clean with the grain and use a polish to restore its natural oils.
    •    Semi-Refinishing using SERVPRO's Wood Creme Past #209 removes a thin layer of the flooring's finish. Technicians often use this technique to remove watermarks left from firefighting efforts.
    •    Polishing hardwood furniture with SERVPRO's Furniture Polish #207 removes smudges or stains. Technicians remove smoke residue before polishing furniture.
