Soot Damage Our fire damage resources give you all the information you need about fire damage restoration and soot damage cleanup.

Are you feeling overwhelmed by the aftermath of soot damage in your Plumsted home? Whether you’ve experienced a small kitchen fire or a larger-scale incident, SERVPRO of Jackson,
Lacey knows firsthand the importance of restoring your home to its former glory. Soot can cling to stubborn surfaces, leaving behind residue and a lingering odor that seems to get in every nook and cranny. So how do the seasoned experts tackle soot cleanup? SERVPRO breaks it down for us in four simple steps:

  1. Fire Damage Inspection-Emergency services are always the first on the scene. After they consider the property safe to enter, our
    soot-cleaning professionals come in to do an inspection of the damage.
  2. General Cleanup-Boarding up and tarp services, general clean up, and water removal/drying are all done prior to the soot
  3. Soot Cleanup-Specialized equipment is used to remove soot surfaces from the affected areas of your home. Each type of surface requires a different technique. Size and severity play a huge part in the cleanup process. A cleanup may have all four types of soot damage, or it may just have one. Dry smoke, wet smoke, protein residue, and petroleum residue are the types of soot damage that could be present.
  4. Odor Removal-Depending on the type of material that caught fire you might have lingering odors. The process for eliminating those odors is source removal, cleaning, and then deodorizing. However, if the case is more extreme the exposed surfaces might be sealed.

Dealing with soot cleanup can be a challenging task, that’s why it’s best to leave it up to our experts here at SERVPRO of Jackson, Lacey.
