Fire & Water - Cleanup & Restoration

The Soot is on the Walls

When fire damage occurs, there is always damage outside of the initial burned area. Porous areas absorb the smell of smoke and any surface can be covered in light or thick layers of soot. The soot can stain and make for an unsightly addition to your home or business. Our contents and cleaning crews make it a point to tackle every surface possible. The wall in the pictures here was cleaned by our team after a fire left its mark in this home, and as you can see our team was successful in getting the wall bright and shining again. This goes to show that soot is not a problem if you get the right team and the right equipment to take care of it!
