Ultrasonic cleaning is an extremely effective, non-invasive and flexible method used to remediate damage caused by soot and smoke deposits. These deposits can, depending on the circumstances of the fire or smoke event, penetrate deeply into the surface of the affected items.
Water damage left as a result of firefighting efforts can also leave unsightly stains or marks that can be treated with this powerful technique.
The ultrasonic cleaning system uses a high frequency signal within a purpose built cleaning tank that results in the creation of millions of “bubbles” that are ‘formed’ and ‘collapsed’ incredibly quickly. This activity releases energy within the system that literally “explodes” dirt from the item being cleaned, suspended as it is within the specially built container.
The addition of chemicals, detergents and heat can further improve the effectiveness of the process which must be closely monitored and controlled to ensure the best results.
