Are Chemical Sponges Common in Everett House Fire Restoration?
Cleaning soot and smoke residues is a top priority for fire restorers in Everett homes.
With fire restoration and cleaning, the application of wet cleaning products is not always advisable. In some situations, this can lead to smudging, smearing, and staining. Instead, removing soot and smoke residues can often fall to a product called a chemical sponge. This is a popular option for our SERVPRO restoration team because it does not introduce moisture to the equation and can manage dry particles and residues on walls, wood, and other hard items like porcelain or metal.
The Type of Damage Matters with Soot Cleaning
It is critical to identify the type of smoke damage present before fire restoration in Everett homes begins. Job scoping can often determine the residues and affected materials, helping our responding technicians to determine the ideal approach and products for cleaning and recovery.
Are There Other Methods for Soot Removal?
The application of these rubber sponges can often erase dust, soot, and other debris coating large areas. When wet smoke damage or complicated residues and soils exist, the process for removing the damage varies as well. In these situations, our SERVPRO restorers might resort to:
- Wet Cleaning
- Media Blasting
- Controlled Demolition
Many surfaces can be left covered in acidic soils and debris particles with how violent and destructive house fires can be. Our SERVPRO of South Everett team can help. Call us today at (425) 367-4484.
