Post-fire Cleanup of Lenexa Homes Often Means Choosing The Best Cleanup For Soot Damage. 

Fires can destroy contents and building materials in your home, and worse than this, add a challenging deposit of soot and smoke damage to remove afterward. Soot removal is one of the key ingredients of complete, successful fire restoration.

The Type of Smoke Damage Present 

There are several types of smoke and soot residues that can exist after fire damage in Lenexa homes. What materials are involved in the combustion that creates aerosolized solids impacts the chemical makeup of the soils settling on surfaces. Changes in this composition change the smoke remediation approach.

Condition of the Underlying Host Materials

The inspection process can often require crew chiefs to assess the condition of affected materials thoroughly. Sensitive surfaces can have their finish ruined or become stained by acidic residues and soils, so a sampling of remediation strategies is common to determine the best cleaning approach moving forward.

Wet and Dry Cleaning Solutions for Soot Removal

When it comes to removing soot from the surfaces it impacts, we take the information we have gathered and put it to use. Because there are several strategies for reducing the severity of soot residue thickness, choosing the right approach can dramatically lessen restoration times.
