How Do I Restore my Wichita Home After a Fire?
How to Handle the Soot Covering Everything?
Cleaning soot off your contents and structure is a major challenge in every fire restoration project. Soot is the source of odor; it can be physically corrosive to your property and can be dangerous to breath. Besides that, based on what type of fire you had and what burned the soot will be different and will require different cleaning and restoration techniques based on the damage! Fortunately, our trained technicians know how to identify the type of soot and what processes we need to employ to properly clean it.
How do we start this process?
Sometimes we are called in to help secure a property with our board up services. Sometimes windows, doors or new holes are made unsecure from a fire or from the process of putting a fire out. We come out and board up the unsecure areas when you call. The cleaning process begins in the area which was the source of the fire. That area is where the soil is the strongest and typically where the most work needs to occur.
We begin with out least invasive process (dry cleaning with a dry sponge or HEPA Vacuum) before moving onto more invasive processes (wet cleaning with cleaning agents). We clean every surface such as walls, ceilings, floors, countertops, outlets etc.. We go room by room until all the affected areas have been cleaned and even clean and deodorize the contents of your home.
