Fire restoration hinges on efficient smoke damage management in North Kingstown homes.

Fire and smoke damage can present themselves in several forms after a fire gets extinguished, yet few are as hazardous or threatening as soot. These microscopic particles can spread quickly in the environment, traveling the HVAC system and through openings to impact an area much larger than the initial damage zone. 

What Methods Does SERVPRO Use to Eliminate Soot? 

Several strategies get implemented for soot removal and fire restoration in North Kingstown homes, including:

  • Chemical Sponges – Often, our chem sponges are natural rubber compositions with large pores, which can remove much of this soil and debris when run across soot-damaged surfaces.
  • Soda Blasting – This process is an abrasive cleaning technique with sodium bicarbonate particles forcefully propelled with pressurized air against soot-covered surfaces. 
  • Controlled Demolition – When other abrasive tactics are not possible, removing the damaged materials can be the only remaining suitable solution.

With how formidable soot damage can be during fire restoration, it is important to have skilled professionals to help protect underlying materials and affected contents. Our SERVPRO of Washington County is ready 24/7 at (401) 315-2337.
