SERVPRO Can Remove Stubborn Smoke and Soot Stains from South Kingstown Properties

Returning to your home after a fire can be traumatic. Fires produce excessive amounts of smoke, heat, and pressure, making properties look beyond repair. While some of these damages may be permanent, using a professional restoration service can significantly increase the likelihood of structures or contents returning to a preloss condition. 

We can work on:

  • Fire damaged homes
  • Smoke remediation
  • Fire and smoke damage restoration and cleanup

The challenging aspect of fire damage restoration in South Kingstown is in understanding how surfaces interact. Scrubbing a surface, known as agitation in restoration, can dislodge soot or smoke residues. However, some soot bond on a molecular level to surfaces making scrubbing ineffective. Equally, a steel wool or scouring pad can damage the material surface of the item you are cleaning. 

  • Abrasive cleaning uses liquid cleaners with abrasive ingredients to reduce smoke residues or deposits.
  • Stain scrub is a liquid abrasive cleaner that can be effective on wet smoke or soot.
  • Extra care is taken when applying abrasives to sensitive or finished surfaces. 

We can remove soot and smoke from your home. Contact SERVPRO of Washington County for fire damage restoration at (401) 315-2337.
