Reducing Damage Due to Soot Residues and Smoke Odors

Soot Residues

 The longer soot residues are present in your home and on your belongings, the more damage they cause. Our fire damage restoration technicians will work quickly to clean the soot residues by taking the following steps:

  • Create Proper Ventilation: As part of the cleanup process, our skilled technicians will ensure your house is well-ventilated. We’ll utilize specialized ventilation and air moving equipment to vent smoke, soot, and odors from your home
  • Prevent the Spread of Residues: To prevent soot residues from spreading to unaffected areas of your home during cleanup, our technicians clean from the ceiling to the floor. Otherwise, soot residues can become dislodged and redeposited over things that have already been cleaned.
  • Use Appropriate Cleaning Techniques: Not all soot residue is the same. Depending on the type of fire and what was burned, our technicians will need to use different techniques for cleaning soot damage. For example, due to their training and experience, when dealing with acidic soot, our technicians know to neutralize it with alkaline cleaners.

Smoke Odors

The worst thing about smoke odors is how they continue to linger, even after the house has been thoroughly cleaned. Does this mean fire damage remediation has not been performed correctly?

Not exactly. Smoke odors seep into all the crevices and places that cannot be cleaned. Thanks to our advanced equipment, such as thermal foggers capable of creating a deodorizing fog, we are able to treat smoke odors in every corner of your home.
