How Do Fire Disaster Recovery Professionals Decide Which Cleaning Products and Strategies to Use to Remove Residues in Twin Falls?
Call us to learn how we make it “Like it never even happened.”
Count on SERVPRO’s Highly Qualified Team of Trained Managers and Technicians to Clean Up Fire Damage in Your Twin Falls Home Using Best Practices
The soiling deposited on surfaces of your Twin Falls dwelling and infiltrating into furnishings, household goods, and personal possessions after a fire is unlike ordinary dirt and grime. In addition to containing toxic compounds created during combustion, the soot can adhere tightly to walls, ceilings, floors, appliances, and more. Trying to remove it with conventional products and without specific training can worsen the damage and expose the individual doing the cleaning to hazardous substances.
Why Are Fire Residues Challenging to Clean?
Before professional restorers attempt to clean up fire damage in your Twin Falls residence, they have some targeted assessments to complete. Before they can begin on residue evaluation, any water damage from firefighting efforts must be mitigated and remediated. As some members of our crew operate the pumps, extractors, air movers, and dehumidifiers to remove fluids and moisture from the structure, project managers begin the painstaking task of looking closely at the types of soot found and planning for its safe abatement.
How Do We Handle Dry Soot?
This type of residue is left behind after paper, and wood or cellulose-based items fuel the fire. The resulting blaze is hot and fast, well-oxygenated, and deposits a loose, ashy residue. Rubbing and using water or oil-based cleaners smear and grind this kind of soot into the surfaces, damaging and staining them. SERVPRO employees use the following to clear this kind of soiling:
• Feather dusters
• Dry (chemical) sponges
• Dry cloths and towels
• Brushes of various sizes and stiffness depending on circumstances
• Pressurized air
• HEPA-filtered vacuums
How Do We Handle Wet Soot?
When electrical boxes and cords short and burn, rubber and plastics melt, and damp or tightly packed padding or fabrics provide materials for the flames, smoldering occurs. The oxygen level is limited, and the temperature of the burn lower. Soot from this kind of scenario is thick and sticky. Our Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC)-trained crews approach this residue by:
• Spray and wipe techniques, with the spray cleaner matched to the type of residue (water or oil-based, dependent on our skilled assessment)
• Foam cleaning for fabric and upholstery that cannot be submerged or washed
• Immersion tubs and ultrasonic machines for loose, non-porous objects
• Industrial laundry machines and dry cleaning for fabrics and window treatments
How Do We Handle Protein-Based Soot?
Many fires start in the kitchen, and the residues produced when food, oils, and grease are overheated, or flame up, are particularly tricky to find and remove. The residue is made up of the dehydrated protein in various food products. It forms a thin, nearly transparent film on surfaces, including contents and building materials far from the original fire site. It adheres very tightly and has significant amounts of oil in its composition. We need to:
• Search the entire home for evidence of this soot as it is incredibly malodorous and must be removed to avoid lingering smells
• Pretest the surfaces affected because of the aggressive methods we might need to employ
• Use solvents and abrasive techniques to loosen the varnish-like coating
What Do We Consider While Evaluating the Surfaces Involved?
The soot nearly always has a cleaning product, additives, and approaches that eventually break the bond between the residue and the surface. Not all surfaces can endure the efforts needed without adaptation. For examples, care must be taken:
• When a wood-product surface is covered in a thin veneer that might not hold up to vigorous scrubbing with an abrasive tool or cleaning product
• When a surface is porous because it is risky to saturate or soak it with cleaning products
• When a surface might have an adverse chemical reaction to a particular cleaning product or additive
What Are Other Safeguards Required During Fire Damage Cleanup?
Because of the toxic substances coating, every surface, and the potential hazards of some of the cleaning products used, personal protective equipment (PPE) is nearly always a requirement for our crew members. To shield you and your family from the fumes and toxins, we often set up a containment area using 1.6 mil polyethylene. A negative pressure air scrubbing system helps by trapping airborne particulates in HEPA filters and venting to the outside.
The care taken by SERVPRO of Twin Falls & Jerome Counties to match residues with appropriate cleaning products and techniques results in the best outcome for our residential customers. Call us at (208) 735-1447 to learn how we make it “Like it never even happened.”

