Why Soot and Smoke Removal Include Residential Contents Cleaning in Tallahassee

When a fire loss occurs in your Tallahassee home, you might be shocked at the extent and severity even after what seems like minor fire. Smoke spreads quickly through a dwelling, drifting on air currents or through the HVAC system if left running. Structural components and fixtures attract soot throughout the house. Contents, from household goods through personal possessions, also risk exposure to the fire residues. Our professional training in all these cleaning needs is why homeowners need to call.

Fire Residues Are Corrosive and Toxic

Cleanup after Tallahassee residential fire damage can pose risks to the individuals completing it. Chemicals, gases, and particles created by the incomplete combustion of burned materials can be health hazards and need to be managed by trained technicians. Our employees complete core and advanced courses developed by the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) to be certified as Fire and Smoke Restoration Technicians (FSRT) and Contents Processing Technicians (CPT). The precautions we learn and implement during this training are critical for your family’s safety, why relying on our expertise is vital.

Pack-Outs Help Clean Contents and Speed Structural Remediation

Removing smoke and soot-damage contents to a secure place within another area of your home or at our production facility is best practices for two reasons. The contents get the attention needed from our specialized production technicians, and the cleared out spaces in your home are more easily cleaned and treated. Our Contents Claim Inventory Service (CCIS) keeps track of items moved, why SERVPRO can clarify restoration and replacement claims with your insurance company throughout the process.

Professional Techniques for Smoke Removal

Merely airing out a fire-damaged space or collection of contents is ineffective to remove smoke. Our team members include containment strategies in the overall mitigation and remediation plan, an important reason why SERVPRO has the reputation of delivering efficient fire recovery services safely. Creating workspaces with plastic sheeting barriers and the sealing properties of negative pressure air scrubbers both in your home and at our production facility promotes HEPA filtering and exhausting of airborne contaminants. 

Soot Removal Evaluation Followed by Appropriate Strategies

Fire deposits varying types of soot depending on the temperature, oxygen availability, and materials burned. Our training and experience permit a proper fit between the products, tools, and methods used to remove the soot either on structural surfaces or affecting the contents of your home. Our production facility and employees have resources such as ultrasonic immersion tanks, innovative washing and drying systems, deodorization and drying chambers, and other options to return your possessions to “Like it never even happened.” This broad range of options is why SERVPRO is an industry leader in fire damage restoration of homes and their contents.
