Fire and smoke damage restoration and remediation involve dozens of steps and approaches that must begin as soon as our professionals arrive. Mitigation of smoke threats is vital, as this can take many forms to compromise the safety and stability of your residence.

Soot and Smoke Residue Removal

Fire and smoke cleanup in Kansas City homes most directly point to the methods of our SERVPRO team for managing soot and smoke residues coming to rest on flooring, building materials, and contents. Based on the composition of these soils, multiple removals and recovery options are possible. While more abrasive and aggressive measures are sometimes necessary, lighter soot damage can be managed with:

  • Solvents
  • Wet wipe cleaning products
  • Chemical sponges
  • Dry vacuuming

Airborne Contaminant Regulation

When soot and smoke solids become aerosolized and moved through the environment, these airborne effects can cause health effects. In the earliest stages of fire restoration, our team has personal protective equipment like respirators and SCBA gear for protection. We rely on HEPA filtration to trap these circulating particles.

Malodor Spread in Fire-Damaged Homes

Another way that smoke can impact a property after fire extinguishment is through harsh odors. Combustion of various materials can create volatile environments overwhelmed by offensive smells. We have cleaning products and counteracting approaches to reduce the severity of these odors throughout the property. We utilize powerful deodorization tools in our inventory to finalize the removal of this challenging effect.

Understanding the impact of smoke damage on your home and business might encourage homeowners to consider their need for professional restoration and recovery services. Fires can be heavily destructive to a residence, making the mitigation that our SERVPRO of Kansas City Midtown team provides vital to protect the property and its contents.
