Soot-Damaged Surfaces in Staten Island Homes

Removing soot is a priority for fire damage restoration, and this process begins with surface cleaning strategies like chemical sponges and oxidizing agents. Alkaline cleaners can help to balance the pH of acidic soot particles on surfaces to reduce their corrosive properties and protect the underlying substrate.

Removing the Harsh Odors After a Fire

Odors can be one of the more challenging aspects of fire damage recovery. Removing threatening malodors from the structure requires a combination of deodorization products and equipment. Neutralizing agents can be dispersed with thermal foggers, and equipment utilizing UV cleaning in combination with HEPA filtration can improve environmental conditions.
