One thing we have to look at restoring and cleaning are wallcoverings. They can come in several different kinds of materials, and the level of success that SERVPRO staff can have in restoring wallcoverings which are smoke-damaged depends upon whether it is porous or nonporous. We also look at how well the material resists heat and smoke, and how it is affected by various kinds of cleaning products.
Before we get started, we pretest wallcoverings, using a hidden area like behind the wall and switch plates. When dry cleaning materials, we examine them for loose or frayed edges or seams which can be damaged if the dry cleaning sponge catches them. SERVPRO techs are careful not to saturate the surface, as the wheat paste glue used to apply some coverings dissolves quickly in water.
Since paper wallpaper is porous, it absorbs cleaning products which are water-based. Therefore dry cleaning with a dry cleaning sponge is usually the only method which is safe. Vinyl wallpaper, on the other hand, is nonporous, as the vinyl coating applied to the face of the paper resist moisture penetration. We pretest and clean this paper with a general surface cleaner, and then rinse it with a special rinse.
Foil wallpapers are finished with a metallic, glossy face. It resists moisture like vinyl wallpaper, and wet cleaning can be used to remove acidic soot residues which can affect the metallic finish. We are careful not to wet clean too aggressively as this can wash off anything that is printed over the gloss finish.
