Sodo, WA Fire Damage Cleanup and Restoration

Fires can be destructive in commercial properties and large venues like Lumen Field or the John Stanford Center for Educational Excellence. Our SERVPRO team specializes in cleaning fire and smoke damage.   

The First Steps in Effective Fire Mitigation

Mitigating fire damage can be critical in preventing greater harm to the structure as restorers can enter the house after extinguishment. Initial actions such as fire debris removal reduced the presence of soot and smoke damage to make other recovery actions more productive.

What Are the Main Focuses of Fire Damage Cleanup in Sodo?

Because the appearance and impact of fires in homes and businesses can change so much from one to another, the priorities of cleanup change as well. It is always the objective of our team to return structures to preloss condition, but the path is taken to reach this point changes based on the needs of the property. Some of the necessary actions include:

  • Soot cleanup 
  • Fire restoration 
  • Smoke odor removal 
  • Fire-damaged content cleaning  

How Threatening is Soot to Sodo Homes? 

Soot damage can be among the most formidable obstacles that exist after fire damage. Because partial combustion of so many materials can generate these particles, and the perceived health concerns with exposure to these solids in the environment, overcoming present soot threats is vital. We have multiple solutions to accomplish this with products and equipment.
