Fires can be devastating. Recovering from them can be time consuming. SERVPRO of Carbondale/Clarks Summit/Old specializes in the clean up and restoration of fire damaged properties.

Cleaning of soot, the product of smoke is tedious. Every surface must be "touched" using specialized cleaning and odor reducing tools. Chemical sponges are used on most surfaces because they remove the soot without smearing and embedding it into the surface. If not properly cleaned; odor will persist. With that being said, this is one of the main reasons to call a certified restoration company. A fire clean up is not a DIY project.

Media blasting is another tool used by clean up professionals to ensure proper cleaning and odor removal. Either sand based material or dry ice is used to literally blast away the soot. Media blasting is used primarily on hard surfaces like concrete or wood. The amazing thing about media blasting is there is no mess.

So in the event of fire damage always call the professionals to ensure proper restoration.
