Soot and Smoke Damage Requires Thorough Cleaning Methods in Sparta Properties. 

Soot and smoke residues can mar and stain affected surfaces. Circulating particles can rest on building materials and contents to pose a challenge for cleaning technicians of our team.

How Does Smoke Damage Spread Through the Home?

One of the most challenging aspects of fire damage restoration for Sparta homes is the widespread threat of soot and smoke damage. Beyond harsh odors, microscopic soot particulates from partially combusted fuels can become aerosolized during the burning to circulate in the environment.

What Methods Work Best for Soot Removal? 

Choosing the best approach for removing smoke and soot damage often depends mostly on the affected materials and their current conditions. Evaluating the efficacy of specific cleaning practices allows our SERVPRO team to choose among:

  • Chem Sponges – These rubbery sponges trap loose soot and soil particles to clear mostly dry surfaces.
  • Media Blasting – Using high pressured air and various media, these machines can eliminate thick residues.
  • Wet Cleaning – Several solvents and detergents are available to technicians to loosen and wipe away residues.

Soot damage can cling to surfaces and pose significant threats to the occupants of the house. Our SERVPRO of Cumberland, Morgan & White Counties team has multiple options for cleaning up after these residues and soils. Call us today at (931) 250-5333.
