Many homeowners consider taking care of whatever cleaning and restoration work they feel they can handle in their East Brunswick homes before contacting professional restorers. Not only can this allow specific fire loss effects to worsen, but it can irreparably stain and destroy surfaces cleaned improperly.

Regarding professional fire cleanup in East Brunswick homes, our SERVPRO professionals have trusted tactics to reduce the severity and spread of destructive loss effects like smoke and soot.

What are Cleaning Approaches for Soot? 

Soot is an acidic layer of particulates created from incomplete combustion of fuels like wood and coal. Because most homes have wood framing at a minimum, soot is a common threat to surfaces requiring a delicate removal approach. Depending on the material affected and the thickness of the residue, removing soot could require:

  • Abrasive cleaning
  • Vacuuming
  • Soda blasting
  • Water-based chemical agents
  • Controlled demolition

With soot residues on surfaces, cleaning and restoring your home can be a complicated procedure for homeowners. Let our SERVPRO of East Brunswick / Princeton Meadows team make it “Like it never even happened” by calling (732) 432-9800.
