fire-damage-cleanup-and-restorationElimination of residual moisture left by the water used in stopping the fire is the first step in the process. When moisture and charred carbon material is combined, it sets up a breeding ground for mold and bacteria. When this mixture is not properly cleaned, the wood will begin to rot and this will cause further damage to the structure. A professional, high powered equipment in getting rid of all the water that was left in squelching fire is what the best smoke and soot damage reparation team utilizes.

Soot Damage Cleanup

Soot is oil-based in which it spreads easily throughout the area of your home. This is why professionals use special vacuums to remove all of the soot from all of the carpets and other materials in your home. When water-based cleaner is used to clean the area, the soot won’t be dissolved and would worsen the problem. Utilizing a brush to clean the surface is a no no because the soot will sink in deeper around the material.

Steps That Should Be Done By Home Owners Right After A Fire

Once the fire department has given clearance to go into the property, it is important to ventilate the area right away. All the windows should be opened allowing air to circulate inside the area in order to dry the entire area. When the odor of smoke and soot are released, this helps in eliminating the problem.

Keep in mind that this is not a good idea if you live in a warm climate and there is a chance that there is still water in the area. The best solution for that would be to keep the windows shut and turn on a dehumidifier. In case you stay in a cold place, you need to switch on the furnace as air could take care of the work. The furnace should run consistently until there is no presence of soot.

Drapes and carpet tend to hold water, which makes them a breeding area for mold. You should work on drying them out as soon as possible. It may be required to take out all the carpets out of your home. Whenever professionals work on the process, your property could get back into its usual state.
