SOOT & SMOKE REMOVAL
Fire Damage Cleaning and Recovery Services
It’s no secret that a fire can be one of the most damaging events for the health of a building. Fortunately, not all fires will bring a building down to the ground – if the fire is controlled quickly enough, much of the building can be saved and damage can be minimized.
Of course, even when the fire is controlled, there will be damage that needs to be addressed. You might have walls that need to be replaced, and there is likely smoke odors that need to be removed. To properly handle fire damage and get back to normal as soon as possible, reach out to Claremont for assistance.
Taking Care of Soot Problems
When organic matter burns, soot is produced. So, if your building has wood walls, those walls burning is sure to produce black soot that will settle on surfaces around the space. This soot needs to be thoroughly cleaned before your building will be ready for use once again.
Cleaning soot requires much more than just wiping it away. Fortunately, Claremont has the equipment necessary to do this job right from start to finish. Our approach will include powerful tools like air scrubbers, HEPA vacuums, and appropriate chemicals.
While performing soot removal, Claremont will also manage the other necessary steps of the fire recovery and restoration process.
