Soot and Smoke Damage

Fire Damage Restoration

To take a sideways look at an old saying, where there’s fire damage, there’s smoke damage, but at the same time smoke can leave an awful lot of damage even when there’s no actual fire. Providentially, ServiceMaster of the Upstate is fully equipped to handle all elements of smoke damage clean-up, including soot removal, thorough cleaning, decontamination, and odor removal.

With walls and ceilings, redecoration may be more cost-effective than extensive smoke damage cleaning. We wash down the surfaces and seal them, to seal in stains and smells, and then redecorate.

As regards items such as carpets, curtains, and clothing, we will clean and decontaminate them on- or off-site, as appropriate, and can also store them until you’re ready to put them back into place.

Potential Risks to Your Home From Smoke After a Fire

It is highly recommended that smoke or soot damage should be cleaned up as soon as possible to prevent secondary damage to your property. Smoke particles left on surfaces will react with the environment, especially where water moisture is present in the air, and become acidic.

The acidic by-product will etch and ‘eat’ into a wide range of surfaces increasing the chance of a lingering odor even after a redecoration. In addition, as unprotected wood surfaces expand and contract the longer smoke or soot is present the further this will work its way into the wood increasing the cost of sanding down and redecoration if not cleaned effectively. Soot damage can also have serious adverse effects on any textile materials that are left untreated and cleaned increasing the change that they will become unsalvageable.

Our fully-qualified technicians have years of experience and use only state-of-the-art equipment to carry out a full restoration process, including odor removal, to restore your belongings and make your property safe again.
