Smoke and Soot Damage Remediation

12/26/2018 (Permalink)

When assessing fire damage, smoke is a focal point. Although fire is the cause of the most noticeable damage that happens in a home, the least conspicuous hazards that are harmful health-wise are smoke and soot. In addition, smoke is the number one cause of death for fire victims.

Soot, a black powdery material produced by burning oil-based coal or wood items, is not difficult to distinguish from smoke. The circulation of carbon particulates from this matter settles on surfaces, resulting in lung diseases or death. When soot contaminants fill the home, an evaluation of the areas affected has to be completed. Using a fire restoration specialists for this process is the best alternative to find out whether restoration is possible.  SERVPRO makes it possible.

Water Damage

Another important detail that is frequently unnoticed after a severe fire is water damage. It is the last thing that comes to mind when faced with fire damage. Once fires are contained, affected areas should be dried completely to prevent added loss and damage to property. SERVPRO utilizes industrial air movers and dehumidifiers to dry carpet padding, carpet, furniture and other items saturated with water.
