Soot Removal in Erie, PA, Wheeling, WV, and Pittsburgh, PA
One of the main reasons that homeowners call in a professional service to perform cleanup after a disaster like a flood or fire is because one of these events can leave many different types of damage. Each type of damage may require special cleaning solutions, techniques, and tools. So even though you may start out thinking that you will save money by handling the cleanup yourself, in the long run, it may end up costing more. This is particularly true if you are not happy with the results of your efforts and end up having to hire someone to come in and clean it anyways.
After a fire, there can be several different types of damage that require cleanup. One of these is generated by soot. Soot is the name given to the residue that is left after a synthetic material, like nylon, polyester, or carbon fiber, is set ablaze. Since the average home contains plenty of items that are made up of synthetic materials, like couches, beds, and carpeting, there is usually a large amount of soot left behind after a fire.
Erie, Wheeling, and Pittsburgh Soot Damage? We Can Help!
Within the soot damage done to your home, there are several different types. Each of these types of damage can require a separate technique for removal. Wet smoke and dry smoke generate two different types of soot damage.
Wet smoke can generate a sticky residue which is difficult to remove from walls. Dry smoke leaves a dry, powder like residue. This type of damage is not as sticky and not as difficult to remove from walls but is more likely to land on furniture or flooring. There can be additional types of damage if you have a furnace or central heating unit which was affected by the fire.
