Fire Damage Cleaning Smoke and Soot Damage From Your Farmington Home Protect Your Farmington Home from Smoke and Fire Damage with a Smoke Detector--SERVPRO Tip

Small Fires Still Require Removal of Smoke and Odor Residues

Small kitchen fires in your Farmington home might not come with the devastating damages that some unfortunate homeowners experience, but it is something that leaves lingering effects to face. While these smaller scale incidents might not leave a lot of structural concerns to overcome, soot and smoke damages are enough to make continued living in your home a difficult thing to do. Fortunately, professional restoration services can help you to overcome these obstacles and get your home back to the way it used to be.
 
Among the fire damages that could affect your Farmington home, regardless of the severity of this fire, smoke and soot concerns are among the most common. Restoring your home is nothing that you should have to contend with alone, and professional restorers like our SERVPRO team can help you get the results that you want more quickly.
 
Soot is a black film that adheres to walls, ceilings, floors, ductwork, and other materials during a fire. Our professionals have multiple ways of overcoming this situation, usually depending on the location of the soot and how easily it can get removed. Often a higher powered vacuum is sufficient to clean up the bulk of this present soot, though sometimes sponges and elbow grease are necessary when the film is a little more stubbornly adhered to the material.
 
Smoke damage is one of the final things that our SERVPRO team works to remove, as this process requires our air scrubbers and possibly thermal foggers. The foggers work to break apart foul odor molecules left behind to deodorize the area and leave no discernable scent behind. Air scrubbers trap and catch loose debris and particles in the air following the restoration process and help to make the deodorization more effective. These devices can utilize both HEPA filtration for removing airborne particulates and activated carbon filters for neutralization.
 
While a small kitchen fire might not force you to relocate while restoration is underway, the lingering effects from the incident can keep you from being comfortable in your own house. You can trust our SERVPRO of Burnsville / Lakeville fire restoration specialists to help you overcome the obstacles you face between current conditions and a fully restored home. We try to make you feel "Like it never even happened." Give us a call today at (952) 846-4400.
