Our Fire and Soot Damage Restoration Services
Since each smoke and fire damage situation is a little different, each one requires a unique solution tailored for the specific conditions. We have the equipment and experience to restore your fire, smoke and soot damage.
Different Types of Smoke Require different cleaning methods. There are two different types of smoke–wet and dry.
Wet Smoke – Plastic and Rubber
Low heat, smoldering, pungent odor, sticky, smeary. Smoke webs are more difficult to clean.
Dry Smoke – Paper and Wood
Fast burning, high temperatures, heat rises therefore smoke rises.
Protein Fire Residue – Produced by evaporation of material rather than from a fire
Virtually invisible, discolors paints and varnishes, extreme pungent odor.
Before restoration begins, SERVPRO of Beachwood/Shaker Heights/Cleveland Heights will need to determine which type of smoke damage occurred. The cleaning procedures will then be based on that information. We will take the extra time to ensure the soot damage is removed prior to placing your contents back into your home or business.
As many of us know from sitting by the bonfire or your wood-burning fireplace in your home, soot travels throughout the air leaving a thin layer of what appears to be black dust. That dust is made up of a number of carbon particles that contains high levels of carcinogens. After a fire the smoke and soot damage can travel all throughout the home, regardless of where the fire originates.
Please call SERVPRO of Beachwood/Shaker Heights/Cleveland Heights at 216-464-4498 and let us take over the stress of cleanup which will allow you to focus on what's important. We will treat your family with empathy and respect and your property with care.
