After the fire is out-smoke and soot removal in Litchfield County
Not only can the flames of a fire cause enormous damage, the ash, soot and smoke residue that remains will make the home almost noxious to live in. Both can create irritating odors, discolor walls or ceilings and cause breathing issues if there is a high concentration of ash left over.
Even a small home fire can cause a great amount of damage due to soot and smoke damage. We have arrived at jobs where a small kitchen fire may have caused minimal structural damage, yet smoke has managed to permeate items throughout the home and soot has covered every surface of the home. In the pictures, the home doesn't show much damage, yet the clean up job is a big one.
When called to a job in the New Milford, Ct area, SERVPRO of Newtown and Southern Litchfield County crew members have the expertise and equipment to properly treat all surfaces of ash and soot. Because ash can reactive negatively to certain cleaning agents, possibly causing permanent damage and toxic fumes, this is not a job that can be done with store bought cleaning agents. We have a large production facility in which we clean and store personal belongings off site while the home restoration is ongoing.
Smoke odors are extremely hard to remove and can’t be done with standard equipment. Fortunately, at SERVPRO of Newtown and Southern Litchfield County, we keep thermal foggers and other sophisticated odor removal equipment on hand to counter noxious smoke odors. We can reach into all parts of your Fairfield County home, including inside floors and walls.
