Restoring smoke and soot damaged surfaces
Smoke and soot damage is a major problem in the restoration process. As byproducts of incomplete combustion, they smudge easily and cling aggressively on surfaces, materials, and flooring, causing severe damage to the walls, ceilings, flooring, etc.
A high oxygen fire leaves behind a dryer smoke residue, making the cleanup easier. On the other hand, a low oxygen fire leaves behind a wetter smoke residue, making the cleaning a little harder. Therefore, SERVPRO teams assess the situation, and depending on which fire occurred, we use appropriate cleaning methods.
Some specialized ways to clean soot include;
- Degreasing agents
- HEPA Vacuum cleaner
- High- and low-alkaline detergents
- Dry cleaning or chemical sponges
Since cleaning soot stains can become a dirty job, our crew considers specific cleanup procedures for every job site. Starting with a HEPA vacuum helps remove loose soot residues off the walls before washing. We rinse sponges in clean water between each swipe, ensuring that we remove the dirt from the surface. After wiping down the walls, we allow them to dry thoroughly before applying new paint or wallpaper.
