Restoring Fire and Smoke Damage
For most homeowners, a fire can be a traumatic experience. Whether the damage is minor or major, there is still clean-up to be done. Smoke leaves soot residue, and depending on the surface, restoration may involve dry cleaning and/or wet cleaning of ceilings, walls, floors and contents. Methods of cleaning also depend on the type of smoke produced by the fire. Not all soot residues are the same. Depending on the materials that burned, the soot left behind may be powdery, or leave particles that can be easily smeared. You might be able to see some of those particles in the form of "smoke webs", which look similar to spider webs, but will easily smear if you wipe them off. Different cleaning methods are used to remove the residues left behind, and our technicians are trained to recognize the procedures needed to clean up your home. If you have a fire in your home - no matter the size - call SERVPRO of Corpus Christi East and let us help you through the clean-up process.