Who Can Clean Up After Water Losses in My Twin Falls Restaurant?
Water damage can cause a major setback to your business if it is not taken care of properly. Contact SERVPRO to remediate the damage.
Our SERVPRO professionals can respond quickly with surface cleaning efforts to follow our extraction and drying.
The pace in your kitchen area is quick and bustling, so mistakes happen and can lead to some unexpected disasters. When kitchen fixtures get broken, or sprinkler heads busted off, the resulting pooling water can quickly become a threatening situation for your staff, your equipment, and the guests in your restaurant.
Once extraction occurs to remove the pooling, we can begin to look at the needs for water cleanup in Twin Falls businesses. This stage of restoration involves our experienced SERVPRO cleaning technicians versed in both water restoration (WRT) and structural drying (ASD) through the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC.)
What Damages Can Water Leave Behind?
Every water loss incident can affect the exposed materials and contents destructively. Depending on how long these areas and items remain exposed, the more that effects such as degradation or secondary effects like microbial growth can take root. Some of the areas where your restaurant can get damaged by water losses include:
- Structural Deterioration – Exposed materials can swell, bloat, and distort. Wooden furniture like booths and tables, drywall, ceiling tiles, and carpet can all become irreparably damaged the longer that water remains trapped in the materials.
- Residues – From this deterioration or the movement of debris and minerals in the water, residues can form along exposed surfaces. We have wipe cleaning techniques using potent chemical agents to remove these residues and deposits from flooring and walls.
- Post-Demolition Debris – Controlled demolition is often a necessary ingredient to the restoration and recovery that your restaurant needs, especially when areas of your ceiling in the prep areas have become damaged and are sagging or ready to collapse.
Our SERVPRO of Twin Falls & Jerome Counties team can help with mitigation, restoration, and even reconstruction as your restaurant needs it. It is our business to get you back in business, and we can start as soon as you call (208) 735-1447.

The Real Truth Behind Flood Damage Remediation in Twin Falls
When your area is facing flooding and the resulting flood damage, the best recourse is to contact the certified technicians at SERVPRO for service.
Flood Damage Twin Falls – Restore or Replace
That's the question many homeowners ask themselves after a flood. Should the family throw out everything and replace it? Or should an attempt be made to save as much as possible? There are many factors to consider. Insurance coverage, heirlooms, contamination, total cost, and disruption to the family are just a few to consider. Consumers in this situation are also very emotional, having just experienced a catastrophic event. Many people need help to make these decisions.
SERVPRO has been providing flood damage services in Twin Falls and the surrounding area for years. We provide a 5-year warranty to back up our work, and we work closely with the client and their insurance company to make the right decisions for every situation. Many items can be recovered, de-sanitized, and cleaned. Generally, porous items have absorbed too much water and contaminated materials. We suggest replacing these items in most situations.
Floodwaters carry a great deal of debris, including mud, as well as contaminated materials. Chemicals, biohazards, feces, even human waste can be picked up by floodwaters and carried into your home. With mud coating everything, it can be challenging to know what type of hazards there are and how your items should be treated. SERVPRO encourages homeowners in these situations to leave it to the pros.
Once SERVPRO flood technicians are on-site and have assessed the situation, we can provide guidance, regarding the best approach to take. If something can be saved through thorough cleaning, de-sanitized, and held in an uncontaminated staging area, we make every effort to save the item. We thoroughly review our recommendations with both the homeowner and the insurance adjuster to ensure that all variables are considered. Our objective is to return your home and contents to its original condition, "Like it never even happened." We also aim to keep your family safe as well and avoid health issues from contamination.
We hold a contractor license: Residential: RCE-43137, which enables our SERVPRO team to provide complete cleaning, restoration, repair, and reconstruction services.

What Makes Your Team Qualified for the Job?
We utilize the latest techniques and remain up to date on all available training to ensure we provide our customers with the quality service they need in a time of crisis. We remove damaged materials, address staining and odors, and negate potential harm from mold and mildew growth by ensuring all moisture is located and dried. After mitigation is wrapped up, we set reconstruction plans in motion to restore your interior to like-new condition.
How Can I Be Sure Water Removal Was a Success?
