Strategies to Reduce Soot Migration in Port Orange Homes 

Fire loss effects can be a challenging obstacle for Port Orange homeowners to have to live with, let alone the difficulty that even our experienced restoration professionals have in recovering the loss. When combustion of fuels like wood and coal occur, soot can get produced. This hazardous presence in your property requires containment, cleaning, and full removal. 

Understanding how soot and other fire damage in Port Orange homes get addressed can help you to be ready for all of the processes necessary to return your property to preloss condition. The skilled technicians of our SERVPRO team, combined with their years of experience and cutting-edge equipment, can help to both contain and control soot migration in the house. The strategies we use to reduce the severity of soot effects are: 

Fire Debris Removal  

One of the first steps that our technicians can take when we arrive at your fire-damaged home is to assess your need for debris removal. Structural damages can leave behind heaps of rubble and sediment, all of which can serve as catalysts for soot and smoke concentrations. To reduce soot particles and foul odors, it might begin with debris removal. 

Abrasive Cleaning Techniques 

Media and soda blasting are two techniques that utilize highly pressurized air or water to remove layers of soot residues and other oily soils. These cleaning techniques can also help to reduce odors in the immediate areas as well, helping abrasive cleaning to be mutually beneficial in different areas. 

Controlled Demolition  

While it is always most desirable to remove soot and other residues from materials and contents without incident, this is not always possible. Instead, our SERVPRO team often must make challenging choices to remove damaged walls, ceilings, and floors to reduce soot presence in the house and to start the path of rebuilding. 

While we also have capable equipment that we can put in place like our air scrubbers to catch soot particles in the environment, these strategies are effective in slowing the severity and spread of soot threats after a fire.
