After a small fire or furnace puffback, it’s not uncommon for a property owner to attempt a clean-up themselves. However, this can often create additional problems and add additional time and cost to the restoration process.
Soot is a particularly frustrating substance that does not respond well to typical cleaning methods. As you can see in the picture above, the client in this instance attempted to clean the soot using a household cleaning agent. The result was rubbing the soot deeper into the painted surface, creating additional damage. The clean contrast line is an example of what we are able to do with a single pass of a “chem sponge.” Contrary to its name, chem sponges contain no chemicals, but they are outstanding at removing a large portion of the soot before the final cleaning.
The final cleaning can be completed using proprietary cleaning solutions that prevent the soot from “setting” and have an added benefit of removing the unpleasant odor.
Action item: When a client calls with soot damage to their home, the best advice we give them is to refrain from touching or attempting to clean the soot. Then, call the professionals at ServiceMaster to get everything back to normal quickly. If there is also water damage from the fire department putting out the fire, we can be there to dry it out quickly and return you home or business back to normal.
