We can deploy air filtration and start debris removal to reduce the severity of soot.

Where Soot and Smoke Damage Are Found

Before full fire damage restoration for Bloomingdale homes can begin, our production manager can catalog damage and exposure to create a custom mitigation strategy. Often the worst of soot and smoke soils exists the closest to the ignition point, with fewer deposits occurring the farther from this point damage reaches.

Types of Soot Damage Affect Salvageability 

Multiple types of soot residues could impact area homes. Much of these variances deal with the heat of the fire and the affected materials. Each requires a different use of dry and wet cleaning solutions to resolve. Some of these outcomes include:

  • Dry Smoke
  • Wet Smoke
  • Protein Residues

Cleaning to Protect Underlying Substrates 

The focal point of choosing the right restoration and smoke remediation process for present soot damage is protecting the underlying materials. Some surfaces and substrates are more sensitive to marring, etching, and acidic wear. The initial inspection can determine where cleaning and soot removal must happen and where controlled demolition and other aggressive measures are the only suitable solutions.

Cleaning up after smoke and soot damage can be a formidable task for even our experienced restoration team. We provide accurate information about the restoration process to reconfigure and rework recovery solutions to suit changing environmental conditions and affected materials. Our SERVPRO of Central Bloomingdale, Fish Hawk team is standing by 24/7 to help at (813) 460-0204.
