Fire Damage can Make Your Santa Ana Home a Sooty Mess

8/24/2018 (Permalink)

Soot can cause a tremendous amount of damage to your belongings and furniture.

Soot and Fire Damage Can Wreak Havoc on Your Santa Ana House

The smoke that spreads throughout a Santa Ana home when something catches on fire can create many problems for people. A fire in your home easily and quickly damages things by burning them, but soot from the smoke ends up on everything, even if it never burned.

When you have fire damage in your Santa Ana residence, you also need to clean up the soot. It ends up everywhere and sticks to everything. Touching things in your home can leave your fingertips blackened with this substance. Some things that burn in a house can make soot that is difficult to remove. Washing with soap and water might seem to make this stickier soot spread around instead of rinse away down the drain.

SERVPRO technicians care about the families in our area and know that making your home clean and soot-free is crucial to your children's healthy growth and development. We also understand that you want the grimy, greasy soot removed from your home's furnishings as soon as possible. We use special cleaning liquids that cut through the greasiness and lift it away from surfaces.

We can get your photo frames and the glass covering your family portraits beautiful quickly. Other items in your home, like cabinets and dressers, desks and tabletops, and the different figurines and other objects you collected, can hold much soot. This aspect of fire damage can seem to never end unless a professional service steps in to help.

The cleaning crews at SERVPRO work alongside our fire damage restoration workers and other expert technicians. We remove water from fire-fighting efforts, pull out and bag up charred and blackened things, clean soot off everywhere we find it, and then make sure that we put an end to the terrible smell caused by the fire.
