Smoke and Soot Cleaning and Restoration RI, MA, CT
During a fire, smoke can permeate walls
and other surfaces,flow around
plumbing systems, using holes around pipes to go from floor to floor, and drift through air ducts where the odor becomes
trapped. The soot which is oily can easily stain carpets, draperies and other
fabrics. Everything becomes shades of grey and black and the odor seems like it
will be there forever. If not properly removed by an Enviro-Clean (ECI) professional, smoke odor can return, therefore
you must remove smoke and soot before you attempt to clean or deodorize things.
Fire, smoke, and soot can cause
corrosive etching within 72 hours to certain items, which is another reason to
call on an ECI professional.
