Smoke and Soot Removal for Residential and Commercial Customers
Customers have told us the aftermath of a first can be as emotional taxing as the fire that caused it. Soot, the particles left from the fire, may blanket over entire rooms, walls and floors. Soot removal can be difficult to get out of textiles and should be left to the experts. The same can be said about smoke removal. Smoke damage is typically the heavy small that has permeated every surface and crack including places you can’t see. Even after soot remediation and rooms are restored to its original condition, heavy odors can linger.
Smoke and Soot Removal from Ducts
Even if you can’t smell soot, it’s still there. Whether your system was running at any time during the incident or smoke managed to penetrate your duct system, you need it professionally removed. Particles of soot can be found throughout your systems and need a full cleaning, deodorizing and sanitation. Even after cleaning, the aftermath of a fire can be found on:
- Duct work
- Condenser and evaporator coils
- Motors, fans and other parts
- And more
If you hadn’t had your ducts or coils cleaned before the fire for quite some time, the dust already there could accelerate the accumulation of smoke and soot. Cleaning soot yourself is never recommended as soot can be greasy or oily and require special cleaners to break through the oil. Also, you’ll need to completely remove all contaminates so you are not re-soiling any areas. Only professional equipment is powerful enough to do so. Also, the extra work involved in removing oily soot can be damaging to delicate coils and other parts of your system if not handled by a professional smoke and soot removal company.
Smoke and Soot Removal for a Clean Start
Once your house or commercial building is restored, you’ll want to return to your life. Making sure all parts of your system are renovated will probably be one of your final steps. After all, you want to ensure you are not re-contaminating any areas or blowing soot and smoke to areas originally not affected. Additionally, the effects of fire smoke can be similar to second hand smoke and dangerous to young children, elderly or those with compromised health.
