Char and Soot Removal for Fire-Damaged Cary Properties

National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) data indicates that 26 percent of reported fires across the United States were home structure fires between 2015 and 2019. Fire departments around the country responded to an average of 346,800 of these residential fires each year. Even small-scale fires, like kitchen flare-ups, can impart hard-to-clean odors and residues in Cary homes.

SERVPRO fire restoration services in Cary respond to small and large-scale disasters alike. Technicians focus on remediating stains and odors and returning property to a clean, pre-damage state. This firm also performs rebuilding services for structures heavily impacted by fire damage.

Addressing heavy damages after a kitchen fire

Even small fires can leave heavy char and debris that require more extensive cleanup. Fortunately, SERVPRO has cleanup strategies that cover more in-depth cleaning needs for various soot-affected surfaces. In a kitchen fire, for example, technicians may:

  • Use abrasion blasting to provide effective char removal with minimal effect on the material. Some blast media, like soda ash and dry ice, can also mitigate odors to a degree
  • Perform manual cleanup of unfinished wall framing with scrapers and wire brushes to remove char
  • Deploy immersion cleaning solutions, like alkaline cleaners or ultrasonic cleaning to remove soot particles from heavily soiled items. Ultrasonic cleaning is especially effective for more delicate items like dishware, glassware, and chandeliers
  • Use dry cleaning sponges and gentle manual agitation to dislodge loose, dry soot soils before remediating more challenging stains. Technicians use HEPA-filter vacuums to collect soot particles. Air scrubbers and containment measures can prevent soot and odor-causing particles from traveling to other rooms during restoration