Whenever your Twin Falls property has significant water on site after a fire loss, SERVPRO responds immediately by:
- Commencing with water extraction efforts immediately before moisture seeps into floorboards and behind walls.
- Using specialized drying equipment like air movers, industrial fans, dehumidifiers, and drying mats
- Employing the use of moisture meters and sensors to locate any areas where water may have migrated.
- Removing saturated carpeting and the padding beneath for replacement.
- Cutting strategic holes in the walls to allow for full cavity drying.
How Long Can I Wait Before Addressing the Fire Damage in My Home?
The longer that you wait to execute fire loss cleanup, the more damage there is. Harsh residue from soot and smoke permeates through porous materials and sticks to non-porous surfaces. Almost immediately, grout and wooden surfaces begin to darken, and materials like fiberglass or your appliances can start to discolor.
The more time passes, you also have damage in the form of:
- Permanent staining of fabrics and upholstery
- Corrosion and tarnishing of metals
- Discoloration of paint on your walls and ceilings
- Deterioration of wooden furniture and flooring
- Crumbling vinyl
- Drywall and other materials throughout the house begin to discolor
We Feature IICRC-Certified Technicians
Our teams follow standards put forth by the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC), which ensures you have skilled professionals on your side. A fire loss is severe, but when mixed with water damage, it creates a unique situation best addressed by experts in the field of restoration. Safety is paramount, and our team arrives on-site wearing the appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE). We also take measures to ensure soot, moisture, and debris are not transferred from affected areas of the home into other rooms by wearing foot covers and tarping off workspaces.
Will I Still Smell Smoke After Fire Loss Restoration?
We know that air quality is imperative, so we pay attention to any areas where smoke may have traveled. We inspect your home’s HVAC system to determine if soot particles may have infiltrated and then take the time to determine whether your insulation must be replaced. In some cases, we can remove the first few inches of the insulation and replace it. In more severe cases of smoke infiltration, we may suggest removing all of the insulation for a full replacement.
Following the full cleanup and drying, the final step is ensuring that your interior is cleaned and disinfected. Our skilled technicians deodorize your property and the contents. We use a range of specialized cleaning and sanitization methods by way of:
- EPA-registered cleaners and deodorizers
- Hydroxyl generators
- Thermal Fogging, and more
When you are faced with fire loss, we are here to help with prompt restoration efforts and water removal. Call our team at SERVPRO of Twin Falls & Jerome Counties at (208) 735-1447, and we can send technicians out to begin the assessment phase.

Preventing Water Damage In Twin Falls
Addressing water migration is one of the first steps in determining what your local office needs after a disaster.
Preventing Water in Concrete Subflooring of Twin Falls Offices
Short pile carpeting is a traditional flooring material for many of the office buildings here in Twin Falls. Despite how common this component might be, it is often not the priority when substantial water loss situations take place in the office. Management would consider the impact on electronics, furniture, and dividers to be the most significant loss. However, when moisture gets into concrete subflooring material, it might not be a manageable condition to address.
In your office building, there are often dozens of employees working around the clock, which can make it challenging to address water damage in your Twin Falls building whenever it occurs. Our SERVPRO professionals also understand the impact that standing water and migrating moisture can have on the fixtures still in place in the office building, including the computer systems, desks, and drywall. Knowing how to help your building can not only save you money but get your staff back on the premises as soon as possible.
The best solution that we can often offer bustling office buildings is to allow them to remain open in a limited capacity. At the same time, we work to address loss effects around the work already occurring in the building. The installation of containment barriers can benefit this effort in many ways:
• Fewer cross-contamination threats
• More efficient and concentrated drying efforts
• Allows clients and staff to be in the building while mitigation and restoration continue
Preventing water from penetrating the subflooring of your building space begins with the fastest drying of the short-pile carpets. We even have a team of talented contractors that can remove the saturated carpets to protect the concrete beneath it. Drying mats and other specialty drying tools can help to remove moisture trapped in concrete surfaces. However, due to its low porosity, it is often possible to prevent this penetration from ever occurring in the first place.
Addressing water migration is one of the first steps in determining what your local office needs after a disaster. No matter how we can help, give our SERVPRO of Twin Falls & Jerome Counties team a call today at (208) 735-1447.
