Your Kewaunee, WI Home vs. Soot Removal

Posted at 3:28 PM

The fire is out in your Kewaunee, WI, home and you’ve already taken all the right steps to start your fire recovery. You’ve stopped it from spreading with the help of the fire department, contacted your insurance agent, gotten in touch with the fire damage experts at ServiceMaster Recovery by Restoration Holdings, and gathered together all of the information and paperwork you’ll possibly need. It’s over…so why on earth do you still have to worry about soot removal?

Depending upon the extent of the fire damage, soot removal can be a simple affair or an ongoing struggle against constantly spreading sediment. Soot may not burn your house to the ground, but leaving it untreated in even the tiniest amounts can turn into a real pain in the rear…or the lungs. Constantly breathing in smoke particulates is the easiest way to cause throat irritation, or trigger asthma and allergies. And aside from being irritating to humans, animals and small pets with delicate lungs can be negatively impacted as well. Because of this, speedy soot removal can prevent your pets from developing breathing problems and other health issues.

One of the worst characteristics of soot, in general, is that the soot you see may not be all the soot there is. Because of the aerodynamic nature of these particulates, soot may be on your floor and flat surfaces, but may also adhere to ceilings, walls, and vents as well. This is one of the reasons that fire damage recovery is a multi-step process. Once a fire has affected your home, properly clearing the air and surfaces of soot can feel like an uphill battle. Fortunately, it isn’t a battle you have to fight alone.

Soot isn’t just an annoying byproduct of fire damage, it’s just another stage in the fire process. Fight back today.
