What Not to Do Cleaning a Kitchen Fire

6/14/2016 (Permalink)

By attempting to clean a kitchen fire in Peckville, the homeowner unknowingly used an improper technique causing this staining.

This picture shows the result of the homeowner attempting to clean soot off a kitchen ceiling following a protein fire by using a wet rag and a household cleaning product. Unfortunately, all this did was embed the soot into the sheet rock causing staining. The proper cleaning technique for cleaning a protein fire is to first use a chemical dry sponge. The sponge allows for a proper cleaning before we seal and paint.
If your home or business experiences a fire, always call a professional cleaner to avoid making the problem worse. SERVPRO of Carbondale/Clarks Summit/Old Forge employs professionally trained technicians who use the latest methods to clean and repair fire damage. Fires are not universal nor should the cleaning methods used be universal.
