One thing Jacksonville property owners should not do on their own is house fire cleanup. Using the incorrect technique for smoke damage removal can result in grinding the soot more deeply and staining. Handing the job over to SERVPRO guarantees the best outcome.

All types of fire damage in Jacksonville properties leave behind different types of smoke damage. SERVPRO technicians are careful in the methods they choose to remove residues on walls and surfaces in a residential or commercial building. The techs test the residues to determine if they are wet or dry smoke-type and choose the application and cleaning agents accordingly. Soot can pit or mar chrome and metal, so the techs typically clean and wrap those areas first; common examples are faucets and the handles on bathroom or kitchen cabinets. Wet smoke is one of the most difficult to remove and frequently requires agitation or immersion cleaning methods.

Smoke Damage Removal Methods

  • Chemical sponges for picking up dry smoke residues
  • Cleaning solutions with solvents for stuck-on wet smoke
  • Soda or sponge blasting on framework or masonry to remove residual soot stains
