Fire & Water - Cleanup & Restoration

Soot Collected in Cobwebs in Phoenixville, PA

Sometimes after a fire damage occurs, the accumulation of soot and smoke damage on ceilings and walls may not be immediately visible to naked eye.  Oftentimes we rub a dry cleaning sponge along the surface area to evidence the degree of soot accumulation to show the homeowner and inform our cleaning approach.  In this Phoenixville, PA home, the cobwebs caught the soot and made the degree of damage apparent!  The reason that we often show the homeowner the degree of soot accumulation is that sometimes they may not realize how serious the damage is, and may be resistant to the thorough cleaning and fire damage restoration techniques that SERVPRO of North East Chester County describes in the job scope.  We have seen it all, and take no short cuts in making sure that smoke and soot are removed completely from fire affected homes to restore them to a clean and healthy state.  Luckily, this homeowner understood the dangers associated with smoke and soot, and we were able to clean the areas as proscribed, leaving walls, ceilings, etc. leaving things ready for a fresh coat of paint to cover up any permanent staining
