Cleaning Soot From Your Home
What About the Soot on Various Surfaces?
Charring is a typical result of a fire from the heat generated by the flames. During a standard restoration project, we work to restore, resurface, and replace materials as needed. We utilize a broad range of proven techniques and specialized equipment to handle even the most stubborn residue from soot and smoke. For example, soda blasting with a combination of sodium bicarbonate and pressurized air helps to blast away slight charring and residue carefully. The bonus is that the sodium bicarbonate is a deodorizer, so it serves a dual purpose of battling smoke odors.
The nature of particles from soot and smoke is that they settle on ceilings, walls, and various flat surfaces quickly after a fire. DIY methods alone are often very time-consuming and may be extremely counterproductive. Our skilled technicians on the job bring best practices for each unique situation as we use dusting, vacuums, pressure washers, and dry or wet methods for handling the soot throughout your Hayward home. During this cleanup, our previously mentioned HEPA filtration also ensures that any particles that we loosen do not become airborne for redistribution throughout the interior.
For any areas that call for further intervention, we put controlled demolition practices into place to ensure restoration to like-new condition.
