Cleaning Up Smoke Damage in Pottsville Properties
Smoke and soot are formidable after a fire gets extinguished. With the high pressure created during combustion, soot and smoke residues can get forced into crevices and seams and plastered to vertical surfaces. Cleaning up after these conditions involves a combination of many remediation solutions beginning with chemical sponges and other dry cleaning choices. Wet cleaning is also possible with solvents and detergents when the present soil is deemed safe to clean in this manner, and more damage would not result.
Fire and Smoke Damage Odor Threats in Pottsville Homes
Another considerable obstacle for responding technicians to fire recovery is lingering odors produced by the combustion of specific fuels and materials. Overcoming these harsh smells can be challenging even with the advanced tools and products available to our experienced SERVPRO professionals. Clearing foul post-fire odors use foggers, hydroxyl machines, and ozone generators.
