Cleaning Smoke and Soot After Fire Damage in Glastonbury Homes 

Smoke and soot residues deposited on various surfaces after fire damage to your Glastonbury home can cause aesthetic and structural damage. SERVPRO® techs prioritize removing the deposited soils during the restoration process. 

SERVPRO techs use several cleaning strategies and methods after fire damage to your Glastonbury homes, depending on the type of soot and the surface involved. Techs predominantly use two types of cleaning methods-

  • Dry cleaning methods, and 
  • Wet cleaning methods

While the dry cleaning methods are effective in cleaning light to moderate non-greasy soot, restorers use wet cleaning methods for sticky and grimy soot.  

Surface Techniques to Clean Soot in Fire Damaged Homes

Surface techniques that SERVPRO techs to clean soot after fire damage in your Glastonbury home prevent the material from being saturated with the cleaning product. The goal is to avoid over-wetting and allow the surface to dry quickly. The following two surface techniques are quite popular-

  • Spray and wipe: As the name suggests, the techs spray the cleaning solution directly on the soiled surfaces and wipe off the residue. The technique works best on hard non-porous surfaces like wood and metal. 
  • Foam cleaning: The method is suitable for surfaces that could be damaged by excessive moisture. The restorers use foam generated by a cleaning agent rather than the cleaning liquid. It allows the techs to control the amount of water. SERVPRO techs sometimes use a pump-up sprayer to generate a drier foam for cleaning moisture-sensitive surfaces. 

Both these surface cleaning methods prevent the material from getting saturated with liquid and avoid any secondary damage due to excess moisture.
