Restoring Soot Damage In Your Oak Ridge Home
SERVPRO Technicians Can Utilize Many Pieces of Equipment and Cleaning Products to Remove Soot Residue
Apart from structural concerns or demolition, one of the hardest effects of a fire in your Oak Ridge home (aesthetically speaking) is soot damage. This film of carbon from the burning of materials spreads out widely throughout the affected areas of your home and beyond, requiring a lot of concentrated efforts to remove and restore.
Overcoming soot damages, or any fire damage effects in your Oak Ridge home for that matter, begin with finding the right restoration team. Often homeowners try to take care of portions of the cleanup and repairs on their own but fail to see that it is more cost-effective and less time-consuming to choose professional restoration services instead. Our SERVPRO technicians can respond quickly to the emergency and work efficiently to remove the effects of the fire.
The ease with which soot can get cleaned varies based on its thickness and the material affected. While much of these surfaces and materials can get restored on site using various pieces of equipment from dry/wet sponges to high-powered vacuums, other materials like fabrics and drapes can benefit from our SERVPRO technicians working along with local drycleaning to more efficiently get these materials ready for reinstallation. Esporta machine systems may be available to clean a wide variety of fabrics and soft materials at our facility.
Carpeting can also prove to be a hassle when it has gotten heavily affected by the soot damages. In these cases, concentrated cleaning efforts from bonnet cleaning to our Premier Showcase level of carpet treatment get used for bringing the fibers of this flooring back to life. Even with light or moderate soot coverage, this is a recommended approach. Often this material also requires focused deodorization to remove the smoke damage embedded into the individual fibers and the base/padding.
While soot damages are just one aspect of the effects that you might experience from a fire in your home, they are often one of the hardest for homeowners to have to see. Our SERVPRO of Loudon & Roane Counties fire restoration technicians can help you to overcome all of the obstacles in returning your home to preloss conditions stretching well beyond the soot damage.
