Can All This Soot Be Removed After A Fire In My Downtown Manhattan Home?
SERVPRO Technicians Are Soot Removal Experts in Downtown Manhattan
If a fire breaks out in your Downtown Manhattan home, SERVPRO technicians are ready to go. The longer the premises go without cleanup, the more you risk losing. We strive to restore as much as possible instead of merely replacing the structure or content.
Can Soot Get in My Ductwork?
You need to shut off your HVAC system as soon as possible. Do not wait for the professionals as airborne particulates can spread via the HVAC system to other areas in the home. Once a scope is done, and the fire restoration needed in your Downtown Manhattan home is outlined, we can clean the ductwork. If necessary, we can apply sealants to the interior to prevent lingering odors.
Can You Get rid of Soot Smells?
Smoke residue and soot leave unpleasant odors that need appropriate mitigation. Unless they are taken care of properly, the smells linger. Our certified technicians understand how to determine the type of soot and the proper cleaning method. We do the following to remove odors:
- Use the appropriate cleaning products to match the soot on surface areas
- Use advanced deodorization methods and equipment
- Use sealants to lock in mild odors that are left after cleaning
The type of soot determines the actions needed. Our techs can employ several deodorization methods. Thermal fogging disperses particles that pair with the odors in the air. This action then neutralizes the smells. Ozone machines oxidize foul odors, but this is only used in extreme circumstances. Hydroxyl generators use UV lights to create hydroxyl molecules that change the makeup of the soot rendering them scentless.
Our technicians are available 24/7 to provide fire restoration to homes in our community. Our goal is to return your home to preloss condition and leave it, “Like it never even happened.” Contact SERVPRO of Alphabet City/Downtown Manhattan at (646) 665 - 4195 for expert fire restoration service.
