No matter how large or small the fire in your kitchen, it can cause significant damage that is difficult to clean up. The layer of soot left on surfaces is one of the most frustrating aspects. Professional restoration companies should be able to quickly clean up after a fire and then they can handle cleaning up walls and ceilings. If soot is left on chrome furniture, it can cause irreparable damage to the rest of the furnishings. 

It can also be dangerous if improper cleaning techniques are used. It can: 

  • Inject odorous soot deeper into surfaces
  • Cause stains
  • Furniture with restoration potential should be destroyed.

What is the best dry cleaning sponge for fire damage clean-up?

SERVPRO techs can bring dry cleaning sponges to your home in order to restore fire damage. High heat fires can cause light and powdery residues to organic materials. Liquids can exacerbate the problem by causing the residues to stick to the surfaces and making it more difficult to remove. 

Techs use dry cleaning sponges to remove the soot from surfaces. The techs turn the sponge each time and dispose of any residues. This allows painted walls to be restored without the need for removal. It also saves homeowners the time and money of replacing them. The techs can use a sealant to give a new start to walls and ceilings that have particulate embedded too deep.

You must act quickly to minimize the damage and restore your home to its original condition as soon as possible.
