SERVPRO Improves Cleaning in Kansas City Homes by Focusing on Specialized Reactions

Soiling is a common outcome of water damage. Luckily, you can purchase a significant variety of commercial cleaning agents to help remove the soils left in your Kansas City home. The choice of a cleaning agent should be informed by its chemical composition and the type of soil you intend to remove.

Professional water damage restoration helps Kansas City homeowners with everything, including improving the cleaning processes. Our SERVPRO technicians receive advanced training, which provides the proper knowledge on product choice. For instance, we choose products based on their reactions to the soils they remove.

Typical reactions that aid cleaning includes:

  • Bleaching
  • Chelating
  • Buffering
  • Dispersion

Most people understand bleaching, which helps remove stains or brighten fabrics. However, you may not comprehend that there are different types of bleaching. Bleaches can be broadly classified into two categories. Oxidizing bleaches add Oxygen to help break down soils while reducing bleaches counteract the oxidation process. Our SERVPRO technicians can evaluate the changes in your upholstery or draperies to determine the best bleaching action.

The pH levels and hardness or softness of water heavily influence the outcome of a cleaning exercise. For instance, a constant pH is necessary for efficient cleaning, yet the pH changes as cleaning solutions interact with soils. Hard water, on the other hand, contains insoluble salts. After evaluating your property, our SERVPRO technicians determine the correct buffering agents to maintain pH levels and chelating agents to counter hard water.

Other considerations are necessary apart from considering a product's chemical composition. In most cases, this means the additional actions that help break up soils or complete the cleaning process faster.

Some typical actions that help cleaning water damage include:

  • Increasing temperature
  • Allowing sufficient dwell time
  • Supplying sufficient agitation force
